Roland enters direct to garment printing.

Roland VersaStudio BT-12 Direct-to-Garment Printer.

At the recent Long Beach Show Roland showed their new direct-to-garment printer—the VersaStudio BT-12. This could be of interest to digital and sign shops looking to diversify. It obviously can’t offer the speed, volume, and diversity of textile screen printing equipment but for a digital and graphics shop asked to do small garment orders, it might be ideal. Wendy at Stanley’s, Calgary can tell you more but the essential details are that its print size is 8.5 ” x 11″, it prints on 100% cotton substrates, and costs about U.S.$5,000.
