At the start of October, in a surprise announcement from Roland, the follow on to the popular VersaCAMM VS models, the flagship VS-i was released. By the end of the day printMAX had once again secured the first worldwide sale.
Having historically sold Roland machines since 2007, the VS range back in 2010 saw an increase in opportunity for printMAX. Not only did the UK company sell the first VS in Europe, but they also went on to sell and install more VS printers than any other Roland dealer, an accolade that most certainly contributed towards their first year as Roland’s most successful authorised dealer.
3 years later and into the third consecutive year of holding onto the title of Roland’s most successful authorised dealer, printMAX have secured the first worldwide sale of the long awaited successor in the VersaCAMM VS range, the brand new VS-i.
Lisa Moncrieff, Roland DG UK Marketing Manager, “I can confirm that printMAX, on the day of launch not only secured the first European sale but also the first global sale of the VS-i series.”
Existing Roland user and printMAX customer, Creative Signs and Graphics, looked to upgrade their SP-540i within the first day of the VS-i hitting the UK market. The sign company based in Maidenhead looked to the VS-i as a way of offering more to their customers, the white ink option was favoured to enhance their window graphics.
“Our SP has proved to have been a bit of a workhorse for us, reliable and productive, when we looked to the future we could only see ourselves looking at Roland options. printMAX have been fantastic in understanding our business needs and technological requirements, the VS-i is absolutely the right printer for us.” Steve Green, Creative Signs and Graphics.
The Roland VersaCAMM VS-i, with the latest light black ink option, running the newly improved ECO-SOL MAX2 inks, offers more versatility and higher production rates than previous models. The improvements enable greater vibrancy, less odour, a faster drying time and easier input with front loading capability. The white and metallic, in comparison with their predecessors, have an increased density allowing for improved vibrancy.
Chris Martin, printMAX Sales Manager, “The Roland VersaCAMM is a fantastic piece of kit, our customers never fault it. With the new improvements I’m positive the VS-i will prove to be a popular choice for those looking at print/cut options.”
The main selling point however, is value. With a lower introductory price than ever before starting at just £10,499, the VS-i offers affordable technology without compromising on quality.
