I particularly look after the printing and production activities in both offset and digital units as well as digital large-format printing unit,” tells Rithik Khokhar, Managing Director, Devendra Photostat & Lamination. He adds, “In addition to commercial printing, we also engage in digital large-format printing for which we have Pixeljet solvent printer. We cherish almost a decade old relationship with Monotech Systems and bought Konica Minolta 6000, Dumor print finishing system, Pixeljet wide format printer and now RICOH PRO C7200X which is our latest buy.”
Devendra Photostat & Lamination is indeed a complete treasure trove of printing, viz. offset, digital and large-format graphics under one roof. “We offer the most comprehensive range of prints using diverse technologies for widest range of products and applications such as catalogues, booklets, leaflets/flyers, brochures, pamphlets, calendars, mailers, business cards, labels, boxes, packaging boxes, outdoor billboards, wall-posters, etc at economical rates,” says Rithik.
Mr. Rithik continues, “Beyond the usual commercial printing or CMYK gamut, we are now navigating across new applications in the digital domain, such as security&confidential printing of certificates and mark-sheets for schools, colleges and universities, using the highly advanced RICOH Pro C7200X digital press which we bought from Monotech Systems.” He adds, “For that we have so far roped in Maa Shakambhari University (Saharanpur), Arunachal University of Studies (Namsai), and Sabarmati University (Ahmedabad), to mention a few.”
