Buying a printing solution is not an easy decision. Before choosing a specific option, it is essential that you take into account its technical characteristics and, of course, the use you are going to give it, in order to optimize the investment.

If you are thinking of incorporating a photo printing service into your business then a dye-sublimation photo printer will be your best work tool. We explain the reasons for choosing it.

Sublimation is a technique that offers high quality images, in which a wide range of colours are reproduced with a unique gradation of tones. All these elements enable you to be able to offer your customers professional photo printing of unmatched quality, by having the best dye-sublimation printers in your business.

Do you need to find a photo printing solution? You should take into account 5 elements to choose the best photo printer, which will help you decide which one is the most suitable for you.

  • 4. User interface. Choosing a dye-sublimation printer with a simple and intuitive user interface allows you to work easily, with minimal prior training.

  • 5. The quality of printing, with true colours on professional paper. In addition, dye-sublimation technology makes it possible to produce a professional product with long-lasting prints.
