    I'm looking to get a sub dye photo printer for my Dad. I keep seeing that some printers are sub dye and others say thermal dye. Is there a difference between the two?? If so, which one is better?

    I know what it is... Most of the descriptions say sub dye, so that's what I said...

    Anyone have an answer to my question?

    Thanks for the reply... I have a Sony sub dye printer and love it.

    I'm looking for one for my Dad and I keep seeing thermal dye as the print type. So... thermal dye is different AND better than sub dye?
