Supplies Needed for Sublimation Printer Set-up:  Epson EcoTank ET-2760 Wireless Color All-in-One Cartridge-Free Supertank Printer  Sublimation Paper  Hiipoo Sublimation Ink for EcoTank

Step 1: Fill Ink Tanks


Begin by opening up the Eco-tank printer and discarding the ink that is included with the printer. The printer needs special ink for sublimation.


And Hiipoo Sublimation Ink for EcoTank  is by far the best and easiest to use!

The ink bottles are made to fit right into the ink ports, so you don't need to use a syringe to fill the tanks. I didn't get any ink on my fingers, but maybe wear gloves to be safe. 


Open the sublimation ink bottle and turn it over and click it into the corresponding tank. Then gently squeeze the bottle to fill up the tank.

Repeat the ink filling process for each of the tank colors. The blank tank holds more ink than the colors. This process goes pretty quickly...but don't squeeze the bottles hard, let them drip out to fill up with gently squeeze here and there.

The initialization process really does take about 10 minutes...so stay close, but maybe fold some laundry or load the dishwasher...and wait patiently.

Once it has initialized, it will print a certificate...? So put in a regular piece of paper and let it print it out as a test print. 


Now we are ready to hook up the wifi and print our own images, photographs, artwork, etc.

What are the Best Blanks for Cricut Crafts? Having a Cricut Machine is awesome! There are so many things you can make, create and customize...but you kind of need other things to do that. Blanks. Things like t-shirts, mugs, totes, acrylic, paper, etc...everyone wants the best blanks, usually in bulk, for their crafting.  I work with Cricut, so naturally I love them. I loved them before I started working with them and sought them out to work together. Cricut is sponsoring this post, all opinions and ideas are mine. Happy holidays!
