Monotech Systems has recently installed Ricoh Pro 8300S monochrome digital printing production press at Jaipur based digi-commerce printer, Titu Thesis Center. The press is already in production mode and has delivered more than 3 lakh copies.

“We are already a Ricoh fan and have two Ricoh 8100 monochrome digital production presses with complete finishing line, Ricoh 9100 and Ricoh 7100 digital print production presses. The purchase of Ricoh Pro 8300 is an addition to the entire arsenal for more production. Our evaluation of buying a new press was under process and the entry of Ricoh again with Monotech Systems excited us to go for it. We already cherish an old relationship with Monotech Systems and they have supplied Dumor Slit Cut Creaser and Book Binding machine to us. The after-sales support from them is the best,” said Mukesh Tanwani, owner, Titu Thesis Center.

Titu Thesis Centre was started 30 years ago. Emerging from a very small platform, the motto was to cater to all the printing requirements of the customers. Taking the path ahead, over the past few years the company kept on working towards technical up-gradation and advancement. Today, it is one of the largest document centers of the country having multiple centers and an exclusive print outlet in Jaipur. The service offered ranges from Thesis compilation, packaging, digital printing, and wedding albums to name a few. The company has a philosophy of being quality conscious and delivering premium print services to its customers.

Ricoh Pro 8300S Series are high-end mono sheetfed production printers that are claimed to deliver outstanding uptime performance to help printers stay ahead of the competition. Offering enhanced finishing options, they are said to provide versatile and efficient printing capabilities as well as superb print quality. Featuring a compact footprint, the system offers a user-friendly interface to make printing, copying, and scanning documents fast and hassle-free for novice users.


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.
