RISOGRAPH WORKSHOP


What a wonderful experience: I spent my saturday afternoon at DoThePrint, experimenting with their Risograph Printer... and fell deeply in love with the aesthetic it offers!!

The machine looks like a common copy machine but works a bit different: it prints every color separate, just like silkscreen printing. So you have to prepare your illustration by making every color a document, keeping in mind that you can print one color on top of the other and create a third color this way. The imperfections look absolutely charming, and it's nice to know that ink is soy-based and much more ecological than other toners.
