RISOGRAPH PRINTING: The wonderful world of risograph printing is now available at Oddities Prints. Riso printing is a high speed alternative to screen printing. Perfect for flyers / books / zines / brochures / artist editions / cards / 7" jackets / cassette & cd covers and more. Risograph combines the ink on paper look of traditional printmaking with speed, spot-color capabilities and affordability.
Spot Colors: Riso prints in standard ink colors, which can be printed on top of one another to produce additional colors. For example, Blue printed over a layer of Yellow ink results in a nice green, 50% Blue on top of 100% yellow creates yet another tone. Use this to your advantage when designing your prints ;-) Riso inks lay down with a very appealing natural grain to them. Check out the colors we're running :-)
Color Registration: Each color is printed one at a time, just like screen printing. Being a high-speed process means the risograph will register colors within 0-3mm of their intended target. Riso was not originally designed as an "art-machine" and thus has some quirks. We consider this uniqueness part of the appeal of a risograph print whether it's an artist print edition of 10, or a run of 2000 record covers.
Size and Weight: Oddities Prints has the largest riso image size currently available. Our machine can handle paper sized up to 11" x 17". Paper weight can be anything from lightweight 20# text, up to 65# cardstock. We like to run artist editions on top-quality USA-Made stock from French Paper Co. Their paper looks great and accepts ink really well, BUT even on generic paper, your riso print will look COOL!
Risograph pricing is surprisingly affordable! One & two color prints are generally less expensive than a color photocopy copy... WOW! The risograph print process fills a void in the art world by producing inexpensive reproductions, with the ink-on-paper touch of traditional printmaking. Please get in touch! ODDITIES PRINTS is proud to be KC's Art Riso source!
