“Riso printer intro” by Emily

Everyone seems very excited about this printer, and in this class we were shown how to use it (roughly).  Apparently, it’s very economical compare to a normal laser printer, and so it’s great for printing large numbers of sheets. We only have four colours however, so that is a great limitation. In general, it has many similarities to screen printing, and is able to create different opacities and give the grainy texture that is so popular with many people (including me).

Interesting workshop, and good to know that the option is there, but I don’t think that I’ll be using it anytime soon.
