Roland DG has unveiled its new EJ-640 DECO printer which uses ecological water-based ink to digitally print interior décor applications.

The EJ-640 DECO can produce customised wallpaper, lampshades, blinds, posters, exhibition graphics and outdoor promotions. It is intended to meet the needs of the ever-growing consumer appetite for eco-friendly products and designs that stand out from the crowd.

‘With low production costs and impressive versatility, the EJ-640 DECO delivers exceptional quality and durable print on a range of materials. It’s the printer the industry has been waiting for,’ said Paul Willems, director of business development and product management at Roland DG EMEA.

Rachael Taylor, surface pattern designer, creative stylist and co-founder of Make it in Design, added, ‘The EJ-640 DECO printer is perfect for bespoke wallpapers – a great way to showcase my own designs. Roland DG has really understood what designers and consumers want from décor. I especially love the more natural look of the prints alongside its environmentally friendly credentials. I can’t wait to see more of my designs printed on the EJ-640 DECO.’

The high-density water-based inks are compatible with a wide range of media including coated, uncoated, PVC free and even standard wallpaper from sustainable sources.
