Roland DGA recently held a dye-sublimation workshop, the first of its kind, together with wide format printing industry trade association, SGIA. The Operation Sublimation, Mission: Wide Format Graphics event gathered together screen printers, digital graphics professionals, dye-sublimation beginners and experts at the Roland headquarters in California to learn the ins-and-outs of dye-sublimation and colour management for dye-sublimation applications.
The three-day workshop featured industry-leading experts that included Jonathan Read from Media One Digital Imaging Solutions, Michael Sanders from Top Value Fabrics, James Coulston from Sensient Inks and Roland DGA’s dye-sublimation expert, Lily Hunter. Covering a diversity of topics that ranged from the right paper and inks to use, to the return on investment, attendees were shown the possibilities that Roland dye-sublimation offers. They were also presented with in-depth knowledge of the features of the new Ergosoft Roland Edition 2 software.
In addition to covering dye-sublimation production, the event presented attendees with an opportunity to discover other Roland technologies. Roland expert, Lily Hunter, likened it to ‘a personalised, mini-tradeshow’. It enabled attendees to get first-hand experience of Roland’s UV printers and other machines that inspire creativity and open up new application possibilities.
