Raghavendra Raju, proprietor of Hyderabad based Vijaya Printers was caught in the illusion that screenprinting is losing its shine until he attended DMI's workshop and bought Grafica's Nano-Premier League (NPL). “ After attending this workshop I realized that screen printing was not dying but it is making a new beginning especially with the advent of automation and UV special effects,” he recalls. I wanted to make a new beginning in screen printing, using new print finishing ideas, right method of screen making, etc. which I learnt thoroughly at DMI. I bought NPL to do innovative jobs and value addition on wedding cards, paper bags, corporate brochures and print finishing on offset printed jobs,” says Raju. love with Nano,” says Kaushik. “ The interesting aspect of Grafica is that they are customer oriented; their R&D team is adaptable to customers' special needs. This is something unique.”

DMI workshop experience: “ Before DMI I was under the impression that I know lot about screen printing. But on 3rd day of DMI workshop, I confessed on the stage, in front of 40+ printing professionals that whatever I have learnt at DMI was new additional knowledge and had I learnt such advanced Screen Printing techniques 5 years ago, I might be at much higher level.”

Future plans:

“ Soon I will be going for a Nano- Print plus and probably a high end machine at later stage. This reflects how much I am satisfied with NPL.
