A Risograph is a brand of digital duplicators manufactured in Japan in the 80’s. They have a 2nd life as high-volume, high-quality duplicators used for art and zine printing. Risograph printing is much like if screen printing and photocopiers were combined.

Verge Center for the Arts has a Risograph ME9450. Our available ink colors are Black, Medium Blue, Fluorescent Pink and Yellow. We have letter size uncoated vellum paper available in white, ivory and caramel brown.

In this drop-in session you are able to print your own projects with our risograph. This is not a class so no instruction will be provided but basic troubleshooting on the use of the machine will be done by our staff. There is a mandatory prerequisite of previously attending an intro to riso class at Verge. Register for the next intro class here.
