What is a Risograph?

Feb 28, 2022 | Blog



Risographs are having their moment with more and more Illustrators, Graphic Designers & Artists choosing this as a fun method of printing. But what is it?

Risographs are printed using a Risograph printer. These were originally developed for use in schools and offices as duplicators for high volume printing. The unique quality of these prints, quickly caught the attention of artists. The ability to quickly reproduce their art work using so many different colours and in an eco-friendly way was really appealing. Using layers like screen printing but with less labour involved.
