Now printing YELLOW!
Each color for the Risograph process requires a separate drum. On certain discontinued machines, it's been a challenge acquiring used drums, often from Ebay and other sources, and then laborsome "converting" them to new colors. Essentially meaning, the old color had to be forced out of the drum by the new color. It was a waste of paper and ink. Yuck!

Now that the RISO™ has been re-popularized by artists and designers, the drums for the  RZ390UI are being manufactured NEW again! Getting new colors added to my growing color library (seen here)  will be quicker and much more smooth. Come to Risotpoia and see the colorful creations.
