Sawgrass SG500 A4 Dye Sublimation Printer
Be part of the 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.

It has always been a pleasure to deal with GJS, the staff are wonderfully knowledgeable and always super helpful. There has been several occasions in which we have known what we wanted, but been unsure about how to get it. And GJS has stepped up, pointed us in the right direction and promptly supplied what was required. Good on ya GJS !
Being new to the printing game and being self taught I have made a lot of mistakes however, I have rung GJS several times with some pretty lame brain questions and even though GJS have no obligation to help me they have advised me and helped me out or pointed me in the right direction with no questions asked. These guys know what they are talking about.
