    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about which desktop sublimation printer might be a good substitute for a Mutoh RJ900. I'm looking for a desktop for smaller orders so I can use my Mutoh for our larger runs. Thanks in advance.

    T CampbellT Campbell I hear Epson has a Surecolor F570 24" desktop version out now. The ink is super cheap and goes into ink tanks. Cartridge free. I believe they run about $2495 and come with inks and paper. Hope this helps. Otherwise the Ricoh Sawgrass SG Series printers. Though ink costs are much much higher on the Sawgrass.

    We have the sawgrass, great for loading little sheets for doing mugs etc but the ink is quite pricey. Pennies in the grand scheme of things though

    Are you able to profile the desktops like you would the larger printers? I'm hoping to get them to match as closely as possible.

    Your welcome....@T Campbell That I am not sure about, profiling. I would hope so. Thus far great reviews. They are on back order. Here is a youtube video Conde' posted three months ago. The colors are stunning.

    Hi, if you're interested I have a 3-4 month old VJ 628 which is the small format (24" wide) equivalent of the 900. It's set up as an 8 color sawgrass right now but can also be converted to 4 color for more speed. It's a great little printer and we use it for small format goods and such but most of our files for old clients are already set up for wider format (we have JV300 and JV33's as well) and we're just not using it as much as we were hoping. It was purchased from Conde. I'm not sure on the price but I'm open to any offers if anyone is interested. Otherwise we'll probably post it on ebay. I owned two RJ 900's before as well and the VJ 628 is similar but it's definitely a nicer build quality and more refined. The 900's were awesome run them until they die printers though, I miss ours...

    A dye-sublimation printer is a computer printer (sublimation printer amazon) which uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, or fabric.
