Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a copy machine and a silk screen had a baby? We never did either, but here we are:

Similar to screen printing, Risograph duplicators work by transfering ink onto paper through a screen stencil. Each color layer is impressed separately. Although the Riso is automated, the nature of the process can provide some unexpected results including slight misregistration and/or roller marks. It's these surprises, though, that make each Riso print unique and interesting.

SIB SIB BOOKS operates a RISO ME9450. The four colors we currently stock allow for full CMYK(-ish) printing and the capability of mixing an extensive assortment of colors. See our color chart or catalogue for reference and examples.
Black, Blue, Bright Red, Yellow

Please don’t hesitate to e-mail us with any questions! We are excited to make your Riso dreams come to life!

Full disclosure: “We” are a one-person operation.

Print Price Guidelines
Price Per Impression:
50-100 : 35¢ each
101+ : 25¢ each
(each time an image is impressed onto the paper)

For example:
100 copies of a 3 color print would cost $75
  • 100 (qty) x 3 (colors) = 300 impressions
  • 300 impressions @ $.25 each = $75
