Risograph Printing

Risograph Printing is a cost-effective printing process that can quickly produce large volumes. Its distinctive aesthetic quality makes it stand out compared to other conventional printing processes. A Riso project is designed using layers. These can be prepared traditionally or digitally using software such as ProCreate, Photoshop and Illustrator. Or use conventional drawing materials, paper cut craft and mixed media to create stencils.
When designing a project consider how the layers interact with one another. Choose whether colours will overlay or be separate, if colour transparencies are to be used to achieve secondary colours and how the final key tone completes the image. Or choose a favorite photograph to be reproduced via four-colour separation. An image can be split into its digital colour channels. The Riso machine then prints these channels in yellow, cyan, magenta and black. Just watch out for registration imperfections!
The Risograph duplicator is suited for drawing and graphical arts projects and improvised photographic reproductions. Once prepared, a print edition is easily produced, using non-archival environmentally friendly Soy based inks.
Perfect for the creation of flyers, disposable publications, proof printing and the creation of affordable art.
What is Riso printing?

The Risograph is a stencil duplicator. Think of it as a cross between screen printing and photocopying. The Riso prints one colour at a time in bright, vibrant colours. It is ideal for posters, graphic prints, zines, comics, and other graphic arts.
