Roland BN-20

The Roland BN20 is a 20” print and cut machine that can make anything from full colors stickers and decals to custom t-shirt and more.

And it does that by being both a full color printer AND a standard vinyl cutter.

Giving the BN20 some impressive capabilities I-want-to-start-a-business capabilities.

Roland BN20 Printer Cutter

A printer cutter or print and cut machine looks like a standard vinyl cutter that you might use just for heat transfer vinyl (HTV) or sign vinyl.

Standard vinyl cutters allow you to cut out heat transfers of a single-color material.

For example, you need to put the last name to customize a football jersey you might choose a roll of white vinyl to cut out that one color. Then heat press it onto the jersey.

Or you could be creating a multi-color design like the one shown, but each single-color layer is done separately and combined on the shirt. (in the case of HTV)

Print and Cut Machine Difference

When you look at the BN-20 you can quickly see what sets it apart from a standard vinyl cutter though. Cartridges of ink!

Because the BN-20 is combination of that vinyl cutter AND a full color inkjet printer. You simply load your “cutter” with one of several kinds of printable vinyl instead of standard HTV.

What you can make is really limited only by your imagination!

Software and Printing

Roland VersaWorks RIP software comes with every print-cut machine. It controls everything about the machine, allowing you to efficiently prepare artwork for both print & cut functions with ease.

VersaWorks is a powerful, but simple to use application that works hand in hand with many popular vector graphics applications. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Create your graphic

You can either create something yourself in applications like CorelDraw, or you can work with a company like to have them created for you. If you’re not a graphic artist, you may want to start ordering custom art first as you develop your own skills.

Step 2: Import into VersaWorks

It’s here that you will choose the kind of media you’re working with, like window film or sticker vinyl, and how many copies of the design you would like to print. You CAN do much more in VersaWorks, but those are the basics.

Step 3: Send to the printer cutter.

If you run a retail business where customers can see the BN20 print and cut, this will be a conversation stopper. People love to watch it print!
