Risograph Printing

Somewhere between offset printing and a photocopier, Risograph(Riso) printing has been used in offices to do large print runs of one or two color documents, or in church basements and by groups like the Boy Scouts to print newsletters.  My shop operates a few Risos, all of which are GR models of various sizes. These are pretty old machines, but they produce really cool results and can print in a bunch of different colors. I can currently print very accurate registration(for a Riso) on letter sized paper. Legal sized prints are less accurate. I am in the process of refurbishing a machine that will be able to print tabloid.

Specify how many pages your document is and if your job is a book or will be printed on individual sheets
Right now the largest area I can print for a booklet is 7.75x6.25" per page and the largest flat sheet I can print is 7.75x12.5". This is based on legal sized print area. Sheets of paper can be bigger, leaving a margin of unprinted space around your design.
Registration
How accurate the printing of each color needs to be. For best registration keep the print area limited to 7.75x10.25".
