Description

Ideal for hobbyists and moonlighters, the SG500 printer is a perfect fit for any desktop setup. It can print on media up to 8.5˝ x 14˝ (22 x 36 cm) with an impressive resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi. This high resolution allows for intricate details in both photos and text, enabling you to apply custom designs to a wide range of popular items like mugs, coasters, phone cases, and awards.

Compared to its competitors, the SG500 boasts a print speed that is more than twice as fast, reducing wait times and allowing users to focus more on product creation. Additionally, the printer's automatic maintenance cycle, activated as long as the printer is powered on, eliminates concerns about ink drying in the lines or print heads for those who leave it on.

Apart from design enhancements like a single roll-bar, the SG500 stands out with its energy efficiency, improved resolution, and WiFi connectivity. All of this translates to superior product quality and user convenience, while maintaining a price point similar to the previous model.

CreativeStudio, a user-friendly tool, comes with built-in product templates and a vast library of designs. It seamlessly integrates with your Sawgrass printer, making the creative process hassle-free. Each Sawgrass printer purchase includes an individual CreativeStudio account, and an upgraded premium membership offers unlimited access to extra features and artwork. CreativeStudio receives regular updates, incorporating customizable artwork and product templates, enabling SG500 owners to adapt swiftly to evolving trends and upcoming occasions.

To ensure optimal color quality on sublimated items that can vary based on materials and papers used, Sawgrass Print Manager offers a solution. This software utility automatically adjusts ink output, reducing ink wastage and ensuring accurate and vibrant colors on finished products. Supporting hot folders, gang printing, and output to multiple printers, the Print Manager handles both CMYK and RGB files. It provides 124 "color recipes" for different combinations of product materials, inks, and papers, thus enhancing your printing experience.

Notably, Sawgrass Print Manager is not currently compatible with Apple's ARM processors, though the company is actively working to optimize their software for these processors to ensure full compatibility and performance. Unfortunately, a release date for this update is yet to be announced.

Regarding system compatibility, macOS 10.13 High Sierra reached its end of life on November 30, 2020. Consequently, Sawgrass is phasing out software support for computers running macOS 10.13 High Sierra and will cease technical assistance for this version in January 2021.

The flagship sublimation ink, SubliJet UHD Ink, by Sawgrass, offers richer and more vibrant colors on both hard and soft substrates, including heat transfer vinyl. The ink remains viable for up to two years from its manufacturing date, and it's crucial to avoid using expired ink to prevent color shifts, printer damage, and potential harm to print heads.

Moreover, the SG500 maintains backward compatibility with SG400 accessories, allowing seamless integration if you already possess a bypass tray for the SG400 printer.
