I am looking for generic ink jet sublimation inks for my HP 2000c as I would like to do ceramic mugs, in the old days these where the only way to transfer an image to a T-shirt or fabric item but then everyone got into the t-shirt paper business.

Does anyone besides alps or epson have such a thing?

PS QLT.com sells ink jet sublimation mugs.

Cheers

All the inks they offer appear to be Epson only as usual

Did I miss something?

Sorry – my bad. I did a little reading on inkjet sublimation. It is a system that changes properties when heat is applied so it can merge with certain surfaces. Epson is the only printer that doesn’t heat the ink in the printing process. It uses piezoelectric force to spray the ink where all the others use the original concept from the Canon bubble jet that boils the ink at very high temps to cause it to spray out on the paper. Since you can’t boil sublimation ink it can be used only in Epson inkjet printers.
