A closer look at a Roland vs. a latex printer.
Roland eco-solvent printers and printer/cutters empower your business with productivity and profitability that latex printers just can't provide. That's why, for over 20 years, more pros have chosen Roland.
Don't settle for Higher Prices.
Roland saves more. Latex costs more.
Roland eco-solvent inkjet technology is more economical than the competition in every sense. The upfront price is better than a comparable latex printer and the operating costs are lower. Take a closer look:
Cost of Operation
HP Latex 360 will cost $11,162.50 more per year*
to operate than a Roland RF-640 or VS-640i
* Based on printing CMYK, 8 prints per hour, 4 hours a day, 21 days a month.
"Having technology like the Roland VersaCAMM allows us to be both innovative and price competitive. It fits right into our business model."
Craig Furst, AAA Flag & Banner
Don't settle for limited versatility.
Rolands empower. Latex limits.
Roland inkjets empower you to meet all your customers' needs, expand your product offering and grow your business like no latex device can.
Don't settle for stoppable.
High-productivity Roland. Time consuming latex.
When you build your business on an inkjet printer, efficiency, ease-of-use, and uptime are crucial. Roland quality and reliability plus fast drying Eco-Sol MAX inks allow you to go from RIP and print to laminate and install without delay. Pros like NASCAR race teams and nationwide wrap installers rely on their Rolands to produce thousands of jobs a year at the high pace their businesses demand.
With lower heat requirements and greater versatility, Rolands allow you to print profitable applications like heat-transfers and high-end displays. The result? Make more money, while spending less on electrical installations and temperature control.
"We have a latex printer but we prefer not to use it much. It takes too long to warm up, only handles certain media, and is a hassle to set-up for each job. With our Roland, we load the media, push print and boom - it's printing."
Phillip Yu, Gamut Media
Don't settle for inferior machinery.
Built for pros. Not for consumers.
With a Roland inkjet, you get a greater build quality than latex devices. Problems with latex machines include inferior loading mechanisms that make loading media frustratingly difficult and add unnecessary time onto every print job.
Designed for heavy day-to-day industrial operation, Rolands are famously reliable and long-lasting, and come with a 2-Year Trouble-Free Warranty to back it up. The best latex can do is tell you to spend a couple thousand more dollars on an extended warranty. Do the math.
"Of all the equipment in our shop, the machines I wouldn't want do without are the Rolands. Fortunately, they're built like tanks, so I don't have to."
James Camper, Meeks Group
Don't settle for average quality.
Superior Eco-Sol MAX. Dull latex.
Roland Eco-Sol MAX inks deliver fast drying and vibrant colors that maintain the matte, satin and glossy finishes of printed materials, providing print quality that is noticeably better than the always-flat colors produced by latex inks.
"There are so many other companies out there, but their quality is not as crisp. Our VersaCAMMs give us the versatility and high quality output we need to keep our edge in the market."
Thomas Wink, Virtuoso Graphics
Don't settle for less green.
Eco conscious Roland. Power hungry latex.
There is a misconception told by competitors that Eco-Sol MAX inks are not as environmentally friendly as their latex counterparts. This is simply not true. In fact, both Roland Eco-Sol MAX and latex inks are GREENGUARD Gold certified for low VOC's and indoor safety. The biggest difference is that latex inks use significantly more heat and power to cure, result in higher room temperatures, and only offer the same GREENGUARD certification that Eco-Sol MAX offers. Latex inks are also more per sqft. and less durable, making the case for Eco-Sol MAX clear.
"In motocross, some companies advertise that they don't use inkjet printers – I advertise that I use Roland because the color is outstanding and the inks are eco certified."
Jace Wade, Impulse Graphx
Don't settle for mediocre customer service.
