Roland wide-format inkjet printing and contour cutting technology took center stage at the Roland University “Born to Wrap” vehicle graphics workshop last month in Irvine, CA.

Taught by Matt Richart and Dallas Fowler of Digital EFX Wraps, the sold-out workshop drew attendees from as far away as Canada and Nicaragua. Throughout the two-day course, Roland customers learned design and production techniques and gained experience installing a wide range of vehicle graphics on Dodge Calibers.

"The hands-on wrapping at the workshop was really helpful,” says Ronnie Fagundes of Spy Printwear in Hanford, CA. "The instructors also gave us great ideas for scaling and laying out graphics to make the process more efficient."

Now in its fifth year, the Born to Wrap workshop teaches professionals everything they need to know to profit from the growing vehicle graphics market. Working side by side with industry experts, students have the opportunity to wrap an entire vehicle from bumper to bumper. The class teaches attendees first-hand how to take a job from the estimation stage to finished wrap and also includes an overview of media and lamination options.

"I appreciated learning how to work with the wrap materials at a fast pace," says Mariano Valle of Publigrafix in Managua, Nicaragua. "Time is money, and the workflow tips provided at the workshop are invaluable."

The Born to Wrap workshop is just one of many learning opportunities offered through Roland University. See
