Epson, one of the leaders in digital imaging and printing solutions announced the launch of Epson SL-D830, a compact, commercial photo printer that supports a wide range of printing formats. Epson SL-D830 has been developed for photo studios, professional event photographers and others who want to expand their printing business, with a wider range of services for their customers. It is ideal for small photo studios, minilabs, copy shops and self-service kiosks that intend to provide high-quality photo prints. It is also built keeping in mind businesses that would like to print high-quality print jobs, on-demand, on a wide range of media and formats.

The Epson SL-D830’s strength lies in its versatility with different kinds of media and its ability to print in different sizes seamlessly.  It can produce a wide range of materials including consumer and professional photo images, photo books, wedding albums, business cards, greeting cards, invitations, awards, menus, order forms, cards, and calendars. This provides a tremendous opportunity for conventional photo studios to expand their offering and their business.  The printer supports glossy, luster and paper-based matte and in roll widths that range from 89mm to 210mm and has a length of 50mm to 1000mm. This is further complemented by an impressive print speed of 360 (15 x 10cm) photos per hour (PPH) and high print quality, with a wide color gamut, deep blacks, and superior gloss level. Small in size, big on quality the SL-D830 takes little space of 460*430*354mm and due to its compact size, it easily fits in most of the congested spaces and even on a tabletop.

To ensure that SL-D30 brings in the next level productivity, design changes were incorporated in the predecessor model to enable improved efficiency. The cost-effectiveness of the printer is enhanced by its long service intervals and fewer maintenance requirements, which boosts productivity and ensures that customers are offered improved consistency and reliable service. This improved cost efficiency makes the SL-D830 the ideal choice as a photo printing solution.

In terms of connectivity, with Epson’s proprietary SureLab OrderController software, customers can easily manage print jobs and correct minor image flaws. When paired with the SureLab LayoutManager (optional add-on), the printer’s capabilities can be utilized to the maximum. Epson OrderController also supports automated order input for the in-store kiosk.

According to Vasudevan L K, general manager – LFP/IE, Epson India, ‘’After the success of SureLab SL-D700 and based on customer demands, we have launched SureLab SL-D830. This new compact and durable commercial printer is an addition to our SureLab range and is built for speed, flexibility, and high-quality commercial photo printing, SureLab D830 is highly suitable for photo studios and labs. It can be used to produce not just conventional photos but photo books, wedding albums, business cards, greeting cards, invitations, awards, menus, order forms, cards, and calendars and much more. This makes it a great choice for ambitious studio owners looking to take their business to the next level.’’

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.
