RICOH Pro series digital machines push Prasad Printers into book printing
Though located in a tucked away town of Kulshekar, around few kilometers away from Mangalore, Prasad Printers is known widely for its excellence in printing that exclusively includes short-run book printing using a couple of versatile RICOH digital machines—Pro C751EX and Pro 907EX. “Over the past four decades, since my father established this firm in 1972, we have been in the vanguard of delivering quality prints,” says Tomas Patrao of Prasad Printers. In addition to commercial prints, Prasad Prints extensively engages in book and magazine printing too.
RICOH Pro C751EX (colour) and RICOH Pro 907EX (monochrome) in their production facility are competent industrial workhorses for book printing, which include magazines, tabloids and coffee table books, souvenirs. “We have been closely tied up with two of the city’s leading publishers for whom we print books on value education, moral science and religion using RICOH machines,” mentions Tomas. Handling the colour jobs, RICOH Pro C751EX runs at 75 ppm to deliver print in 1200 x 4800 dpi while RICOH Pro 907EX delivers in black and white.
