SG500 Features & Resources
Developed with productivity and profitability in mind, the Sawgrass Virtuoso SG500 facilitates the best quality dye sublimation printing, with lowest per-image costs, making this the perfect choice for small garment and giftware creation and businesses.
The previous model, the SG400 was an upgrade on the Ricoh SG3110, merging its compact footprint and sturdy framework with better firmware and improved inks. The SG500 shares the same sturdy framework and footprint, with even more impressive upgrades, including better energy efficiency, higher resolution printing, single roll-bar, and WiFi Connectivity!
The SG500 is also slightly more affordable, which means with the SG500 you’re getting the ability to create higher quality products, even easier and most cost effective than with the Virtuoso SG400.
The SG500 is also compatible with the SG400 and the 3310 accessories, including the byass tray. So if you had invested in a bypass tray, you’ll still be able to use it with your new SG500, allowing you to print up to approx. 1.3m in length.
As with the other printers in the Virtuoso range, the SG500 carries out it’s own auto maintenance, ensuring minimal downtime and maximum productivity.
This brilliant little and inexpensive dye sublimation printer is also backed by a 2 year manufacturers warranty, as well as unlimited technical supports (from Sawgrass) for the life of the printer!

Why buy from us?
If you shop around, you’ll find the SG500 slightly cheaper – just bear in mind that some suppliers are selling this printer with the “install kit” also known as “starter inks” which offer less value for money. We’re selling the Virtuoso SG500 with the full capacity ink cartridges.
Also, we offer great customer service, including same day dispatch for next working day delivery (on orders placed by 2pm, although usually OK until around 3.30 pm).
But mainly – because we offer more in the kit, for the same price.
As well as the standard kit, for the standard RRP, we throw in a roll of our heat proof tape (which is very high quality tape, which doesn’t mark off, which we believe is among the best heat resistant tape on the market), a box of trupix classic A4 dye sublimation paper AND a box of Texprint R mug sized sheets, which are brilliant for mugs (no cutting, easier alignment) but also good for other smaller products.
