Saving schools money with cutting edge print technology

With greater budget pressure, growing classroom sizes and a need for rapid and reliable printing, RISO can work with you to create the right solution for your setting.

Over the past 3 years, 91% of schools in England have had their ‘per pupil funding’ cut, according to The School Cuts coalition. We understand the uphill struggle UK schools, nurseries, colleges, academies and universities are currently facing, especially in terms of adapting to new technology and improving productivity. No matter how complex your requirements may be, we can help you print with improved quality, reliability and versatility – with an eco-leading performance.

As the UK’s leading print provider to the education sector, we’re best placed to deliver tailored solutions, saving teachers valuable time. Working closely with you, we can explore your unique challenges, opportunities and priorities, whilst utilising innovative print technology to bring out the best in your teachers and students.

Low cost, fast educational printing solutions

The RISO ComColor Series:
A perfect match for teachers

Our ComColor Series is designed to deliver greater productivity and exceptional quality for schools, academies and universities. Independent evaluations have proven the RISO ComColor Series to be virtually unmatched by any other device in its class for low running costs, whilst our award-winning technology also improves the overall experience of printing and copying – so you can say goodbye to disruptive paper jams and long queues at the printer! Colour plays an important role in learning, so rather than feeling the need to hold back and accept monotone displays, we can help you maximise colour whilst maintaining low printing costs.
