Never Settle for Latex
Never Settle for Latex

A closer look at a Roland vs. a latex printer.

When investing in a wide format printer, don’t pay the high price of settling for less. Roland inkjets empower your business with the productivity and profitability that latex printers just can’t offer. That’s why for over 25 years, more graphic and sign professionals have chosen Roland DG products.

Don't settle for Higher Prices.

Roland saves more. Latex costs more.

Roland eco-solvent inkjet technology is more economical than the competition in every sense. The upfront price is better than a comparable latex printer and the operating costs are lower. Take a closer look:

Don't settle for limited versatility.

Rolands empower. Latex limits.

GREENGUARD Gold-Certified Roland eco-solvent inks are fast drying, and include light black, metallic and white options for stunning effects that sell for an average of 30% more. Or you can spend 30% more on latex inks not available in light black, metallic or white, and do less.

Don't settle for stoppable.

High-productivity Roland. Time consuming latex.

When you build your business on an inkjet printer, efficiency, ease-of-use, and uptime are crucial. Roland quality and reliability plus fast drying OEM inks allow you to go from RIP and print to laminate and install without delay. Pros like V8 Supercar teams and nationwide wrap installers rely on their Rolands to produce thousands of jobs a year at the high pace their businesses demand.

With lower heat requirements and greater versatility, Rolands allow you to print profitable applications like heat-transfers and high-end displays. The result? Make more money, while spending less on electrical installations and temperature control.

Superior ECO-SOL MAX. Dull latex.

Roland ECO-SOL MAX inks deliver fast drying and vibrant colours that maintain the matte, satin and glossy finishes of printed materials, providing print quality that is noticeably better than the always-flat colours produced by latex inks.

Don't settle for less green.

Eco conscious Roland. Power hungry latex.

There is a misconception told by competitors that Roland eco-solvent inks are not as environmentally friendly as their latex counterparts. This is simply not true. In fact,  both Roland eco-solvent and latex inks are GREENGUARD Gold Certified for low VOC's and indoor safety. The biggest difference is that latex inks use significantly more heat and power to cure, result in higher room temperatures, and only offer the same GREENGUARD certification that Roland eco-solvent ink offers. Latex inks are also more per sqmtr. and less durable, making the case for Roland eco-solvent ink clear.

GREENGUARD Gold Certification includes safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly) and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments like schools and hospitals. This type of certification is becoming a key factor to a growing number of architects, designers and facility managers seeking to incorporate third-party certified, healthier, more sustainable products into their buildings.
