The Proof is in Your Hand

Until recently, producing realistic package prototypes was a very expensive proposition requiring either using specialized proofing equipment, or stopping the press to run samples. New Roland technologies are simplifying this process, making it easier, less expensive and more efficient than ever to create effective package prototypes that match the final product.

For packaging prototypes, Roland offers a complete line of inkjet printer/cutters, including new UV-LED and metallic eco-solvent models. All come with VersaWorks RIP software, which includes color management tools, variable data printing and other advanced features to automate production and ensure quality results. Roland printer/cutters take a design entirely through the printing and finishing stages, including die-cutting, all on one device.

Packaging Prototypes

Roland offers four inkjet lines ideal for the production of packaging prototypes: the VersaUV series of UV-LED inkjet printer/cutters, and three eco-solvent printer/cutters – SOLJET, VersaCAMM VSi and VersaStudio models. All come with a white ink option, integrated die cutting capabilities, a maximum print resolution of 1440 dpi, and Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology for superior image quality in every print mode. Roland’s VersaUV also comes with clear ink for interesting textures and spot varnish effects in matte and gloss finishes. All eco-solvent printer/cutter lines include options for metallic silver ink which creates shimmering metallic effects.  Light black, included in the SOLJET Pro 4 model, ensures seamless grayscale reproduction for flawless photographic images.

What Our Users Are Saying...

“Our clients were amazed to learn that the prototype we sent was not a full production version. It was that realistic.”

What Our Users Are Saying...

“We applied the clear coat until we had established the proper thickness for the application. Being able to accurately control the thickness of a coating is a very unique feature.”
