Best Printing Company in Kenya

I read about an article about best printing kenya on the site PRINTING IN KENYA and  after doing some printing with the first 3 listed company company this is want i come to learn about printing companies i n kenya:

1. one big printing companies they dont deliver on time, this because they have alot of work.
2. They dont take small order, apart from inkpaste printers & stationers, the rest have minimum order they take.
3. Big printing firm they dont respond to emsil or they take too long to do so.
4. They dont care about small customers

But after working with aviq printers and Inkpaste printers i would recommend them. they do good job and they deliver on time.

Reading culture is quickly developing in Kenya and this has seen a number of authors in Kenya publish hundred and thousand of different type of books, although religion books are on the rise, we cannot deny that education books leads in publication and circulation as well. Publish in Kenya is very easy if the author / writer is working with the right publisher or printing company in Kenya.
It is good to note not all printing company in Kenya, provide books publishing services, do your research well. Some of the printing companies that I know do well in books publishing in Kenya include: Inkpaste printers, Aviq printers, English press and Ramco printing.
Note that the good book start from the manuscript, design and printing and binding and one step may mess the all book and thus the process of books publishing and printing should be taken with great keenest.

Packaging and plastic industry - Compack exp

Much has been said and more remains unanswered about the packaging and plastic industry in Kenya. But the organisers of Compack expo exhibition in Kenya 2014 had in mind to bring all the industry players in packaging and plastics industry in Kenya and around the globe. The Compack expo which ended recently started June 02 – 04 2014 saw a number of people and companies display various products in packaging and plastic industry.

Compack expo – KICC was well arranged, however, the plastic industry being on the basement served as disadvantage to those who displayed down. We hope next years the planners would do a better job
