Refilling Cartridges for Sublimation Printers

Consider what goes into refilling cartridges before trying to do it yourself.

There is a pervasive misconception that a refillable ink cartridge means saving money in sublimation. People don’t realize just what goes into filling a cartridge properly to minimize air and contaminants. Wide-format decorators use professional filling equipment to refill their cartridges to achieve this.

For the smaller format decorator, it makes more financial sense to purchase new cartridges, as they deliver a high yield of ink that is of the highest quality. They don’t have to worry about breaking print heads or adding production time by refilling cartridges that can potentially harm their equipment. It’s one and done.
