In addition to adding joy, surprise, and greater convenience to our lives,
we are expanding the potential for ways to utilize paper.

Creating a closer connection to the reader's imagination

Send direct mail with a personalized message for every intended recipient. Or create a picture book around images of a special someone or event. Ricoh, working in collaboration with commercial printers specializing in small-run print jobs who can tailor their work to the intended readership, makes it possible for readers to experience printed matter that creates a personal connection.

Display the necessary information anywhere it is needed.

In the industrial sector, Ricoh's unique technology for rewriting label text is allowing information to be visualized exactly as required at manufacturing and logistics sites. We intend to use this new paper-based method of communicating information to improve the efficiency of worksites while contributing to the creation of an environment where workers can demonstrate their creativity to the full.

Designs that help devices connect with people

Our revolutionary hybrid media combines RF tags with rewritable sheets so that information written to the RF tags is readable by both machines and people. Although RFID systems are contributing to the automation of logistics tasks, a dedicated reader is typically required to view the information they contain. To solve this problem, Ricoh introduced the RECO-View system. Awarded the Good Design Award in 2014, this product has been praised for connecting devices to humans as well as for its excellent design.
