  1. Thanks so much for the information. I have a question, i apologize in advance if this was already mentioned. I’m already using the epson ecotank 2803 w included ink. How would I switch to sublimation ink without messing things up?

    1. Hi Mandi,
      You mean you already installed the Epson inkjet that came with the printer? You have to empty out the inktanks by using a blunt-tipped syringe then print full page bleeds to completely remove the ink from the lines. Then fill it with sublimation ink. You’ll have to print several full page bleeds again to make sure all the inkjet ink is out. I’m planning on making a video of this process soon so stay tuned.

  2. Once converted to sublimation printer can you use sublimation ink to print regular pictures and documents? Thank You

    1. Hi Jessica,
      Sublimation ink is dull when printed. It only becomes vibrant once it’s heated (heat press for sublimation). So if you print a regular picture of document, it will be dull and not vibrant at all. So no, you cannot use it as a regular printer anymore since it contains a different type of ink.

  3. I am new to sublimation. And I have read many blogs from different people, but this one is my favorite. I really loved that you explained the whys and why nots. Thank you so much!

    1. Glad you got some useful info from my explanations. Good luck with your new sublimation journey and have fun. Let me know if there’s anything I can help you with or even topics to cover in this website.

  4. I don’t have the same dialogue boxes on my MAC. Do you know of any other resources?

    1. Did you download the right driver for your Mac? How are you sending your images to the printer? What design program? Message us on Facebook so you can send me images of what your print screen option are.
