Surat-based A Square Digital Press has invested in a Ricoh Pro C9200 supplied by Monotech Systems, a leading machine manufacturer and one-stop solution provider for the printing and packaging industry. The investment is expected to lift the company’s overall competency in photo album printing, and enhance the quality of print and volumes. 

Since its establishment in the year 2016, A Square Digital Press is a well-known commercial printer in Surat. A mainstay of the company’s business revolves around photo album printing. Anil Agola, the proprietor of A Square Digital Press, says the photo album printing market in India is growing fast. “We are tapping this rapidly expanding market by using our new Ricoh PRO C9200 digital production press from Monotech Systems,” he says.

The installation of the Ricoh Pro C9200 color digital press has enabled A Square Digital to print highly textured photos and opened up many other possibilities in premium-quality graphic images. The press is compatible with a wide range of media types, which include metallic, super gloss, high-bulk media, etc., up to 470 gsm at a speed of 115 pages per minute (ppm). 

Agola said, “Apart from the highly textured and sharp graphic prints, our new Ricoh digital press is perfectly designed for increasing print volumes with speed and reliability. We are fully empowered to take on more high-volume works to increase our overall production volume with this cut-sheet digital press.” 

A Square Digital Press boasts a vast clientele from a vast cross-section of diverse communities and different walks of life. “Wedding photo albums that we produce always feature special effects and graphic designs. This would have been a big challenge if we don’t have the right machines, materials, and manpower,” says Agola. They also print splendid photo books, coffee table books, and many such products and items for big corporate clients and leading retail brands from different market clusters. 

A team of 35 experienced printing and graphic designing professionals are the driving force of A Square Digital Press. “We would like to acknowledge Monotech Systems for their support and machines,” Agola said.  

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.
