Riso printer, Risograph, RISO Printer-Duplicator or also called simply only Riso is a stencil printer designed mainly for high-volume photocopying, duplicating and printing. It sits in the realm somewhere between screen print and offset lithography but with a unique aesthetic. Traditionally, risographs have been used for high volume photocopying in schools, churches and small political parties. It uses soy based inks to produce unique quality outcomes, each screen is made from banana paper and unlike litho printing only takes a single print for the screen to be fully inked and ready for printing. These days we can see the rise of a risograph printers for its vibrant, environmentally friendly and cost effective nature, especially on medium to large runs. It can produce anything from books to artist prints with tactile finish very similar to that of screen and litho printing, but for a fraction of the cost.
The Risograph is NOT a high quality print process- it's a cheap, quick and funky alternative to screenprinting that has inherit limitations to output quality. If consideration is taken on the design side (trapping, overprinting, minimizing ink laydown, etc.) many issues will be calmed.
The underlying technology of a risograph is very similar to screen printing or a mimeograph. It works by creating a thermographic master screen for each color of your artwork. This is then wrapped round a rotating drum. Ink is pushed through tiny holes in the screen and onto the paper, which is fed flat through the machine while the drum rotates at high speed to print each image on the paper.
The process works by printing one color at a time. Multicolor images are created by switching the drum color and running the paper through the machine again creating layers in a process similar to screen printing.

Screen printing involves creating photographic stencils that are burned into a mesh screen, then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on a number of printed surfaces. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look.
