PrintShop Mail Suite

This approach to creating a tailored document makes processing mail merges far quicker and simpler than using Microsoft Word. Not only can you place data in different places in a document; you can also map images according to your data, instead of using a pre-printed document. PrintShop Mail Suite is low cost and easy to use, and allows you to quickly offer new services to existing clients.


A central point of control for your entire printing environment, MicroPress takes away the need to manage each printing press as an individual item, and lets you control every machine from a single console. MicroPress is simple to use, and ensures you handle jobs in the most efficient way possible, with less downtime and immediate engine start-up.


Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme

A growing number of print service providers are actively looking to differentiate themselves by extending their environmental credentials and applying for certifications such as CSR, ISO 14001, FSC and PEFC. Ricoh's Carbon Balanced Printing Programme enables you to calculate the carbon footprint of each print job, reduce or optimise it wherever possible and, finally, to off set any remaining, unavoidable emissions.

The Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printing Programme has been verified by the British Standards Institution (BSI). As a result you can guarantee that your customers' printed materials are carbon-neutral and environmentally responsible.

The programme has three steps to analyse, optimise and neutralise your carbon emissions.

  1. Analyse your current carbon emissions
  2. Optimise your carbon footprint
  3. Neutralise your remaining and unavoidable carbon emissions

As a participant in the Carbon Balanced Printing Programme you can differentiate yourself as an environmentally responsible business by being certified as an official 'Ricoh Carbon Balanced Printer'.
