Introduction to Risograph

Risograph is a high volume printer that was designed to bridge the gap between small quantity printing, like your office copier, and super high volume digital offset printing. The Riso uses a very unique printing method along with rich, soy based spot colours to produce a certain aesthetic and tactile quality to artworks that is very hard to reproduce by any other means.

This has led to the reconditioning of the Riso by young artists and creatives who have been drawn to the warmth and dynamic quality of the printing method and has seen the emergence of more artist-run printing presses producing their own unique styles of artwork, books and zines, creating a more bespoke and tactile alternative to digital marketing and web based publishing.
