Roland’s World Cup-themed print event goes down a treat

The VersaUV S-Series printer

New and existing customers were invited to Roland DG’s Creative Centre in Clevedon on Tuesday, June 26 for a day of World Cup-themed football fun, along with some innovative printing.

The all-day event featured an exciting table football competition with the winners taking home official footballs and England shirts. Print pros were also able to print their own pocket-sized toy figurine in their favourite team’s colours on the VersaUV S-Series printer.

The S-Series was also put through its paces with a ‘What Can You Print?’ challenge, where the UV printer’s 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, Alex Liggett from The Vinyl Guys was on hand to share his tips and tricks for running a successful print business, while Paul Butler from Fatree5 ran fabric decoration demonstrations on the Roland Texart RT-640 dye sublimation printer. 

Rob Goleniowski, head of sales, said: “The event was a great success, with all visitors saying they took something away from the day.

“As well as getting to see the latest printers in action, the highlight for many people was the inspiration that came from discussing applications with the Roland DG team. This was a key part of what we set out to achieve so we’re delighted to say the mission was accomplished.”
