"The RICOH Pro C7100X really leveled the playing field for us. Instead of watching jobs for decals, short-run book jacket covers, oversized brochures and loyalty cards walk right out the door because we didn't have the in-house capabilities, we were suddenly able to keep those dollars in-house and grow."

Graphics and Marketing (GAM)


As a beta test site for the RICOH Pro C7100X, GAM put the printer through its paces and proved the value it brought to the business and to their customers' businesses.

The Pro C7100X is five-station digital color production print system that supports clear toner, white toner, oversize sheet printing and synthetic and specialty media. Using Pro C7100X capabilities such as variable data, near-offset quality and inline finishing, GAM can produce premium quality materials quickly and affordably.

With all the information and support that comes with the system, sales and operations can get up to speed quickly:

  • The 5th Color Kit contains a file prep and sales tip guide, a sample book and full-size application print samples.

  • Fifth-color print samples enable GAM to produce samples for their sales reps to show to clients.

  • Sales tools include sell sheets and a brochure that link the printer's capabilities to tangible business benefits.

  • Video tutorials walk users through file setup and ways to get the most benefit from white and clear toners.

  • Access to Ricoh's Business Booster site provides resources and ongoing education.
