Roland DGA Corp. will introduce several innovative new inkjet printing technologies and value-added services for sign and print professionals at the ISA International Sign Expo being held March 22-24, 2012, in Orlando, Fla., in booth #2072.
In response to popular demand, Roland is introducing the option of white ink for the VersaStudio BN-20 desktop printer/cutter and double white for the best-selling VersaCAMM VS series printer/cutters. Also being introduced are a first-ever rental program for certain Roland inkjet models and an online storefront capability designed exclusively for Roland owners.
“With Roland, customers know that they are not only purchasing reliable, state-of-the-art products, but they are investing in the future of their business,” said Andrew Oransky, director of marketing and product management for Roland DGA. “That is why we offer workshops and free webinars, as well as innovative financing options and even the ability to create their own custom online storefront – products and services designed to provide our customers with everything they need to be successful.”
On display in Roland’s booth is the company’s most extensive product line-up ever, including its best-selling metallic eco-solvent and UV inkjet printers and printer/cutters, vinyl cutters, ADA sign making kits and engraving machines. For ISA, Roland will offer special sales incentives, including a free Productivity Pack valued at more than $1,500 with the purchase of a VersaStudio BN-20 and a $2,500 online store credit with the purchase of a VersaCAMM VS-540 or VS-640, or VersaArt RS-640 printer.
