The evidence is everywhere: personalised is profitable. And you can be in profit quicker than you think with a benchtop UV printer from Roland.
It can't be overstated: customers today want on-demand, personalised service and unique, custom products – and they are willing to pay more to get exactly what they want. So if you can deliver quality, stand-out personalisation in your printing business, the benefits are tangible, and the profits are real – and they're calculable.
We've developed a clever new ROI calculator especially for our VersaUV LEF series – compact UV printers that deliver the exceptional quality, infinitely customisable products the market is shouting for – to show you how quickly your investment could pay for itself.
Already successfully trialled at the FESPA Global Print Expo in May 2019, this simple online tool is now available for anyone to use. In just five quick steps and using a few details based on what you'd like to print and in what volumes, the calculator will estimate the profit you'll generate each week using your VersaUV LEF, along with the time it will take to pay off your investment. It takes just a few minutes to learn how quickly you could break even and start making money – results that could really surprise you!
The UV printer market is growing and is set to be worth a massive $550 million by 2024. Today's bespoke and on-demand culture isn't slowing down, so print businesses like yours must respond with high-quality, highly creative custom products, in super-fast turnaround times. It's not enough to simply wait and respond to growing demand: if you want to get ahead, you need to take personalisation to the next level now.
So how do you achieve it?
1. Move fast
Get ready to catch the wave on its upward trajectory. That means having the right printer that delivers quality, versatility and speed as standard. The Roland VersaUV LEF range of printers can be up and running on the day of installation, printing high-quality graphics using durable Roland ECO-UV inks onto almost any surface, fast. The ROI calculator will show you how taking action now could make you a profit sooner than you think.
2. Move differently
To stand out from the competition, you also need to be able to offer unique products. With a Roland VersaUV LEF printer, you can print on virtually any surface – hard or soft, rough or smooth, rigid or flexible – even heat-sensitive. With fast-drying white and clear gloss to add to vibrant CMYK, you can create textured effects and colours that zing. From wooden signs to glass photo frames, and from golf balls to stationery, your customers can buy creativity that's limited only by imagination. And with smart personalisation capabilities, you can print lots of different designs on many different surfaces, all in the same print run. The ROI calculator shows you how different products can make different levels of profit – so why not have a play around to see what's possible?
3. Move smart
A Roland benchtop VersaUV LEF printer is clearly a smart choice, and there's a model in the range to suit every need. If you're just starting out or looking to add custom printing to your existing services, then the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i could be ideal. The range also includes the mid-sized VersaUV LEF2-200, and goes right up to the more industrial Roland VersaUV LEF2-300 – perfect for businesses who perhaps already offer customisation, but are looking to expand into new markets, take on new lines or speed up production. But what's really smart is that before you make any investment choice, you can calculate the potential return on your investment, along with how fast you'll start to turn a profit with your new VersaUV machine.
Whether you're an entrepreneur, new start-up or established graphics company, the VersaUV LEF series can help you attract new customers, diversify your offering, and access new markets – and the Roland ROI calculator will give you an immediate idea of the all-important financial expectations of your investment. Use it as many times and with as many different permutations as you like to explore the almost limitless opportunities for growth through UV printing.
