The faster you move information, the sooner you can move to the next opportunity. Use the RICOH SP C342DN to print up to 26 pages per minute with exceptional color and clarity. With 2 GB standard RAM and an Intel 1.46 GHz processor, you can handle the most complex files and large graphics with ease.

Take advantage of an all-front-facing design to swap consumables and restock paper trays no matter where the printer is placed. Run longer, uninterrupted jobs by adding an optional 500-Sheet Paper Tray to complement the standard 500-Sheet Paper Tray and 100-Sheet Bypass Tray. Install, download and configure print drivers online with Device Software Manager to simplify print setup.
Choose a printer that meets your workstyle
Some of your best ideas come when you're on the move. Share them with others the same way. Use AirPrint, Wi-Fi Direct or the RICOH Smart Device Print and Scan app to print from your smartphone, tablet or laptop without installing software, drivers or utilities. With the optional Hard Disk Drive (HDD) installed, you can seamlessly print digital files via USB or SD Card. A USB Device Server option adds a second network interface port and allows two different network environments to be supported by one shared printer. With the wireless LAN option, you can place the device virtually anywhere, adding value and convenience for your workgroup.
Grab attention with vibrant color
Make your messages more memorable. Add color to printed presentations, brochures, proposals and more to bring them to life. Give customers a clearer picture via detailed images with exceptional shading, vivid colors and precise text at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. Customize each project to fit specific audiences with versatile media support up to 120 lb. Index and up to three independent paper sources. Print everyday documents up to 8.5" x 14" from the standard Paper Tray. You can even print banners at sizes up to 8.5" x 49.6" using the Bypass Tray. With so much versatility, you'll fill most print needs in-house.
Choose more affordable printing
You want a printer that can save you from any extra hassles. Why not choose the RICOH SP C342DN and save money at the same time? Find optimal value in a versatile color printer that can meet the demands of almost any workload at any time with affordable operating costs. For example, you can use it to print professional-looking documents with brilliant colors in moments right from your desktop. Or, you can use Economy Color Mode to employ less toner when you need only draft-ready presentations and documents for internal reviews. Plus, you can reduce paper costs with standard duplexing and a special feature that prevents the printing of blank pages.
Be responsible and reduce energy costs
We designed the RICOH SP C342DN to be ENERGY STAR certified and meet EPEAT Silver criteria, making it easy for you to be environmentally responsible. Take advantage of Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) of 1.6 kWh/week. To reduce energy consumption even more, program the printer to power on and power off at predetermined times or use Web Image Monitor to shut it off remotely. With Eco-Night Sensor, the printer shuts down automatically when the room becomes dark. The printer also offers first print speeds around 13 seconds. Use our intuitive Eco-Friendly Indicator on the operation panel to track paper-saving metrics and to encourage more responsible print behavior.
Help keep confidential information secure
When you lose your message, you lose its power. Take advantage of User Code Authentication to restrict access to specific print functions. For example, you can reduce print costs by prohibiting an individual or entire workgroup from printing documents in color. With Unauthorized Copy Control, the printer can mask sensitive information in a printed document when unauthorized users try to make a copy of it. When you add the optional Hard Disk Drive (HDD), you can give every job a password so it stays in queue until you authorize it to print directly at the device. Help protect information on the optional Hard Disk Drive with standard encryption and data overwrite capabilities.
