    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Ricoh release Gel based Printers

Ricoh has introduced a gel-based colour system instead of the familiar inkjet technology. This allows the devices to print at up to 30 pages-per-minute, according to the firm, and makes them an economical alternative to inkjets.

2 Year Warranty

The company is also backing the models with a two-year on-site service warranty.


The new GelSprinter Aficio GX3000, GX3050N and GX5050N are the first printers to be launched using this technology, according to Ricoh. The A4 models are capable of producing up to 30 pages-per-minute in both colour, and black and white.

“The technology has the speed of a laser, but the purchase cost is closer to an inkjet,” said Ricoh senior product manager, Helen Berentzen.

Running costs are also lower, she added.

Pigment Based Colors

Developed by Ricoh, the GelSprinter process uses pigment-based colours that sit on the surface of the paper instead of soaking into the fibres. This produces a fast-drying and waterproof finish that does not smudge, blur or bleed, the company said.

Duplex Printing

It also enables duplex printing, allowing firms to save paper by using both sides, something that is difficult with inkjets. (Canon produces double sided inkjet printers.)

All three Aficio models support this as standard.

Swap out Warranty

Confident of the technology’s reliability, Ricoh is offering a two-year, on-site warranty for the new printers, and will swap out any unit that cannot be repaired.

“Not many suppliers are able to do this at this end of the market,” said Berentzen.
