We are about to start our dye sublimation printing business.
We would be first printing on to paper using dye sublimation inks and then transferring it on to polyester based fabric using a heat press.
Our heat press is only 42 inches so a similar width printer shall suffice for us.
We can easily buy the new Epson 9800 printer in India.
Does anyone know if the 9800 can be used as a production printer for Dye Sublimation.
We shall also need to buy:
1. RIP ( any source to get a second hand ONYX or SoftRIP)
2. Bulk ink system to attach with the printer ( systems are available for the 9600 printer what about the new 9800 printer??)
3. Bulk inks.
4. Paper.
Anyhelp ?
Thanking you and best regards.
