Hamamatsu, Japan, September 12, 2007 Roland DG Corporation today announced the new EGX-350 desktop engraver, a complete, compact professional engraving solution including new Roland EngraveStudio software.

The EGX-350 quickly engraves a wide variety of materials to create beautiful indoor and outdoor custom signs, treasured mementos, and personalized gifts, awards, promotional items and apparel.
