Time Printing expands offering to new substrates to grow new revenue streams supported by Ricoh's technology and expertise
Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced Time Printing Solutions Provider (TP Solutions Provider), a family-owned commercial printer established in 1969, has expanded further into the wide format market, partnering with Ricoh to add capabilities and broaden revenue streams. With the addition of a RICOH Pro L4160, Colex Sharpcut 1631 SXC, EFI Pro 16h and Mimaki CG-130 FXII, TP gains the ability to produce a variety of exciting applications, including printing on eye-catching substrates, such as plywood, rock and magnets.
"Customer satisfaction has been at the core of our business for five decades," said Andy Poole, Owner and CEO, TP. "Our customers see incredible value in centralizing their print buying with fewer, more trusted partners who understand the value of a cohesive strategy that combines sheet-fed digital print and wide format. We wanted to build on the trust our customers have put in us over the years, bringing our signature reliability to new markets and types of applications. Now, with Ricoh in our corner, we are a one-stop shop for all types and printing and creative services."
TP was acquired by Andy and Dena Poole in 2015 with the mission to leverage its established past to build a bright future. It continues as a family-owned and operated local business serving the Sacramento region with more than 45 years of industry experience and is an active member of the Allied Printing Trades of Northern California.
Expanding into wide format – and new, attention-grabbing substrates – to become a one-stop, go-to partner for print buyers across many industries is a natural progression in today's commercial print world. Print buyers are increasingly interested in finding reliable, high quality partners that allow them to focus on core business needs and rest assured that their print will be efficient and eye-catching.
"Wide format has never been more accessible, both in terms of affordability and ease of use," said Sho Yamazaki, Vice President, Strategy & Marketing, Commercial Print Business, Ricoh USA, Inc. "Traditional digital shops like TP are increasingly seeing the value of bringing wide-format production in house because it allows customers to get all of their print needs with a single partner. Ricoh has helped TP expand into this exciting market with high quality print – no matter the format. We're excited to continue our partnership with TP, and to help them grow even further from here."
