Mumbai-based RK Offset is a digital textile printer, which recently installed Konica Minolta’s C12000 press at its facility to boost its production capacity. The Goregaon-based provider established its business 12 years ago and has been in trade with Konica Minolta ever since, acquiring several other presses from the manufacturer. The provider gradually went on to become an in-house, one-stop solution for all textile printing requirements.

RK Offset has been a veteran user of Konica Minolta’s digital presses, though the company’s proprietor Dinesh Satra, owner of RK Offset says many a time, he did consider products from other manufacturers, “The deal kept falling short. Not many manufacturers can provide after-sale service as quickly as Konica Minolta does. Its machines accommodate all our printing necessities efficiently,” he said.

The digital textile printing industry has seen decent growth in recent years and competition has grown accordingly. “I think it’s all in the name,” Satra said. “All our clients are repeat customers and we get huge orders. Businesses can’t exist without competition but I think of it as a growth opportunity. If my competition is doing something good, I have to do it better and that is the core of growth in my opinion.”

The 2024 edition of the Pamex printing show in Mumbai – which covers labels, cartons, flexible packaging, and corrugation – will extend its focus on textile printing and the soft signage industry. The event, organized by the All India Federation of Master Printers in association with Print-Packaging.Com, will be held from 6-9 February 2024 in Mumbai.

The Indian Printing Industry has witnessed increasing cross-segment migration, especially after the pandemic. The changing dynamics of the industry were highlighted at Pamex 2023, which dedicated an exclusive hall to labels and flexible packaging. This year’s theme was ‘Convergence in Print’.

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.
