Riso Swatches & Mode Tests
This book is meant to serve both as an introduction to Risograph printing for artists and designers and as a sample book for colors that are currently available for use at TXTbooks Headquarters.
The project is not comprehensive in any way and is not even printed to the *best* level that true riso gods may desire (sorry, true riso gods).
Instead, the focus is more or less the out-of-the-box handling of riso with different colors, images, and profile settings to provide a base-level of reference, assuming there will be tweaks and proofs later in the print process for any given project.
Upon completion of the project, there is a lot we learned and could have done better or may seek to expand in the future. Expanding the color-interaction section and some more duotone and tritone color printing samples will be a focus in future iterations.
While it probably goes without saying, this project and its micro-details translate a lot more in person than on screen in the excerpted view above.

Important Shipping Details
*Normal* Shipping Schedule:
We ship orders roughly bi-weekly; the first and third week of every month. Please plan accordingly! Unfortunately we do not have the ability to meet the expectation of amazon-speed order fulfillment. We are a small team trying to make this happen. We might make a mistake on your order. Please email us if this is the case. We will try to make it right. Thanks for understanding!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, shipping and email response times may be delayed. As a result of numerous factors, we are not able to make it to studio as often and have numerous other responsibilities and concerns to field. We are working through TXTbooks concerns as best as we can.
We ship via USPS Media Mail in the United States for bound publications, USPS First Class for posters and other non-bound materials.
International shipping is slow and expensive, as you probably know. We ship via USPS then international affiliates handle once in destination country.
Zines are mailed in stay-flat mailers.
Prints are mailed in stay-flats (letter) and mailer tubes (tabloid).
Stickers are mailed in envelopes.
Unfortunately we cannot process returns.
