Grafica News - October 2017
K.R. Patel, Balaji Creation, says: “Grafica nano-prinTag
plus is the best & fastest machine to print kids wear”
Khetshi Patel, Director of Mumbai based Balaji Creation, rather preferred Grafica nano-prinTag plus, instead of a costly imported machine. Why?
“We were well aware of many other international brands in textile printing machinery, However, owing to reliable quality and price advantage, coupled with assured prompt after sales service, we opted for Grafica,” says Khetshi Patel. The Balaji Group had won 2 awards in the recently concluded SPAI-FESPA Award'17 in Goa.
Why did you prefer Grafica's nano-prinTag plus?
The big advantage of Grafica is that they have a fantastic team dedicated to provide technical guidance not just once but on an ongoing basis. Moreover, our Graphic designer had attended DMI workshop and based on the knowledge, we improvised our system in design and pre press. He also trained our junior designers. I must mention here that Grafica's entire team are very cooperative.
We have been fully exploiting nano-prinTag plus (6 color/10 pallet) for more than a year without any problem to print upto 6 colors jobs, mostly kids wear. It is also being used to print logos, tag less label and kids under garments.
All these aspects gave us further confidence and very soon we plan to buy another DTG screen printing machine from Grafica.
