Printwear & Promotion LIVE! is the premier event for professionals keen to explore new revenue streams in these markets and to experience the latest technology, with an eye on ways to improve productivity, cut costs and grow their business. The Roland stand (G60) will therefore provide a showcase of innovations to achieve all of these aims, along with indispensable expert advice.
The brand new Roland Texart RT-640M will be a star of the show. Released in late 2018, this ground-breaking dye-sublimation device enables a choice between direct-to-textile or transfer printing in one powerful machine – the first in its market to do so. This dual functionality offers maximum versatility, quality and ease of use for short run, on-demand production, with an unparalleled price to performance ratio.
Alongside the Texart RT-640M will be the Roland VersaSTUDIO BN-20 printer/cutter and Roland CAMM-1 GS-24 desktop vinyl cutter, both established and popular choices for businesses in the promotional clothing market, at an accessible price point for those new to the industry. The Roland TrueVIS SG-300 will also be on show at the NEC, demonstrating its powerful high-volume wide format printing and cutting functions to those looking for an economical, productive workhorse. Each of these systems is powered by Roland's advanced VersaWorks 6 RIP software.
Roland's Printwear & Promotion LIVE! booth will also include demonstrations of its leading personalisation solutions, perfect for businesses looking for accessible and creative ways to diversify. Among these will be the recently launched Roland DGSHAPE LD-80, the world's first laser foil decorator. Designed as a brilliantly fast, safe and easy-to-use alternative to traditional hot foil stamping, the LD-80 can apply metallic, gold, gloss or holographic details to gift boxes, leather tags and other small objects – perfect for customising sophisticated branded items with an elegant finishing touch. For even more versatility, delegates will be able to experience the amazing Roland VersaUV LEF-12i benchtop UV printer, able to print vibrant colours, crisp monochromes and even textures onto an astonishing array of materials, including textiles.
To support show visitors in making decisions about their investments or business direction, the Roland Academy will be heading to Birmingham for a special Print Clinic hosted by experts from all areas of the Roland team. These daily Q&A sessions are intended to solve problems, provide essential advice and to really motivate attendees to develop a business they love. The Roland team will also be joined by Alex Liggett, owner of The Vinyl Guys. Alex will be talking about how his TrueVIS SG-540 helped him grow his business at a stellar rate and he’ll also share his tips and advice for print service providers both old and new.
