More than 30 members of the Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California (PIASC) attended Roland DGA Corporation’s lunch, networking event and seminar held on June 14 – a gathering that gave local commercial printing professionals an opportunity to learn more about the company and how wide-format inkjet printers can increase the success of their respective businesses.
The event, held at Roland DGA Corporation’s Irvine, CA headquarters, featured a presentation by Andrew Oransky, director of marketing & product management, outlining the many capabilities of the company’s advanced wide-format printers and printer-cutters. Oransky also provided insight on the various profit centers these state-of-the-art machines can create for commercial print businesses. The seminar featured guest speakers as well, including Rick Blomquist, general manager of Main Graphics, a full-service print communications firm in Irvine. Blomquist supplied PIASC members with real life examples of how wide-format inkjets have contributed to his company’s revenue.
Following the seminar, attendees were able to see some of Roland’s wide-format inkjet printer/cutters in action, including selected models from the company’s VersaCAMM VS and VersaUV product series. They were also given a guided tour of Roland DGA’s unique lobby gallery, where a wide variety of user projects on display colorfully illustrate a world of virtually unlimited creative possibilities.
Rusty Sena, PIASC member and owner of Venice, CA-based Echelon Creative LLC, was extremely impressed with the event and Roland’s product offerings. “It was a truly eye-opening experience,” said Sena. “I had heard about Roland quality, but I had no idea the company had such a broad range of products with such amazing functionality. I’m considering adding a printing service component to my current pre-press business and Roland offers exactly what I’m looking for at a price I can afford.”
