Sublimation Offers the Recipe for Success

Seeking innovative methods to invigorate your business and increase revenue is a top concern for many business owners. Fortunately, the resurgence of food trucks presents a promising opportunity that could prove lucrative for print service providers open to exploring sublimation printing. Delving deeper into this trend could unveil a potential avenue for increased profitability beyond vehicle wraps. These mobile eateries provide their owners a platform to introduce distinctive culinary concepts to a broader audience, traveling around towns and sharing their culinary delights with the foodie generation. These endeavors demand signage and printed promotional materials, a niche where your expertise can seamlessly come into play.

While food trucks can eliminate the great expense of a physical location that requires furniture and décor, maintaining the connection with local customers, while on the move and offering personalized service, can still be challenging. You can help by providing the resources to help them create unique promotional merchandise and everyday essentials for their business, enabling them to stand out.

Built to serve the unique needs of businesses, Epson dye sublimation printers are engineered to offer easy and reliable operation and exceptional quality to help your business grow and expand your product line. From signage to aprons, sublimation can add the spice your business needs to cater to food truck owners so they can stay focused on creating culinary works of art.

Below are some key ingredients to help broaden your range of products and provide personalized sublimation goods tailored for food truck entrepreneurs aiming to differentiate themselves in the market:

Curb Appeal

From vibrant branding to creative designs, the exterior sets the stage for what’s inside. Creating catchy visuals not only attracts attention but also creates a lasting impression that keeps their foodie customers coming back for more. Create attractive and colorful signage on aluminum panels, acrylic, or glass that can be seen from a distance.


Food truck owners have to stay fresh and dynamic with their menus. Help them to introduce new dishes, fusion flavors, or unique twists on classics with vibrant menu designs. Leverage your sublimation printer to craft personalized menus that can be easily updated, ensuring a steady revenue stream throughout different seasons.

Stay Connected

Beyond the food, it’s the personal touch that counts. Help them engage with their customers. Sublimation breathes life into their concepts with a vibrant spectrum. Your expertise can aid in amplifying their reach through vivid referral or rewards cards that feature their social media handles, utilizing materials such as aluminum, acrylic, or hardboard, including items like keychains.

Adapt to Change

Markets evolve, trends change, and customer tastes shift. Review their signage needs and promotional materials often. When they need an update, simply redesign and print new materials quickly. The Epson SureColor® F570PE provides many features to streamline your workflow, including specialized transfer paper for both rigid and soft media, a 50-sheet auto-feed tray, and built-in cutter to get their new materials produced quickly.

LexJet offers various Epson sublimation printers to fit your business as it grows. Take a look at what Epson offers here.

Remember, in the world of food trucks, it’s not just about serving food; it’s about creating an experience that leaves a lasting memory.

Here are some suggested sublimation products that you can produce and tailor to perfectly suit your distinct food truck clientele with the Epson SureColor® F570PE:

Extend the Life of Your Investment

When investing in innovative printing solutions and high-quality materials that can help your business reach new levels, protecting that investment through the addition of lamination is a strategic move that ensures the longevity and quality of your printed creations. Lamination prevents the printed surfaces from becoming worn, faded, or smudged, maintaining the vibrancy and integrity of your designs. With lamination, you not only enhance the durability of your prints but also uphold a professional standard in your final products, leaving a lasting impression on your clients, customers, or audience.

Investing in the Mimaki UCJV300-160 printer, General Formulations RoughMark™ 285 film with 831 AutoMark™ Cast Gloss Clear Laminate, and Mimaki LA-160W laminator results in an unrivaled and seamless workflow solution. The UCJV300-160 printer boasts precision and versatility, rendering vibrant and detailed prints with ease. Paired with General Formulations vinyl film and laminate, creativity knows no bounds- producing stunning, durable graphics for various applications on rough surfaces. The final touch is brought by the Mimaki LA-160W laminator, ensuring impeccable finishes with enhanced protection. Together, this trifecta harmonizes innovation, quality, and efficiency.

Mimaki Paves the Way in UV-LED Printing

Mimaki’s revolutionary technologies have enabled those in the printing industry to enjoy improved print quality, speed, and versatility. The UCJV300-160 offers unparalleled flexibility and benefits to businesses of all types. It offers in-line cutting capabilities and features multi-layer printing for double-facing images.

The UCJV300-160 64” printer delivers an amazing array of applications that are instantly dry, making it possible to laminate and/or cut immediately after printing for the highest efficiency in workflow. Its unique multi-layer printing produces innovative graphics for backlit applications as well as signs, posters, banners, labels, decals, and more. Some additional features include:

  • Highest media versatility with unparalleled scratch resistance
  • Three-, Four- and Five-layer printing for creative day/night displays and two-sided printing

  • Eco-friendly with low VOC, UL GREENGUARD Gold certified UV-LED
  • Peace of mind with available 3MTM MCSTM and ICS warranties
  • Endless design possibilities with white ink

Transform Spaces with General Formulations

For displays that require some extra heavy-duty grit, General Formulations 285 RoughMark™ is an opaque polymeric vinyl film coated with a clear high-tack removable (HTR) acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive for textured or rough surfaces like brick, concrete, cinder block, metal, wood, and others. It’s a heavy-duty option offering clean removability. This film pairs well with General Formulations 831 AutoMark™ Cast Gloss Clear Laminate adding a high-gloss lamination film to help protect your quality prints when long-term protection is required.

Increase Print Quality and Efficiency

The Mimaki LA-160W laminator is a game changer for printing professionals looking to protect their printed works of art from prolonged contact with elevated levels of abrasion, moisture, contaminants, or chemicals that may diminish their longevity. This laminator is equipped with a warming function available to heat up to a maximum of 60 degrees Celsius/140 degrees Fahrenheit to help reduce silvering caused by the unevenness of a print surface as a result of tiny air bubbles that are caught between the print and the overlaminate film. This undesirable effect is most often noticeable around the dark areas of a print. Some of the best features of this particular model are its user-friendliness and safety design. Other important benefits include:

  • Fast throughput speeds and easy to use
  • Easy access to pressure handle and foot pedal
  • Take-up reel makes it easy for one person to operate the entire process
  • Safety functions like an emergency stop and a protection function by laser
