Roland Heroes assemble – with more invited to join
Roland DG has already discovered many Roland Heroes, with more to be revealed as the search for the most incredible Roland users continues.
The Roland Hero Awards celebrate the people and ideas that make the vibrant, supportive and exciting Roland community what it is. Launched in April, the campaign shines a spotlight on the entrepreneurship, creativity and passion that in turn drive the innovations of Roland. Customers from across EMEA have been sharing their stories and in return have been listed on the Roland Hero online roll of honour, with the overall winner set to experience an unforgettable holiday as a thank you.
Recently Roland announced it has extended the deadline for entries to December 31st 2018, to allow Roland users more time to share their fascinating stories.
"We've been so impressed and inspired by the Roland customers who have already got involved that we simply wanted to hear more," says Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing, EMEA at Roland DG. "We're excited to tell the world about them and their stories and look forward to crowning the overall winner of Roland Hero Awards in January."
Customers already named Roland Heroes span multiple markets, including signage and display. The search has uncovered Eastprint, a German advertising business that truly puts its trust in Roland systems, running five Roland SOLJET printers to deliver everything they need, when they need it.
Roland Heroes in the sports industry have also shared their stories. Lieuwe Boards is a Dutch kite surfboard specialist that uses Roland VersaSTUDIO BN-20 technology to print custom graphics strong enough to withstand serious waves, while in the Canary Islands In Your Face is proud to have succeeded in building up a successful graphics business for the sailing market, relying on Roland’s popular and versatile integrated print and cut technology from the very beginning. Also in Spain is Taymory, which has developed an incredible swimwear collection with synchronised swimming champion Ona Carbonell, using a Roland Texart RT-640.
The Roland Hero website features many more – AO Design in Germany, E-Styl' in France, The Binary Box in the UK, Peñalver in Spain and Stampa Italiana in Italy are just a few – all doing exceptional things with their Roland systems.
Roland customers interested in taking part should visit Rolandhero and submit their hero stories before the closing date of 31st December 2018. Terms and conditions can be accessed via the website.
