Ricoh is offering businesses the chance to win a Ricoh Ri 100 direct-to-garment (DTG) printer package, an entry-level solution for the personalized apparel market. To enter the free competition, businesses should visit www.winwithricoh.com, fill in their details, and answer a few simple questions correctly.

The Ricoh Ri 100 has a small footprint and simple print workflow – it’s as compact and as easy to use as a standard desktop printer – but with lots of creative potential. In just minutes, it can print colorful designs, bold slogans, and even sharp photographs directly to T-shirts, sweatshirts, shopping bags, cushion covers, and more, personalized for every customer. It’s compact and fast enough to offer a portable, reliable solution for events and exhibitions, or as a permanent addition to a retail shop or print business.

“The personalized products sector offers significant development potential,” says Nick Macfarlane, a direct-to-garment sales specialist at Ricoh UK. “Digital textile printing meets the needs of today’s consumers and, crucially, print businesses. It’s agile and versatile, allowing short and single runs, and lots of design options. You can flexibly respond to your customers’ changing needs and deliver high-quality promotional and personalized garments quickly and without the constraints of minimum order quantities.

“We’re delighted to launch this competition to help a new or existing business explore this exciting, creative application.”

Ricoh DTG systems also offer sustainability benefits — thanks to their eco-friendly water-based inks – meeting another requirement of the modern marketplace. The direct-printing method also means no waste transfer materials, which additionally reduces consumables costs. They’ve been engineered by Ricoh, a print specialist with decades of manufacturing experience, to provide maximum potential in a small package, giving businesses a fast, straightforward way to start selling wearable personalized products. It’s a fun, creative market that could be potentially lucrative for any print business.

To enter the competition, please visit www.winwithricoh.com The deadline for entries is 17:30 PM (GMT) on 8th September 2020.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
