KANSAS CITY, MO. – October 18, 2018 – AlphaGraphics Kansas City expands its color gamut and capabilities with the addition of a Ricoh 7210sx. Customers have more options for print media thanks to the new digital press’s 5th Color Station’s ability to print beyond traditional CYMK. Also, this press allows for printing on specialty and textured papers, in addition to over-sized sheets up to 27.5 inches.
“The decision to invest in the Ricoh 7210sx was based on giving our customers a new way to create pieces that will help them stand out among their competition, and it helps set AlphaGraphics Kansas City apart from other print communications companies,” says Haley Haar, AlphaGraphics Kansas City president. “Our customers depend on us for unparalleled quality and consistency, which is why we add new presses and are working toward our G7 Color Management Certification. G7 reflects color matching performance and lets customers know they are working with the best printers in the marketplace.”
AlphaGraphics Kansas City will begin with white, clear and pink as their expanded color options, beyond the typical CMYK, in the Ricoh 7210sx 5th Color Station. White, used as a color or applied as a base layer, retains color integrity, mimics metallic printing and achieves vivid effects on transparencies, adhesives and dark colored media. Clear produces mesmerizing images and enhances product photography and brand logos on business cards, brochures, tickets and direct mail. Pink delivers bold colors ideal for point-of-purchase, direct mail and packaging, plus multiplies the range of vibrant oranges, reds and brand colors that can be matched by using unique blends.
Beyond expanding color options and effects, AlphaGraphics Kansas City’s Ricoh 7210sx lets customers print marketing and business materials on specialty stock, including magnetic and synthetic papers, adhesive, metallic, linen and more. “With the Ricoh 7210sx, we can meet our customers’ need for unique, eye-catching options in addition to adding capabilities on their short-run, on-demand custom packaging, book wraps, menus and promotional materials projects,” says Haar.
