15-Jul-2014 Body Of Work Wins Coveted International Awards
Body Of Work Wins Coveted International Awards For Third Successive Year
Sydney, Australia, July 15, 2014 -The Printing Industries of America recently announced that Australian design house, Body of Work, headed up by internationally acclaimed photographer Bob Armstrong, has been awarded a record 17 "Benny" awards in the 2014 competition.
The American Premier Print Awards, which were established 65 years ago, are the industry's premium international award attracting the best- of-breed work from around the world. The Benny has become a universally recognised symbol for excellence within the printing industry.
Body of Work has now accumulated 31 Benny's in the last three years including two successive awards for "Best of Show" from almost 4,000 international entries. The "Best of Show" award for 2014 will be decided at the formal presentation in Chicago in September. This year all 42 Body of Work entries won awards (17 First, 14 second, 11 third).
Many of Armstrong's Benny Award-winning works, including the 2013 Best in Show Calendar, the Art Prints, and Self-Promotion Book Cover, were printed on a Roland VersaUV® LEJ-640 UV-LED wide format printer - a device the photographer relies on to produce flawless one-offs of original masterpieces from his renowned "Body of Work" collection. Incredible precision, exceptional detail and vibrant colour are essential elements for each of Armstrong's prints, which sell for $25,000 and up. And, according to Armstrong, the LEJ-640 delivers on all of these fronts. "When we started Body of Work, our goal was to produce the best printed product in the world," said Armstrong. "In order to accomplish that, I knew that we would need a large-format printer capable of replicating all of the unique qualities, colours and subtleties of my original photos. The LEJ-640 has been able to do all that...and more."
Armstrong's Body of Work is the product of collective talent combined with state-of-the-art technologies, including the innovative features and capabilities of Roland's advanced LEJ-640 printer. Working closely with the team at Roland DG Australia, Armstrong set out to achieve his goals and was able to explore and push the creative boundaries of wide format printing. Armstrong is quick to point out that this collaborative effort has produced extraordinary results, setting a "new benchmark for the development and application of original creative directions in communication strategy, design and photography, as well the establishment of new frontiers in print."
The prints offered within Armstrong's Body of Work Casino Collection, many of which feature top models from around the world, feature stunning UV-printed effects and unique, tactile-contoured finishes made possible with VersaUV technology.

02-Jul-2014 The new VersaEXPRESS RF-640 Wide Format Printer
Roland Introduces the New VersaEXPRESS 64-inch Printer, Designed for High-Speed Production and Superior Print Quality, All at a Smart Price
Sydney, Australia, July 2, 2014 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, has introduced the new 64-inch VersaEXPRESS RF-640, a high-speed production printer that delivers outstanding print quality at an affordable price point.
"The new VersaEXPRESS printer line was designed to meet the demands of the competitive global marketplace by providing unmatched performance and value at a low price," said John Wall, Roland DG Australia President & Director. "Sign shops and print service providers worldwide, and especially in emerging countries, require affordable volume production solutions that will help them increase their productivity and profits. Offering high-speed printing, superior image quality, competitively low running costs and ease of use, the RF-640 is the ideal production tool for many shops."
The RF-640 features Roland's advanced print control technology for quality imaging and colour consistency. It is supported by a robust take-up system as well, which stabilises production at print speeds up to 48.5m2/h, with real, day to day production speeds of 13-18m2/h. Equipped with the new Roland Ink Switching System, the RF-640 further increases productivity by supporting unattended continuous printing. This unique system allows users to load a backup cartridge that automatically discharges ink to the printer when the primary cartridge is empty.
Other advanced features include an industrial high-performance print head, GREENGUARD Gold certified, low-VOC ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks, and new optimised profiles which together deliver vivid, rich colors at an ink savings of up to 20%*1 when compared to previous models. Easy to operate, the RF-640 features the new Roland Printer Assist*2 system, which allows you to manage printer functions remotely from the printer. With this intuitive new app, you can also monitor the printer status and manage jobs comfortably from your iPad*3 for maximum convenience and efficiency. A redesigned front-loading ink cartridge unit provides easy access to cartridges while minimising the printer's footprint. Other key features include media loading levers positioned in both the front and back, and special media brackets that support even the heaviest media rolls as they are loaded into place.
Roland DG recently put the VersaEXPRESS RF-640 into a busy print business for two weeks. Read what Grange Graphics thought of the experience.
