Looking forward to see you at SGIA 2011 New Orleans USA
Back again after a long gap due to many new and important project that are underway to surprise the screen printing industry shortly. Hhhmmm….
After returning from the FESPA’s General Assembly 2011 which was held this time in Budapest, Hungary I again got chance to meet my Guru Michel Caza and many other industry friends. We had good time exchanging ideas and sharing experiences about screen printing industry scenario.
Budapest is really beautiful city worth visiting. Here are some of the photos of this wonderful place.
Generally when ever I visit anywhere I have a habit to take my Pro DSLR Camera but this time for some reason I could not. So all these photos were taken from my iPhone 4. But when I saw them on my computer screen I was really amazed with its quality even in low light conditions.
Ok so now let me now pen down my blog covering some of the past events.
PrintWeek India Awards 2011 update!
And the awards go to… Screen Printer of the Year – Eswara Screen, Chennai
And the Special Award – Grafica’s Nano-Print – goes to an emerging screen printer

My company was exclusive sponsor of the screen printing category. I appreciate all printers who had submitted their entries with a spirit of healthy competition.
SPAI-FESPA Cross Country Table Top Exhibition:
We had successfully participated in a series of SPAI-FESPA Cross-Country Table Top exhibitions (CCTTEs) at various places, recent being in Ahmedabad, Morbi and Rajkot in Gujarat. Earlier, we had earlier participated in similar show at Aurangabad, Pune, Nashik, Surat, Vapi and Baroda. I personally feel that this kind of road shows at regional level will definitely boost the screen printing industry and it will also help local screen printers to learn new ideas and advance technology in screen printing. With the help of this road show my people were able to meet and interact with many screen printers who have still not visited any exhibitions so far. So I personally believe that these kind of regional road shows is a great initiative from SPAI & FESPA. Not only it’s good for printers but also economical for exhibitors to display their products conveniently.
Actually our main focus in all these shows is to educate screen printers about new trends, technologies and applications in screen printing which can help them to get new ideas so that they can implement it in their process and offer creative ideas to their customers locally. Frankly, almost all visitors were thrilled to see our innovative ideas which we demonstrated in print finishing and other packaging products 100% screen printed.
Till now we completed only 9 road shows out of 63 and in each event we distributed 100’s of creative samples which were screen printed in DMI. In fact the total cost of these 9 shows were peanuts if I consider the sampling cost which we distributed every where to all visitors. Each show was planned for 3 to 4 hours and in such short time there were around 150 to 300 foot steps in various regions, according to my team Ahmedabad and Rajkot was better in terms of visitors counts compare to others.
Since it was difficult for me to visit all places so when this show was scheduled in Pune I thought its better to visit and come back in a day since it was close to Mumbai.
Interestingly Ramu of PrintWeek also wanted to visit and have a look so he also joined me from Mumbai and we had a nice time together exchanging ideas of various printing industry. Since his knowledge and information in broadly focused on various printing industry so I got a better chance to interact with him about the Indian printing industry.
Now Over to DMI Workshops:
It makes me really feel happy, charged and proud to conduct houseful workshops repeatedly. This time we have amazing group of creative printers from all over India and few from abroad. Here is the group photo of my July Workshop.
As you see in the photo below I had presented them exclusive 3D Screen Printed Certificates. Participant were overwhelm by receiving this certificate from me.
I am yet to prepare my write about my recent DMI workshop concluded on 22-23-24 September were we screen printed creative table matts and coster on MDF (Wood). I shall reveal all what we did in this workshop. So please bear with me few more days…
The next DMI workshop is now scheduled on 1-2-3 December, so go ahead and register soon. In this workshop there are big news, great surprise and many more exciting offers coming up… So log on to our website regularly and stay updated.
Now Some Exciting News:
I feel proud to announce that we might be the first Indian screen printing machine manufacturers to show case wide range of products live at forth coming SGIA Expo 2011 in New Orleans, USA on October 19-21, 2011. If by any chance you are planning to visit this exhibition make sure to meet me at Booth No. 2901.
We shall also display an array of creative print finishing samples and many more UV special effects which were screen printed during my Workshop in DMI.
After exploring our DMI’s creativity in India through various workshops now it’s time I shall explore this idea even in US and the European market.
I also look forward to meet my colleagues at ASPT (Academy of Screen Printing Technology) annual general meeting which is scheduled during SGIA 2011 Expo.
