Sawgrass (SGIA member since 1998), a leader in the dye sublimation and digital ink industry, has generously donated a Virtuoso 25-inch 8-Color HD Product Decorating System dye sublimation printer to be used in the state-of-the-art laboratory at SGIA Headquarters.

 

“When we heard that SGIA was hosting an event focused on wide-format graphics for sublimation, we wanted to play an active role in making that happen,” said Dimple Patel, Vice President of Product Development at Sawgrass. “Our team will be there to help new sublimators learn about how they can create banners, soft signage and other interior applications with the Virtuoso 25-inch 8-Color HD Product Decorating System. We want to give them a hands-on experience that will get them excited about the possibilities for their businesses and help them feel confident working with sublimation technology moving forward.”

The new printer will be used in the upcoming Operation Sublimation, Mission Wide-Format Graphics Workshop (May 2–4, 2017). Thanks to Sawgrass, workshop participants will get experience with some of the latest technology available on the market, and they will be able to practice their new skills before ever stepping outside of the classroom.

 

“I’m excited that attendees of our workshops will continue to have access to cutting-edge equipment, technologies and expertise because of the connections we have with our manufacturer members,” said Ray Weiss, Digital Imaging Specialist, SGIA. “This new Virtuoso 25-inch 8-Color HD printer is just another example and a great addition to our educational program.”

 

SGIA would like to extend sincere thanks to Sawgrass for their generous donation. Contributions like these not only help the Association, but also drive the education of the industry.
