Meet Ricoh from Minneapolis

Hi. My name is Ricoh. I am a digital printer, and I live in the printshop at Osterhus Printing in Minneapolis, MN. I have my own corner of the shop, and two servants to do my bidding whenever I decide I need more ink or paper.

I have lived here at Osterhus for a few years now, and overall, I like it a lot. I print a lot of business cards, flyers, postcards, and basically anything else that needs to have good color and awesome ink coverage. My sidekick, Ikon, lives on the other side of the room, and he handles some printing, too; but between you and me, I’m definitely the superior machine. I’m smarter, faster, and can fold and saddle-stitch booklets…although I will admit that Ikon can do two things that I can’t: print letterhead and trifold brochures.

This week, I’ve done a few interesting things already. I’ve printed out thank-you notes, a couple of carbonless invoice orders, door hangers for a local auto company, business cards, postcards, table seating cards for an upcoming wedding, and proofs of a rifle target.

Oh! I’ve forgotten the most exciting part of my week: I am the star of my own TV show! Actually, that might be a slight exaggeration, but Osterhus DID feature on the Robbinsdale Channel 12 station a few days ago. Monday morning was pretty exciting for the printshop, as we got to meet a couple of people from Channel 12 and show everyone just how we operate. If you would like to see the video that made me famous, follow this:  Osterhus on Channel 12

Well, that’s really all I have to say for now. If you would like to know more about me, please stop in and say hi sometime! I love having company, and I’ll be sure my servants take good care of you.

Yours truly,
