VersaArt RE-640 64" Eco-Solvent Inkjet Printer

Title
Choosing a Printer for Dye Sublimation
Symptom
Wanting to install dye sublimation inks
Cause
Where do I begin?
Solution
​Roland's print-only printers can be used for dye sublimation.  The important thing is that these printers cannot be inked up with eco-solvent inks at all.  Once it is inked up with eco-solvent inks, you cannot switch to dye sublimation inks since these inks are mainly water based.  The printer must be inked up with dye sublimation first.
