2014 Roland Creative Awards: We’re Sending 3 Lucky Users to imagiNATION!

Our 2014 Roland Creative Awards contest kicked off last week and we asked our users to submit photos of their best work produced on a Roland device. One weekly winner will be selected for a total of 3 weeks, based on creativity, innovation and execution. Each winner will receive a trip to Roland imagiNATION, our first inkjet user conference, including event admission, airfare and 4 nights at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas. To enter the contest or view more detailed information, click here or visit the Roland DGA corporate Facebook page.

This Monday, we selected our first weekly winner! Congratulations to Sticker City of Sherman Oaks, California! We saw tons of amazing entries, but Sticker City took the top spot with a photo of a holographic multi-color chrome wrap that was produced on their SOLJET XR-640 printer/cutter. While the car underneath (Lamborghini Aventador Roadster) is inherently gorgeous, the wrap is absolutely stunning. See the photo and details below:

“A very good client of ours that is always willing to push for the next big thing asked us to come up with something no one has done before and asked us to show the world something out of this world for his new white Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. We went to the drawing board AKA our Photoshop program and after many hours of thought and trial and error we came out with this holographic multi color chrome wrap. This was an extremely complicated process with continues patterns from body panel to body panel which required application of multiple layers to complete the final effect. We started by wrapping the entire painted surface with the Avery conform chrome. Then we designed and printed the second layered graphic on Avery Laminate using our Roland XR-640. The second layer was applied using a wet application directly on top of the chrome giving the vehicle a splash of chrome paint affect. We then completed the design by incorporating a hologram graphic on the upper side portion. This extremely complicated process to wrap a vehicle has been a huge hit all over social media with over 300 pictures of this car on Instagram alone. #arabventador” – Andy Soleimani, Sticker City

That’s not all folks! Be sure to get your photos in because we still have 2 more weekly prizes up for grabs. We would love to send you to imagiNATION, so hit us with your best shot!
