Established 15 years ago, Shiva Graphics in Kanpur offers varied print graphics under one roof, serving customers from various parts of the city and its surrounding areas. “Over the years we have provided end-products which our customers are quite satisfied in terms of quality and innovation. Well, when it comes to print ‘innovation’ we have now elevated it to another level as we are equipped with the PixelGlow, which is ideally an amazing spot UV and foiling system we have ever owned,” says Shiva Arora, Proprietor of Shiva Graphics.

The range of end-products which Shiva Graphics currently offers primarily consists of labels, stickers, business cards, photos, product catalogues, fliers, and others. “Over the years, there have been trends of adding unique innovations and enhancements to commercial prints. One of the common demands from our customers is to make their prints different from the ordinary or standout amid crowds, in terms of texture and appearance. In this, we now make it flawlessly for them because PixelGlow is with us,” tells Shiva.

He adds, “The PixelGlow added recently to our machine portfolio meets all the parameters we require for print embellishment. After all, it’s economical and standard and it has advanced features. Nevertheless, PixelGlow has changed the way we beautify any given print. For example, PixelGlow’s special spot UV coating and varnishing effects add a ‘wow’ factor to every single sticker we produce today, further, we can add foiling to make it shine and stand out. Now, we can impress our customers with such next-level print innovation that we got through PixelGlow.”
