Demonstrating superior creativity, design work and craftsmanship, two Roland businesses took top honors in the 2012 Golden Image Awards held at the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas.
In the “Building Graphics - Digital Entries” category, Gamut Media of Brea, Calif. won the gold ribbon for “Saladish,” a bold, colorful restaurant interior décor and branding campaign that included floor-to-ceiling wall wraps, POP displays and other graphics produced using the company’s VersaCAMM inkjet printer/cutter.
In the “Unique Applications - Digital Entries” category, Build A Birdhouse of East Whitby, Ontario, Canada, was awarded the gold ribbon for “Creative Birdhouses,” a whimsical collection of custom birdhouses decorated in digitally printed vinyl graphics, also created on a Roland VersaCAMM.
Congratulations to you both!
2012 Roland Race Experience Challenge
Mark Caron of MHC Sign and Design won the 2012 Roland Race Experience Challenge grand prize, a free VIP trip to top motorsports locales and events in the Charlotte area, complete with a “backstage” tour of Richard Childress Racing
Mark earned top honors for his Roland Race Experience Challenge entry, a testimonial on Roland digital printing equipment which was judged “most compelling” from all other contest entries submitted at the Roland Restyling “Born to Wrap” Facebook page (www.facebook.com/restyling).
He wrote, “Since we bought our Roland printer, our business has tripled. The inks are the most vibrant, durable and longest lasting, and when we compare our wrapped vehicles with our competitors’ wraps, there is a drastic difference. You can tell that Roland inks are far superior! Roland stands behind their product with top notch customer service technicians and an excellent warranty. The print/cut feature saves us shop space and allows us to focus on our next design while the machine is doing its job flawlessly. Roland . . . the ONLY choice in the wrap industry.”
Well said, Mark!
2012 T-Shirtforums.com Annual Design Contest
Members of T-Shirtforums.com voted KA Grafix of Fredericksburg, Va., grand prize winner in this year’s social media-themed design contest, an accolade that won the firm a new Roland VersaStudio BN-20, complete with a supply of inks and media.
The winning design, ‘Battle of the Giants,’ depicts the two top social media companies battling it out in a comical, yet intriguing image. The graphic artfully features Facebook as an open book, with its pages fanned out to reveal a woman’s face. While this image clearly dominates the design, it appears to be under attack by a storm of blue feathers representing the rise of Twitter.
With more than 170,000 members, T-ShirtForums.com is the industry’s largest online community of T-shirt designers, printers, manufacturers and entrepreneurs. Each year, the forum sponsors a themed T-shirt design contest on its website at www.t-shirtforums.com.
