Mumbai-based Navneet Education recently launched an A5 size notebook with an actual denim jeans styled cover under its Youva brand. The notebook comes in classic blue denim and features a sleek pocket on the cover. The idea behind the design, according to the company, is that young people are constantly looking for new-age and trendy stationery.

Youva Jeans is an extremely innovative product developed by our product development team, especially for college students and young office goers,” says Abhijit Sanyal who is the chief strategy officer and official spokesperson for Youva stationery. He adds, “We are expecting it to be used not just for self-consumption but also as a cool gifting option.”

Launched in 2016, Youva is a dynamic brand that has always kept in mind the youth of India. It is a stationery brand for paper and non-paper stationery. According to Navneet, notebooks are an indispensable part of education and Youva tries to make notebooks as interesting as possible for young minds with contemporary theme-based cover designs. 

Youva brings to the market stationery such as notebooks, long books, drawing books, journals, craft papers and canvas boards. The non-paper range includes pencils, crayons, colour pencils, paint brushes, geometry boxes, poster colours, glue, and scissors for kids.

Focus on creativity and uniqueness

Due to the unique style of the product, the research and development team at the company and product manager devised a customized process flow which enabled fabric to be used for case binding without fear of shrinkage or corner damage.

The most important aspect was the styling of the book. The thick yellow weave visible on the outer edge as well as on the pocket gave the overall product a much-needed sturdy build as well as a cool look, says Sanyal.

Talking about the initial response to the product, Sanyal says that the feedback from the distributors has been extremely favourable. “The product was launched about a month ago and we have got a tremendous response. The retailers have appreciated the design and are displaying the products prominently on their shelves,” he says.

Sanyal said that Navneet is working on more innovative and unique products under the Youva brand. “Youva is a brand that promotes creativity. We have brought very innovative products under this brand and we will continue to introduce more such products. This inspires our customers to be creative as well,” he says.

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.
