SOY INKS

The risograph has its own special colour pallet. Dopple has 12 colours ranging from rich deep tones to vibrant fluorescents. Not only are there these pure spot colours but the soy-based ink allows for colours to be overlayed in order to create new ones. This means you can create a three-colour print with only two colours for example- you can even print CMYK photos! Click on the little ink drums to see the swatches:

RISOGRAPHY

The Risograph is a stencil duplicator machine that works in a similar way to screen printing. It creates a stencil from banana paper, this is then wrapped around an ink drum and soy ink is pushed through the voids of the stencil. As the paper glides over the rotating drum it imprints your artwork onto its surface. The colours are then layered up to create your masterpiece!

Riso is the only environmentally friendly form of printing and when you work with Dopple you should know that's taken seriously. Dopple only stocks 100% recycled, unbleached paper and compostable packaging. Everything in the studio is reused and recycled at every opportunity! Hence all the Ink canister lamps! 

TL:DR  It's a cool eco-friendly screen printing machine

ARTWORK

Dopple offer

free artwork setup!

Scared off Riso because you're

not sure about the artwork setup?

With eight years of experience in Risography Dopple has your back

in achieving the best print possible.

What Dopple Needs:

➻ a 300dpi full-colour PDF of your 

    artwork at the correct size, exactly

    as you would ideally like it to look.

➻ Leave a 5mm border clear

    around the edge of your artwork.

➻ Bear in mind that Riso has a

    specific colour pallet so if you

    don't use those tones and

    colours when creating your piece

    expect the print outcome colours

    to be a bit different.

➻ Super helpful to include your

    packaged Adobe files (for any

    tweaks that may need doing)

Already a Riso Whizz?

Dopple will happily accept your colour-separated layers as high res greyscale PDFS along with a full-colour proof.


You could even try a workshop if you are keen to learn!

TOP TIPS

✸   Increase line-up accuracy: 

     Include an extra stroke around 

     layers, to maximise alignment.

✸   Improve the finish:

     Avoid dense areas of Ink

     coverage! Too inky = roller marks,

     needle drag, and ink transfer.

✸   Printing photos / 4+ Colours: 

     Dopple can separate your

     artwork into CMYK. Overlaying

     these four colours will create

     more- even full-colour photos!

✸.  Halftone:

     You can choose how you'd like 

     each layer printed. Either as 

     'Smooth' (emulating your design

     as closely as possible). Or as a

     'Halftone' printed in large or 

     small dots using the machine.

✸   Type Clarity:

     If you typeset in Photoshop you

     can expect your text to rasterize

     & look blurry. Zoom in to check

     the overall clarity of your artwork.

✸   Gradients:

     Use the middle section of 

     gradients, the ends of the

     spectrum will result in a

     digitize line pattern.

PAPER

     perfectly suited to the riso

     process. All are unbleached

     & 100% recycled.
