RICOH Ri 100 Direct to Garment (DTG) Printer
The RICOH Ri 100 Direct to Garment (DGT) Printer is ideal for startup businesses, print-for-pay service providers,higher educational organizations, mall kiosks, event planners, bookstores, clubs and gift shops. You can produce short runs or one-of-a-kind, personalized products such as: T-shirts, polo shirts, tote bags, pillow covers, art projects and more. Outfit a school team, sell items at fundraisers, print affordable travel mementos, develop event-themed items, or apply your creativity in other ways. The compact Ri 100 includes software and an optional stackable print finisher—everything you need to offer on-demand garment printing.
With a low acquisition cost and “plug-and-play” design, the Ri 100 provides an affordable, rapid way to generate revenue. Connect the printer to a Windows®PC, Mac® computer or Windows® tablet you already own. Insert either standard or high-yield water-based CMYK ink cartridges into the Ri 100, and turn it on.In minutes, you’re ready to print and deliver items on the spot—your own designs, stock images or customer-supplied images.
Some DTG printers are expensive and complicated to operate, leaving room for errors that can increase costs. For example, handling loose, wet fabric is something you don’t need to do with the Ri 100. With no experience or special training, you’ll be printing immediately using the print cassette trays that simplify every step. After you prepare an item on a cassette tray and insert it into the printer, the Ri 100 measures height and adjusts itself automatically for every print—ensuring more accurate printing. If you want to adjust the height manually, you simply press a button. Operate with multiple trays, and you can be preparing one tray while another is in the printer and another is curing in the finisher.
Attract customers with a colorful display that showcases your fabric creations
Set up the Ricoh Ri 100 DTG printer in a window or in an attractive work area and surround it with eye-catching samples. The printer’s small footprint of 15.7 inches x 27.5 inches allows you to move it easily, should you want to take it to an event or relocate shop displays. Print coverage is up to 8.3 inches x 11.69 inches on 50 percent to 100 percent cotton fabric that is up to .28 inches thick. The optional stackable finisher, which matches the printer’s footprint, provides two functions: it presses the fabric before printing to remove wrinkles and fixes the ink to the fabric after printing. Our finisher is cool to the touch to help ensure your safety. A finisher is required, whether you choose our model or another solution.
Shorten the time from design to print with the included software
While you can use software such as Adobe® PhotoShop® or PowerPoint with the Windows®-compatible printer driver that comes with the Ri 100,you don’t need to buy a separate design tool. The Ri 100 comes with RICOH Design Software, which accepts images via LAN/WiFi, USB or directly from an Android™ or iOS smartphone or tablet. Be productive on every order with simple preprint steps:
Maintain superb quality on each unique,personalized product
Printhead technology is key to consistent quality and low maintenance.The Ri 100 comes with Ricoh stainless steel heads that generate three sizes of drops to ensure ink strength and flexibility. Depending on the print mode you choose, you can print striking, colorfast images with 600 dpi x 600 dpi or 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution. Ricoh RI 100 DTG printer’s bidirectional printing allows you to print a finished image in less time than devices with unidirectional movement. If you want to expand your fabric and media choices or print on an area larger than allowed by the Ri 100, consider the Epson F2100.
