the Risograph is an environmentally friendly and cost effective printer, which uses soy-based inks to produce unique outcomes. Each stencil (master) is made from thermal sensitive paper and unlike offset printing it only takes a single print for the screen to be fully inked and ready to print thousands of copies. The Risograph is extremely energy efficient and generates a minimal amount of waste, it has a very attractive low fi quality to it which has made it popular among artists, particularly its low price point on high print numbers.
when printing 2+colours it can have elements of misregistration due to the way the printer feeds the paper, we try our best to accomodate this by overprinting most orders or offering a pointing process for an extra fee (This is not suitable for all projects so its best to get the conversation rolling about your project before asking for it) This misregistration can make every print slightly unique from a sales viewpoint and some people find it very attractive.
Risograph printing is a specific form of print that we specialise in, the print process is longer, theres a lot more choice in paper stock, print effects and a lot more hands on but thats the way we like it. If your interested but not sure how to get started why not try one of our drop in sessions
We also offer toner and digital print for jobs that risograph is not suitable for.
