/ RISOGRAPH PRINTING / DIGITAL SCREEN PRINT
WHAT IS RISO?
The digital duplicator, also called risograph, from the japanese company RISO, is a unique “copy machine”. It combines the high speed of a copier and a silk screen like result. Printing one by one layer of color, with a color library ranging from flourescent to metallics.
Originally an office machine, and not really intended for the art market, the machine has quirks like challenging registration, smudging and not being able to print on anything other than bulky uncoated paper.
The Risograph is also environmentally friendly with ink based on soy and using little power compared to other similar printers. However recycled paper can be troubling because they may contain traces of glue and plastic, and the ink won’t absorb into the paper.

We do not provide the service of assembling books, but our workshop is free to use for everyone that wants to work on their publication. We have the essentials: paper giljotin, staples in different colors and cutting boards.
If you are a group of 3–6 people that want to learn to print with riso, please send us a request and we will make a workshop based on what you want to know or try out with the risograph!
The risograph can only print on uncoated paper, between 80–250gsm. We have a selection of different papers available, but you are also welcome to bring your own – as long as it can print with riso. Our papers don’t contain glue or plastics.
We usually stock Munken papers (pure & lynx)
