Sagar Detroja and Sunil Patel started their first company, Shree Balaji Imaging, in June 2016. The same month, they decided to start another firm under the name Shivranjani Imaging. Operating in the textile and printing segments since its inception, Shivranjani Imaging recently forayed into the graphics industry for which it has invested in a Xerox Versant 3100.

Currently, the company caters to the textile, modelling agencies and graphics industries. The Xerox Versant 3100 machine was installed at their facility on 29 June 2017. High print quality, media gamut and ease of operation of the Xerox Versant 3100 digital press are some of the features that led Detroja and Patel to invest in the machine. The operators were given training on fiery server, stock library manager (SLM) along with other hardware and software functioning.

The company initially considered going for another brand but was quick to figure out that no one could match the print quality, media gamut, automation and operations of the Xerox Versant 3100 press. “The Xerox Versant 3100 has been extremely impressive. We are quite pleased with the color accuracy of the machine. We have been receiving desired outputs from the machine,” said Detroja. The company looks forward to cater to the entire country and expect a 25-30% growth. The current turnover of the company is Rs. 2.5 crore, which they aim to scale up to Rs. 3.3 crore annually.

At present, Shivranjani Imaging has two printing facilities spread across 1400 sq. ft. with a staff strength of 8-10 people. The Xerox Versant 3100 digital press comes with dynamic features. The machine runs at 100 ppm and is enabled with high capacity feeding, stacking and finishing.

“Currently, we are looking to cater to customers throughout India. We are also building a web-to-print website for catering to clients who want to order any kind of printed products online,” Detroja added.

According to him, the industry is price driven. In such a case, it is very important to reach out to direct customers. Patel feels that if direct customers are not targeted, it will be nearly impossible to achieve the desired profits.

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.
