Silhouette Studio for Sublimation: Printer Page Set up for the SG1000 (on PC)

Silhouette Studio is an excellent design program to use with your sublimation printer. If you’re using the Sawgrass SG1000, then you can print on sublimation paper that is 11 by 17 inches.

This Silhouette Studio tutorial will show you how to setup that printer page size in Silhouette Studio so you can print to the Sawgrass SG1000 from Silhouette Studio.
First, you’ll need to have installed the Sawgrass Print Manager onto your PC. This only needs to be done one time. 

How to Select a Printer in Silhouette Studio

Open Silhouette Studio and from the File Menu select Print.  This is where we are going to pick our printer before we do anything else.

The Print Preview window should appear, and it won’t have anything on the page, but click Print anyway.

Then, select the Sawgrass Print Manager and click Print.

The Sawgrass Print Manager window should now open. You’ll see preview of a blank piece of paper. 

If you have multiple SG printers, then make sure you have selected the right one. Then click Cancel.

The window will close and you'll be back in the Silhouette Studio software and your printer will be set. 

How to Set Up the Silhouette Studio Page Size to Print on Sawgrass SG1000

Open the Page Setup panel and make the following selections:
  • Select Show Print Border
  • Cutting Mat Size; None
  • Media Size: Printer

Since you set the printer as your Sawgrass SG1000, 11x17 should be the Media Size.

If it's not go back into File > Print > Page Setup and select 11x17" as your paper size.

How to Print to a Sublimation Printer from Silhouette Studio on a PC

Open up your designs you want to use and arrange them as you’d like them to print. Just be sure to remember there is 5 mm margin for the SG1000 so don’t arrange the designs too close to the edge.

When you're ready click the Printer icon along the top toolbar in Silhouette Studio and  send to Print through the Sawgrass Print Manager.

The Sawgrass Print Manager gives the ability to mirror the design, but you may want to get in the habit of mirroring the design in Silhouette Studio first, then sending to print. Whatever way you choose, make sure the preview shows that the design is mirrored.

These gnomes and monograms were pressed on the white side of these reverse sequin stockings at 400 degrees F for 60 seconds.

  1. Hi! What are your print settings for the SG1000? I just recently got the sg1000 and want the best out out it. Also after every print I send to the printer, it makes me “form feed” the paper through confirming the size in the printer, I don’t believe it’s normal but can’t figure out how to stop it
