Established in 2018, Lisco, based in Ahmedabad, is a newish venture of Scorpio Techburst. However, its founder and managing director Yatinsingh Vaghela has more than 15 years of experience in manufacturing and supplying solvent-based large format digital printers. As a digital print and technology proponent, Lisco supplies a wide range of applications, consumables, accessories, and linked technologies including Gongzheng’s latest technology and output equipment. It is an authorized distributor of Gongzheng solvent printers, eco-solvent printers, UV flatbed printers, UV roll to roll printers, UV hybrid printers, spare parts, print heads, and inks. 


On the show floor at Media Expo 2021 at Greater Noida, Lisco showcased six Gongzheng high-speed eco-solvent printer models, technology-driven indoor and outdoor signage machines, and digital printers for entry and industrial levels. Vaghela said, “The Media Expo is always a great place to exhibit and meet industry peers and end-users. Media Expo is a fantastic expo that is #1 in the signage industry.”

Among the inkjet printers shown, there was one device for outdoor printing with a maximum speed of 3,500 square feet an hour. Among the UV printers shown, there was one with a top speed of 1,200 square feet per hour. The printheads used in the Gongzheng inkjet printers are sourced from Starfire, Polaris, and Panasonic. With the environment and consumer safety in mind, Lisco supplies printers that use eco-solvent inks, and it claims that even its UV inks used primarily for in-shop are eco-friendly.


On the company’s expansion plans Vaghela said, “We are planning to add textile printing machines, direct-to-garment printing solutions so that a different type of material range should also be there for Lisco and its potential customers.”

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.
