Roland DGA, a top provider of wide-format printers and printer/cutters for vehicle wrap applications, is also leading the way in wrap education and instruction. While Roland has been offering its hands-on Born-to-Wrap workshops for over 12 years, the expanded 2019 schedule will be its most extensive to date, with classes offered in more locations from coast to coast.
This year, in addition to its comprehensive two-day “Basics and Beyond” wrap workshops, Roland DGA will also be offering specialized 4-hour “Skills Training” and free 3-hour “Inside the Wrap Shop” classes, to be held in conjunction with many of The NBM Shows taking place nationwide in 2019. In all, a total of 26 Born-to-Wrap classes will be conducted – all led by the experts from Louisville, Kentucky-based Digital EFX Wraps, renowned for their vehicle wrap installation and business management instruction.
Partnering with Roland DGA to make the 2019 Born-to-Wrap workshops and classes even more successful are leading media manufacturers – Arlon, Avery Dennison, Orafol, and 3M. In addition to supplying wrap film and laminate for use in the classes, these companies will also be providing free wrap media kits to those who attend a Born-to-Wrap “Basics and Beyond” or “Skills Training” workshop.
All of Roland DGA’s Born-to-Wrap workshops and classes will be led by the experts from Louisville, Kentucky-based Digital EFX Wraps, renowned for their vehicle wrap installation and business management skills. The two-day Basics and Beyond workshops, designed for new wrap business owners and installers, provide a thorough overview of the vehicle wrap process and running a successful wrap shop. Attendees will also receive useful pointers for getting the most out of their wide-format digital printing equipment for vehicle wrap and graphics applications.
For those on a tighter schedule, the shorter Skills Training and Inside the Wrap Shop classes also provide valuable instruction. The half-day Skills Training class is centered around wrap installation with hands-on instruction in a simulated shop environment, while the free 3-hour, business-oriented Inside the Wrap Shop sessions focus on establishing and operating a successful wrap operation.
“We’re very excited about our expanded 2019 Born-to-Wrap workshops schedule for 2019, which offers many different instructional opportunities in locations across the country,” said Daniel Valade, Roland DGA Product Manager, Color Products and Cutters. “The new half-day classes are the perfect complement to our always popular two-day workshops, especially for those already planning to attend The NBM Shows being held in those cities.”
