Working with Roland DG

Graphic Arts Supplies has been working with Roland DG since 2009. In 2017, Steve Murphy and Michael Clarke took over the company, partly due to the relationship that had already been established with Roland DG.

Steve considers a highlight of the successful partnership “attending Roland DG dealer events and trade shows and getting to know the team.” He enjoys keeping in regular contact with the Roland DG Sales Team and “working with a global brand and specialised range of products”.

Industry Outlook

Steve believes that the textile and heat transfer market is seeing growth in the industry, as “new customers are looking for ways to get into printing on new substrates at entry level”. He believes that the smaller, more affordable desktop solutions such as the Roland DG BN-20 Desktop Printer Cutter or the new BN-20A Desktop Printer Cutter are “well suited” to this market, and demand for these machines has certainly increased.

Roland DG has a “good customer following” and provides “good service and training support nationally.”
