I have never known a laser printer use sublimation inks its normally an inkjet printer for sublimation and lasers normally use special transfer paper............... but i may be wrong. If i am i will post another comment when i have made a few enquiries for you.
we use Laser Image Transfer from Techsoft in textiles and it's a specofic printer, the result are ok but i do love my ricoh dye sub printer.
do a huge range of papers some of which appear to be designed for laser printers, however I would check for specific printer lists as they can run at different temperatures and so are not suitable for all printers
mrichards73I am looking to invest in some kit for laser sublimation printing. The department currently has an A3 laser epson replacement ink cartridge from InkJetSuperStore.com on a loan deal where all the inks are included with the price. Can any laser printer be used for sublimation printing? All the info I could find states that the ink is just regular ink, only the fusers have been modified - and I am not sure if this is just sales speak to get you to buy the extra kit. Does anybody currently use a regular laser for sublimation and does it work well?
That is a good investment. But before plunging in to that kind of business, do a bit of a research if your money is worth the risk. I have heard good things about such business but take cautions before anything else. And go for Epson printer products
