"Was that printed on a risograph?"

I have two Riso RZ220 machines, rescued and refurbished from the San Jose (CA) and Chandler (AZ) school districts. Current ink colors as of June 2019 are BLACK, FEDERAL BLUE, HUNTER GREEN, GRASS GREEN, BRIGHT RED, FLUORESCENT PINK, FLUORESCENT ORANGE and YELLOW.

An ink color guide is available for purchase or as a free download.

The maximum print area is approx. 8.5" x 14" (legal). The RZ220 prints best on cardstock 80lb or under.

These machines are great for printing zines, small prints and flyers.

Want something printed?

Is your print 8.5” x 14” inches or smaller? I can help!

Email me and tell me the paper size, ink colors, and edition size and I can give you cost estimate. Most art printing projects cost $0.75 to $2.00 per print. My minimum order for prints is $65. I cannot print images larger than 8.5” x 14”!

I can also help you print your zines!

Zine printing starts at $2 per book. Most book projects cost between $2.50 to 5.00 per book. I offer staple binding, pamphlet stitch or spiral binding, and I can trim books to custom sizes. My minimum order for zines is $125.

The maximum size for staple-bound and sewn books is 7” x 8.5” (typical size is 5.5” x 8.5”).
The maximum size for spiral-bound books is 8.5” x 11” (letter size).

Turn-around is typically 2 weeks.

Risograph Workshops

I teach Risograph workshops at The Compound Gallery & Studios in Oakland, CA. Workshops cover the ins and outs of the machine and the types of projects translate well to Riso printing, as well as file prep, paper selection, design for multiple colors, troubleshooting common problems, and an overview of Bay Area Risograph resources. Each participant has the opportunity to print an edition of two-color prints.

We also offer private workshops if you have a group or team interested in learning to print together! Private workshops are coordinated by The Compound, get in touch if you want to learn more!
