RISO printing  




After half a year of playing around and learning the ins and outs of risography, I’m open for job printing! Currently, I print for Ghost Proposal and various pals from my little home studio in Western Mass. 

What is risography? Though a RISO machine may look like a copier, the risograph process is one of duplication. It’s much closer to screenprinting. Each color is layered one at a time using interchangable inking drums. Smudging, slight shifts in registration, and variations in coverage are part of what gives it a handmade feel. Risolve is a great resource for more info! 

Possible uses for risograph printing: Postcards, posters, chapbooks, pamphlets, protest signs, zines, show cards, invitations, fine art prints, broadsides, photos, infinite possibilities etc. <3
