Roland kicks off World Cup with creative fun and games

Roland kicks off World Cup with creative fun and games

As sports fans prepare for the world’s ultimate football event, Roland DG is planning to fly the flag for England at its Creative Centre in Clevedon, where it is inviting sign and print companies to join the Roland team on June 26th for a day of World Cup-themed footie fun and some incredibly innovative printing.

Things will kick off in the Creative Centre from 10.00am, where visitors will be able to see Roland’s league-topping print solutions in action. There’ll also be plenty of giveaways on offer, with official

footballs and England shirts up for grabs. In addition, visitors will also have the chance to customise their new shirts using the Roland TrueVIS wide format printers, while also seeking answers to any questions they have about the TrueVIS range and wide format printing in general, with demonstrations and Q&A sessions taking place throughout the day.

Aside from all the footie fun, the VersaUV S-Series printer is expected to be the star of the show. The new S-Series is available in flatbed and belt configurations and is already being used to create everything from packaging prototypes to printed flight cases. With 200mm of vertical space, there’s practically no limit to the range of objects that can be customised.

The team at Roland DG will be inviting visitors to a ‘What Can You Print?’ challenge to demonstrate the versatility of the solution. Even if they don’t bring their own test objects, attendees can still become soccer stars by printing their own pocket-sized toy figurine in their favourite team’s colours.

In the true competitive spirit of the World Cup, visitors will also have the opportunity to compete in a table football competition, with the winner walking away with an official England shirt and the runner-up winning an official World Cup football.

There will be many more freebies on offer: for example, anyone who orders a Roland CAMM-1 GR-540 or Roland GR-640 will receive a free mini fridge, ready-stocked with beer. However, this offer is only live while England remains in the World Cup, so fingers crossed for no penalty shoot-outs!

Running until 8.00pm, the event will also include lunchtime refreshments and the day’s matches streamed live on the Creative Centre’s screens.

With plenty to inspire visitors, Academy and Creative Centre Manager Joe Wigzell will be running a ‘Learn with Joe’ clinic, so everyone should come prepared with questions and queries for Roland DG’s resident expert to answer.

Elsewhere, Alex Liggett from The Vinyl Guys will be on hand to share his tips and tricks for running a successful print business, while Paul Butler from Fatree5 will be running fabric decoration demonstrations on the Roland Texart RT-640 dye-sublimation printer. As Roland users themselves, Alex and Paul know these applications inside out and will be sharing their expertise and knowledge.

 Roland DG UK’s World Cup event will take place on Tuesday June 26th, 2018 at the Creative Centre in Clevedon between 10.00am and 8.00pm.
