SELF-PUBLISHING WORKSHOP RISOGRAPH PRINTING 



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.   


GREEN PRINT


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.

COLORS AT PAMFLETT


At Pamflett we got two riso duplicators: 2-color A3-format and 1-color B4-format! Both machine can print on A3 paper, but the print area is A3 and B4.

PUBLICATIONS?


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.


WORKSHOPS?


We also have occasional workshops if you want to learn more. Check out or workshop-page!

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!

Also download the “riso bible” from our scottish colleagues at Risotto Studio! 

PAPER


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 carry Munken papers (pure & lynx)
