Diva Digital Imaging in Ahmedabad is India’s inaugural owner of the Ricoh Pro C7500, which succeeds the Ricoh Pro C7200 and was recently introduced to India by Monotech Systems. The acquisition marks a step forward toward quality and innovation in digital printing for Diva Digital Imaging.

Diva Digital Imaging, spanning three generations of family-owned photo and photography businesses, has a legacy of transformation and adaptation. Nalin Lakhani, the proprietor, reflects, “Our journey from traditional roll film photography to contemporary digital printing epitomizes our evolution. While photography remains integral, adding the Ricoh Pro C7500 heralds our expansion into diverse verticals.”

Established in 2008, Diva Digital Imaging has a diverse clientele, delivering an array of products including seasonal cards, catalogs, brochures, and commercial graphic prints. With a renewed focus on labels, Lakhani emphasizes, “The advanced capabilities of the Ricoh Pro C7500 align perfectly with our vision for seamless label production.”

The decision to invest in the Ricoh Pro C7500 underscores Diva Digital Imaging’s enduring partnership with Monotech Systems, complementing an existing lineup of cutting-edge machines. Lakhani says, “We have placed our trust in Monotech Systems since 2010, and the Ricoh Pro C7500 represents a milestone in our journey. Its expanded color gamut and media flexibility are truly impressive.”

Designed to surpass conventional CMYK printing, the Ricoh Pro C7500 features a special color station for white and invisible ink enhancements, catering to luxury print effects. Capable of operating at speeds of 95 ppm and accommodating a wide range of media, the press promises stunning graphic prints at resolutions of 2400×4800 dpi.

Ajeet Pareek, business head – digital products and solutions, Monotech, said “This marks a significant milestone for both Diva Digital Imaging and Monotec. The Ricoh Pro C7500 promises to revolutionize digital printing capabilities, and we are confident that it will empower Diva to excel in its endeavors and explore new horizons in the printing industry.”

Backed by a dedicated team of 45 professionals, Diva Digital Imaging is poised to explore new market segments with confidence. Lakhani concludes, “The Ricoh Pro C7500 empowers us to explore new applications, particularly in label production.” 

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.
