Roland versacamm vp540 metallic will it run card?


Well-known member
Silly question but were just buying a Roland versacamm vp540 with the ecosol inks in and wondered if anyone had ever found a card 300 / 350gsm that will take an image from it? The reason being we want to use also for short run metallic wedding invites?

We were looking at these units and did many trials with Roland DG, they were very helpful.

The VersaLEC UV LED units will "just about print on anything". OK, not anything, however they are very flexible. When we did trials I am sure that we put similar weight thick card into them.

As for the solvent units...I believe that they have the same capabilities for handling thick media as the UV units - however, the media has to be compatible with the solvent inks. This is critical and a major caveat. Media can be treated/coated to make it work with the solvent printers.

EDIT: The VersaCAMM brochure states:

Maximum 1.0 mm (39 mil) with liner for printing
Maximum 0.4 mm (16 mil) with liner and 0.22mm (9mil) without liner for cutting
