Please help with sublimation hardware question

Posted on Thu, 24 Jun 2004 at 11:55



Hi,

Can someone please help me with some information?

Sawgrass Technologies has a system that allows you to apply sublimation ink (with a laser printer) on 100% cotton t's. It is called the Natura system.
It uses a very special sublimation ink that they developed.

The problem with the system (at least for a low budget start-up) is that it is VERY expensive to purchase. Mainly because of the 6K$ printer that comes with it.

My question is:
Can someone please tell me of another company that I can buy the special toner from that will do the same thing?

Preferably that will work with several different laser printers.

If you are not familiar with Natura, You can check it out here: http://www.naturaprint.com/home/

(My goal is to be able to print an image from my computer (with a laser printer) onto transfer paper and heat press it onto 100% cotton t-shirts)

Thank you for you help in this matter,

John Dumas

Hello, I have a pheonix electrostatic printer, 36" print and it is a sublmation printer. They do not make it anymore but this one is brand new and the tonner is easy to get. I have pics and can ship most anywhere. This will do what you are asking, Print to cotton, for 1400.00. Let me know 503-591-9921.

Hello John,

I have th Natura system, and though it is expensive, you can re-coupe your money fairly quickly. The toners are important, but the Key to the whole Natura system is the clear mask that goes on afterwards. It leaves a very small, and probably the best I'v ever seen, hand around the print. barely noticable. I've had mine for about a year and love it. I'm putting my business up for sale and I may have my system available in the very near future if interested. If not, you can't go wrong with it, it's FOOLPROOF. If you want to call me and have any questions, cell425-888-5144........Jim...Alpine Trophy & Signs 425-888-1911
