As part of a recent campaign to demonstrate how neon colors available on the Ricoh Pro 72xx series presses can be used, Ricoh conducted a marketing campaign to showcase the neon colors available with their presses. In addition, the campaign involved providing printed neon embellishment samples to creatives, agencies, corporate marketers, and print service providers. 

The neon envelope used to hold the actual Ricoh printed samples utilized both Ricoh Touch7 color guides for vector colors and Touch7 images prepared using the Touch7 Photo plugin for Photoshop.

Ricoh sample envelope stands out from others

Discussing the campaign, Mark Geeves, director of Sales and Marketing for Color-Logic, the worldwide distributor of Touch7 software, said, “Ricoh Europe reached out to Touch7 to create an envelope design that would make their sample envelope stand out from other marketing pieces these businesses receive. The final result was an outstanding envelope that matched the samples inside and dramatically demonstrated the Ricoh Touch7 Neon System.”

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.
