Following Labelexpo in Brussels, Venkataramana Graphics based in Hyderabad has signed up to sell Vision Tech’s digital spot UV and 3D foil system in India. The Korean manufactured digital enhancement machine can create spot UV and 3D foil effects similar to other well-known brands at a very competitive price.

Hyderabad has become one of the leading printing and packaging centers in the country with a strong cluster of major commercial, signage, carton, label and flexible packaging printers. In each of these segments, Hyderabad has produced a leader in terms of quality and scale. The ancillary equipment, trade houses for plates and consumable suppliers of Hyderabad have also grown over the years and are amongst the best because they are dealing with the most innovative, fastest growing and most decisive printers in the country.

Venkataramana Graphics is an engineering-based supplier of new Amsky CtPs and Jwei digital sample makers, Epson and JHF wide format inkjet printers, the unique and compact Unibind digital foiling printer and now the Vision Tech digital spot UV and 3D foil printer. The company is owned and managed by BVK Prasad, who was earlier employed as a senior engineer by the company. Prasad purchased the company from its former owner four years ago and has grown it enormously in terms of products, services and turnover. He has developed the engineering and service focus of the company, which now has 16 engineers. In addition, in September this year, Prasad opened an office in Kochi. 

The company is a supplier of wide format inkjet signage printers and consumables from Epson and JHF. It also supplies refurbished CtPs from a variety of manufacturers including BasysPrint and Fujifilm. Because of Prasad’s own extensive hands-on experience as a CtP engineer, the company has over 60 CtP customers around the country and with all its products and services is a supplier to over 100 companies. Specializing in CtCP, the company achieved a significant milestone with the installation in August of the Amsky VLF CtCP to Deepti Printers in Hyderabad. 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
