Print and Cut right from your desktop with Roland DG's BN-20.


The Roland DG BN-20 printer packs everything into one, powerful, profit-producing package. With award-winning eco-solvent inks including metallic and white options, a range of material compatibility and integrated contour cutting, the BN-20 is easily the most versatile print device in its class. The BN-20 is perfect for creating T-shirt graphics, poster prints, stickers and decals – all from the comfort of your desktop.



Achieve So Much More


Not only does the BN-20 desktop inkjet printer cutter open up a world of graphics possibilities, but it does it with the highest level of quality. Featuring a piezo inkjet print head that prints up to 1440 dpi, the BN-20 delivers exceptional quality prints with smoother gradations, richer density and deeper image saturation for photographic and vector output.


Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow


VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting its printed output and eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics. For laminated graphics, our Quadralign® four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and reload them for cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.


Distinguishing Features


  • Compact 20-inch inkjet with integrated printing and contour cutting
  • A versatile machine for printing T-shirt graphics, decals, stickers, signs, posters and more
  • Ink options include CMMYK, CMYK+White and CMYK+Metallic Silver
    *Roland DG recommends only using 220ml Cartridges with the BN-20
  • Legendary Roland reliability for continuous, economical production


No Roland DG Printer Has Even Been Easier to Use


All functionality of the BN-20 is handled through included software which controls basic machine functions, status and calibrations. An intuitive device, the BN-20 simplifies print production and helps users easily manage output and costs by monitoring replacement of consumable parts like wipers and contour cutting blades.
