InkOwl Performance-D Sublimation Ink is designed specifically for use in Epson desktop printers. Use this ink in conjunction with our refillable cartridges to convert an ordinary Epson 4-color or 6-color printer into a dedicated sublimation printer very easily and affordably. For more details, see our guide: How to Convert an Epson Desktop Printer to Sublimation.
Although it is possible to obtain very good results without customized color management, the color gamut will be severely limited. To produce photographic-quality sublimated materials, color management is required. A custom ICC profile will need to be installed into Photoshop, Corel, or your RIP software.
ICC profiles can be used with all quality graphics packages including Adobe and Corel software. Download our profile installation guide for step-by-step instructions:
For 4-color printers, including EcoTank, Expression Home, Expression Premium, Stylus, WorkForce printers:

On specialty substrate materials, particularly clear or colored polyester fabrics, you may find that the color match is not adequate with our standard profiles. If this is the case, you will need a custom ICC profile. You can produce this profile yourself using a device such as ColorMunki or SpyderPRINT. Alternatively, with the purchase of a full set of InkOwl Performance-D Sublimation Ink, you can benefit from our complimentary profiling service. Feel free to contact us for more information or to get started with a custom profile.
