Forest Print is proud to announce the arrival of its brand new state-of-the-art Ricoh Pro C651EX digital printer. We’ve used many different digital printers over the years, but we firmly believe this Ricoh model is cutting edge 2013 printing technology at its best.
As you are probably well aware, Forest Print cares about the environment, and that is the first reason why we chose Ricoh over the other major digital printing brands. Like Forest Print, Ricoh is dedicated to creating eco-friendly products, producing as small an ecological footprint as possible, and staying loyal to being carbon neutral. The Ricoh Pro C651EX is a ‘carboNZero’ certified product, and Ricoh itself is the first technology based service organisation in Australia to achieve carboNZero certification after being approved by this internationally accredited program.
Now for the printer itself – this beautiful piece of machinery produces the highest quality digital prints we’ve ever witnessed on a digital printer. With a printing resolution of 1200 x 4800 dpi, your print jobs will always be a precise reproduction. To tell you the truth, a lot of people think this is as close as you can get to the quality of offset printing in a digital context. Here are just a few more reasons why we love this digital printer:
The Ricoh Pro C651EX is fast, yet it’s also very stable. How fast you ask? It can print up to 65 A4 colour pages per minute, or 5,000 business cards in the same amount of time. Even though it’s lightning quick, as the machine only uses one large roller, there is a much smaller chance for errors to occur, and the resulting works are of very high quality. The Ricoh also has a scanner function, which allows us to print if no digital file exists, even if it’s from a very thick book. Plus, it has an automatic document feeder that scans piles of full-colour, greyscale, or black and white images at the rate of 75 per minute. Awesome!
The next aspect of the Ricoh Pro C651EX that blew us away is its ability to print on a range of different paper stocks, with thicknesses of 300gsm simplex and 256gsm duplex not being an issue. Unlike other digital printers, the special toner can sink into this thicker paper. This is great for Forest Print because we love to print on recycled paper, much of which is quite rough and doesn't usually bode very well in a digital printing context. This oil-free fusing technology is what helps to create such offset-like reproductions.
Lastly, Forest Print’s new digital printer has the ability to finish complete printing projects. It has 100-sheet multi-positioned stapling for booklets, it can do saddle stitching, folding, and it has the ability to punch holes of different sizes for 50-100 sheet documents. Give Forest Print a call about your newest printing job, and we’ll show you the latest in eco-friendly digital printing technology.
