16 May 2018
In the Rapid Fire series, PrintWeek India asks eleven questions about print and beyond to Sindhu Nair of Sujilee Color Printers, Kollam, Kerala
What in your view is the single biggest achievement of Sujilee?
Being located in a remote town of Kerala like Kollam, Sujilee was able to grab mass popularity. That is the achievement.
Do you think there should be more women print CEOs in our industry?
Definitely. A busy, vibrant, goal-oriented woman is more attractive than a woman waiting around for a man to validate her existence.
What is the trickiest colour that you have had to print?
To print different shades of red, from orange to maroon.
Describe your day in two sentences?
My day begins watching the cleaning of the press premises, going through matters in the press and ending up with the family.
What is your most ‘wow’ moment (print / non-print)?
Hearing positive comments from satisfied customers.
One print blunder you made?
The blunders made by each and every employee are considered as mine.
One print job you wish Sujilee had printed?
PrintWeek India’s August 2017 edition which had a digital foiling on cover with a personalised masthead.
What is the one idea you would like to implement in your press?
A software which helps us to follow even in our absence, accurately as well as perfectly.
What is the quality you most like in an employee?
One who understands in the first brief and executes more than my imagination.
A below ten lakh investment which you thought was ‘wow’?
High speed, black and white digital printing kit.
Who are your print heroes in real life?
My better half, Saji Nair, the CEO of Sujilee.
