ChiDM + STA Risograph Workshop
First opening its doors in 1946 in Toyko, Japan, Risograph finds its roots in mimeograph technology. The machine is designed to create a master on wax-like paper, almost like a stencil, and stamp it onto the pages, creating a “live ink” look. The machine uses soy-based ink and can offset print runs of hundreds at 150 pages per minute. Presented by STA Chicago and ChiDM.

In this workshop, you can expect to learn Risograph basics, including how to prepare files, operate the machine and troubleshoot problems. We will also discuss advanced Risograph techniques, using multiple colors with multiple images to achieve different aesthetics.
