Hi Everyone,

Progress in business cannot be achieved overnight and it also cannot be achieved only by investing in new technology, visiting exhibitions, attending technical seminars etc.

To progress in business its equally important to learn from India’s most successful entrepreneurs of printing industry, how they built their multi million empire from scratch.

Here is rare chance to meet and listen to many such successful printers.

Also get a chance to meet large print buyers from corporate sectors who will explain what are the current trends and requirements in Printing & Packaging to meet the global challenges.

Even its important to know from them what they expect from you as a print supplier.

YOU CANNOT MISS THIS PRINT SUMMIT 2012 which is a rare opportunity no matter how big or small printer you are.

Finally five global screen masters all set to shower knowledge at FESPA AMERICAS in Orlando

February 19, 2011 2 comments

All set to fly to Orlando, USA within next few hours to join the elite club of 5 Global Screen Masters who are going to conduct exhaustive 3-day workshops on advanced screen printing during the FESPA AMERICAS on 24, 25 and 26th February 2011. CLICK HERE FOR WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

My brand new screen printing package now popularly called as Nano Premier League (NPL) has already reached Orlando for the workshop. A set of DMI’s creative samples has also been sent along with NPL to promote my print finishing concept for value addition through screen printing.

‘Orlando’ is synonymous with the famous Walt Disney World or Disney World, the world’s largest and most-visited recreational resort. If this world famous resort was inspired by the dreams of Walt Disney, then FESPA AMERICAS I would say, is inspired by the think tanks of FESPA Board to fulfill the aspirations of American Screen Printers. And I would look forward to conduct this workshop which I hope would bring fun to every attendee as much as the Disney World.

So, please stay tuned to my blog for daily update with photographs which I shall upload on day to day basis after the workshop. Because this is going to be one of the first of its kind creative live workshop on advanced screen printing organised by FESPA.

GULF PRINT PACK 2011, Dubai – 14 to 17 March 2011

WoW! This would be our second appearance in an international exhibition within 45 days. Recently we had successfully exhibited wide range of screen printing machines and allied equipment in the 14th Annual Sign and Graphic Imaging Middle East exhibition at Dubai Airport Expo.

Now once again my team is busy in preparing for the International exhibition on Printing & Packaging Industry to be held at Dubai Airport Expo from 14-17 March 2011. This would be our third exhibition within one year in Dubai.

This time we are demonstrating 30″ x 40″ Cylinder Press with inline UV with all new improved features like sticky roller for dust removal and antistatic system along with NPL package.

Gulf Print & Pack focuses on the latest innovations in printing machinery, substrates and other solutions that will allow the screen printing business to grow in many folds.

Garknit-X, Kolkata – 25 to 27 February 2011

And now we have this GarKnit-X in Kolkata next week which is an international trade show on apparel, knitting, leather and jute technology fabric & accessories, to be held at Science City from February 25 – 27, 2011. We will be displaying our complete NPL package for the first time in eastern region all with new and improved features besides array of DMI’s creative samples all 100% screen printed.

Nano-Print plus production commenced…

The production of our new innovation “Nano-Print plus” is now in full swing. There is a surprise to all those who have booked for this machine earlier. Nano-Print plus has been redesigned after meticulous R&D by our engineering team to offer bigger print area 22” x 28” instead of 18″ x 24″ print area with no additional cost.

By the way we have also started to offer NPL plus package. Download PDF for more details about attractive discounts offered on NPL plus

What’s new to see in next DMI Workshop:

NEW Series of Packaging design and innovation through screen printing with special effect.

I will also be showing my new concept – Nano Print semi automatic multi color line using 100 LPI halftone dots.

The reason to show this innovative concept in my workshop from now onwards is to educate how to reduce manpower and supervision cost and how to increases productivity. This is something I believe never done before in the screen printing industry with semi automatic machines.

CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE IN DETAILS ABOUT MY NEW CONCEPT

So folks finally have a nice weekend and don’t forget to see my FESPA AMERICAS workshop blog and photos daily from 24th onwards.

Thank you an good bye for now…

Meet the five global gurus at Screen Masters Workshop at FESPA AMERICAS, Orlando

February 7, 2011 16 comments

When I received an email from Frazer Chesterman, Managing Director of FESPA:

“Hi Bhargav, I am running a Workshop in America at our new show – FESPA Americas. It will be an on the floor event for US students of Screen.

I am interested in you being part of the Screen Masters concept.

It would be Michel Caza master for Graphics

Charlie Taulieb and Scott Fresener for T-shirts and Textile

Ad Versteeg for Art

And you for special effects”

I was thrilled, excited and my immediate response to his email was ‘yes’ with lot of enthusiasm to join the four global gurus and expert in their respective field. Now I will be the fifth global guru to demonstrate my expertise in special effect screen printing jointly with Michel Caza in graphics process color screen printing.

I, Scott, Charlie, Ad and Michel were very excited to be the part of Screen Master Workshop organized in this giant show FESPA AMERICAS in Orlando, USA.

Below is what Michel Caza commented to Frazer when he heard about this unique concept for the first time.

Dear Frazer,

“I love the idea of workshop. We could manage something both for screen high tech in graphic screen (very fine line halftone screen printing), share between Bhargav who is the best teacher in the world (see the giant success of DMI in India) and me. We are used to work together.

In textile, may be my new technology in water based UV printing on garment combined with Charlie’s special effects.”

With Michel Caza this would be my second workshop experience after the FESPA 2010 Munich show.

So, I was invited by FESPA as one of the FIVE Global Screen Masters to conduct live workshops on advanced screen printing process and special effect in print finishing at their forthcoming FESPA AMERICAS Workshop.

The other four “Screen Masters” or the international screen printing experts are:

SGIA Parmele Award winners, Michel Caza, France and Scott Fresener, USA.

Charlie Taublieb, Taublieb Consulting USA.

Ad Versteeg, Secretary of Het Zeefdruk Instituut, Netherlands.

FESPA AMERICAS is an international exhibition-cum-conference to be held from February 24-26, 2011 at Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, USA. This is FESPA’s first ever Screen Masters Workshop.

Hosted daily by five screen industry gurus, participants will benefit from our collective expertise. Michel Caza and I would reveal the Secrets of Great Graphics Printing and special effects, print finishing for value addition. A large number of visitors are expected to gain lot of tips and innovative ideas from all of us.

Joining the elite club of Global Screen Printers at FESPA AMERICAS is not only a great honor to me, my company Grafica and my institute DMI but also to my beloved country.

When it comes to the scope and opportunities in screen printing many experts from all over world generally speak about Industrial screen printing, textile, graphics, decals etc. but screen printing has huge demand in print finishing for value addition not only in offset prints and packaging products but also in many other segments. I was told that printers in USA have not identified the power and secrets of screen printing in print finishing the way I am exploring and promoting it in India through my institute DMI.

In a way, FESPA AMERICAS workshop is a pioneering step intended to provide the passionate community of screen printers with an exclusive opportunity to gain practical tips and expert advice on how to achieve phenomenal print results from the five global Screen Masters.

The Five Global Screen Masters are being invited to deliver a blend of hands-on training and technical presentations, focused around garment decoration, fine arts, signs and graphics, print finishing and special effect.

To make this concept a success I will be leaving next week to Orlando for FESPA AMERICAS show along with my team and Grafica’s NANO PREMIER LEAGUE package to run live workshop.

I will be also displaying a wide variety of print finishing samples and process color screen printing samples to teach special effect in screen printing to US screen printers and graphic students.

Especially for this show I have designed a poster which I will be screen printed live on NANO-PRINT. Since Michel was expert in screen printing 150 to 300 LPI he wanted me to print minimum 100 LPI on NANO-PRINT to demonstrate his expertise. So with all his online help and support my students did the proofing on NANO-PRINT to make sure everything is set right for the workshop.

My students worked very hard to with me continuously day and night for one week to linearize the whole process to successfully screen print 100 LPI on NANO-PRINT. In fact I was stunned to see such a fantastic result of four color graphics screen printed on NANO-PRINT with 100 LPI.

In fact I created an ICC profile on NANO-PRINT using my Profile Maker before my students screen printed the final proof. We did lot of intense trials and proofing and I think my experiment will be a guiding light to many of my customers who want to successfully print process color screen printing on Grafica’s NANO-PRINT.

Here is the photo of the final proof shot from my iPhone screen printed with 100 LPI on NANO-PRINT.

To print this specially designed FESPA AMERICAS poster, we lined up four NANO PRINTS with four NANO-UV inline. This was our first experiment of printing CMYK at one go on NANO-PRINT just like a multi color screen printing lines. This concept will be a new trend setter in future because its the best time saving system.

This concept was really helpful to me when I printed this proof because I got clear idea how the image will finally look after all four colors are printed. This also saved my time to make proper decisions.

The best part of this concept is you can re-correct or tweak the setting of machines without wasting time to set proper densities as per profile to achieve correct  grey balanced image or else you have to wait for the result of your image after the final (fourth) color is screen printed.

Once the video of four NANO-PRINT with four inline NANO-UV is ready I will send you the link to know how four NANO-PRINT works together with inline NANO-UV to print CMYK on after another.

But time being checkout this short video which I have uploaded on YouTube again taken from my iPhone.

My plan in FESPA AMERICAS is to show practical part of print finishing with Michel Caza. In the print finishing segment I am going to demonstrate The Cake Basket which has several special effects. Since there is a time limit for everyones presentation, so I have printed some of the effects at DMI and only six effects will be printed live at the workshop.

The FESPA AMERICAS is expected to provide the US, Central and South American region with a completely different show case of wide format digital, screen and textile printing innovations.

The event is supposed to give lot of insights to participants who can witness the complete screen printing process and have the exclusive opportunity to absorb passion of ‘FIVE’ Screen Masters.

Founded in 1962, FESPA is a not-for-profit federation of trade associations and an organizer of exhibitions and conferences for the screen and digital printing industries and I have been associated with FESPA since last six years.

I have done lot of road shows and workshops in India but FESPA AMERICA would be my first landmark experience as I would be conducting live workshop for the first time overseas. I am sure the workshop of five Global Screen Masters will create a great impact in the US screen printing market.

If you get chance to visit FESPA AMERICAS, Orlando do register your seats for “Screen Masters Workshop” and learn great new techniques in screen printing from the five global gurus.

Hope to see you soon…

Regards,

Bhargav

More than 1200 printing professionals took training at DMI

January 12, 2011 10 comments

It gives me immense pleasure to reveal you all that till today DMI has provided high quality training to more than 1200 printing professionals across the globe through our regular workshops and corporate training programs.

I am also thrilled to know from my team that NANO-PRINT plus is receiving overwhelming response. In just one month after its launch at Screen Print India 2010 exhibition we booked 36 machines. This gives me complete satisfaction that the design of this machine has been widely accepted and highly appreciated by every screen printer. My team has really worked hard to maintain a very reasonable price tag of this machine at the same time keeping a strict vigil on the design and manufacturing.

I am sure NANO-PRINT & NANO-PRINT plus will be trend setters in bringing automation in the screen printing industry all over the world.

Currently NANO range of machine i.e, NANO-PRINT & NANO-PRINT plus, NANO-SCREEN MAKER 5-in-1, NANO-UV & NANO-SHARPENER are not only getting popular in India but we are receiving many serious inquiries daily from overseas market.

For those who have missed the opportunity to see NANO-PRINT plus and our unique package NANO PREMIER LEAGUE (NPL) at Screen Print India 2010 in Mumbai, do not get dejected because we are all set to shows these machines live again at Print Pack India 2011 from 16 to 21 Jan 2011 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

So do visit us at Hall 9, Stall 5, 6 & 8.

How can you miss to see DMI’s latest creative sample gallery, 100% screen printed special effects? By seeing our creativity, you will definitely get new ideas in screen printing for value addition.

I recently concluded one more houseful workshop at DMI. This time there were more than 40 participants including one from Tanzania and one from Mauritius (my new customer).

This time to show innovative print finishing and packaging, we designed a new type of corporate folder with rare color combination of white on a silver foil paper board. The rest of silver foil was overprinted with 3D reflective design to give the most popular ‘micro embossing’ effect which is otherwise produced on a very expensive micro embossing machine. The final product we made in this workshop was Grafica’s new corporate folder, pen holder and sweet / chocolate box.

Previously all our folders and creative samples in packaging and print finishing had 10 to 16 special effects, but this time I made it a point to restrict it to 3 or max 4 special effects. I tried to make the product look more powerful in terms of design and aesthetic look. In fact the reason why I always incorporate so many effects was to cover all types special effects but at the same time participants used to always tell me that I should make design in such a way that the experiment looks viable to sell in the market and not to add too many effects for the sake of demonstration of value addition.

To restrict colors and effects on my practical jobs execution were challenging because we had to maintain very high standards in terms of aesthetics and at the same time limit the cost to a minimum. So, since the last two workshops we have developed packaging products with 3 or 4 colors/effects. At the same time designed in such a way that it looked elegant and premium product but still viable for printers to quote for their customers.

On silver foil mostly I have seen printers print only matt or special effect varnish to make the product effective. Even offset printers usually print process color CMYK but very rarely I have seen printers use white on silver foil. Believe me, white looks very rich in terms of elegance and design aspects. So this time we printed half white, half with 3D reflective ink (micro embossing), on few areas metallic orange and finally thick emboss effect (which many know or I call as Ticky) using 150 micron thick film.

The photos of all this screen printed stuff will give you a clear idea of what I have explained to you here. To know more about such ideas, do register online for my next workshop scheduled for 17-18-19 March 2011.

In this workshop we have added one more flavor in our training program by inviting Rajesh Patil, an expert from Adobe to provide useful, important time saving tips and tricks, using CS5 design premium.

As he informed me before few days that he would take only 1.5 hour session at DMI since it was his first presentation in my institute.

But he subtly observed during his presentation that everyone was quite serious in watching his informative eye-opening presentation, he extended his session and took more than 3 hours, showing many tricks of In-Design, Illustrator and Photoshop CS5. In fact I also realized such session would require more than 3 hours to give justification to the subject.

My institute DMI is now closely associating with Adobe Systems India to provide more time and in-depth knowledge about all Adobe design softwares.

If you are a designer, wedding card producer, a pre-press operator or in-charge of your in-house designing studio or screen printer who wants to make good designer paper carry bags, sweets / chocolate boxes or even advertising agencies, then our next workshop will be very enriching for you.

So, don’t miss our next workshop because I and Rajesh will work closely to make sure we cover the most part of the CS5 Design Premium software which will be useful for printers.

Next, I feel proud to be associated with Mike Young time and again.In 2009 I had sponsored his Knowledge Tour in India, covering various six major cities.

This time my company was one of a prime sponsors of his technical seminars at SPI 2010. Let me tell you little about my friend Mike.

He is a SGIA Fellows, a member of the Academy of Screen Printing Technology and recipient of the prestigious Swormstedt Award for technical writing.

Despite the hectic Screen Print India seminars, he visited my DMI institute and my companies shop floor. He was thrilled to see my DMI’s library which has a collection of various screen printing magazines and books dating back to 1960s. Immediately he told the students to take full advantage of DMI’s facilities including the library.

I must acknowledge and thank MikeYoung because he kind heartedly felicitated the DMI students for winning successive awards in ASPT competitions for the last four years.

Since it was virtually impossible for my students to go to USA every year to collect the award, when Mike Young presented them the certificates and cash awards which was given to each student by DMI.

I am also thankful to Mike for his thought-provoking interview which I have recently published in my Grafica News and e-News. Those who have not read the interview “What are the new and growing profitable markets for screen printers?” HERE IS THE LINK

Knowledge-wise, my customers are lucky these days because in my current and last issue of Grafica News, another international screen printing expert, Mike Ruff, the Chief Technology Officer of Nazdar Consulting Services, was kind enough to contribute two exclusive technical articles for Grafica News which contain lot of tips on color management.

Article 1 | Article 2

I am really indebted to Mike Ruff for his generous contribution for the benefit of my customers and screen printing industry at large. I know Mike Ruff for the last several years ever since I started reading his informative articles. I became closer to him after I became ASPT board member. His experience in the graphics printing industry spans more than 40 years. He is a certified G7 Color Calibration Expert and a regular instructor at the SPTF Graphics Four-Color Workshop in Fairfax, VA, and he has authored numerous articles published in trade publications domestically and internationally.

The PDF version of our Grafica News is now available for download from our website. Those who are not receiving Grafica News you can still download the soft copy.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD.

We are publishing Grafica News since 2004 and circulating around 5000 copies all over India and abroad.

Apart from printers I also make sure to send printed copies to OE’s, Advertising Agencies and Print Buyers. This help them to find suitable printer solution provider.

By this way Grafica updates print buyers about the latest trends in screen printing.

Finally let me end here because I have many task to prepare for Print Pack India 2011 to make sure we make our best presentation at this mega trade event.

At this exhibition all six days we will be printing various special effect on all Cylinder Press, Cam-Shell, Two-Post, Nano-Print plus, Nano-Print with UV inks and varnish.

The latest DMI’s creativity which was recently screen printed in the last workshop will be demonstrate. So do not miss to watch and gain some insights, new tricks on value addition and print finishing.

Our complete DMI creative sample gallery will also be the show stopper for printers who looking for value addition through screen printing and wants to make more profits with minimum investments.

Kindly visit us at Hall 9, Stall 5,6 & 8 to see latest creativity in screen printing technology.

See ya at Print Pack India 2011…

Bhargav
