Hall 9, Stand E 15-16

Anurag Poddar, director at Mohan Impressions

To meet printers, sublimation dealers, office rubber stamp dealers, small business owners, office stationery suppliers, and corporate gift suppliers, Mohan Impressions (PRESTO) will exhibit at Printpack India 2019 from 1-6 February 2019 at India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida.

Mohan Impressions, a Kolkata-based company, is specialized in sublimation gifts, laser engraving, 3D crystals and office rubber stamp solutions. The company will be showcasing its gift personalization machines and office rubber stamp making machines at the show. The company has a staff strength of over 150 persons and has a retail chain of over 150 stores across India in the franchise model.

The company will launch its new system to personalize cotton T-shirts using plotter and motmelt fabric vinyls along with its E Series range of office rubber stamps. PRESTO equipment are suitable for small businesses which can be installed in an office or at home office and run on a single phase. The investment being low, the entry barrier in the business is extremely easy to surmount and at the same time the return on investment is high.

Anurag Poddar of Mohan Impressions says, “Like all previous years, we expect quality footfall from across India and even overseas. We are confident of converting those footfall into good business for ourselves. Like any good trade show, we expect Printpack India 2019 to give us quality leads from across India and beyond. In addition to meeting new business prospects, this will be a great platform to meet existing customers from across the horizon.”

The company is expecting good bookings during the show.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
