Ricoh Creative Coaching
Many print providers have a creativity gap. They market CMYK-only applications mainly because that is what they know, but there is so much more than CMYK. With Ricoh Creative Design Coaching Services, we help you go beyond the ordinary. This service offers a Ricoh Creative Coach to help discover the power of the entire operation. It starts with a survey with the customer to assess their entire print operation, from the RICOH Pro C7200 Series Graphic Arts Edition 5th Station to software and finishing, then the coach helps the customer see what can be marketed while creating design work to showcase available applications to end clients.
Providing customers with a highly creative, innovative, direct mail campaign (print-ready PDF) tailored to your production print and finishing abilities.
