Mark Andy showcases Digital One press in Czech Republic

Digital technology for label printing


Mark Andy exhibited for the first time at Reklama Polygraf, a 3-day trade show in the Czech Republic, which was held from 29-31 May in Prague. As the only trade fair of its kind in the Czech Republic,  Reklama Polygraf  focuses on advertising, media and printing, providing professionals and businesses a space to discuss, collaborate and attend various workshops.

Mark Andy team demonstrated live the  Digital One  press. Digital One is a label press designed to free up capacity on high output flexo presses and bring greater efficiency to fast turnaround work. Built specifically for short run prime labels, it makes digital printing more accessible to businesses of all kinds.

During the show, Mark Andy consistently ran several print jobs on the Digital One. The first job consisted of 6 SKUs of microbrew beer labels on White PP substrate. The application showcased 1200 dpi CMYK digital printing and inline finishing. The second job was a series of wine labels on estate stock. The team also produced a job on transparent film for water cans.

The region has over 20 Mark Andy presses already up and running.

Mark Andy took home the prize of ‘TOP EXPO’ stand at Reklama Polygraf, being appreciated for approaching the stand project and elevating the overall level of this exhibition.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
