Main Features

Astonishing Full-Color Results

  • Achieve maximum clarity and sharpness for photographic-quality prints and smoother gradations. This printer offers true 1200 x1200 dpi resolution which many other printers in this class simply can’t match.
  • Choose the right resolution for any color document. With 4-bit color and interpolated resolution up to 9600 x 600 dpi, it is easy to optimize color quality for shadow detail and skin tones.
  • Print sharp, crisp photographic-quality documents quickly and easily with Glossy Mode.
  • Emulate the look of output from other devices, including offset printers and popular laser printers. Plus, support for PANTONE®, ColorSync, ICM and custom ICC profiles provides even more control over your prints.
  • Sharpen images with new PxP™ toner. Its wider color gamut and smaller particles enable the Ricoh Aficio SP C821DN Series to capture subtle changes in color and tone.

Increase Speed and Performance

  • Create reports, plans, presentations, brochures, and more with 50 pagesper- minute speed for full-color, black & white or mixed output.
  • Handle larger file sizes, complex applications, specialized fonts and other graphics-intensive demands with a high-performance 1 GHz Intel Celeron® Controller.
  • Enable instant reprints and other convenient print-on-demand capabilities while increasing font storage space with a standard 80 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD).
  • Minimize waiting with a first color print time of eight seconds, or seven seconds for black & white. Warm-up time is less than a minute.
  • Let everyone share a single device without constantly reloading paper. This printer holds up to 3,200 sheets for demanding workloads.
  • Reduce the risk of misplaced output. The 4-Bin Mailbox provides shared access to the printer while keeping documents separate.

More Media Choices

  • Print postcards, direct mail and other documents on heavy stock. All paper trays accept weights up to 140 lb. Index in simplex mode and 90 lb. Index in duplex mode.
  • Print packaging comps and proof sheets up to 11" x 17". For full-bleed 11" x 17" proofs, use the Bypass Tray, which prints sizes up to 12" x 18".
  • Energize event promotions with full-color banners. The Ricoh Aficio SP C821DN Series can print banners 12" wide and up to 49.6" long.
  • Reduce the risk of errors and reprints with a convenient driver that lets users select the correct paper weight for any job.

Powerful In-Line Finishing

  • Produce high-impact, full-color training, education and marketing materials with folding and saddle-stitching using the 1,000-Sheet Booklet Finisher.
  • Staple reports, plans and proposals with the 3,000-Sheet Finisher. Add the Hole Punch Unit so output can be inserted directly into three-ring binders.
  • Align finished documents for easy pick-up with the optional Output Jogger Unit, which can be added to the 3,000-Sheet Finisher.

Durable, Dependable, Reliable

  • Get unbeatable value from this printer’s combination of competitive pricing and low operating costs.
  • Ensure smooth connectivity with a long list of standard and optional interfaces.
  • Expect reliable, repeatable quality, day after day. This printer’s monthly duty cycle outlasts competitive devices.
  • Reduce interruptions with a shorter, soft curve paper path that can handle heavy stocks with ease and makes it simple for users to remove misfeeds.
  • Minimize interruptions with long-lasting, high-yield consumables.

Improve Security and Management

  • Ensure accountability for every color page you print. Precise job tracking supports accurate chargeback and billing.
  • Protect confidential documents even if the hard drive is stolen with the optional DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS). It overwrites latent data on the hard drive after every job.
  • Strengthen information security with an HDD encryption option that makes it virtually impossible for hackers to gain access to stored files.
  • Make printer management much more convenient with instant e-mail alerts for administrators when the printer runs low on supplies or an error occurs.
  • Produce detailed activity reports and submit meter reads automatically with @Remote Intelligent Remote Management System.
