Nissha Printing Co.,Ltd.

Nissha Group company Nissha Printing Communications, Inc. is set to offer services for individual customers, centering on graphic designers, using its high-quality color digital printing system Nissha Digital Printing (NDP).

NDP Workshop

Editorial Design for Creating a One-Off Photo Book

Using NDP, Nissha Printing Communications organized a workshop for graphic designers titled "NDP Book Lab Workshop, Vol. 1—Editorial Design for Creating a One-Off Photo Book". The session was held in collaboration with Takeo Co., Ltd. , a trading company specializing in paper, and invited as lecturer Kimi Himeno, director of Akaaka Art Publishing, Inc., to offer hands-on experience of the process of creating a photo book.

NDP is ideal for translating the intricate expression needs of graphic designers into reality, as it achieves color reproduction on a level with offset printing and offers the freedom to select various types of paper. The service is friendly for individual customers seeking speedy, small lot production, since direct data-to-print eliminates the need for the plate making process.
On March 14, participants were invited to a tour of the Yachiyo Factory run by Nissha Group company Nitec Printing Co., Ltd., and to observe a demonstration of the processes of printing, cutting, and bookbinding using NDP. The workshop was designed with the hope of offering a feel of the joy of creation involving paper and printing, and by providing a glimpse of the editorial stage, of giving the participants an opportunity to view their designs from a fresh angle.
