Bengaluru-based Usha Prints has booked a Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 digital label printing press. The deal was announced on the third day of Pamex 2023 in Mumbai.

Usha Prints is a premier offset and digital print service provider with multiple outlets across three cities of Karnataka. It has nine branches in Bengaluru, two in Mysuru, and one branch in Tumkur. It has four offset presses: three Komori and one Heidelberg.

On the digital side, it has 12 Konica Minolta digital presses. The company has a diverse range of clients, including small businesses, large corporations, and individuals.

Usha Prints offers a wide range of printing solutions, including brochures, flyers, business cards, banners, and other marketing materials.

We have ventured into label printing as a new line of business. The demand for short-run label printing is growing and we want to be in this space. The new Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 digital label printing press will be placed in Bengaluru,” says B.H. Srinivas, owner of Usha Prints.

The AccurioLabel 230 is the third re-design of Konica Minolta’s toner-based printers. It has a printing width of 250 to 330 mm and can handle substrates from 81 to 256 gsm.

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.
