Cimpress is buying a Ricoh Pro VC80000 high speed web-fed inkjet press. The technology platform will support Cimpress’s business VistaPrint, as it expands its capabilities and streamlines production with greater automation at one of its lead factories.

The Pro VC80000 is designed to produce direct mail, colour books, catalogues, magazines, and general commercial print applications on a wide range of media up to 300 gsm.

The latest investment builds on Cimpress’s adoption of toner-based technologies, including the RICOH Pro C9500 within the group’s European operations.


Robert Keane, founder, chair and CEO of Cimpress, said, “Customer service is central to everything we do, which is why we are collaborating with Ricoh, a company with a similar dedication to the customer experience. Working together, we have been able to identify a powerful production solution in the form of the Pro VC80000, which supports our responsiveness and efficiency, providing what our customers need when they need it.”

Koji Miyao, president, Ricoh Graphic Communications, and senior corporate officer added, “We are delighted that a company so experienced in high speed inkjet is investing in Ricoh’s flagship high speed inkjet system. Our worldwide collaboration with Cimpress is based on the principle of co-innovation; both parties collaborating for a mutually successful future. The dedicated global team approach that we provide to our global partners like Cimpress has been instrumental to the continuing success of this flourishing partnership.”
