We’ve recently updated our demonstration room at YPS to create an inspiring area for visitors, customers and the staff. We used our Roland TrueVIS VG-540 with Versaworks Dual to create wallpaper for our Roland demo area.
Wall decoration is an exciting, rapidly growing area of design. A feature wall mural or a bespoke wall design can transform a room for both business and home. There is a market for creating unique and personalised products with wall decoration being no exception.
Wallpaper vinyls and papers are available in a whole range of textures and finishes meaning you can really create a stunning and unique design. Roland printers can also be configured with white and metallic inks (depending on printer series.) for even further print options.
“Large-format digital printing is a great way to expand your range of consulting services and offer truly personalised solutions that will wow your clients.”
Bespoke or personalised samples can be produced quickly for easy proofing with clients. The ability to print samples on the same machine that will produce the approved job means clients expectations can be confidently met.
We created our artwork as a PDF in Adobe Illustrator to the size of the full wall and then opened the file in Versaworks. Versaworks Dual, Roland’s RIP software, has some clever features to help you prepare your file for printing. The tiling option allows you to set the size as well as the amount of panels that you require for your wall. The ability to add a bleed to each panel is a major benefit and makes applying the wallpaper a little easier as it acts as a guide. The preview window allows you to see how design is split into panels before sending the file to print. Should the need arise to reprint a panel, this can be done very easily without printing the full wall.
Our Roland wall was printed on a variety of textured Decal brand wall vinyls. Finishes include canvas, woodgrain, leather and stone. Designs used for our wall range from the traditional bird and rococoo styles to the scandi and geometric. The TrueVIS ink used in the VG-540 offers a wide colour gamut and allows our designs to be bold and vibrant. Roland TrueVIS ink is also Greenguard Gold certified making it ideal for classrooms and nurseries.
The Roland TrueVIS VG-540 is available for demonstration at Your Print Specialists. Call the team on 0191 256 6889 for more info and to arrange a visit to our lovely demo room!
