Direct to Garment Printer RICOH Ri 3000
Professional Apparel Printing in 3 Easy Steps
Discover the shortest route from design to print with the new RICOH Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 printers. Our new generation of direct to garment printers deliver photo-quality prints directly onto garments. When your job calls for hundreds of full color prints or a custom one-off, your entire apparel printing process is now three simple steps: design, print, cure.
Design: The versatile RICOH Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 printers give you everything you need to print customized graphics on t-shirts, garments and more. Print files directly from a USB flash drive or any networked PC. Our printers also include the intuitive AnaRIP™ software that eliminates the color separation process, working seamlessly with your favorite graphic design software such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Corel Draw, etc., giving you full control of printing options including ink settings and image placement.
Print: The Ri 3000/Ri 6000 printers feature robust capabilities that can complete a full-color print in seconds and deliver eye-popping visuals on dark garments. Our specially formulated inks give you the flexibility to print on natural fabrics and synthetic blends including 100% light poly. Simply load your garment, preview the image on the console, and push the print button.
Cure: The final step in the process is to use a heat press or tunnel dryer to cure the ink into the garment. Heat curing ensures longevity and your finished prints will be colorfast, machine-washable, soft to the touch, and stretch without cracking.
