  1. I recently bought an Epson ECOtank ET-15000 printer

    I set it up for the first time last night using

    myCartridge SUPCOLOR Sublimation Ink from amazon.

    Go to print my first project and I printed on A-SUB Sublimation Paper and the colors are SUPER dull looking. They are on regular printer paper as well.

    My printer settings are set to High quality so I’m not sure what else I can do to make the colors bright and look good, as they should.

    P.S- I am using Windows 10

    1. Hi Jordan,

      Great choice on the printer and glad you found one. That’s one of the harder printers to find at this time.

      The printed transfer is dull until it is activated by the heat from your heat press. Try pressing that printed sublimation transfer on a polyester fabric and the colors should be more vibrant.

      I’m not familiar with supcolor ink but some ink manufacturers provide an ICC profile for their ink. That ICC profile also plays a factor on the color your sublimation printer produces.

      What software are you using to print your designs?

      Check out my post on the Most Common Sublimation Problems. The dullness is addressed there amongst other issues you may encounter.

    Hello again,
    Did I see somewhere on your site a thing to print for the colors and their hex codes? (Or possibly it was another site as I’ve been to so many over the last few months.) I just got my ET 4800 set up tonight, but haven’t attempted any sublimation paper yet. Was wanting to be completely ready, but I’m now at a loss as to what to do. Thanks for your assistance!

    1. Hi Holly,
      Congrats on setting up your converted printer. I do not have a color chart published right now. It’s on my long “to do” list. Just look for a generic “RGB Color Chart” and print that out on your sub paper then press on a polyester fabric. See how close the colors are to the actual screen image. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
