In Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Ricoh Europe offers its Ricoh Pro C7200X press customers Touch7 color guides illustrating the neon yellow and pink toners available for use in the press. The five-color Touch7 guides show exactly how the C7200X press produces the 1520 colors available and are offered to Ricoh owners to enable them to illustrate the design possibilities with their presses.

Ricoh Touch7 color guide is simple and logical for designers

Richard Ainge, Touch7 inventor and company founder, discussing the Ricoh relationship, said, “These beautiful color guides, the first available anywhere, demonstrate how neon toners can be used to produce bright, vibrant, and punchy results. Neon toners, which extend the gamut of the Ricoh press, range from subtle pastels to deeply saturated reds, violets, and blues. The Touch7 color guide, together with the fifth color station available on the Ricoh press, is simple and logical for designers to specify. It yields remarkable and reproducible results.”

Ainge continued, “Touch7 color guides provide printers, agencies, graphic designers, and brands with 1520 neon and pastel colors, all produced on the Ricoh platform. Before Touch7, creatives were forced to use trial-and-error methods to match the Pantone Neon and Pastel Guide, a system designed only for use on litho presses and containing only 200 colors.”


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.
