Patel, managing director and chief executive officer, Arrow Digital adds, that this new expansion enhances our portfolio of roll-to-roll Printers. The Canon Colorado is an all-rounder impressive performer and standout choice for virtually all wide-format printing applications. It proved to be a true workhorse, demonstrating high speeds in all test scenarios and is found to be three times faster than the competitive average across each quality mode tested. In addition to its speed, the printer’s automatic maintenance, user-replaceable components and on-the-fly ink replacement features were all recognized as contributing factors to its increased uptime and faster turnarounds.

The Canon’s FLXfinish curing technology makes it easy to produce both gloss and matte finishes without the need to change inks or media. The FLXfinish also enhances the printer’s handling of porous materials such as soft signage and uncoated media because its UVgel technology ensures that each ink droplet is immediately fixed on the media, allowing for highly controlled dot gain and more precise image quality.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
