What's the Difference Between Inkjet & Dye Sublimation Printers

The difference between the ink-jet printer and the dye sublimation printer is not only the quality of the photo prints but also the process used to create the photo. An ink-jet printer uses a printer cartridge that creates an image that is 300 x 300 dpi (dots per inch.) Most printer cartridge brands do not create a resolution that is true photo quality. Most customers also complain that the printer cartridge does not contain enough ink to print more than 20 or 25 photos before needing replacement.

The dye sublimation printers use a ribbon that can print at 5760 x 1440 dpi, and can print 16.77 million different colors. It can also print 256 colors on one dot with a square resolution. That means the color is the same on both sides. The ink-jet does not have this capability.

Some ink-jet printer manufacturers claim that their printer cartridges print photos that will last for centuries. However, customers have complained that the photos fade after only a few years, and if the photo gets wet–the colors run. It seems that almost all printer cartridge brands have this problem. In factory tests, the dye sublimation printers create an image that does not fade, and the colors do not run when wet. If a wet coffee cup is placed on the photos, it will not leave a ring.
