Transform inspiration into reality with the new RICOH Ri 1000 direct to garment printer. Our versatile, next-generation machine provides quick print speeds and crisp, vibrant graphics. Whether you need to fulfill an order for hundreds of customized t-shirts or a single, highly personalized one-off, printing custom garments requires only three easy steps: design, print, and cure.
If you can design it, you can print it. Create your graphic using your favorite design software, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, or CorelDRAW. If you prefer, you also can print graphics accepted from customers or other designers as long as they submit the image in PNG, JPG, or TIFF formats. Once you have your image, prepare for print using the included AnaRIP software or the optional advanced Kothari Pro RIP software. AnaJet’s rip software options help you get the perfect print by allowing you to position and fine-tune the image for the specific garment style and color.
Whether you are printing on light garments or dark garments, an adult-size t-shirt or extra-small infant onesie, the RICOH Ri 1000 creates gorgeous, eye-popping prints quickly. Our water-based inks are not only environmentally friendly and cost effective, but they also allow you to print on both natural fabrics and synthetic blends like 100% light poly. When you’re ready, simply load your garment and send your file directly to the printer or to a USB drive for convenient printing.
Once your print is complete, it is essential to cure the ink into the fabric to ensure a long-lasting printed garment that is easy to clean in a regular washing machine, less likely to fade, feels soft, and resists cracking when stretched. Cure your printed garment using a heat press or tunnel dryer.
Getting a perfect print on the garment of your choice is easy with the help of AnaJet’s RIP software. Use the included AnaRIP software to quickly process images. For advanced functionality and ultra-optimized profiles for even brighter, more accurate colors, choose Kothari Pro RIP.
AnaRIP software is intuitive and easy to use. Included with your printer purchase, AnaRIP helps you get started printing as quickly as possible.
AnaRIP’s default profiles are optimized to provide beautiful results in most printing scenarios. For highly specialized prints, included tools make further custom adjustments a breeze.
When it comes to DTG printing, all images must be processed and exported as a printer-readable file. AnaRIP is designed for use with your machine and rips images in seconds.
Preview your design in true color. AnaRIP TrueView accurately matches colors on your monitor with your shirt color, so you can see how your printed garment will look when it’s complete.
- Calculate Ink Cost
AnaRIP accurately measures the amount of ink required and how much it will cost, helping you to set shirt prices more easily.
High-performance DTG printing demands high-performance RIP software. Get ultra-optimized color profiles and advanced functionality with Kothari Pro RIP created by industry leader, Kothari Info-Tech.

Utilizing an advanced algorithm based on the garment’s color, the software minimizes waste by more accurately calculating the amount of white ink needed to complete your print.
