Mobile Freedom and Bold Performance
As business moves faster, we’re all using mobile devices to keep pace — changing how we work, and in many cases, where we work. Ricoh continues to do its part, with new innovations offering more freedom and agility, so you can perform more everyday tasks in less time. The RICOH® SP C252DN Color Laser Printer offers standard wireless printing and mobile printing capabilities so you can access information where you need it, when you need it. The SP C252DN offers high-quality laser printing for small offices and workgroups in a compact footprint so you can place it anywhere from retail counters to executive offices. You can even include the SP C252DN as part of a Ricoh Managed Document Services (MDS) strategy and measure how much time and money it can save for your organization.
Deliver up to 21 pages-per-minute in color, black-and-white or mixed output for consistent, reliable performance during every print job
Create high-quality business documents with crisp lines and vivid colors with true 600 x 600 dpi to 2,400 x 600 dpi equivalent resolution without losing any output speed.
Enhance productivity and minimize wait times for prints with first print speeds of less than 14 seconds for full color and black and white, and fast warm-up times of 30 seconds or less
Versatile Connectivity with Standard Wireless, Ethernet and USB networking
Print from your tablet or Smartphone with the Ricoh Smart Device Print & Scan App
Print two-sided documents with standard automatic duplexing and reduce paper use, energy consumption and overall costs.

Replace top-loading AIO print cartridges in seconds without IT support. Return depleted cartridges for recycling at no cost.
Accommodate thicker paper stocks with up to 42 lb. Bond/83 lb. Index and meet a wider range of print demands, including labels, transparencies and envelopes.
Install the optional 500-sheet Paper Feed Unit beneath the printer and increase paper supply to 751 sheets without increasing the footprint—making it ideal for home offices, cubicles, kiosks and retail counters where space is limited.
Handle special or single-page jobs with ease without having to reconfigure paper sizes in the Bypass Tray.
Manage printer functions, error conditions and maintenance settings with the intuitive, easy-to-use control panel.
