  • Notes

    RISO machines use semi-permanent ink that never quite dries completely — even months after printing, it can rub off a little on fingertips like newsprint. This is normal! So is slight misregistration, where two colors may not quite line up. It's all part of the charm.

Risograph printed and assembled by hand in Atlanta, Georgia.

Risograph Vibes

The charm of risograph printing is in its imperfections. There will always be some slight misregistration between colors and a degree of surface irregularities in a risograph print, but these qualities lend an authenticity to the medium that can't be found in traditional four-color process commercial printing.
