I've never seen a digital printers sheets lay so flat. We always have some wave or curl. I do have a interesting question. If anyone is at liberty to comment. I spoke to my sales guy about banner (27.5") printing and he's not 100% sure how to bill it. He seams pretty sure it can't go as 1 click. I will say I was pretty pleased to hear the cost of a single click sub .03. A second question if anyone could comment on the process for front/back sheet registration adjustments? It seems a tad cryptic. Do you print out a template and then measure? Our current machine you just place it on the scanner and the machine calculates everything.
    With our 9100 the banner sheets are charged as 2 clicks per side, so a duplexed banner sheet would be charged at 4 clicks. As far as front to back registration, there are 2 ways to go about it. In the paper library you can go to the advanced settings for that paper and numbers 001 through 004 are you positioning on the sheet. I've done this with everything in my library. But even then sometimes things are off a little front to back so then I use the job properties window under the finishing tab and check the image shift box, then you can fine tune. I usually move the "back" "Y" axis, but good practice would be to move the back a little one way and the front a little the other way to keep everything centered on the sheet.

      As far as registration on the 9100 it is quite good. I have yet to have any front to back alignment issues that couldn't be handled within the Fiery by shifting the image a hair

They were surprised that the machine was miss aligned and causing wear and tear. Really? Started to look for replacement. Got Ricoh 9110. No comparison to J75 or even 3100. Ricoh service is awsome. We increased the runs on the 9110 because it can handle it, and then some.
        Sounds a bit like our Xerox team. I can't tell you how many times I called one of our machines in because the registration couldn't be straightened out, and it walked every few hundred impressions. Even with setup of both the SIQA alignment and the Fiery tray alignment still wasn't in spec. Couldn't get the techs to acknowledge a problem. So many emails back and forth to our sales rep and service manager. Finally got the specialist out after so much belly-aching. Turns out a baffle was bent.

          Anyone use one of these Ricoh for envelopes...#10, A2, A7, etc? I find the J75 to not be that great except for larger envelopes.

            I have had ZERO luck running #10's on our 9100. Ricoh says it will ... but our sales rep told us beforehand that it was very difficult. I know there are people out there doing it but I haven't been able to figure it out yet

              Yeah #10s and small sizes on the J75 sometime work, but sometimes wrinkle, or jam constantly, or you need to open the flaps. Usually a hassle so we get tired of messing with it. We have other printers to run envelopes but they are much slower and more expensive to use. Its unfortunate because 9x12s and 10x13s usually rock on the J75.

              Was just curious because we are looking at maybe a replacement envelope printing solution and thought we might be able to kill two birds with one Ricoh.

                I have yet to get #10's to work right in my 7110 either, even with the flap out they run like poop. 6x9's and up do run through it ok.

                  Yeah as they say, your mileage may vary. This may really actually be one of those cases of "it's the paper". I've had customers on both 9100's and 7100's run #10's quite well and others who give up. I think a lot of it depends on the quality of the envelopes themselves, as in 'you get what you pay for'. Of course I'm assuming you are disabling skew detect and double-sheet feed? You might try Columbian White Wove 24# (#CO125) but only 100 at a time and with a lower process speed. Same with National Envelope White Wove (03982) Printmaster, also 24#. There are a couple others that Ricoh has validated but the common denominator seems to be 24#. These things are marketed as having the ability to print onto envelopes but they're not envelope printers.

                    The 9100/9110 is the only machine we were able to run heavily textured stocks on. We're talking Classic Columns and coarse felts. We haven't found a stock we can't run. Quality and registration are incredible. My one and only complaint is the cables in the drawers could be heavier. Overload with a heavy coated stock and you can break them. I haven't seen another machine that could offer so much for the money.

                      What jam code do you get? There will be JXXX on the top of the jam screen.
                      Warning I am a Ricoh tech.

                        I've had had very little success with running #10 envelopes on our C7110. Any square, catalog or I can't only suggest that you try to run it flap open with the flap being the tail edge. As long as you have the minimum 5.5" for the length you should be able to run.

                          The flap open is what kills #10's for me, I have tried many brands including printmaster and they all stop on the vacuum belt right before the fuser and right after the transfer roller if they get past the vacuum drawer feed.

                            Yah, we have had our 9100 for about 6 months and I think the techs have replaced the cables at least once in all of the drawers so far, maybe twice in a couple. It does print Classic Columns almost better than our offset does. It truly does an amazing job on heavy textures

                              I will try to find some time to run some #10's and tell you what code I am getting

                                Once we got the 9110 we started to run more envelopes through it. Had really good luck with #10, A2, A7. We run the envelopes both ways. One is when we buy open flap, second is when we open them ourselves before we run. Small lifts in two trays works good for us.
