RISOGRAPH


The risograph is a digital duplicator that was created in 1986 by the Riso Kagaku Corporation in Japan. Originally intended for schools, churches, and other organizations, the risograph allows for high volume printing at an affordable price. Similar to the silk screening process, the Risograph creates a master by burning an image onto a master sheet. The master is then wrapped around a cylindrical drum where ink is forced through and applied onto paper.

Riso printing provides an affordable, sustainable, and creative alternative to traditional forms of print production. We view it as our duty to consciously utilize our resources, creating and producing books through a more economically & environmentally sustainable model. This process allows for a more accessible avenue to distribute intersectional feminist content to our interconnected network and beyond.
