Risograph Printing

We offer affordable Risograph printing on Scandinavia's tiniest and only CV3230.

Note! The printshop is taking a hiatus from external print jobs through May 2019. Sorry for the inconvenience. From then, we'll be back with at least one new color.

This Risograph prints on max A3 paper with a max print size of B4:

Note the uneven margins if you utilize the entire print area. Smaller images can be centered, and even B4 size images can be shifted up/down the page by 10mm.

In five colors (chart from

Uncoated papers between 60 - 180 gsm work best. Thicker papers can also be carefully fed through for small editions. The Risograph's straight paper feed is what lets it print on such a big variety of stocks.

Risograph inks are semi-translucent and blend well. This means quite many colors can be produced from just the three primaries, green and black. Think of it like silkscreen or painting. In the pictures below, each print is actually made of 2-3 separate layers of ink.

A fair warning: registration does not always go as planned with this machine, so get ready to embrace it or design around it.
