Me Myself and Misha: innovating with Roland DG technology

Print Solutions Industrial Solutions

While the pandemic holds negative memories for many, for some, it served as the impetus to pursue their passions. Becky Byrne, formerly a beauty therapist, known as Misha in the gaming community, is one such individual whose success story blossomed amidst the challenges of the pandemic.

Becky's foray into the realm of digital artistry stemmed from a shift away from her previous career in beauty therapy. With the closure of her salon due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she tapped into her inherent love for art and graphic design to forge a new path. Drawing upon her artistic talents, she began crafting digital artwork, branded packaging, and stickers for online content creators and streamers.

Established in 2020, Me Myself and Misha swiftly evolved from a business offering design services for streamers and gaming conventions to providing a diverse array of products, ranging from stickers and tumblers to custom packaging and apparel.

As the demand for her designs continues to soar, Becky has been actively seeking a printer that can not only meet her printing needs but also alleviate the burden of running a one person operation. Enter, the Roland DG VersaStudio BN2-20 desktop inkjet printer/cutter. The BN2-20 has completely transformed operations, providing a compact and affordable device that seamlessly integrates printing and contour cutting capabilities. The desktop printer/cutter is a versatile solution to meet Becky’s diverse printing needs, whilst removing the need for multiple printing and cutting machines.The BN2-20's versatility has allowed Becky to print high quality stickers, apparel transfers, packaging materials, and more, all with exceptional colour accuracy and vibrancy.

Unlike her previous set up, which demanded constant supervision, the Roland DG BN2-20, equipped with VersaWorks 6 professional output software, empowers Becky with control over print settings and functionalities. This advanced software facilitates proactive planning and organisation of print production with its five print queues, five hot folders, and limitless queue settings.

Becky can now effortlessly save and recall preferences, capture specific print settings, and streamline production into a fast, automated, and uninterrupted process. This newfound efficiency not only saves her time but also grants her the freedom to explore and innovate further.

Becky explained, ‘Thanks to the BN2-20 Roland DG machine and its integrated VersaWorks 6 professional output software, I have unlocked precious time in my day while gaining a virtual extra pair of hands The machine really does more than I would have ever imagined a printer could do.'

For Me Myself and Misha, closely monitoring the printing process is vital, especially given their tendency to run shorter bursts of personalised orders. This is where the company has leveraged Roland DG Connect, providing real time access to crucial data on print jobs and overall business operations. This on-demand information empowers Me Myself and Misha to optimise print runs, adjusting their structure as needed to maximise efficiency.

Becky added, ‘Roland DG Connect has revolutionised our operations. We can now schedule runs, track efficiency, and analyse our cycles on the go. This software has enabled me to focus on business expansion and identify areas where I can enhance my design process.'

The inclusion of VersaWorks 6 professional output software further enhances the BN2-20's capabilities, providing Me Myself and Misha greater control over print settings and functionalities. Media set functions and the new sheet cut function streamline job set up and execution, while automatic sensor adjustments ensure optimal results with every print.  

Becky's partnership with Roland DG opens doors to further growth and expansion opportunities. With plans to pay off her current equipment investment and upgrade to the latest Roland DG UV-LED printer, the VersaStudio BD-8. Future plans are to diversify product offerings and explore new markets with direct to object printing capabilities.

Me Myself and Misha exemplifies the power of resilience, creativity, and innovation in the face of adversity. By embracing Roland DG technology, Becky has transformed her passion for art into a thriving business, offering high quality, customisable products.
