They are very easy to get along with and quick to offer assistance whenever we might need it. Their industry-leading printing machines have resulted in a noticeable jump in quality in the decals and graphics we produce. More than that, the Roland DG family is made up of very friendly and enthusiastic people who are the reason why they are more than just another supplier.”
