The UK division of Roland DG, a Japanese-based manufacturer of wide-format printers, cutters and engraving devices, recently staged what it called a “Creative Centre Experience Day” at its Clevedon facility outside Bristol.
The event was free and allowed visitors to freely wander through the Creative Centre, which is what the company calls the inspirational hub of Roland DG UK. Educational classes were held throughout the day that focused on all aspects of print—from hardware and software updates to the latest applications, and from design all the way through to finishing.
Joe Wigzell, manager of Roland DG UK’s Academy and Creative Centre, was there throughout the event to demonstrate machinery and provide hands-on instruction on how Roland’s equipment can be used to bring new ideas and applications to life and generate more revenue for attendees’ businesses.
The company says that the feedback from attendees has been very positive.
Chas Rust, proprietor at a shop called Go For Leisure, attended primarily to find out more about UV printing. As well as gaining some valuable information on UV primers for printing special materials such as glass, Chas told the company in his feedback that he was also pleased to get the opportunity to discover more about vehicle wrapping—a sector he had not previously considered.
