About

Designer of cards and prints done with risograph and other printing methods that inspire and make people smile.

I've always been into greeting cards. And have always had a stash of cards I picked out when I would stroll the city's shops. I also handmade custom cards for friends who were down, sick, celebrating great things and just cause. I believe in the power of a positive and friendly gesture and try to create things that help us celebrate the simple things in life. I've fallen in love with risograph printing and am exploring it more everyday.

WHAT IS RISOGRAPH PRINTING?
The Riso machine creates thermographic images on drum masters (screens, made of plant fibres). Each colour is created on a separate "screen" (kind of like screen printing). And then the pages are fed through the machine at a super high pace, pushing soy based ink through the screens onto the paper.
Each colour is done separately, unlike digital printing where CMYK inks are used. This is where things get really creative, depending on what colours you choose to print with. Our designs use up to 3 colour screens.
The Riso machine is made in Japan. It was created for fast and energy efficient photocopying. But unlike regular photocopiers, its super environmental because of energy efficiency, soy-based inks and plant fiber screens.
