Roland’s World Cup footie fun a great success
Roland DG flew the flag for England at its Creative Centre in Clevedon in June, with a day of World Cup-themed footie fun, some incredibly innovative printing and the launch of a special offer.
New and existing Roland customers attended the all-day event near Bristol, which featured an exciting table football competition with the winners taking home official footballs and England shirts. Print professionals were also encouraged to become soccer stars by printing their own pocket-sized toy figurine in their favourite team’s colours on the VersaUV S-Series printer.
The S-Series of UV printers was also put through its paces with a ‘What Can You Print?’ challenge, where its versatility and 200mm of vertical space was put to the test with objects supplied by visitors. The new system is available in flatbed and belt configurations and is already being used to create everything from packaging prototypes to printed flight cases.
Elsewhere, two Roland users, Alex Liggett from The Vinyl Guys and Paul Butler from Fatree5 were on hand to share tips and tricks for running a successful print business and to host fabric decoration demonstrations on the Roland Texart RT-640 dye-sublimation printer.
With plenty to inspire visitors to get printing, Academy and Creative Centre Manager Joe Wigzell hosted a learn with Joe clinic, where he fielded a huge variety of questions.
The open day also saw the launch of a special offer which rewarded anyone who ordered a Roland large-format vinyl cutter, a CAMM-1 GR-540 or GR-640, with a free mini fridge, ready-stocked with beer!
Commenting on the event, Roland DG’s Rob Goleniwoski said: “The day was a great success, with many attendees reporting that as well as having the opportunity to see the latest printers in action, the highlight was the inspiration that came from discussing applications with the Roland DG team and, as this was a key part of what we set out to achieve, we’re delighted to say the mission was accomplished.”
