The new EJ-640 DECO printer from Roland DG is now available across EMEA. Designed specifically for the interior décor market, the EJ-640 DECO runs innovative water-based inks.

Vibrant, safe and eco-friendly

The Roland EJ-640 DECO meets numerous demands from today’s market: sustainability, health and safety, personalization, economy, and versatility. The solution is ideal for a variety of customized décor products including wallpaper, lampshades, blinds, and posters, plus exhibition graphics, outdoor promotions, and more.

Great quality for custom décor

For The Print Hive, the Roland EJ-640 DECO is integral to its bespoke digital wallpaper printing service, powered by its Online Designer tool. This allows customers to design their own personalized wallpaper and visualize it in their own home, receive a tailored quotation, and place an order online.

“We have seen significant growth in demand for décor in the retail, commercial and domestic markets,” says Chaz Dobson, director at The Print Hive Limited. “After testing the EJ-640 DECO for six months we have switched completely from another brand to the new Roland for all of our décor and wallpaper.

“We’re convinced by the benefits of a water-based solution that meets all health and safety requirements without productivity or quality constraints. We’re positively impressed by the EJ-640 DECO’s fast turnaround speeds – prints are instantly dry, with no outgassing required – and the low running costs compared to alternative solutions.”

The perfect time for a dedicated device

Ahlstrom-Munksjo, the leading manufacturer of wallpaper for digital printing under the WallStar Digital brand, welcomes the Roland EJ-640 DECO.

Jean-Loup Duran, sales manager, Digital Media, Nonwoven at Ahlstrom-Munksjo, comments, “Now is the perfect time for a dedicated décor device. All major projections see décor as a strong market for the future, with 20% year-on-year growth predicted for digital wallpaper alone. The market will be delighted that a printer manufacturer sees décor as more than a new application for existing ink types and has developed a dedicated solution.”

The Roland EJ-640 DECO is available now across EMEA.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
