Ricoh’s on-campus Print Shop, a full-service digital printing and finishing facility, has partnered with Clemson University’s student-run Campus Banner + Design to conveniently offer expanded services for the Clemson campus.

This partnership allows desktop service for consulting on customers’ graphic needs, easy artwork pick-up and on-campus deliveries that eliminate the need to give up a parking spot.

A full-time Ricoh sales professional will be available in the Print Shop, located in the Dillard building, for personal graphics consultation and customer service.

The expanded list of services also includes window graphics, floor graphics, decals and professional installation, in addition to large format printing on paper, canvas, vinyl with mounting and cut-out capabilities on campus.

John Gilbert, a representative for the Ricoh Print Shop, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership. “We are really excited to work with the students at Campus Banner + Design; their energy and passion for communications solutions are a perfect fit for Ricoh’s vision in offering Clemson great products with exceptional service,” he said.

Ben Sledge, production manager for Campus Banner + Design, said, “This partnership is great for the students at CB+D. It will allow us to design more complete communications solutions for our clients; and it will help us continue to focus on reinforcing what we are learning in the classroom. I’m excited to be working more closely with the professionals at Ricoh.”

Ricoh, a $23 billion global company with 107,000 employees, operates on Clemson’s campus through the Clemson Print Shop. Located in the Dillard building, the shop uses Ricoh-certified printers to create high-quality digital images for customers. Printing, scanning, copy and mail services are all available in the Clemson Print Shop. For more information, email CUprint@clemson.edu or call 864-656-0687.
