Sawgrass Launches New SubliJet-HD Fluorescent Inks for the Virtuoso 25” 8-Colour HD Product Decorating System

SHEFFIELD, England — June 24, 2016 — Product decorators can now add exciting fluorescent colors to graphics with Sawgrass’ new SubliJet-HD Fluorescent (FL) inks for the Virtuoso 25″ (630 mm) 8-color Product Decorating System featuring the VJ 628 printer.

This new eight-color ink set adds fluorescent yellow and pink cartridges to the proven SubliJet-HD C, M, Y, KXF, Lc and Lm configuration, giving sublimators a true multi-purpose solution for a much wider range of applications than possible with traditional CMYK inks.

“This newest ink set for the Virtuoso 25″ 8-Colour Product Decorating System is for all sublimation decorators who wish to add the excitement and visibility of fluorescent colours to their capabilities,” said Patrick McGinnis, Sawgrass’ director of Product Marketing. “Finally, those who print college and professional sports products, corporate logos, promotional and safety products, high-visibility signage and other products can add both fluorescent accents and full-fluorescent prints to their design capabilities.”

SubliJet-HD FL provides a preconfigured colour palette of 16 fluorescent colours that can be loaded directly into Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or CorelDRAW graphics software for easy use. New colours can also be created, applied and saved to the palette for quick spot colour matching and frequently printed jobs.

In addition to striking, true fluorescent images, SubliJet-HD FL delivers superior quality output for traditional prints. VJ 628’s eight-colour capabilities with Lc and Lm components provide smoother gradients and shading for high-resolution images, when compared to traditional CMYK output. With the addition of SubliJet-HD Black XF to the set, this new configuration also provides extended image stability and longevity.

SubliJet-HD FL currently manages colour using Wasatch Soft RIP. Additional RIP integrations are currently in development.
