How it works
Risograph operates in a very similar way to screen printing. The image is sent to print, the printer then creates a wax paper stencil called a master of the image and wraps it around a print drum. The drum then rotates at high speed pushing the ink through the master, the paper is then passed underneath the rotating drum printing the image onto the paper.
As an added perk, Riso printing is also an environmentally friendly way of printing. The printer is extremely energy efficient and creates minimal amount of waste. The inks are all soy based and the masters are all made from waxed banana paper. Since us dudes at Neighbourhood Press also enjoy our air fresh and our trees green we try our best to use recycled, uncoated paper stocks to keep up our end of the bargain.
