Roland DG announced two new partnerships with R A Smart and i-Sub on 1 June, that sees both  digital print suppliers add Roland DG’s newest dye-sublimation transfer machine, the Texart XT-640, to their ranges.

“Being recognised as a Roland DG Authorised Dealer will give us a competitive edge in a saturated market as the best supplier for sublimation purposes in the local area,” said Magnus Mighall, managing director of Macclesfield-based R A Smart. The company, which operates a large digital print facility, has a long history of providing machinery to the fashion and home furnishing sectors.

John Purse, director of i-Sub, commented: “Advances in the sublimation industry have meant that customers are constantly looking for the most advanced machinery on the market to provide their customers with the best possible products and stay ahead of the competition.” i-Sub believes that the Texart XT-640 will attract both new and experienced textile professionals to its showroom.

Darren Penny, head of sales at Roland DG, said: “The sublimation market is growing at a rapid pace and ensuring that our dye-sublimation machines are accessible through renowned dealers like R A Smart and i-Sub is key to remaining the number one choice in the creative market.

R A Smart is a leading supplier of digital print systems and we couldn’t be more pleased to see a Roland DG machine in their showroom. Likewise, i-Sub is a well-loved textile suppler with vast knowledge of the textile industry, and we are thrilled to have them on board as a Roland DG authorised dealer.”
