Bow Design is a small business, but its new Roland DG TrueVis VG-640 has allowed it to take some of the UK's biggest companies as clients.
Matthew Anderson bought a small sign company, based in Swansea in September 2017. He decided to add to some additional printer power to the business – rebranded as Bow Design – almost straightaway.
‘We had a 14 year old Roland VersaCamm SP-540 – which is still going strong – plus a laminator and a CNC router, but I wanted to go after large accounts,’ he said. ‘A contract with one of the UK's biggest retailers depended on upgrading our printing capacity.’
Matthew saw printers from a number of manufacturers in action but decided to stay with Roland, narrowing down the choice to a TrueVis VG-640 wide format inkjet printer/cutter.
‘The TrueVis VG-640’s speed and quality are great and the RIP is almost identical to the VersaCamm's so I knew it would be easy to use. You know what you are getting with Roland, and that is a quality machine,’ Matthew said.
As a direct result of the installation, Bow Design is now producing work for seven supermarket branches including window graphics, point of sale, internal hanging signs, filling station graphics and more – with new Easter displays about to be installed.
