Get big business color output in a small footprint

Maximize your space and budget with the RICOH M C250FW Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP), a compact and affordable desktop device designed specifically for today's fast-paced small office or workgroup. Print, copy, scan and fax documents at productive speeds with low maintenance from the desktop, under a retail register, in reception areas or other locations where space is limited.

Hurry without worry

Move information quickly with ease. Print or copy high-quality color or black-and-white output at up to 26 pages per minute (ppm) or 13 ppm when duplexing. Scan and fax documents directly to emails and other destinations. With recovery time of 12 seconds from Sleep Mode and a first-print speed of 14 seconds, productivity has never been easier or more convenient.

Extend print runs and your budget

The competitively priced M C250FW is an incredible long-term investment. Its high-yield color toners require less replenishing. Plus, they can help you improve average cost per page. Add an optional paper tray to expand paper capacity to 751 sheets and minimize untimely reloads. To get started, choose from multiple connectivity options, including Ethernet and WiFi, for fast set-up.

Work on the move

Offering the potential to share and print information from a smartphone, tablet or laptop via AirPrint®*, Mopria®* or Google Cloud Print, the M C250FW fits perfectly with users on the move. Plus, with its Near Field Communication (NFC) tag, you can be more productive by printing via the RICOH Smart Device Connector app — simply tap the NFC tag with your Android® phone and select a file to print or scan.

*Available Fall 2019.

Bring accountability to the small office

Safeguard great ideas and those responsible for them. Manage user access to specific MFP functions, including color printing, with user codes and passcodes. Reduce unnecessary printing even more with Locked Print. It requires users to authenticate at the device before print jobs are released to reduce paper consumption and minimize extraneous prints lying unattended in the paper trays.

Impress with color and convenience

Make great ideas look even better with 2400 x 600 dpi resolution. Create full-color documents with logos, company letterhead and more to get more attention by more audiences. Use a wide range of paper stocks, including letter- and legal-sized documents, envelopes and more, and keep more jobs in-house to improve productivity while reducing print costs.

Use your energy wisely

Reduce your carbon footprint with a desktop device designed for today's responsible small-office user. The RICOH M C250FW is ENERGY STAR™ certified and is EPEAT® Silver rated.* It offers default duplex printing to reduce paper costs. To maximize uptime and efficiency, set up automatic toner delivery via RICOH @Remote and device management with RICOH Streamline NX v3.

*EPEAT Silver rating is only applicable in the USA.

Digitize your workflow

Share information immediately with convenient scanning capabilities. Use the 50-sheet Single Pass Document Feeder (SPDF) to scan two-sided originals simultaneously to improve productivity. Access ID Copy on the easy-to-use 4.3" touchscreen and copy double-sided ID cards, checks and other small-sized documents in a single step to save time.
