Ravindra Ganpat Chopade (41) owns a printing shop and has modified/developed three different kinds of printers for golden printing and embossing. He was born in Nanded but moved to Mumbai with his family when he was about 3 years old. Since they arrived in Mumbai in the year 1972-73, the family has stayed in Powai, a locality in Mumbai suburbs. He has witnessed his house walls transform from wood to aluminium and then to brick wall. Living in a slum at Gokhale nagar of Powai, Ravindra’s biggest wish is to own house someday. His motivation to create an identity for himself has driven him so far in spite of difficulties.

Thesis, project report, cover page of reports need to be printed with embossed letters mostly in golden ink. Conventional letter press technology is tedious and time consuming, it involves that letters be placed correctly in the dye, dye be heated and then pressed over the rexine, leather or paper with golden foil on them. To replace the manual process of embossing with automatic one, innovator has developed an arrangement in existing printers and came up with three models of golden embossing machines.

Golden embossing machines are set of machines used for embossing printing on paper, rexine, leather etc.. Innovation is in arrangement done in printing heads of different types of printers to facilitate embossed printing. Golden color fonts and pictures are result of gold foil used over the printing base where gold foil repeatedly comes in contact with printing head of printer.
