Digital Printer of the Year 2016: Avantika Printers (Tie)

Okay. It’s official. New Delhi is the digital printing capital of India. This year, we have two winners in the category and both are from Delhi. Chanakya Mudrak is back for the second time after clinching the title last year and Avantika Printers is back for the fourth time after making a hat-trick of the category a few years back.

Avantika Printers’ ‘C800 Media Catalogue’ for Canon was printed on the Canon ImagePress C800 boosted by the EFI F200 server. The media catalogue showcases this kit’s prowess to print on different substrates using different image outputs.

Thus, a variety of papers were used. Colour consistency was maintained through robust process control on different substrates. The PUR-bound book has a screen-printed cloth cover.

The 20 copies of ‘Ek Nayi Subah’ coffee-table book was printed on the C800 using 190 gsm Rendezvous paper. And it comes with a seven-inch screen and a port to charge, to play a video, all within the book.

According to the company, the client wanted to give its customers the feel of the event they are promoting and so the video screen was important. The ‘Hindustan Times Leadership Summit’ coffee-table book is an example how digital can do everything that offset can. It was printed in accordance with the same book printed in offset, on a C800 and media profiling with the Xrite i1Process Control on Iris 60 gsm. The cover in Antique gold paper had screen-printed patterns with the titles in white raised UV and metal prototyping.

For the 100 copies of the sample ‘Van Vismay’, the client wanted to give the end-users a feel of nature for their housing project. So the job was conceptualised on wood instead of printing on a wood textured paper.
