Mansukh Vaviya: We have a high degree of confidence in the binder, and in the investment

The Bindwel Bluechip has several new features for enhanced performance and is the first of the new range of bookbinders to be manufactured for the fast-growing digital print ops. Founder of Shree Print & Stationers, Mansukh Vaviya said, “Bindwel has helped us manufacture books for coaching class projects.”

Established in 2014, the firm is a specialist in short-run commercial print and corporate gifting. Vaviya commented: “We have a high degree of confidence in the binder, and in the investment. The experts we met at our 3,000-sqft factory buoyed our confidence that this was a good investment for the future.”

Shree Print & Stationers boasts two Konica Minolta presses, UV printing kit, Jewi cutting table, and a DC646 from Duplo. Thanks to the binder, Shree Print & Stationers can target the Mumbai print-buying market.

The firm operates in 3,000-sq/ft factory space and notched up a turnover of Rs 5.5-crore in a year. A team of 20 who work in a single-shift operation have created a USP around short-run, top quality, in-time service, and being a one-stop shop for commercial print applications.

Mansukh Vaviya is very proud of a Reliance Industries project where he said, “The customer supplied thousands of Kappa board boxes with foil". This he said was delivered in four working days — and meant printing, foiling, shape-cutting, plus dispatch. He added, there was another project where we delivered 150 sets of corporate gifts within three hours for a Marriotts event.

In addition, Shree Print & Stationers has published 1,500 diaries for Troy Chemical; as well as 13,000 invitation cards for a MLA in Eastern Maharashtra.

Today, the company caters to Reliance, ICICI Lombard, and hotel chains like Radisson and Marriott, plus fintech firms.

When probed why Bindwel, Vaviya said, We have heard about their quality, consistency and robustness. Many of my friends recommended Bindwel's single clamp perfect binder since it produces a strong bind and enables economic and efficient short runs.

Team Bindwel says the single-clamp Bindwel Blue Chip has an easily adjustable book clamp along with a cover nipping station to control the nipping pressure. What makes Bindwel so popular is its ability to execute a range of jobs that can be done with an easy job changeover.
