My shop operates a few Risographs, 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 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.
What Is a Risograph?
If silkscreen and a photocopier had a baby that baby would be Risograph. Risograph printing functions like a photocopier, but instead of burning toner to a sheen of paper, the machine burns your image into a sheet of material called a master and stretches it around a cylindrical silk screen. Paper moves through the machine, passing over the drum. A squeegee/roller system on the inside of the drum pushes the ink through the master like a stencil. The result is that whatever was black on your original prints in whatever color of soy-based ink is in the drum. To print multiple colors the paper has to go through the machine multiple times. Does this make sense? It really doesn’t matter. What you need to know is that it is an affordable style of printing that looks a lot like a silkscreen/stencil.
