Risograph prints, comics, and zines! Letterpress ephemera!

We’re a letterpress and risography publishing group located in Houston, Texas. Begun in 2008, Mystic Multiples exists to produce exciting, new work in print for designers and artists.

Our work is printed on a pair of N series Kluges, which were created at the dawn of the 20th century. In letterpress, rollers laden with ink pass over the face of a relief plate, and then stamp into the surface of the paper to transfer that ink. The result is a relief print that highlights fine detail and line work. Although mainly known for it’s use in wedding stationary, we’re strong proponents of using letterpress to create multi-color artist prints and ephemeral items.

For our risograph output, we use a Riso GR3750 and GR3770. Risograph prints are a cross between screen printing and mimeograph prints, and print quickly while sacrificing alignment and coverage. There’s a limited palette of ink colors available, and for those who can find creativity in constraints, it’s our least expensive way to get work published.

Our studio combines the illustrative skills of artist Sarah Welch, and the printmaking expertise of Master Printer James Beard.
