Located at Pataudi House in Daryaganj in Delhi, IM Print Hub is an offshoot of its parent company, Shobi Offset, a prominent offset player known for book and magazine printing. 

Shoaib Khan, proprietor, IM Print Hub, said, “My father Abbas Ahmed Khan started Shobi Offset Press in 1984 primarily engaging in book and magazine printing and other related tasks, such as binding, lamination and so on. Two popular magazines, Aiwan-e-Urdu and Bachchon Ka Mahnama Umang of Urdu Academy in Delhi, were printed at Shobi Offset Press.”

He added, “We have a production setup equipped with a range of diverse presses, comprising both offset and web offset, among which is a Komori. Now, the trends and traditions in the printing industry have changed. So, we have purchased the new Rioch Pro C7200 to kickstart a journey into this innovative world of digital printing.”

Khan said in this endeavour, the company has chosen the right machine — Rioch Pro C7200, which has unique and advanced features, such as invisible inks, with which, Khan plans to indulge in a lot of creative graphics that will stand apart and impress his customers. 

The Ricoh Pro C7200 is designed to deliver high-quality prints with a resolution of 2,400x4,800-dpi, produced in a wide range of stocks, whether light or heavyweight, up to 360-gsm. With advanced features like banner sheet duplex printing mode, this digital production cut-sheet press can print at the speed of 85-ppm.

Backed by a team of around 25 well-experienced printing and production professionals, IM Print Hub has a huge roster of clients from Delhi-NCR and Jammu & Kashmir. 

“We have customers who have been closely associated with us for years or decades, which include some book publishers. Today, with the installation of the Ricoh, we offer them short-run prints and innovative graphics produced using the advanced features of the press, such as invisible inks. We would like to thank Monotech Systems for such marvel and machine, and their unconditional after-sales support,” Khan concluded.
