GRIN do RISO!

The GRIN team had a whale of time this week at the ‘How 2 Riso’ Workshop held by Rope Press. The workshop acts as an introduction to Riso printing, and boy, did we get stuck in! The GRIN Studio team got super crafty, creating collages initially for a single colour print and then a second two colour print.

To briefly give you the Riso low-down…

‘Risography is a spot colour process, meaning colours are applied separately in layers. Inks are housed individually in drums and can be used in any combination to create rich and vibrant colours and tones through overprinting.

‘Just like screen printing, layers are printed separately. Miss-registration is a common trait in Risograph printing and can be experienced when artworks aren’t properly trapped or when printing more than two colours. Miss-registration as a characteristic is a part of the embedded charm of the Risograph making up its unique aesthetic.’

We can’t wait to get back to Rope Press for more Riso fun! In the meantime, we’re trying to convince Phil to buy the team a Riso printer…
