Creative Graphics is one of the largest flexo prepress trade houses engaged in prepress processing the production of flexo printing plates, digital flexo plates, letterpress, and coating plates. The continuously growing company keeps adding new production locations and the latest technology to keep its commitment to brand owners and packaging converters.

Headquartered in Noida the company has a country-wide presence with six manufacturing units providing the highest quality, and solutions for its clients’ most challenging jobs, and the high level of engagement and service that are essential in achieving excellence in packaging prepress and printing.

In October 2021, Creative Graphics participated in the IndiaCorr Expo, which took place at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, after the long gap caused by the safety constraints of the pandemic. At the Creative Graphics stand, we met with its managing director Deepanshu Goel. Goel was busy throughout the show with customers and showing them some of the innovations and improvements achieved by mastering the newest technologies.

Goel said that the footfall at the event was surprisingly large and it was “a good crowd.” He added that he was happy to meet the company’s old customers after a long time, especially those who attended the trade show to make the right decisions for their business.

A regular participant in IndiaCorr Expo, Goel spoke about his company’s experience in the pandemic and about the Covid-19 situation, “Every situation gives you some challenges, and the Covid period was a bit challenging for us, but it gave us a new dimension to grow. We started new facilities during the Covid period, knew our clients better, and increased our efficiencies. So, overall it was a good learning experience for us, Covid has taught us so many things.”

Creative Graphics said – ‘We are blessed to be a part of the packaging industry’

“We have come up with a new technology which is premounted plates and is made with the help of new cutting tools from Esko having zero error. At this exhibition, we are displaying high-quality 4-color printing plates, which are prepared for the support of Emba, Bobst, and some Chinese machines.”

Goel was referring to flexo plate requirements brought about by the boom in the last couple of years of flexo print and gluer machines that are increasingly used to print on corrugated boards, and then diecut and folded and glued inline in many cases. These automated machines are used to efficiently and productively make higher quality printed boxes without the problems of fishtailing. They have helped corrugation with print and branding to do well in the pandemic with the boom in eCommerce and its increased use in the quick delivery of meals.

Goel concluded his conversation with a wise message to the packaging industry, “We are very blessed to be a part of the industry. And, the market is growing at a good pace, and we will all of us overcome this problem or setback that has affected us financially as well as emotionally.”

 

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
