However, some from Sikkim and other parts of the region regularly come to us because we please them with their choices of prints for diverse applications such as personalised gifts, T-shirt graphics, banners, and many digital prints,” Pravin Gurung, Proprietor of Tungo, said.

He adds, “We are proud to say that our current production facility is backed by a team of half-dozen skilled printing professionals and a string of advanced machines comprising a digital large-format printer, cutting plotter, dye-sublimation printer, and above all is this newly arrived Ricoh Pro C5300S which we opted specifically for boosting our overall commercial digital printing to a new height. This Ricoh digital colour production press from Monotech Systems is ideally a game changer in digital printing for us. Its advanced features and technical proficiency are excellent.”

Being a comprehensive digital printing powerhouse, Ricoh Pro C5300S is robust enough to run at the speed of 65-ppm. “Our first impression of this Ricoh digital production press is its productivity and accuracy in print quality,” said Gurung, adding, “With this new machine, we are now more confident than ever to produce premium quality colour graphic prints for end products like brochures, cards, flyers, catalogues, marketing collateral and more.” 

In addition, when it comes to further counting on more advancement and capability of Ricoh Pro C5300S, this cutting-edge digital production press is compatible with a broad range of media comprising both lightweight and heavyweight stocks up to 360-gsm. “Enchanting digital printing is rather more enchanting than ever at Tungo with this Ricoh Pro C5300S we purchased from Monotech Systems,” he added.
