Risograph printing is unlike regular four-colour printing, and was developed through an independent system that creates each colour individually. This two-part booklet aims to act as a guide for those interested in risograph printing, as well as a supplement for others who may already be familiar with the many variables that should be taken into account when preparing to print. The authors feel that risograph, despite its imperfections and difficulties, has the most personality and is the most fun type of printing process to use. The booklet’s first part presents information in a more easily understandable graphic language, while the second part focuses on all aspects of colour.
We are writing this book, because for the last two years we have been witness to so many different situations and stories with our customers, that we have come to see our studio as a theatre of sorts – as the stage for printing narratives to unfold. We chose the name “The Imperfection Booklets” in an ironic way is to tell people it’s nuances of imperfection even make the prints very charming, and it can be a very fun, creative and stimulating printing technique.
