Use a powerful garment printer to reach more customers
Bring in more jobs and offer print-on-demand with the RICOH Ri 3000/Ri 6000 Direct to Garment (DTG) printers — perfect for opening new print shops, expanding your services or keeping more work in-house. The Ri 6000 can print full-color 12" x 10" graphics on light garments in just 27 seconds, saving you time so you can be more productive.
Expand your apparel print selection for bigger profits
Offer more variety than the competition with inkjet technology that lets you print directly onto shirts, hats, canvas bags and more. Print on natural fibers, light poly and dark garments with up to 50/50 blends. Additionally, the automated table-height adjustment makes it easy to print on thicker garments.
Deliver the high-quality printing customers demand
Inspire customers to keep coming back with vivid, lifelike color output. CMYK-plus-white technology lets you lay a white base beneath full-color designs to make images jump off of dark garments. The included AnaRipTM software and stainless steel, industrial-grade print heads give you the high-definition graphics your customers want.
Reduce print costs with a high-volume, durable printer
Save on operating costs with a durable and reliable printer. Now, you can achieve higher output with print heads rated at 100 billion actuations. Automated maintenance and cleaning add even more life and help keep your printer ready to go — increasing uptime so you can stay productive.
Simplify garment printing with fewer steps
With the Ri 3000/Ri 6000 printers, setup is faster and easier than it is with screen printing. You save significant time by moving from design to print in fewer steps. Simply open your file in AnaRip, place and size your design, preview your work and press print.
Create customized prints
AnaRip saves you more time by automatically performing color separation. And with automatic color adjustment, you can preview the final product to avoid wasting material on test prints. Enhance your customer's experience with optional Spark software, and provide instant price quotes and customize prints even further — apply drop shadows, add texture and more.

We'll give you a competitive edge by getting you up and running fast and providing continuous support. A certified Ricoh trainer will join you onsite for printer setup and training.
