Best Offset of Jodhpur, a well-known commercial printer of Rajasthan, has upgraded its facility with the addition of a new Ricoh Pro C7200X digital press from Monotech Systems, a machine manufacturer and a solution provider for the printing and packaging industry. Best Offset already has an advanced production facility equipped with a complete line of pre-press, press, and post-press machines and equipment.

Launched in 2016, Best Offset is known for being a provider of complete printing solutions under one roof. The pre-press portfolio of the company consists of a BasysPrint CtP digital imager for conventional offset plates and a Fuji Violet CtP plate machine. The line of offset presses in the facility includes Komori Lithrone 540, Heidelberg MOV, RMGT-760, and RYOBI 3304 HA. The post-press division is equipped with a range of advanced finishing equipment, folding machines and perfect binders.

“With this versatile Ricoh digital production press, we are prepared to exploit the advanced features and competency of the machine to produce unconventional graphics that stand out amid the crowd,” said Rehan Khan, director, Best Offset.

“Our facility is equipped with almost all machines and presses for offset, label and large-format printing. The AstroJet digital large-format printer in the portfolio is for vinyl printing for signage and display graphic applications as well as T-shirt and other garment prints. In addition to our capability to produce a whole gamut of applications, our newly adopted Ricoh Pro C7200X has fueled us to boost the digital printing power.”

The Ricoh Pro C7200X is a highly versatile digital press with a five-color printing capacity, Khan says, “This new digital press is a highly stable machine for premium quality print production at high speed. It can run at a speed of up to 85 ppm and can print on a variety of substrates up to 360 gsm with the segment’s highest resolution of 2400 4800 dpi.” He says the digital press has enhanced the print quality and creative art elements in Best Offset’s marketing materials such as brochures, business cards, flyers and leaflets, and so on. 

With a team of 55 highly experienced printing and graphic designing professionals, Best Offset maintains the highest standards of printing, which combines affordability and quality in equal measures. “We do our best to satisfy our customers, who are predominantly from Rajasthan, and they are a mixed bag containing almost everyone. The list consists of local publishers of magazines such as My Home Interior & Design,” Khan says. Best Offset can be profiled as a printer of journals, notebooks, calendars, certificates, etc. 

“If you can think it, we can ink it,” says Khan. This new press has empowered them to take up new commercial printing projects with a special color gamut and on a variety of substrates. Khan praised Monotech Systems for its support and guidance.

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.
