iCards Printers in Hyderabad has installed the 80 ppm Canon imagePRESS C8000VP. Speaking at the inauguration of the new machine, Mani Varghese the managing director of iCards said, “Canon is a reputed brand in the country, known for its strides in innovation in the professional printing space. With the imagePRESS C700, we were able to win the trust of our customers and grow our business exponentially. Being associated with the brand for over 4 years now, we are proud to add the imagePRESS C8000VP to our Canon portfolio today . . . . the installation is in line with our vision to expand our services and cater to a larger client base, strengthening our foothold in the region.”

iCards is a well-known establishment in Telangana and a one-stop destination servicing customers across the state of Hyderabad. Having established a firm foothold in the industry, they are known for its premium services catering to varied requirements of customers. The new digital press was inaugurated in the presence of Puneet Datta, director of Professional Printing Products at Canon India.

The imagePRESS C8000VP series has more than 75 installations since its launch in the country.

Canon India’s Datta, said, “At Canon, we are committed to lead by innovation and adapt newer technology at par with the ever changing requirements of our customers. Our flagship model, imagePRESS C8000VP echoes our efforts at revolutionizing the professional printing space and empowering small businesses in the country. Taking digital colour printing to the next level, we are happy to see the iPR C8000VP get its first footprint in Telangana, through iCards Printers. Our second association with iCards, is a testimony to the trust that has been instilled by our customers, which always drives us to do better. We are positive that the installation will prove to be an important milestone in their growth journey.”

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.
