A global leader in print solutions

RISO is a world leader in print solutions servicing 180 countries and regions.

Founded in Japan and listed in the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, RISO has developed a strong global reputation for its products and customer service.

Over the last 25 years, our reputation in the UK has also gone from strength to strength. We offer the highest quality printers, MFDs, Risographs/duplicators at competitive prices but perhaps most importantly, we take the time to analyse our customers’ needs and match the right solution to their unique printing specifications.

From creators of the revolutionary Risograph to pioneers of high-speed inkjet

Founded in 1946, RISO began as an ink manufacturer but it was the launch of our Risograph range in the 1980s that truly elevated our brand as a world leading print manufacturer and business solutions provider. With an unparalleled technical knowledge of the total print process, we’ve continued to innovate ever since.

RISO is now home to the world’s fastest A4 full-colour inkjet printer, and a high-speed (160ppm) A4 cut sheet inkjet production printer with the smallest footprint on the market. We’ve developed decades of experience working across a complete spectrum of markets in the UK, including production print, education, charities, political parties, offices, religious institutions and other commercial sectors. The key to our success is understanding the challenges you face and delivering high quality, cost-effective solutions to help you maximise performance and achieve your goals.

Research and innovation is at the heart of all we do

With our ComColor GD Series and the new FW models, we’re able to provide the fastest, low cost per colour page printing solution for businesses of all sizes. Our unique FORCEJET™ inkjet technology utilises an imaging system that requires no heat fusing during the printing process. With a simple paper path, every model is incredibly efficient and reliable, whilst our printers can also be enhanced with timesaving innovative features, such as stapling, booklet making, hole-punching, binding and envelope printing.

All of RISO’s printers are environmentally friendly and emit no ozone, silica dust or toner particles, so no special compensatory cooling or ventilation is required and our machines are also extremely power efficient. As a pioneer and continuous innovator in ink-based print systems, RISO currently owns over 1,600 global patents that contribute to our printers’ unique productivity, versatility, and cost efficiency.

We understand the need to “try before you buy” and that’s exactly why we’ve developed a fleet of demonstration vans. Kitted out like fully functional showrooms, our vans deliver innovative printers to your door, allowing you to see a range of models in operation. In addition to providing free demonstrations we can also carry out free no obligation print audits, assessing your existing models, speeds, cost implications, space, volumes and daily usage. Our friendly team will then use this information to create a detailed performance report, offering advice on how you can improve performance, reduce costs and maximise return on investment.
