Sharp, Vibrant Images

Wow your customers with eye-popping prints. With a high-accuracy carriage and table, minimum ink drop size of 3 pL, precise table height adjustment, and dressable platens, the RICOH Ri 1000 delivers beautifully crisp, high resolution images up to 1200 x 1200 dpi.

'Walk-Up' Ready With Automated Maintenance

The RICOH Ri 1000 is the only walk-up ready DTG printer in the industry. While other DTG printers require frequent maintenance, the RICOH Ri 1000 saves time by automating white ink agitation, self-cleaning functions, and continuous monitoring of ink supply and air levels. For maintenance functions that are not automated, the RICOH Ri 1000’s built-in Interactive Operation Guide alerts users, sending them reminders to complete necessary tasks. The result is a printer that is low-maintenance and ready to print at any time.

Built-In Interactive Operation Guide With Smart Alerts

To make maintenance even easier, the RICOH Ri 1000 features a built-in Interactive Operation Guide. Accessible through the machine's spacious 7" touchscreen display, the interactive guide provides smart alerts reminding you when to perform routine manual maintenance tasks. Recognized for these cutting-edge features, the RICOH Ri 1000 direct-to-garment printer earned its designation as a RED HOT Technology in 2019.

Time-Proven Quality & Reliability

A CES 2019 Innovation Award honoree, the RICOH Ri 1000 is built to world-class quality standards. It offers rugged, industrial-strength steel construction and reliable, time-proven components. Enjoy dependable, industry-leading functionality with features like the high-performance Ricoh-built print engine and print heads. The RICOH Ri 1000 is a workhorse ready to fill demanding jobs for years to come.

Quick-Change Platens for Versatility & Ease of Use

With the RICOH Ri 1000, changing platens is a snap. Quick-change magnetic platens, available in multiple styles and sizes up to an extra-large 16" x 19.6", provide a variety of print options and easily snap on and off the machine with virtually no downtime. Dressable platen design makes garments easier to load, prevents ink bleed, and helps garments lay flatter for higher accuracy when printing.

Cover your monthly payment with just one order

Did you know you can cover your monthly payment AND make a profit with just one order of custom shirts

Let’s breakdown the math:

A typical wholesale t-shirt costs $2.00. Depending on the image you’re printing, the ink can cost around $1.00 per shirt, which equates to a total of about $3.00 per shirt.

On average, most shirts with a full-color custom design sell for $25 per shirt if sold individually.

That means your profit potential is approximately $22!

With that in mind, one small order of 12 shirts is enough to cover your monthly payment!

Starting your first printing business?

Are you excited to start your first t-shirt printing business but are hesitant because of the learning curve or are worried that you won’t be able to see a quick return on your investment?

Whether you’re a creative graphic artist who wants to build your own brand or are a business savvy entrepreneur who wants to profit from a desirable industry, the RICOH Ri 1000 comes with all of the accessories and support that you’ll need to get your business off the ground quickly.

With such great support, you won't find such low monthly payments and 0% financing anywhere else. So, if you’re ready to make your t-shirt business a reality, click here to qualify for interest free financing and payments as low as $249/month.

Do you want to expand your embroidery or screen-printing business with DTG?

Do you already own an apparel decoration business, but have to turn away orders for DTG?

Turning away orders puts less money in your pocket and also turns away potential customers that you could upsell with your other services. Not to mention, outsourcing your services is very risky because of unpredictable turnarounds and no control over the product quality.

If you really want to own a full-service printing business that can fulfill all of your customer’s requests while keeping your profits in-house, then adding DTG to your existing printing business is a no brainer, especially with such low monthly payments compared to your monthly profit potential.

With the popularity and quality of DTG combined with 0% financing, you’ll be sure to keep your customers happy and see a quick return on your new investment, especially with low monthly payments.

Are you a commercial printing business that wants to add new product lines to expand your capacity?

Whether you’re a commercial business that already owns DTG machines or are seeking to expand your printing business with this new technology, RICOH Ri 1000 DTG printers are the best quality printer in their class and offer the best value, allowing you to expand.

As a commercial printer, you know that the more variety you are able to print on with the most mediums will allow you to dominate the printing market and land other huge commercial clients. Not to mention, you won't have to pay any interest when you qualify for our 0% financing.
