The latest video instalment of Roland’s national tour of customers features Pace General Manager Neil Tucker discussing his satisfaction with the Roland VersaCAMM SP-540i and Eco-Sol Max inks...

Pace operates from two sites, a purpose built production unit incorporating the creative suite and offset printing and finishing facilities, and a busy retail outlet in the town centre where its Roland VersaCAMM SP-540i printer/cutter is proudly displayed within sight of the shop floor. Pace’s “I’m a Roland user and proud of it” video can be seen at www.rolanddg.co.uk/iamproud.

Neil Tucker, general manager of Pace comments, “The VersaCAMM attracts plenty of attention from customers keen to discover what it can do and our showroom is full of great examples of its versatility. It will print anything from paper to banner material, gloss or matt vinyl and magnetic material.”

One look around the Pace showroom tells you that the company sets itself very high standards, and the superiority of Roland’s Eco-Sol Max inks and the harmony between the Roland printer, inks and VersaWorks RIP are essential to meeting those standards.

Says Neil, “Eco-Sol Max inks have been our ink of choice from the start. There are other inks available but we always wanted to use the ink that was designed specifically for use with Roland technology. It would be very easy to buy a cheaper unnamed brand but you never know what you’re going to get. With Eco-Sol Max, however, you know the quality will be first-class every time.

“The four-colour inkset allows us to match colours customers bring in. It’s durable, reliable and has never let us or our customers down.”

On a daily basis Pace is creating and producing graphics for signage, exhibition systems, banners and all manner of graphics and other items on its Roland. Neil says that the odourless ink allows them to run the Roland VersaCAMM for eight to ten hours a day without affecting staff or customers in the shop and its quick-drying properties mean they can offer a true on-demand service.

Pace use the larger capacity 440ml Eco-Sol Max ink cartridges which provide extra value for money and improved longevity. Yet even when cartridges run out mid-way through a job, Neil says the exchange is straightforward and results in no discolouration or lines at the point of changeover.

“We value our customers too much to risk using anything but the best equipment and inks. Having the Roland has helped grow our business and we can turnaround high-quality jobs, quicker. We’ve worked hard to earn a fantastic reputation for service and quality and wouldn’t chance throwing it away by cutting corners,” concludes Neil.
