The Indore based first generation entrepreneur installs KODAK CTP and Komori Enthrone 29 Press.
From working at a pre-press house to setting up his own graphic design house, to screen printing and then setting up a printing unit with an old Heidelberg machine, the two-decade long journey was arduous and enriching for Subhash Soni. A strong base in graphic arts over the years as an employee and then a first-generation entrepreneur, the dream was to grow business as well as the brand of Shree Parth Graphics.
Based in Indore, Shree Parth Graphics signed with Insight Print Communications to purchase a KODAK TRENDSETTERQ400 with PRINERGY bundle, and added FM screening and PRINTLINK to power their pre-press and setup a seamless plate-making operation. They also have KODAK’s T-MDE plate processor for regular wet processing of KODAK plates.
With a background in design, having a complete pre-press solution in-house was critical since Subhash Soni understood the importance of high-LPI printing for better quality output. The sustainability of print and business, durability of the equipment and the ability to perform in the most challenging print environments, combined with the need to have a future-looking technology on board, prompted the investment in KODAK’s CTP + Processor + Workflow bundle. SQUAREspot thermal imaging, KODAK’s industry-leading imaging technology, is the driving factor behind KODAK CTP which delivers consistent 2400 dpi throughput.
The other logical step was to upgrade from a used Heidelberg machine to a new Komori Enthrone 29 press. Purchased through Insight Print Communications, this was another big step to bring more value into the chain of operations. The dependency of maintaining a used machine and frequent breakdowns was eliminated with the Enthrone 29. Moreover, with the free-flowing production and flawless operation of their new Komori press, they now have consistent production with minimum manpower required to support the process and execute jobs.
With the seamless connect between pre-press and press, KODAK’s PRINTLINK aids in generating CIP3 compliant files that define ink-key settings for the plate, greatly reducing make-ready time. The overall quality of print is also enhanced by taking advantage of KODAK FM Screening or Staccato, generating high-fidelity, continuous tone and extended colour gamut images that are free of any visible artefacts.
Heavily into commercial printing jobs, Shree Parth Graphics turns around designs with an in-house team as a first step, also doing job work at times, and provides a turnkey solution –concept-design-print-deliver – owing to their top of the line finishing equipment, creating and end-to-end operation that strives to delight customers.
A Canon digital equipment complements the printing setup by catering to short-run digital jobs. With a 100% in-house setup for pre-press, press, post-press and digital, Shree Parth Graphics has achieved a higher level of client satisfaction since they have complete control along every step in the quality process. Security of design and print jobs is another big benefit. Put together, this translates into peace of mind to Subhash Soni, his team and his customers. A complete service provider, Shree Parth Graphic is now pushing the envelope to print better and cater to even greater market needs.
The next generation at Shree Parth Graphics is already deeply involved in sustainably growing the print business, with Nikhil Soni handling the entire production and process departments, and Parth Soni contributing with expertise in graphics concept design. In fact, Parth Soni is quite the design protégé with 19 international brand identity design contests in his kitty.
The addition of latest equipment and technologies is what drives Shree Parth Graphics to add more productivity by delivering system-driven performance over a more manual process with constant intervention. The Insight Print Communications team has not only sold and installed the KODAK CTP, Processor, Workflow and Komori Press, but also supports the site for their service needs, giving a truly one-stop-shop experience for their pre-press and post-press and ensure they deliver the excellent service value that they are known for.
