If you take the area you can print with that liter and calculate what the cartridges would cost to print the same area on a desktop model, you'll find you'd be paying more a liter for the same ink. If you're talking about a large-enough job, the cost of the desktop ink cartridges might actually pay for a wide-format sublimation printer.
You have to be forward thinking and weigh the initial capital investment, including equipment, materials, setup and training; operating costs; and production needs against your company's goals. With respect to the printer itself, you are looking at an upfront cost .
You'll also need a wide-format heat press. The number of presses in the range between 16 inches by 20 inches and a 44-inch width is limited, but it is likely to grow concomitantly with the interest in wide-format printing. However, mid-level wide-format heat presses currently are significantly more expensive than standard sizes.
Also, because of the size of a wide-format manual heat press, it's preferable to get one that's air operated. If you decide to go to a 64-inch printer, it will increase your production speed, and you'll still be able to use the wide-format heat press and 44-inch sublimation paper; but you'll pay about twice as much for the printer. In general, if you give yourself a budget , you should be in good shape and be able to recoup the investment quickly.
