A Huge Stroke Of Luck
As you probably already know, central to our work here at Aura are our 3 Roland printers, used for vinyl banner work. We have 3 Roland machines in-house. The longest standing is the VS640, which we have had for around 5 years now. This is great for printing both vinyl banners and stickers and copes well with unusual shape work.
The XF640; or ‘BEAST’ as it is known in the trade is superfast, but just for standard shaped vinyl. We invested in this machine around 3 years ago, to deal with the vast majority of vinyl banner orders we get; those that meet standard sizes. This is running all day, as you can imagine and it spits banner out by the metre, hence the name ‘BEAST’.
The final one is the AJ1000, a wide format machine that proves its worth when orders for extra large banners come in.
Bring On The Roland Piano!
By an amazing stroke of luck, one of our owners, Emma Smith, has recently won an online competition, where the prize was a Roland LX-17 Electric Piano, signed by Ed Sheeran and Ashton Miranda!
The piano was the very one used for Ed Sheeran’s live performance at the 2018 Brit Awards. Ed and Ashton signed the piano after the performance.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to win this amazing piano. Myself and Liam were actually looking into purchasing an electric piano recently, but nothing as special as this one! We both used to play and hoped to start again". "Our daughter wants to start lessons too, so this is just brilliant" Emma Smith, Director.
Two very different types of Roland technology, both delivered by the same Roland courier too! This beautiful piece can now be cherished for years to come. Many thanks to Roland for picking us as the winners and their continued support on our printers over the years!
