Before I shop elsewhere - does Roland supply...

Post by NinjaUK » Thu Aug 27, 2015 9:58 am

Hi looking for the following

Sublimation printer and inks (for making mugs)
mug press/heat
sublimation ink supplies for above

'metallic' label printer, basically I see these horrible gold labels with black text on trophies occasionally and have been asked if I do them (instead of traditional metal engraved) , understand they can make costs EVEN cheaper for the end customer, so asking if you sell/supply/reccomend one of these said little print devices?

thanks chaps and chapettes

Evening NinjaUK

Thanks for the post and your interest in the Roland machines.

You're in luck and we can help with your needs...

For the sublimation, Roland offers the Texart RT-640 dye-sub printer - http://www.rolanddg.co.uk/products/dye_ ... on/rt-640/. The RT-640 is a 1600mm wide production machine, able to be configured as a high speed 4 colour printer or an 8 colour machine with orange and violet for an even greater range of colour reproduction. If you need to produce a good volume of mugs, mouse mats, t-shirts, clothing or much more, the RT-640 is a perfect machine and works in harmony with the Roland Texart SBL-3 sublimation inks.

As for the metallic label printer, Roland offers a number of EcoSolvent print & cut machines that can print metallic and white inks, as well as then being able to both contour and perf-cut them when they are printed! The VS-300i would be a great place to start your investigations as it gives a good balance between speed, quality and price, but at 760mm wide it then opens up lots of other potential applications and uses - http://www.rolanddg.co.uk/products/prin ... vs-series/. If this is however a little larger than you'd planned, you can have the BN-20 - http://www.rolanddg.co.uk/products/print-and-cut/bn-20/ - as a compact desktop version.

If these machines seem of interest, we can arrange for samples or a demonstration for you as required, so let me know your thoughts and what you're preferred next step is.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks Rob
I think I am looking more down the route of a Vinyl Printer now, for other works we do too.

Have looked at a Roland model recently

Just wondering how you got on with this and if you went to look at one of the Roland printers or in fact purchased?
