Established in 1996 as a reprographic shop engaging in photocopy and lamination, Devendra Photostat took a big turn in business from 2011 onward with constant investments in high-end production presses for offset and digital print productions. 

“We have Komori and Heidelberg presses in our offset printing unit. In the digital printing unit, our machine portfolio includes digital presses like Konica Minolta Bizhub Press C1085, Canon ImagePress C910, Ricoh Pro 8100S, Ricoh Pro 8200S and Ricoh Pro C7200X being the latest addition,” Devendra Singh Khokhar, CEO, Devendra Photostat & Lamination, said.

Khokhar is now joined by his son Rithik. “It has been just a few months since I joined the business. I look after the printing and production activities in both offset and digital units as well as digital large-format printing units,” Rithik Khokhar, managing director, Devendra Photostat, said. 

He added, “In addition to commercial printing, we also engage in digital large-format printing for which we have a Pixeljet solvent printer. We cherish almost a decade-old relationship with Monotech Systems, which supplied us with a Konica Minolta 6000, a Dumor print finishing system, a Pixeljet wide-format printer and the Ricoh Pro C7200X.”

“We offer the comprehensive range of prints using diverse technologies for the 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,” the junior Khokhar said.

He continues, “Beyond the usual commercial printing or CMYK gamut, we are now navigating across new applications in the digital domain, such as security and confidential printing of certificates and mark-sheets for schools, colleges and universities, using the advanced Ricoh Pro digital press. For this, we have so far roped in Maa Shakambhari University (Saharanpur), Arunachal University of Studies (Namsai), and Sabarmati University (Ahmedabad), to mention a few.”

He said the printing capability of the Ricoh machine, with additional special colours, helps them unlock new applications. To be precise, the fifth color station of the press delivers gold, silver, white, clear, neon (pink & yellow) and invisible red toners. 

Backed by a team of 60 well-trained graphic design and printing professionals, Devendra Photostat now boasts on-time delivery of commercial graphics with unique sharpness and textures out of the box, using the new Ricoh Pro C7200X.
