Colours almost jump off the page at Ontario's Watsons


When Watsons Engraving added signage to its offering it chose a Roland for its first digital printer, and hasn't looked back.

Renamed Watsons Engraving & Signage Inc when the founders' son Scott Watson joined the company following his training at a local sign shop, the business serves a range of customers in Dundas, Ontario, Canada.

The company creates incredible interior and exterior signage, wayfinding signage, wall and window graphics, and vehicle wraps and lettering, plus decals, labels, and tags – and employs a graphic artist as part of its team. They serve many industrial clients, small shops, restaurants and retailers.

To achieve this work, 'Rolands have been a constant in our shop', says Scott. "They are easy to use and have outstanding print quality."

However, it was the installation of a Roland TrueVIS VG-640 printer/cutter and TrueVIS ink that really made a mark with Watsons.

"It's an awesome printer – super fast," says Scott. "The very first job we ran, the bright greens and blues almost jumped off the page.

"We especially love the colour vibrancy, consistency and overall durability of the ink."

The TrueVIS's double-whammy functionality has other benefits, as Scott explains: "It's really helpful to have print/cut capability in one machine. A standalone cutter would have been costlier and would take up more space."
