Roland delivers for Classic Print!

Roland delivers for Classic Print!

Since 1989, Classic Print has relied on Roland technology, for both its quality and the continued reliability of RolandCare warranty packages. Now as the company takes delivery of its 17th Roland DG Machine, Pete Colman, Managing Director of Classic Print, explained why Roland remains his first choice for new equipment.

He said: “We have used printers from other manufacturers, but have never found a machine that offers the same level of quality or which carries a warranty that is as comprehensive as those from RolandCare.

“Roland’s engineers will diagnose any problems immediately then complete the work, rather than making two or more visits – something we’ve experienced with other printer brands.

“Roland also advises us on the correct maintenance and housekeeping for all of our printers, so that we can maximise their lifespans. RolandCare really does care.”

Keen to offer advice to anyone in the graphics sector looking to invest in a new printer, Pete opined: “People often ask, ‘Do I need a warranty?’ To which my response is, you can’t afford not to have a one, but read the small print. What back-up do you get? What service package does the manufacturer offer? Are the engineers from a third-party company or are they experts in your particular machine? Who can you trust?

“When you’re looking at new printers, manufacturers will tell you the ROI for when you’re printing – but what is the cost when you’re not printing? You should weigh the cost of a warranty against the expense of having a machine that is idle due to malfunction and the dire consequences that can have on the overall profitability of your business!”

With three decades of printing experience under his belt, ‘Big’ Pete Colman is well known in the industry. Based in Nottinghamshire, Classic Print provides the broad gamut of signs and graphics, including vehicle wraps and health and safety signage, banners, flags and exhibition display materials, promotional items and apparel, and engraved products.

The latest Roland system to join Classic Print’s print room – bringing its current total of Roland machines up to four – is a Roland SOLJET PRO4 XF-640, Roland’s fastest wide-format eco-solvent printer upon its release in 2013. Generally used for the production of durable signs, banners, vehicle wraps, posters, window graphics and more, at speeds of up to 102sqm/hr, the SOLJET is an ideal workhorse that enables Classic Print to keep up with increased demand.

Pete continued: “This is our 17th Roland machine in 30 years and we know we can rely on both the speed of the SOLJET and on the RolandCare warranty – Roland really delivers on what it promises!”
