Ricoh Europe has announced the launch of gold and silver toners for the fifth color station of the Ricoh Pro C7200X digital press. The exciting additions significantly enhance digital print enhancement capability as brand owners increasingly look for differentiation and cut through in their printed communications. Specialist digital printers can increase revenue and broaden their product range with the new metallic effect toners. The gold and silver toners will be available in Europe from July. We have just learned on 16 June that the gold and silver toners will also be available in the Asia Pacific region from July as well. The distributor for the Ricoh digital presses in India is Monotech Systems India.

Ricoh toners deliver great visual impact for high value-added print

Developed for the fifth color station on the Ricoh Pro C7200X digital color sheet-fed press, the toners deliver great visual impact for high value added print. The additional colors transform a broad range of applications from catalogues, posters, flyers, direct mail, and brochures to business cards, greetings and Christmas cards, tickets, invitations, certificates, and packaging.

The new toners are retrofittable, enabling existing users to expand the capabilities of the Ricoh Pro C7200X presses they operate today.

Eef de Ridder, vice president, Graphic Communications Group, Ricoh Europe, says, “The gold and silver toners are being launched to meet evolving client needs in an ever-competitive marketplace. Graphic arts innovators are rightly looking for stunning digital print enhancement capabilities that quickly and cost efficiently help print stand out. These new toners enable the responsive production of a wide range of value added print with a gorgeous and special feel. As a result, commercial printers can help brands and designers open up exciting opportunities with highly creative jobs complete with a gold or silver wow factor.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
