And the winner is... Personalised trophies, awards and gifts with Roland

Trophies and awards are the original personalised item. As recognition for success or achievement, these objects are designed to be unique for each recipient, to be put proudly on display and to last a lifetime.

The awards market is therefore a lucrative one for display producers, and easy to access thanks to Roland's wide range of compatible technologies. Choose from engravers, impact printers, dye sublimation printers and direct-to-surface UV printers to find the right system for your business.

Create a message to last a lifetime with an engraving machine

Roland engraving machines are incredibly versatile in terms of materials, able to engrave onto metals, acrylics, woods, laminates and more. This allows you to add unique messages and designs to popular items like trophies, medals, badges and plaques, each created to last forever.

The Roland EGX series of rotary engravers ranges from cost-effective desktop models that are perfect for a small workshop, all the way up to professional high-speed engravers for busy production environments. All deliver precise results onto a variety of materials enabling you to get creative.
