Epson F170 Unboxing! The Sublimation Printer That Should Make You Think Twice About Converting

If you've been considering an Epson sublimation printer - do not pass on the Epson F170.

I discourage converting Epson printers for sublimation and the fact the F170 sublimation printer is available (but for some reason relatively unknown) is just one reason why. This is a purpose built sublimation printer.  That means the sublimation ink that comes with it is perfectly suited for the print head and you won't void your warranty by using it the way it's intended (like you would by converting a printer). 

The F170 also comes with Epson print manager with built in sublimation color profiles that work with a PC and MAC. You can even access the print manager directly from Silhouette Studio so you can print from your favorite design software. 

The price of $449 makes the F170 one of the lowest priced desktop sublimation printers.  It comes with plenty of ink and when it's time to refill, the ink is priced about 19 cents per ML (compared to more than $2 per ML for the Sawgrass ink).
