RISOTTO is a risograph print and design specialist based in Glasgow.
Riso works at the speed of a photocopier, prints using rich spot colours like screen printing,
but at a fraction of the print cost.
Riso printing is an extremely adaptable print method, with outcomes ranging from bespoke festival programs and giveaways, to complete branding packages and stationery.
We regularly receive bespoke requests in small and large quantities, so if you have an idea for a specific project, we would love to hear about it.
Our clients range from cultural organisations to boutique bars, and design studios to local artists and bands.
Riso inks are soy based and the screens (stencils) are made from banana paper.
The machine is highly energy efficient and almost all house papers are recycled.
As well as the 15 spot colours, overlaying can create a whole new spectrum of new tones.
Riso inks have a slight translucent quality. This means that the tones can vary according to the paper they’re printed on.
We offer a range of house papers
in a variety of weights and colours.
If you have a particular request, we can order in paper to suit, or you’re welcome to supply your own. All papers are supplied in A3 and we regularly order from G.F.Smith and PaperBack.
We offer a range of folding, trimming & binding. For bespoke jobs with hand folding or other finishings requirements, facilities are outsourced to our trusted local service providers.
Most jobs will incur the standard 20% VAT charge. If your project can be described as one of the following it’s likely to be liable for VAT: a set of posters, stationery, a calendar, a collection of photos, illustrations, wrapping paper.
