Dye Sub!

One of the many attempts to get neutral grayscale digital images was the purchase of a HI Photo Printer 640PS DyeSub printer. It turned out that the doc's didn't like the color bias it seemed to have. Add to that the long print times and a horrible driver and it was quickly shelved, but not before a ton of paper and dye sub printing cartridges (both B&W and color) were bought. So whenever i've got some prints to make, i use that one. The prints are decent (the greens seem to come out a little overblown from time to time) and it's cool to just be able to copy the images i want to a CF card and plug it into the machine and hit 'print all'.

The cartridge ran out and i unrolled the whole thing just so you guys could see it. I think one cartridge will print about 50 sheets or so.


  • Is each color a negative of what was printed? Could it be used to print photo paper?

  • yeah, there is a ghost images on each color of the images. the intensity of that image depends on the amount of color needs to create the color on the paper, i assume. it uses heat to transfer the color to the paper. it's kinda tedious to watch it print cause it spits out (mostly) after each pass under each color...so you see a yellow print, a red print, and then finally a complete print.

    the ghost print isn't very useful, however. it's really subtle.

  • Maybe if you got three lights and lenses, you could project a color image of what was printed?

  • those are probably covered in chemicals - i bet they would emit some chemical vapors that could be dangerous - although they look cool - please don't bring them home
    all i need is for adolfo to find them and stick them in his mouth
