Visitors to Ricoh's Labelexpo booth are seeing how metallic effects can help them target growth market segments including labels, greeting cards, book covers, brochures, packaging and gift vouchers.

Partnering European paper and film coating specialist MDV Group, Ricoh is showcasing the capabilities of the fifth unit on the Ricoh Pro C7100X digital color sheetfed press. Application samples including labels, with silver as well as gold effects, and the brand new Neon Pink toner, will be shown on a range of media including synthetics.

Erwin Busselot, Business Innovations & Solutions Director, Commercial and Industrial Printing, Ricoh Europe, says: “The ability to produce predictable high quality metallic print will allow print service providers to expand their production portfolios and offer a greater array of creative and eye-catching results.”

Also being exhibited are sign and display applications produced on the Ricoh wide format Pro L4100 latex printer. This includes labels and indoor graphics for carpet and outdoor floor graphics for tarmac.

Ricoh is also presenting a wide range of top-coated thermal papers used wherever variable information needs to be added, in Hall 6 on Booth 6C28. They are ideal for the food industry as well as invoices, bank statements and tags, parking, entertainment and transportation tickets.
