About Risograph Printing:
The Risograph print process may be best explained
as the 'missing link' between screen printing and
offset printing. Essentially, it is a fancier version of
the old mimeograph printer using real ink.
Risograph duplicators produce rich colors and their
prints have a wonderful look and feel which is quite
unique. The bright blue ink is reminiscent of old
blueprints and 1960s style newspaper printing.
Tiny imperfections like ink dots and hazes are part
of their unique gritty quality.
The machine works by transferring scanned
artwork onto a thin plastic master sheet. This
master sheet is then wrapped around a single
color drum which rotates while pushing ink through
the master onto the paper below.
Multi-color images are achieved by switching the
color drums and running the paper through again to
print multiple layers just as you would when screen
