Overview

Applications

The perfect printer for the hobbyist, micro-preneur, or moonlighter, the SG500 fits comfortably on a desktop, and prints on media up to 8.5˝ x 14˝ (22 x 36 cm). This 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 Wi-Fi 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 backward-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 51˝ long (1295 mm). Like all Sawgrass printers, the SG500 performs its own automatic maintenance cycle for trouble-free printing. For complete peace of mind, the SG500 is now backed by a 2-year warranty, as well as unlimited tech support for the life of the product.

  • Compact footprint: Desktop size printer perfectly sized for home and office use.
  • Wi-Fi connectivity: Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity option frees you from having to connect directly to your design station via USB cables.

The SG500 is an excellent choice for startup in dye sublimation. Sublimation is suitable for transfer decoration of apparel and hard surfaced items. Apparel must be white or pastel and 100% polyester.* Hard surface items such as mugs, plaques, mouse pads, sign blanks, awards, and many others can be decorated as long as the item has a polymer-coating. Popular applications for sublimation include: Polyester sportswear and custom fashion, mouse pads, cell phone covers, mugs, sports water bottles and other drinkware items, plaques, awards, bracelets, face masks, tiles, and indoor signage. *Sublimation printers can also be used to decorate blended or darker apparel when used with sublimation-capable heat transfer vinyls such as Logical Color SubliDark Print. A vinyl cutter may be required.
