Hato Press is a print and publishing house which runs two Risograph MZ 770 and one RP 3700 stencil duplicators. The risograph covers a gap in the market that has been held by digital and lithograph printing. At current we have 16 colours.
We apply this printing process to the production of artist publications, invites, flyers, posters, illustration prints and zines, though it was traditionally used for high volume printing and photocopying in schools, churches and small political parties.
Many of the books we produce not only make use of risograph printing but also letterpress, screen printing and offset lithography.
We’ve been running the press for over four years now and have learnt how to get the optimum results from the printer.
We have also been running workshops at the Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths and Central Saint Martins. So please feel free to ask for any advice, we are here to help.
