I don’t know when the last time people here have actually used an inkjet printer but there is a ridiculous amount of unfounded hate for them every time there’s a discussion. I have a $90 epson from officeworks. I’ve had the same ink cartridges and printheads in it for well over a year and it works fine. It gets used maybe twice per year?
My last printer was the same, as was the one I used growing up in school. There might be some inkjet printers that aren’t great, but claiming that all inkjet printers are terrible and/or suffer from these problems is simply false. Sure, if you’ve left the printer in a state that has exposed the printheads for a long time (like 6+mths) you might have issues but most modern printers are fine in my experience.
It is my understanding for sublimation printing to work you need special inks that are generally not available as a toner - which means the entire point is invalid - craftpunk needs an inkjet.
