What is a Risograph?

Risographs (Riso for short) are digital high-speed printers. They are available for formats up to A4, A3 or A2. The Japanese company RISO Kagaku Corporation developed the Risograph in 1986, a stencil printing process that is carried out using the cylinder printing method.
In the 1980s, it was used primarily in government agencies and schools for the fast, inexpensive duplication of documents.

Designers, publishers, illustrators and artists rely on this popular printing technique. The advantages of RISO products are evident in their environmentally friendly application. The devices bring the ink to paper during printing without heat and chemicals. At the same time the costs for consumables are low.

How does Riso work?

In the process, computers send greyscale PDFs with colour separation to the risographs. The scanner reads the document. For printing, Riso lasers in a master foil for all colours. The foils are stretched over a printer drum. This has a fine steel screen.

During printing, the drum rotates and the ink falls through the screen onto the master foil, which was previously processed with the laser. The drum presses the ink onto the paper. The process is similar to screen printing. The colour range of a riso includes up to 20 standard colours. Available colours include red, green, black and special colours such as hunter green, crimson, gold and fluorescent pink. If required, desired colours can be added. The colours are based on rice bran and soybean oil. The master films consist of banana leaf or hemp fibres.

Riso printing allows small print runs of ten copies or more as well as large print runs. The effort required for print setting and master production is low. The ink dries slowly when printing with riso. Therefore use uncoated paper. With the computer you control RISO products directly. Available are single-colour and two-colour printers.
