Excel with quick, compact performance

Streamline your document needs with the RICOH MP C3503 Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP), a powerful, cost-effective solution for high-quality color or monochrome output. Expect crisp, impressive documents at up to 35 pages per minute (ppm). Scan both sides of a two-sided original with the standard 100-sheet Automatic Reversing Document Feeder (ARDF). Plus, with its quiet design and compact footprint, the MP C3503 can easily fit into your mid-volume workflow environment.

Get power and productivity at any size

Make the most of your media. The standard paper tray accepts a wide range of paper sizes up to 12" x 18" - including envelopes - and media weights up to 166 lb. index. For larger jobs, you can expand the standard paper capacity to accommodate 4,700 sheets. Plus, you'll enjoy a maximum monthly output of up to 20,000 pages a month.

Imagine and create in color

Make a colorful impression with vibrant, full-color reproductions at 1200 dpi. The Fiery® controller provides compelling professional-grade output on a wider range of paper stocks, as well as enhanced spot-color reproduction with RGB, CMYK and PANTONE® colors - making it ideal for graphics-intensive environments. Plus, optional SRA3/12.6" x 17.7" support gives in-house graphic designers the ability to print crop marks for full-bleed printing.

Take information with you - anytime, anywhere

Enjoy incredible mobile convenience by printing your documents with your smartphone, tablet or laptop - no special drivers needed. Transform the MP C3503 into an information portal to access documents via Ricoh's Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE), and send scanned documents to multiple recipients with the Scan-to-Email/Folder/URL/FTP feature. Plus, even non-network users can use the USB drive or SD card to print JPEGs, TIFFs and PDFs directly.

Achieve a professional finish

Customize as you go, while easily managing your device footprint. Add a space-saving 500-sheet internal finisher with 50-sheet stapling, as well as optional hole-punching. You can also add an external 1000-sheet finisher with similar options, plus saddle stitching, to save time while achieving longer print runs.

Sustain your commitment

You don't have to choose between productivity and environmental responsibility. The MP C3503 proudly features an EPEAT® Gold Rating, is ENERGY STAR® certified, and includes a host of energy-saving features for a low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value (as determined by ENERGY STAR program testing requirements). In addition, Ricoh's consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.

Interact with a smarter interface

Make smarter, quicker use of your resources. The optional 10.1" Wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel offers touch-screen functionality and allows you to switch between tasks with ease. Create shortcuts to quickly manage your everyday tasks, and customize common jobs to save time and boost productivity.

Add tough security features

Help stop unwanted document access with user authentication, and add watermarks to confidential documents to help prevent unwanted duplication. Encrypted PDF transmission scrambles document data, while the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) automatically overwrites any files left on the hard drive. Plus, the hard disk drive (HDD) encryption adds another layer of important protection.

Manage from afar

Choose smarter ways to manage your device. Ricoh's optional @Remote internet-based tool lets you monitor device usage, automate meter reads, receive toner alerts, and handle service needs to shorten downtime. You can also limit output for specific users, plus manage status alerts, device feedback and software updates.
