Risograph printers look like photocopiers and have some of the same characteristics (ie: scanning bed.) But the guts of the machine function quite differently, rather as a stencil duplication process akin to screen printing. Originally Risographs were designed for high-volume photocopying and printing for schools, churches, businesses, etc. but in recent years creative communities of artists and designers have been charmed by its unique look and the challenge of its limitations!
INSIDE THE RISOGRAPH
Besides being awesome in general – Riso printing is fast, economical, and low energy!
PRINTING WITH MONIKER
Moniker has two riso printers in the studio:
VERN is a RZ220u. Used for printing with black ink: flyers, stickers, prints, business cards, etc – up to 8×13″ in size.
EDDY is a MZ790 duo-drum and prints up to 11×17″. In red, black, green or blue ink – best for colour, posters, vinyl/album covers, large scale prints etc. *The MZ took a beating on its way to Vancouver — it’s broken, but it does print — with a few quirks, for example, everything it prints is slightly crooked on the paper.
