What is Risograph?
The Risograph, or RISO, is a digital stencil duplicator designed for high volume reproduction of designs on paper. As a printing method, risograph sits somewhere between screen printing and offset lithography, creating unique vibrant prints with a distinguishable tactile finish.
At Damn Fine Print we offer a range of services through our ME9350 two-colour risograph printer, including a print service, workshops in the risograph printing process and our shop, which is host to limited edition prints from our exhibitions.
Originally used for economic high volume printing, the risograph has in recent years become more popular with illustrators and designers for its low running cost and distinctive appearance.
Risograph inks are soy-based which means that not only are they eco friendly but give a distinct organic print finish. The inks, being semi translucent allows for gorgeous overprint results.
