Printing at home is a quick and convenient way to get prints from your digital camera.

If you print at home, there is no waiting days for the post to arrive, or trips into town just to print a few good photos.

Printing your photos at home is now quick and easy, and has rekindled many people's interest in photography as the results are instant and of very high quality.

Inkjet or Dye Sublimation?
Traditionally people have used their Inkjet Printer to print photos, but inkjet printers have some major drawbacks. Inkjet photos can be messy, expensive and not as durable as other forms of printing. Also, most Inkjet printers require connection to a computer and a certain amount of computer experience to use them.

Dye Sublimation printers however, use a totally different technology and can print better quality photos, which are more durable, cheaper and often printed much more quickly than on an Inkjet Photo Printer. Dye Sublimation printers have been around for over 20 years, but it has only been over the last few years that their prices have become more affordable.

Dye Sublimation printers are used by Professional Photographers to print very high quality images. If it's good enough for a professional, then it's sure to produce superb results in your own home.

With a Dye Sublimation printer you can produce the perfect passport or ID photo quickly for yourself, family and friends, while saving time and money in one go!

Dye Sublimation better than Inkjet?
Inkjet Printers do have their good points; they are superb all round printers and unlike Dye Sublimation Photo Printers, can be used for all types of printing. When it comes to photo printing however, they are not as good as Dye Sublimation Printers, which produce high quality prints that cannot be surpassed, even if you were to purchase a high end Inkjet Printer.

Here are some of the main advantages of Dye Sublimation Printers vs Inkjet Photo Printers:

  • Better Quality Photos - Quite simply Dye Sublimation Printers can print a vast array of colours, which in turn creates a superb photo. Inkjet Printers are limited in how many shades of a colour that they can print and have to dither the photos to produce reasonable results.

  • Fixed Cost - Unlike Inkjet Printers that require separate ink cartridges, special papers etc., Dye Sublimation consumables come in a single pack with all the items you need, incuding the paper. Unlike Inkjet printers they will always print a specified number of prints regardless of the colour coverage. This ensures that you always know exactly how much each print is costing; something that is very difficult to calculate with an Inkjet Printer.

  • Speed - A 6"x4" photo printed in as little as one minute! Inkjet printers can take up to TEN TIMES longer to print the same size image. (This often being at a lower effective resolution also).

  • Durability - Photos printed on a Dye Sublimation Photo Printer are coated with a UV resistant layer that ensures image stability and further ensuring that images are resistant to water, coffee spillages and even childrens sticky fingers!

  • Hassle Free - Dye Sub photo printers do not use any ink, so there is no chance of coming into contact with "messy inky" cartridges and no problems with blocked print heads etc. degrading the print quality.

  • No need for a PC - The majority of home Dye Sublimation Printers work Stand-Alone, so don't even need a PC to operate and as a result can be used by the whole family. You can print straight from your camera memory card and get superb quality prints in just over a minute!
