Setting up your very own printing shop in South Africa? You’ll want to have a look at our blog article on the printing equipment a new print shop needs. This Digizoo blog article discusses six types of Roland printers, and what you could use each of them for in a retail printing service environment:
Roland Sublimation Printers
The process of sublimation involves transferring an image or pattern onto sythetic fabrics such as polyester. Sublimation printers, like the Roland TexArt RT-640, are extensively used to apply graphics to clothing, outdoor banners, sportswear, home décor, and other fabrics.
Roland UV Printers
UV printers have revolutionised the corporate gifting and souvenir industries, allowing print shops to transfer graphics and patterns of any variety onto practically any 3D object. For example, the Roland UV LEJ-640 is able to print on flat surfaces up to half and inch think, and the Roland VersaUV LEF-12 can print on 3D objects up to 12 inches by 11 inches in dimension.
Roland Wide-Format Printers
Where Roland printers really shine is when printing items in a large format. Wide-format printers, like the Roland Soljet Pro 4 XF-640, can print widths of up to 1.6 metres and are extensively used when printing things like wallpaper, window signage, vehicle wrapping and large outdoor banners or signs.
Roland Desktop Printers
Looking to run a smaller operation from home? Where space is an issue, Roland’s range of desktop printers are able to deliver high quality printing from a smaller device. For example, the Roland BN-20 is a desktop printer that can print and cut graphics that can be applied to clothing, products, windows, vehicles and more!
Roland Printers & Cutters
Printing onto a substrate is only half of the printing job in many cases. One often needs to cut the printed material to specific shapes and sizes, depending on the design. This is where a Roland printer and cutter comes in! With a printer and cutter like the Roland TrueVIS SG-540, you’re able to both print and cut your designs using one single dual-purpose machine!
