Risograph

Say hi to Rocinante the Riso!

Risograph printmaking produces rich, vibrant color prints through a high speed stencil-based printing process similar to screen printing but with the convenience of an office copier. Risograph prints stand out for their unique texture and the use of transparent inks made from environmentally friendly rice bran which allow colors to be overprinted. The process offers an easy and inexpensive method for printmaking in medium to large quantities for posters, zines, flyers, cards, buttons and more. It also happens to be an incredibly fun and experimental process to work with!
