Greatest Hits

This is the time of year that everyone seems to have a list. Best books, best movies, best dressed celebrity dogs. You get the idea. A lot of them seem pretty arbitrary, but did get me thinking about the past year, and it turns out it has been an awfully busy one here.

Here's a list of just some of the highlights of the new products, tools, and solutions that Roland has introduced this year. I’m sure I’m missing a few, and they are in no particular order:

  • VersaCAMM VS printer series
  • VersaUV LEC-540
  • DWX-30 Dental Mill
  • GX-640 Pro Cutter
  • VersaCUT print trimmers
  • Cartridge Recycling
  • A complete Spanish website
  • Revamped Roland Academy training, including new webinars and Digital Printing Boot Camp
  • 6 new medias including clear and white Static Cling, Heatsoft heat transfer media, and updates of some of our most popular banners and papers.

Whew. That's quite a list.

In between, Roland products managed to grab prestigious awards from Viscom, LabelExpo, and European Digital Press, and we hosted countless tradeshows and promotions. Not to mention the contests, like "Best of the Worst." We also announced an exciting new partnership with Richard Childress Racing, and continued to expand the Creative Center. 2011 looks like it will continue at the same breakneck pace, and I can't wait to report on it as it happens.

I hope your business has been as busy as ours, and I hope at least some of these offerings have made you busier, or made your life easier, or at least brought a smile to you. What was your favorite Roland development in the past year, or even of all time? Did I miss any?
