Ri 100 on desktop

Get up and running in minutes

The compact 15.7" x 27.5" Ri 100 ensures location flexibility, and it requires no venting. Set up the printer in a window display or on a table or desk. Connect it to a Windows® PC, Mac® computer or Windows® tablet, insert either standard or high-yield ink cartridges and turn it on.

ink drops

Efficient, reliable imaging technology

Our durable stainless steel printheads generate three sizes of drops to ensure ink strength and flexibility. The heads print bidirectionally ― not one way like some direct-to-garment printers ― so you can complete jobs quickly with the choice of vibrant 600 dpi x 600 dpi or 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi resolution.

Printing software on tablet

Flexible design options

Create images with the included RICOH Design Software. Or, use another software product, like Adobe® PhotoShop®, that works with the Windows®-compatible print driver. Use stock images, text, illustrations or customer-supplied graphics. Set up jobs by selecting the garment type, image size and direction, and file type. Then preview for accuracy before sending files to the printer. Print from Android® and iOS® smartphones or tablets or via LAN/WiFi or USB.

Press tray

As easy as press, print and cure

Mount garments on the cassette tray once for pressing, printing and curing. For each step, just insert the cassette into the optional, stackable heater/finisher or the printer. The finisher*, which is cool to the touch, presses your fabric before printing to remove wrinkles and after printing, fixes the ink to the fabric. For each print, the Ri 100 measures height and adjusts itself automatically. Use multiple trays to increase print volume.*A finisher is required.

Printed tote bags

A fast, low-cost alternative to screen printing

Screen printing, which is designed for long runs, requires far more time to set up and complete jobs. Each color involves a separate screen and press pass. Plus, the upfront investment is significant, unlike the affordable Ri 100, which is ideal for one-of-a-kind items or short runs that you can print on demand.
