    Hi, maybe someone can help me with a bit of advice? Currently have an old Ryobi 3200 NP which has seen better days, therefore time for an upgrade. Jobs carried out are mostly 1 colour, seldom 2 colour, almost all NCR paper jobs. We also run a lot of single colour envelope jobs. Can anyone advise a natural successor to the Ryobi 3200 NP. Thanks

    I would say that's the best you're going to find in 1 color machines for what you're using it for. I've found that you can run a lot more envelopes on a Ryobi with their 5 ply blankets than you would with an AB Dick which uses 3 ply (?) blankets.
    The natural successor would be a Ryobi 3302 for tight 2/3/4 color.
    The most important part of any small press is to equip it with a continuous dampeners; Crestline or Kompac.

    Agreed, there really is not a better match for running envelopes aside for a Halm then a Ryobi 3200 or 3200E with an Astro envelope feeder attached. I use to service a Blue Cross & Blue Shield account that had 3 Ryobi 3300 presses all with Astro Feeders. When it was time to run envelopes for the quarter they would crank up all 3 presses, 2 shifts each and run off about 1.5 million a month on each press, 2 of the 3 presses had just over 300 million imps when they were retired. As Printerdan said, Crestline and Kompac help much on any small duplicator.

    Hamada made a attachable (screw on clamp) jogger for envelopes for their presses. These also fit and work on the Ryobi 3302 if you happen to have one in the shop.

    Nationwide PR that's a very nice envelope guide you make!
