Siser EasySubli

Siser EasySubli
Thanks to the efforts of Siser® and Sawgrass™, there is finally a solution for sublimating full color photographic images onto cotton and dark colored fabrics! While Siser® recommends using EasySubli™ inks, we've achieved fantastic results using the SubliJet® HD inks. This means, there is no need to change out your existing ink system, although adding an additional Sawgrass™ SG400 or SG800 with EasySubli™ inks would be a great addition to any shop!

The two different print systems Siser carries is the Siser® EasySubli® SG500 Print System - 8.5x14 and Siser® EasySubli® SG1000 Print System - 11.7.

There are a few different ways to use this innovative new process, each yielding great results, and we have outlined the methods for you below. Before using your EasySubli™ vinyl, we recommend you watch the video below and to contact tech support to set you up with the best profiles based on your computer, printer, and software.

Like Siser® Glitter HTV, EasySubli™ is heat transfer vinyl that can be sublimated. This matte version allows sublimation ink to permanently adhere producing a more vibrant color than can be obtained by inkjet printers.

What role does Sawgrass EasySubli™ ink play?
Sawgrass created EasySubli™ inks to be used in conjunction with the EasySubli™ HTV. The inks can be used in both the SG400 and SG800 printers. Sublijet HD can also be used.

Absolutely. EasySubli™ was designed to be used ONLY with sublimation inks and printers

What materials can EasySubl™ Heat Transfer Vinyl be applied to?
One of the most valuable assets of EasySubli™ is its ability to be applied to 100% Cotton, Poly/Cotton Blends, and 100% Polyester materials. You MUST wait at least 24 hours before the first wash and be sure to always wash cold with mild detergent

How important is it to wait for the ink to dry before pressing?
