About Sublimation Ink
A dye sublimation printer requires sublimation ink in order to print onto various textiles. Used primarily by advertising companies to print images and text onto soft materials, sublimation printing most typically utilises the CMYO colours of cyan, magenta, and yellow. This is different from the CMYK colour system, which includes black ink. Instead, a clear overcoat ink replaces the black and protects the image from UV-induced discolouration, moisture and air. Although CMYO colours are more common, it is nevertheless possible to buy black ink according to the CYMK colour system, as some sublimation printers, such as some Epson printing systems for commercial or domestic use, do use this system. In any event, sublimation printing allows for vivid colour reproduction and fantastic print quality, so you must ensure that you choose only high-quality inks to optimise printing results. eBay features a variety of sublimation dye inks. Choose your ink cartridges according to your printer model and enjoy the best possible reproduction results.
