• Small printer with great potential

    The VersaSTUDIO BN-20 is a compact and user-friendly device, in which you can load media of a maximum width of 51cm. In return for this small investment, you can have a wide range of applications for both indoor and outdoor use. A few examples are signage, stickers, labels, transfers for apparel, POP displays, window stickers, posters and many more.

    Printing and cutting in one

    The BN-20 printer has a cutting blade. This automatically cuts your prints. You can also use the BN-20 as a cutting plotter. Printing first is not required.

    Eco-solvent or water-based ink

    ECO-SOL MAX3 is the new generation of Roland DG's award-winning eco-solvent ink. The ink offers an overall better performance, with even faster drying times, bigger cartridges and a lower price per cc of ink. Of course, it also delivers the reliability, quality, consistency and durability that Roland ECO-SOL MAX is renowned for.
