What is a Risogrpah (RISO) print?
RISO printing is in principle very similar to screen printing. A "master" template is created which is stretched around an ink drum. The "master" only allows ink to pass through the areas where the artwork is located, much like with screen printing. Each color layer is printed using a separate drum and must be done in layers.
The process results in a beautiful piece of art with slight "imperfections" giving the print depth and uniqueness - much like hand printing processes.
RISO prints and the environment
Risograph printing is one of the more environmentally friendly printing processes available. This is due to two factors: 1) Risograph printers use only soy ink made from vegetable soybean oil. 2) the printer itself consumes very little energy because RISO printing does not require heat set the ink.
