Roland ran a competition at Sign & Digital UK 2011 for customers to win a place at the industry-leading Roland DG Academy, located in its dedicated facilities at both Walsall College and Clevedon. Lucky winners chose to attend the Academy’s Application and Finishing course.
This course enables customers to learn how to prepare and apply vinyl, from flood coating, to applying print to board and windows. Attendees also learn basic lamination and mounting techniques. Those attending the course were a mixture of digital print novices and professionals looking to diversify into sign-making from other allied industries.
Marc Busby, Roland DG Academy Trainer, comments, “Often it is the application and finishing tasks of sign-making that concern new customers most - from how to put lettering on a sign or vehicle, to how to apply graphics to windows. This course shows how to prepare, apply and ensure a smooth bubble-free finish, and is a not-to-be-missed course for anyone new to wide-format or looking to refresh their skills”.
