Thanks to you, the Ricoma name is now present in over 130 countries – and it won’t end there. We appreciate the trust and support you have placed in our company and will continue to grant our customers the competitive advantage they deserve and expect from us. For many years, we’ve helped decorated apparel businesses make it to the top. Now, it is with great joy that I announce our newest slogan: Think beyond. As a promise that we are endlessly thinking beyond, we have completely rebranded our company to keep up with the changing media landscape. Now, you’ll have all the resources you need in one easy-to-navigate site. To better serve our valued customers, our hardworking employees have all adapted to this mindset and will continue to use their skillset to help embroidery businesses and suppliers succeed. As always, only when our customers succeed with our products and services, can we succeed in our business! This is our company’s foundation and what we continue to believe to this day. Now and always, we will maintain our commitment to excellent quality, superior service and competitive pricing. Please feel free to contact me or anyone on our staff with questions you may have concerning Ricoma or our products.

Thank you again for being part of a growing network of business-minded, hardworking individuals. We truly appreciate the opportunity to provide you with quality products and services.
