PrintWeek's Magazine shortlist says print is alive and kicking

03 September 2015

Both the newspapers and magazine category saw publishers add value, improve quality and increase pagination and yet, stick to the same budget. The samples were a mixture of coated and uncoated to increase impact and embossing the cover to give a tactile look and feel while being more cost-effective than purchasing pre-textured paper.

Jury members who judged this category were: Harsha Bhatkal of Popular Prakashan, Kritika Dayal of Stuff India, Manik Salunke of Kokuyo Camlin, Naju Hirani of Marg Foundation and Rajnish Shirsat of R&S Enterprise. The jury members felt, "magazine printers have better reproduction and binding. Also, the entries prove that magazines are very much alive and kicking.”
The shortlisted firms for the Magazine Printer of the Year are
  • Amol Associates
  • Dhote Offset Technokrafts
  • Indigo Press (India)Jak Printers
  • Manipal Technologies
  • Print Plus
  • Silverpoint Press
  • Thomson Press (I)
  • Vishwakala Printers
The Award to the winner will be awarded on 7 October, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai. It will be an opportune time to understand how print magazines are changing; and how more and more Indian companies are publishing specialist titles and pushing boundaries with the materials and processes.
