2023 Riso Calendar
For our third consecutive year, we're bringing you a new and fresh limited edition 2023 Riso Calendar. Each year gives us the opportunity to play with lots of color, shape, and compositions we would not be able to convey through traditional screen printing or digital printing. We designed 12 months of funky, bright patterns guaranteed to bring color and brightness to your home or office (or home office!). We hope this calendar helps brings you a year of joy and bliss.
Calendars are 10.25”x16.25”, spiral wire bound with wall hanger. Includes a sturdy chipboard backer and it’s printed on 80lb cream cardstock. We encourage you to cut and repurpose each monthly design as wall prints, gifting tags, cards, get creative! Check out the image gallery for inspiration :)
More about Risograph printing from our friend @printedpony:
Risograph technology dates back as far as the 40s, but it didn't become a printing staple until the 90s with the DIY punk zine scene. The word itself translates to “ideal”, which ultimately is the goal of Riso. Finding the happy medium of high volume, color overlays, and cost efficiency is truly the most rewarding part of this puzzling quirky copier. Its bright and electric neon colors are thanks for the eco-friendly formula of its inks. All colors contain different ratios of soy or rice oils, which naturally shows off the potency of the color pigments. Like screen printing, riso is printed by color layer. And we can play with transparencies and color overlays.
