Don't settle for Higher Prices.

Roland saves more. Latex costs more.

Roland eco-solvent inkjet technology is more economical than the competition in every sense. The upfront price is better than a comparable latex device and the operating costs are lower. Take a closer look:

"Having technology like the Roland VersaCAMM allows us to be both innovative and price competitive. It fits right into our business model."

Craig Furst, AAA Flag & Banner

Don't settle for limited versatility.

Rolands empower. Latex limits.

Roland inkjets empower you to meet all your customers' needs, expand your product offering and grow your business like no latex device can.

Integrated printing and contour cutting technology gives you the power to produce decals, labels, vehicle wraps and more in one seamless workflow, with one device. Change job types quickly and easily, without the additional investment or wasted operator time that comes with a latex.

GREENGUARD Gold-Certified Eco-Sol MAX inks are fast drying, and include light black, metallic and white options for stunning effects that sell for an average of 30% more. Or you can spend 30% more on latex inks not available in light black, metallic or white, and do less.

"Our Rolands empower our shop to print, lam and wrap non-stop. The quality, versatility and low running costs let us say 'yes' to any job that comes our way."

James Naccarato, Iconography

Don't settle for stoppable.

High-productivity Roland. Time consuming latex.

When you build your business on an inkjet printer, efficiency, ease-of-use, and uptime are crucial. Roland quality and reliability plus fast drying Eco-Sol MAX inks allow you to go from RIP and print to laminate and install without delay. Pros like NASCAR race teams and nationwide wrap installers rely on their Rolands to produce thousands of jobs a year at the high pace their businesses demand.

With lower heat and energy requirements, and greater versatility, Rolands allow you to print profitable applications like heat-transfers and high-end displays. The result? Make more money, while spending less on electrical installations, energy consumption and temperature control.

Fast media loading and on-the-fly catridge replacement ensure maximum ease of operation

Produce high-quality graphics with high-speed and durability

Say "yes" to materials like heat transfer apparel and heat sensitive vinyls that latex printers create too much heat to print on

"We have a latex printer but we prefer not to use it much. It takes too long to warm up, only handles certain media, and is a hassle to set-up for each job. With our Roland, we load the media, push print and boom - it's printing."

Phillip Yu, Gamut Media

Don't settle for inferior machinery.

Built for pros. Not for consumers.

With a Roland inkjet, you get a greater build quality than latex devices that are made with parts similar to consumer products. Problems with latex machines include inferior loading mechanisms that make loading media frustratingly difficult and add unnecessary time onto every print job.

Designed for heavy day-to-day industrial operation, Rolands are famously reliable and long-lasting, and come with a 2-Year Trouble-Free Warranty to back it up. The best latex can do is tell you to spend a couple thousand more dollars on an extended warranty. Do the math.

"Of all the equipment in our shop, the machines I wouldn't want do without are the Rolands. Fortunately, they're built like tanks, so I don't have to."

James Camper, Meeks Group

Don't settle for average quality.

Superior Eco-Sol MAX. Dull latex.

Roland Eco-Sol MAX inks deliver fast drying and vibrant colors that maintain the matte, satin and glossy finishes of printed materials, providing print quality that is noticeably better than the always-flat colors produced by latex inks.

 

Eco-Sol MAX, paired with media profiles available on the Roland DGA Profile Center, yield a wider color gamut than latex, allowing you to produce a broader range of colors, including better spot color matching.

Roland's superior variable droplet technology prints in seven different ink droplet sizes, allowing for finer details, smoother gradations and a less "grainy" appearance when printing lighter colors.

"There are so many other companies out there, but their quality is not as crisp. Our VersaCAMMs give us the versatility and high quality output we need to keep our edge in the market."

Thomas Wink, Virtuoso Graphics

Don't settle for less green.

Eco conscious Roland. Power hungry latex.

There is a misconception told by competitors that Eco-Sol MAX inks are not as environmentally friendly as their latex counterparts. This is simply not true. In fact, both Roland Eco-Sol MAX and latex inks are Greenguard Gold certified for low VOC's and indoor safety. The biggest difference is that latex inks use significantly more heat and power to cure, result in higher room temperatures, and only offer the same eco-certification that Eco-Sol MAX offers. Latex inks also cost more per sqft. and scratch easier, making the case for Eco-Sol MAX clear.

"In motocross, some companies advertise that they don't use inkjet printers – I advertise that I use Roland because the color is outstanding and the inks are eco certified."

Jace Wade, Impulse Graphx

Don't settle for mediocre customer service.

Industry best service. Industry average service.

No other manufacturer matches the high-level of service and technical support that Roland provides every customer. When you buy a Roland, you get the backing of a company that's earned a worldwide reputation for customer care. Unlike the competition, Roland resellers are trained and certified to deliver the same level of quality support that Roland offers. So you can be assured, we've got your back.

"Roland gets my business because they've earned my trust. Their technical support people are really responsive whenever I have a question or production issue."

Jace Wade, Impulse Graphx

With a Roland, you have the power. Take it from these Roland owners:


"We laminate everything we produce, sometimes within an hour of printing. The Roland inks are durable and the colors are right on. Our graphics hold up at 200 miles per hour."

Nick Woodward
RCR Graphics Center

 

"Our Rolands have never required anything beyond standard upkeep. I needed machines that worked right out of the box. VersaWorks makes it really easy to go from design to print."

Kelly Taylor
Metropolitan West

 

"The quality of Roland's machines makes our products look better. The equipment has to be there, or the graphics won't look good. We wouldn't buy anything else."
