Roland DGA Holiday Customization

'Twas the Personalization Before Christmas

‘Twas a Saturday in December when all through DGA
Not a creature was printing, not even Jay.
The blanks were all ordered and the heat press was on,
All to make ready for a print marathon.
Lily was queuing up files for the XT,
And Kevin prepped for an LEF printing spree.

Then through the front doors the employee families came,
In a flurry of excitement to make something great.
There was Lisa and Angela and Dede and Jack,
And many more employees in a big holiday pack.

While snacking on donuts and drinking Starbucks.

Employees got to create some magical gifts— a selection of photos on canvas and custom notebooks printed on the VersaUV LEF2-300 flatbed printer.


The Roland DG elves were all run-off-their-feet,
Creating personalized items that were fit for the tree.
Using direct-to-garment, dye-sub and VersaUV,
And even decorating guitar picks with the LD.

Ben Fellowes customized guitar picks with metallized gold on the LD-80 laser decorator as a gift for his musical nephew.


From coasters to posters and everything else,
With Roland DG customization they added value and wealth.
Then when it was over they all drove out of sight,
And wished all a happy holiday and to everyone, a good night.
