    Help! Upgrading Versant and no clue

    Stream punch pro on the Ricoh's. I've got two. They're good. Suggest getting the cover interposer too to allow punching of pre printed or blank covers

    Help! Upgrading Versant and no clue

    You'll get it on a service contract and they'll keep it running for the duration of that contract, unless in an extreme/rare scenario where it becomes uneconomical for them to do so and they may wish to end the contract early. Issues around how long they last are for consideration only when...

    Help! Upgrading Versant and no clue

    All of the four big brands (Xerox, Canon, Ricoh, Konica Minolta) make very high quality machines which will do what you need. The biggest difference will be on their standard of service which often varies from place to place. You'll need to speak to other printers in your area to ask for...

    Help! Upgrading Versant and no clue

    Yeah I get it - but there are various different options and configurations for a press that you could fit into your 60k budget and would just be considered as part of the printer as far as the bureaucracy is concerned. You could potentially spec it with nice inline finishing options which open...

    4 staple booket maker? Square back folder?

    You could also get a GBC inline punch on a machine if you're doing a lot of bound documents that way.. the latest ones on some machines will do 2 punches per page meaning you can still impose onto a sheet and punch at the same time

    Help! Upgrading Versant and no clue

    My advice would be to think long and hard about what you want to produce and what finishing you'll need. Do you want to produce things you aren't doing at the moment? Is the current printer the weak link? Think about whether you want inline or offline finishing etc. I demoed the canon c910...

    V80 vs v2100

    This is a big no-no. Don’t accept samples. Go there in person and see the machine print your own example files that you want to print on it, and see how they are made into booklets using the inline booklet maker

    V80 vs v2100

    Sounds a bit back to front tbh if only your covers are in colour, and the contents are B/W then make the main machine B/W and get a small/basic colour machine for the covers. if you’re doing the booklet making inline then get a cover inserter for inserting the colour covers. You can get a...

    decent substrates for photobooks printed w. toner in Europe

    Hi folks, I'm a complete n00b when it comes to trying out new paper types, but I'm going to start experimenting soon. I'm looking for some suitable paper types to get good results printing photos with a digital laser press (Ricoh C5310). I'm in NL so I'd hope that many of the stocks available...

    Automatic front to back registration for Ricoh Pro C5200S

    thanks - and yes - in hindsight. at the end of the training when they asked if there was anything else I asked about tray alignment and he said to just leave that for now - if registration becomes an issue they'll send a tech out. I'll get them to come and go through it for now am playing with...

    Automatic front to back registration for Ricoh Pro C5200S

    on a similar subject but with the C5310.. I'm trying to do the auto adjustment for registration "align front to back images", and I can't make sense of how I'm supposed to line up the backgroud sheet and alignment sheets on the scanner. I can't follow the onscreen instructions or the user...

    Novice - buying a versant 80

    And check if the booklet maker will work in full offline mode so that you can print, trim and then feed into the booklet maker. I have Ricoh c5310's and got the booklet finisher as an afterthought more than anything. Also have the cover interposer and had assumed I could feed the full pre...

    KONICA MINOLTA C4070 PRICE

    Ok - to reiterate - your dealer has a conflict of interest here. Who knows if they even contacted the leasing company? They might be lying to you. Do you have a copy of the lease agreement? If so - look at the details of the leasing company and ring them yourself. I bet you signed the lease...

    Windows 11

    It took me a while for the shortcuts and layout of windows 8 to become second nature. Hated it at first. Was quite annoyed when Windows 10 then changed it all again. But I have to say, Windows 10 is rock solid. Hardly have to think about it. It just works and with an SSD is booted in seconds...

    Ricoh 7200 Keeps Hesitating...

    My Ricoh techs tell me to leave the fiery updates to them.. they're deeply skeptical of updates until proven stable

    Ricoh 7200 Keeps Hesitating...

    A lot of people with fierys forget that many Ricoh production machines also have an internal Ricoh controller with a Ricoh printer driver. Why don't you try printing the same documents via the Ricoh driver and see if the problem happens there too. Either way you'll probably be able to isolate...
