Established in 1978 with a meagre investment in a used hand-platen printing machine, Foil Printers is a brainchild of the industry veteran Kamal Chopra, who is now joined by his two sons — Sudhir and Dalip Chopra. 

“When we were in pursuit of an advanced and versatile digital press to boost our short-run production in terms of quality and volume, it was Monotech Systems that came to our mind. One can pick up a Ricoh press from the other distributor, but the service and after-sales support you receive from Monotech Systems is incomparable,” said Dalip Chopra, production manager, Foil Printers. 

The company boasts of a state-of-the-art production facility of 12,000-sqft, equipped with a full portfolio conventional and ultra-modern equipment of pre-press, press and post-press machines for letterpress printing, colour offset printing, thermography, UV printing, silk screen printing, hot foil stamping, digital and variable data printing. 

Foil Printers offers complete solutions — from designing, printing and up to finishing — all under one roof. “Our one-stop approach to offer comprehensive printing solutions has enabled us to deliver quality prints in the most cost-effective manner. In this, we have adopted the Ricoh Pro C5310S from Monotech Systems, which is indeed a powerhouse with a small footprint. We invest in this advanced digital press for an overall enhancement in our quality print production,” Chopra said.

He continued, “Our first impression of the Ricoh Pro C5310S was that this compact digital press is capable of delivering exceptional imaging in a range of finishing options.” 

Designed in a perfect manner with advanced features, this colour production digital press is a trusted companion to any business engaging in professional printing. It can run up to 80-ppm, up to 360-gsm duplex, handling up to 13x19.2-inches paper size in high-end finishing mode.
