International Business Forms (IBF) has maintained its significant relationship with Monotech’s Jetsci inkjet solutions to install its seventh Jetsci M series inkjet system. The latest installation is again for confidential variable data printing online on another of its narrow web offset presses.

As a part of IBF’s expansion, the Gurgaon, Haryana headquartered company, has set up a second plant at Ghiloth in Rajasthan. The new plant is more extensive at 4,000 square meters and doubles its capacity from one million to two million documents or products daily. 

IBF is a pioneer in the confidential VDP printing domain specializing in online VDP on OMR answer booklets, admit cards, attendance sheets, courier dockets, and other education-related products. It uses hybrid narrow width web offset presses with variable data inkjet sur-printing for these secure and personalized education products.

Ajay Jain, the owner of International Business Forms, says, “It took us time to adopt the inline variable data printing system from Jetsci Global, but we have never looked back after the first installation. Now we have seven machines installed and running, and one more is in the course of manufacturing. This technology gave us value and growth and the supplier’s exceptional on-time support and services. We envision a future with all our offset machines equipped with Jetsci Global inkjet systems inline.”

Jimit Mittal, president Jetsci Global says, “We thank Ajay Jain for IBF’s continued trust in us as their inkjet printing partner. The Jetsci M series is our proven ideal VDP solution, which can be retrofitted to existing web offset and flexo machines with 100’s of installations across the globe.”

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.
