“Known Designs, founded by Esther Keenan [pictured above] in 2021, has earned a reputation for bringing its customers' creative visions to life through easy, affordable, and personalised printing solutions,” said GJS. “With a commitment to crafting personalised clothing, decals, business merchandise, labels, and more, Known Designs had previously relied on the first-generation Roland DG BN-20 printer cutter as its production cornerstone.”

Keenan said: "We purchased the original BN-20 in July 2021 and expanded our operations to the point where a second printer became a necessity. I was exploring the possibility of adding another BN-20 when the BN2-20 was unveiled. The improved speed and functionality were irresistible, and we knew we had to invest in one immediately.”

Known Designs will use the new BN2-20A alongside its existing BN-20.

"Known Designs embodies the essence of easy, affordable, and customisable printing, and the BN2-20A encapsulates all these qualities in a single printer. Thanks to the seamless installation process, we were able to continue production right away,” Keenan said.

The Roland DG BN2 series printer cutter combines the capabilities of a high-quality printer with an advanced cutter, enhancing the production capabilities of a wide range of industries, including signage, labels, decals, vehicle graphics, apparel, and more.

“We've been extremely thankful to have been able to create a great working relationship with the team at GJS from the first time we made contact back in July 2021,” said Keenan. “Since then, the majority of our ongoing supplies come from them. When the BN2-20 was announced, it was an easy decision to buy straight from GJS, after experiencing such amazing customer service over the past two years.”

Greg Stone, managing director, GJS said: “The Roland DG BN-series is one of the most popular print solutions that we sell. The fact that we sold through our entire allocation of BN2-20’s within 12-hours of the official announcement demonstrates not only the popularity of the product, but also the trust that local printers have in the Roland DG and GJS brands.

“Based on the initial interest and feedback that we have had since the product launched on 7 September, we expect the new BN2 series to be just as popular, if not more so than the original."
