Swampy art prints and zines for lovers of green

We’re a letterpress and risograph 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.

Sizing details

Most of our prints are available in one size only. We print in editions on our Risograph press, so all of the prints have to be printed together at the same time. We also believe there is something special about our original prints, so we do not produce digital reproductions of them. Thanks!

Care instructions

Risograph printing uses inks that are similar to newspaper inks -- heavy handling may cause a small amount of ink to transfer. Please only handle our prints with dry hands.

Sometimes the printing process can leave roller marks in the vertical line through the print. Small marks in border areas may be erased by soft art erasers.

Wholesale availability

We offer wholesale prints! Please message us for a custom order to learn more about this process.
