WHAT IS RISO PRINTING?
The Risograph is kind of like a tiny little screen printing studio. It prints one color at a time from a master stencil. This is a great process for bold designs, posters, comic art, or pretty much anything with a nice “graphic” quality to it.
It also works for color separations (4 color CMYK approximates or even duotone) on photographs, paintings etc!
(If you want photo-quality prints we recommend color laser or inkjet instead.)
For inspiration Google “Risograph” to find plenty of awesome examples.
Riso prints will be run 9am - 9pm Monday - Thursday, and 9am - 5pm on Fridays. No printing on weekends. One or two color single side prints take up to 48 hours. No RUSH fee. Add 24 hours for each additional color. Add 72 hours total for a booklet.
Inks are not 100% opaque so you can ‘mix’ two colors (or tints of two colors) to achieve even more colors! Take a peak at our color charts. Riso colors are not Pantone compatible but here is a list of the nearest Pantone equivalent colors to aid you in the design process.
