The Manipal Group publishes, prints and distributes their own regional language magazines (the weekly family magazine Taranga; the Indian film magazine Roopatara and the literary Tushara) in India and hence knows the nuances of the magazine production process. Manipal Digital Systems (MDS) forges partnerships with our magazine customers that enables them to focus on content creation while we handle their production and technology needs. Our team offers end-to-end design, production and layout services to all types of magazine publishers. Our production service partnerships with publishers can augment the variable labor and eliminate the need for freelancers during peak seasons. This service specifically addresses the needs of publishing companies that outsource their production.
Publishers benefit from the MDS's printing expertise when designing and producing magazines. MDS color professionals have extensive experience in high-end advertising, celebrity and editorial image retouching, regularly working with Art Directors, Creative Directors and Photographers. This production knowledge, combined with project and process management reduce steps during magazine production while optimizing workflows and quality. All publications are assembled 100% digitally. This enables MDS to use the latest developments in digital imaging which reduces the customers overall cost while improving the quality and turn around time of each finished magazine. Digital files can also be easily converted for other uses such as website use.
