Busy Signage Business Boosts Productivity and Cuts Costs with Roland EJ-640s
With over 27 years’ experience in the industry, successful signage business Smartposts of Edwardstown in South Australia, prides itself on high service levels and a reputation for providing quality signage solutions for its customers.
Part of the company’s success is the team behind it. Founder and Director Stephen Banwell has built a strong team of experienced sign manufacturers, installers, designers and management staff who are committed to achieving the best results possible for their clients.
Equipment is the other main component of Smartposts’ success. The company has been using Roland printers for over 15 years, most recently running 3 Roland PRO4 XF-640 wide format printers that were purchased in 2013.
With his business continuing to grow, Stephen was keen to boost productivity and efficiency even further by upgrading his Roland printers. He researched other manufacturers’ printers, but came back to Roland. “Roland best suited my needs heading into the future."
“The EJ-640 promises a quick turnaround time, ensuring we can meet the deadlines and high demands within our industry.”
Due to the speed and productivity that is achieved whilst maintaining quality, Stephen chose 3 Roland SOLJET EJ-640 wide format printers. “The EJ-640 promises a quick turnaround time, ensuring we can meet the deadlines and high demands within our industry”. The EJ-640s run all day, producing a range of applications, including: real estate signage, billboards, wallpaper, car wraps, window signage, banners, canvas prints, and stickers.A few months down the track, Stephen has no regrets with his purchase. Not only has he found the machines to be extremely reliable and easy-to-use, but he’s already noticed the cost savings for his business. With 1-litre ink cartridges, and 35% lower running costs than the competition, the EJ-640s have been built for high-volume, low-maintenance printing. “I have noticed a reduction in the costs of ink, the Roland EJ-640 [is] a much more economical option for my company”.
"The 5 Year Warranty and the support that I receive from Roland plays a major part in the reasons for my returning."
As with all Roland printers, warranty and support are built in, and were major factors that influenced Stephen’s purchase decision. “The 5 Year Warranty and the support that I receive from Roland plays a major part in the reasons for my returning. Roland [has] embraced myself… and my staff in the highest regard. Their ‘nothing too hard’ attitude is second to none… I would highly recommend them to anyone in the industry.”
