Transitioning to digital color printing can be a daunting proposition. “Will I be able to meet my performance demands?” “What new skills will I need?” “Am I making the right technology choice?”

We understand these concerns. That’s why we’ve created the RICOH IP5000 General Production Platform (GP) inkjet printers – to make it easy to smoothly transition from monochrome to digital color.

IP5000 GP models enable full-color, monochrome and MICR printing on a wide range of paper stocks and at a variety of speeds. Colorful graphics and personalized printing makes information easier to understand, which can help open new revenue opportunities in fast-changing markets.

Realize your business’ potential

Your printer should keep up with changing workplace and market demands—now and in the future. Today, you might be managing short runs of monochrome documents on preprinted stock. Tomorrow, you may need to add long runs of full-color documents on plain white paper or bid for print-on-demand jobs. You’ll want the flexibility of a printer that can keep up with your business.

See how United Fulfillment Services used the increased power and output quality of multiple InfoPrint 5000s to improve customer service and oversight—all while keeping overall costs down.

Versatility is at the core of the Ricoh IP5000 GP design:

  • Choose from U, L, I and H configurations to make the most out of available floor space—and give operators room to do their jobs
  • Please even the most fickle of customers with  on-demand drying features to print on a wide range of stocks
  • Tailor the platform with three options for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) printing and be assured of secure and efficient documents.

The flexibility of IP5000 GP models makes them ideal for transactional, commercial and book printers, as well as direct mailers.

Blossom with color

Capitalize on digital color printing to deliver the compelling results that your business needs. Expand your potential with standardized color matching for unmatched, vibrant graphics. In addition to offering industry-leading color quality, IP5000 GP models also come with unique imaging technology designed to reduce errors, rework and waste. Advanced ink management tools minimize ink consumption so you can put your money toward your big ideas – not your printing costs.

A printer that changes when you do

Keep up with change while controlling costs. IP5000 GP models let you upgrade speeds and incorporate platform enhancements without having to replace your entire printer. And our in-field technicians can upgrade your system to help you meet your evolving needs without having to replace your existing environment.

Meet tight deadlines

Narrow print windows? No problem. Make tight deadlines a thing of the past with high-throughput printing. And advanced media handling capability and improved ink drying time mean that many stocks can be run at a variety of speeds.


Broaden your appeal

Reach new customers and take on new types of jobs by supporting a greater number of ink types, media types and file formats. Opt for integrated on-demand MICR with color or monochrome, and save space and energy at the same time. Gain full-color support for process and spot colors, International Color Consortium (ICC)–based color management and industry-standard image file formats. PANTONE PLUS certification gives you an ever-increasing range of color possibilities. We are G7 certified so you can count on consistent color. And you can print on heavy, light, treated and coated stocks to add flash to books, customer communications, direct marketing, and more.


Get up and running quickly

The IP5000 GP platform is designed to easily integrate into your existing environment. Support for the open Interchange Set/3 (IS/3) architecture means you can print Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) data streams correctly, even in multi-vendor environments.


Reduce costs

IP5000 GP models can help you control costs and save on printing. We’ve given the IP5000 GPs the longest-lasting printheads on the market, so you can avoid the time and costs of replacing printheads and stay focused on printing. Low water content inks reduce the amount of energy required for drying. In addition, dynamic variable drop size capabilities optimize the amount of ink used for each pixel on a page, so you use only as much ink as you need for each print job.


We Keep Your Business Moving

We know that downtime is money. And whether it’s shifting to a new printing solution or a faulty printer, you don’t have time – or money – to waste. That’s why we work with you to understand your particular needs and deliver the outstanding support you need to keep your printer – and your business – running for years to come. We’ve been doing this a long time, and when things go south, we’ll be here to help.
