A printer that applies dye from a dry ribbon onto specially treated paper. Heat from a print head vaporizes the dye, which is transferred onto the paper to produce a true photo-quality print.
The printing system that transfers colors from RGB, CMY, or CMYK computer files onto ribbons containing dyes that are heated and fused onto paper. Dye sublimation printers are continuous tone printers capable of producing photographic quality images.
A printer that produces highly detailed, photographic print-like images by using continuous tones rather than the dot patterns of an inkjet printer.
