  • Sublimation Printers


    What do you guys think of sublimation (not sure I spelt it right)

    I have SONY Printer that uses sublimation method and prints on 4x6 paper. 25 sheets for 15 to 25 bucks. I am sure it is possible to research lower price.

    I like the prints... you can't see any little dots and the colors are pretty vibrant.

    DPP SV-55 is the model.

    Let me know what you think of such printing method.

    I also send some pictures for print if I want anything bigger than 5x6.

    I have a pair of Kodak 8650's that I use for events and also some of the work around the studio. I find that mine can get a bit contrasty at times, but overall I really like them. They are fairly quick, and the prints are much more like C-prints than any thing I have seen from an inkjet. Also the prints are not affected by water or handling. The one I have are glossy only and that is a bit of a draw back. Kodak has a new dyesub out called a 8500 (I think) that will print either glossy or matte and is about $1K or so and looks like it might work reallywell for someone who does not do tons of printing.

      Another current dye-sub that is similar to the Kodak 8650, is the Olympus P-400, but it prints much slower. You can print directly from a CF card or IF. The print quality is similar on both printers.
      The 8500 from Kodak may be the best choice.

        Dye-Sub vs. Ink-Jet Printers
        by akj
        Wondering if there are any thoughts out there on the differences between dye-sub and ink-jet printers. It seems that there it isn't a lot of talk about dye-subs on this forum and was wondering the reasons why.

        I recently saw a demo of a Kodak dye-sub printer and was quite impressed with...

        Producing Archival Images

        I am looking at producing a series of limited edition prints of some of my photographs for sale as limited edition prints. I am wondering what is the best way to go about this. My images are all digital. At the moment I am looking into either printing them myself or getting a lab to print them....

        gelatin silver prints v. vintage gelatin silver prints
        by Nauset3TT
        quick (hopefully) question- what is the difference between gelatin silver prints v. vintage gelatin silver prints and why would a photographer choose to use one over the other?

        Printer question
        by Anthony
        I have been printing my retouched photos on an Epson Stylus Photo 870 and have been very happy with the results. In fact people find it hard to believe that the prints are from an ink jet printer.

        Then I began reading about the Epson Stylus Photo 2000P - its archival printing ability...

        Many of you in here are professionals with this kind of thing.
        Here's the thing... you have file of some sort, a customer gave you a pic, you scanned it, worked it up in ps, now what? You need to print it, but how? What print services do you use and in what format do you save the file for...
