Allahabad-based Classic Printers has installed Canon’s first 100 ppm color digital press—the imagePRESS C10000VP. The production print facility was inaugurated by Puneet Datta, director, Canon India. Canon imagePress C10000VP since its launch has been a differentiator in the digital press segment, addressing the evolving demands of the professional printing space. Post installing the Canon imagePRESS C10000VP, customers across the country have witnessed close to 40% rise in their revenues, which proves the profitable business model this press brings to the printers.

Speaking about the recent installation, Joginder Gupta, owner, Classic Printers said, “We started as a small unit almost ten years back and over the years, with the support of partners like Canon, we have developed in the space of print, service and design. We are a professionally run firm, dedicated to delivering quality work on a broad range of communication. With our in-house professional photography and graphic designing department, we provide economical and high-quality prints. Canon has played an imperative role in contributing towards our growth, and we are confident that imagePRESS C10000VP with its state-of-the-art technology will further strengthen our endeavor of increased and effective customer outreach.”

The imagePRESS C10000VP comes with 2400 x 2440 dpi resolution, a choice of new front-end controllers based on the EFI Fiery FS200 Pro Platform, which enables the product to streamline the workflow, and media handling capabilities from 60 gsm to 350 gsm. Engineered to deliver production printing excellence for the business advantage of its users, it is designed to meet the increasing demand from both commercial and in-house print service providers (PSPs) for higher production volumes without compromising on quality. It can help commercial printers, in-plants, production hubs, direct mail and transaction print service providers to produce a broader range of applications in shorter turnaround times. With its high-quality printing, uniform color and efficiency, it has garnered significant attention in the Indian print market in less than a year’s time, thereby setting a benchmark in the digital color printing segment.

The imagePRESS C10000VP Series can deliver outstanding customer output while also benefitting from impressive productivity and reliability. It features intuitive operation and can help maximize uptime with automated calibration. As a future-ready printer, manufactured to cater to the dynamic needs of the market, the imagePRESS C10000VP color digital press is a landmark product in the professional print segment.

Sharing his thoughts on the second installation of the digital press in Uttar Pradesh, Puneet Datta, director – Professional Printing Products (PPP), Canon India said, “Markets are in the process of transition from print-first to digital-first, and hence the future of paper and print will be determined by how printing organizations reinvent themselves in the digital-first universe. Non-metro cities have been witnessing a high growth in adoption of technologies and even printers want to embrace the latest technologies available in the marketplace; Canon is the first choice for such printers. As the ‘best in class,’ the imagePRESS C10000VP color digital press has been instrumental in allowing our customers to exploit the growth in the color production market while harnessing the tremendous growth and opportunities digital printing has to offer. Constantly evolving and innovating to stay ahead, Classic Printers is one such market leader that has elevated their services with this installation.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
