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.”

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.
