Fingertouch, a name synonymous with paper products and stationery, recently announced the installation of the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 machine. The group, founded 40 years ago by Ramachandran and Jayasree Ramachandran, has continually evolved and expanded its offerings.

The journey began with a modest start in Calicut, primarily selling paper and stationery products. Over the years, Jayaram Group diversified its portfolio and introduced an exclusive wedding cards outlet, Jayaram Cards, 30 years ago. With a commitment to unique designs and collections, the brand expanded its presence to Malappuram, Kannur, Kochi, and emerged as the first wedding card manufacturer in Kerala with a pan-India and international clientele.

Twenty years ago, Nitin, an audio engineer, joined the family business, bringing his expertise to further enhance the group’s capabilities. Five years later his brother, Nikhil, armed with an MBA, joined the endeavor, focusing on expanding operations and physical stores.

Recognizing market opportunities and keeping pace with industry trends, the Jayaram Group ventured into digital printing 15 years ago, eventually rebranding the printing and packaging unit as Fingertouch. They evolved into a comprehensive printing solution, with a dedicated focus on design, printing, and packaging.

The Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 aims to revolutionize digital printing with its advanced 6-color print engine, delivering expressive capabilities. With superior productivity, it achieves high-speed printing at an impressive 120 ppm, even when utilizing all 6 colors. The press ensures high-definition expression, offering an output resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi. Coupled with a high-performance print server, the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 maximizes the efficiency of the print engine, ensuring optimal results for every print job.

Versatility is a key feature, as this press supports a wide range of stocks, accommodating everything from 52 gsm lightweight paper to 400 gsm heavyweight paper. With a print range spanning from a minimum of 98 x 148 mm to an expansive 330 x 1200 mm, it caters to diverse printing needs.

Ramachandran expressed his enthusiasm about this new phase, stating, “We’re thrilled about this next step in our digital journey and the value this press brings to our customers. Our path has been defined by continuous innovation and an unwavering commitment to quality. Fujifilm and Insight are outstanding partners to collaborate with.”

Revoria stands out with its hybrid static eliminator, crafted by Fujifilm. This helps in neutralizing static on every printout, ushering in a new era of print handling perfection. This also helps with printing on plastics and synthetics as well as paper media.

“The South holds immense significance for us, and Revoria’s presence continues to flourish in this dynamic region with esteemed customers like Fingertouch. Fujifilm Revoria press is not just about great quality and versatility – it offers unbeatable returns and longevity, making it a true game-changer in the industry.“ remarked Ajay Aggarwal, CEO & MD at Insight Print Communications.

Fujifilm’s AI image enhancement feature endows customers with a competitive advantage. This artificial intelligence elevates image quality by intuitively analyzing and optimizing based on specific image types. No longer shackled by the constraints of poor-quality images – be they overly dark, excessively bright, backlit, or plagued by suboptimal skin tones or sky colors – the advanced AI effortlessly corrects and transforms them into stunning, flawlessly printed pictures. 

“Fingertouch’s investment in the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 is a testament to the continuous innovation and impact our digital print technology brings to the graphic art market. The Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 is designed to enhance productivity and print speed. With its 6 stations and special color capabilities like pink, gold, silver, clear, texture, and white, it fosters more opportunities for growth. We take pride in partnering with Fingertouch in their journey as pioneers in the industry,” commented Priyatosh Kumar, head of Business, Graphic Communications, Fujifilm India.

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.
