Born as a brainchild of Bhavan Navapara, Klick Digital Press kicked off its business in professional photography in 1994. “Led by our founder, we started engaging in getting momentous memories printed in a chic manner. We launched a colour photo lab for printing and production of high-quality photos of different textures and sizes, right from passport size photos to wedding album photos,” Pravan Navapara, partner, Klick Digital Press, said.
He added, “Nowadays, clicking photos is as easy as breathing. One click of the shutter could capture hundreds of photographs which however lie unnoticeably on our smartphones and computers. Such concern eventually led us to take on experiments of creating photo books as the right place for those photographs to stay physically and delightfully. This is how we came into full photo book business, investing in a line of highly sophisticated photography, printing and post-printing machines, among which is PixelGlow for special print enhancements.”
Having the right portfolio of advanced machines with a customer-oriented policy, Klick Digital Press introduced its brand Klick Photo Book for printing and production of high-quality photo books for clientele comprising professional and amateur photographers, photo studios, dealers, etc.
“Today, we are all set with a complete in-house facility equipped with high-end machines, such as HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press to print wedding photo albums, coffee table books, mini books, and others. And we are fully jazzed up about any print enhancement to be done on PixelGlow spot UV and foiling system,” Navapara said.
On why the company decided to opt for the PixelGlow, Navapara said, “When we surveyed the way our customers increased their demands for print enhancements to a new level, we were pretty sure that we needed a new machine that could do two things — embossing and foil printing — in one machine. After an extensive search, we finally found the PixelGlow. It turned out to be the right machine for both applications.”
PixelGlow offers high-quality digital embellishment in substantial dimensions that stand out as unique amid the crowd. The machine is based on variable drop technology with advanced features like efficient vacuum suction for flatbed and pin mechanism for material positioning. It is capable to take up a broad range of heavy and lightweight materials between 170- and 500-gsm with thickness up to 0.5-mm, depending on the nature of the media, for outstanding print enhancements in 600x4800-dpi.
On Monotech Systems’ after-sales service for PixelGlow, Navapara said, “Post-installation, we got full unconditional support from Monotech Systems through its trained technical staff. It also trained our staff for the smooth and productive operation of PixelGlow.”
