Sawgrass SG500 A4 Dye Sublimation Printer

Be part of the Australian digital decoration revolution with the Sawgrass SG500 A4 dye sublimation printer. The SG500 is the perfect entry point for hobbyists or those starting their own home business and fits comfortably on a desktop and allows you to apply custom artwork to a wide variety of popular, high-margin items, from mugs and coasters to phone cases and awards.

The SG500 has the compact footprint and rugged reliability of its predecessor, the SG400, but has been updated from the inside out.

In addition to design improvements such as a single roll-bar, the SG500 is more energy-efficient, prints with higher resolution, and offers WiFi connectivity. This means you’ll enjoy higher quality products and greater ease of use, at a price comparable to the previous model.

The SG500 is backwards-compatible with SG400 accessories, so if you already own a bypass tray for the SG400, you will be able to continue using it. This allows you to print on media up to 1295mm long.

Like all Sawgrass printers, the SG500 performs its own automatic maintenance cycle for trouble-free printing.

Sawgrass Print Manager

Because different substrate materials and transfer papers affect the way colours appear on sublimated items, it’s important to adjust the ink output to ensure optimal quality.

Sawgrass Print Manager is a software utility that automatically makes those adjustments for you. Print Manager works in the background, managing the flow of colour information from your digital artwork to your Sawgrass printer.

This reduces wasted ink (saving you money), and ensures the colours on your finished products are as accurate and vibrant as possible.

Complimentary Licence of CreativeStudio

CreativeStudio is Sawgrass’ innovative suite of software that help creative entrepreneurs quickly and easily produce great-looking designs from any Internet-connected computer, tablet or smartphone.

To create personalised designs that your customers want to buy, you could spend a lot of money on third-party design software and royalty-free artwork. Or, you could use CreativeStudio, the only online design tool built specifically for sublimation.

With built-in product templates, thousands of ready-to-use designs, and seamless integration with your Sawgrass printer, CreativeStudio takes the frustration out of creation.

An individual account is included with every Sawgrass printer purchase, and premium membership is available for unlimited access to additional features and artwork.

Product Reviews


I Received my printer wthin 24 hours of order and was helped with installation within 1 hour of my question.



From the moment I walked in your business in early June I received great customer service by Ian and by the boys in the warehouse. Being new to this business I had to make a number of phone calls to your Sydney office and to the 'Remote' help desk (Igor helped me a few times), every single time it was a pleasure to deal with your Team members. All round ... a massive 10/10. Thanks very much and keep it up ;)


I love that I can order a printer the day before Easter and have it on my doorstep the day after, you guys process your orders and get them out the door so fast and that's always appreciated. Any issues are always dealt with promptly. Your team are always friendly, helpful and professional and you reply to messages asap. Your products are great quality and your website is so user friendly and quick to navigate. Thanks again for the great service.


The order process online is excellent and easy to use and delivery is very swift and the range of products is fantastic. Pricing off some product is slightly higher than other suppliers but the service is second to none, I will always recommend GJS on this point alone, your may pay a little more but in my opinion service is what counts.


I would like to say I am very happy with recent purchases of Sawgrass SG500 and the customer service has been amazing. I was impressed to receive a call the other day to follow up on my recent purchase and to be asked if I could be assisted with anything to do with my Sawgrass SG500 . I have since ordered a new mug press and looking forward to receiving this as it will save time with messing around with current one. I would highly recommend GJS.
