Each student brought an original design idea for printing on 3-dimensional objects, such as box covers, wood slabs and stretched canvases. All the students were excited to try the gloss feature that gives the design a clear embossed texture. The students also learned how to create cut lines used for cutting out the decals printed on a Roland VersaCaMM VS300i.
A few months ago, Central Lakes College, working with Tech Mobile, brought in the two UV printers, two vinyl printer/cutters and two laser etchers. Each of the machines will travel to local high schools to expand high school student’s knowledge of the process used for specialty printing in the graphic design industry for each piece of equipment.
Similar hands-on learning events are planned for other area high schools in the near future as well.
