If you are an events photographer, then you need to be able to produce prints fast – and as you are selling these they need to be high quality. This makes usual inkjet or giclee photo printers unsuitable. If you work as a pro shooting shows, visitor attractions, sports events, or parties then you need a dye sublimation printer. 

Dye sub printers make each print in seconds with no moving inkjet heads, they use roll paper and colour cassettes. Each print uses a precisely cut length of paper - with individual cyan, magenta, yellow and gloss layers creating the photo.
