Riso is a print process that is a cross between digital duplication and screen printing. Color is printed one at a time, and fluorescent inks are unique to Riso. It’s also eco-friendly – the inks are soy and vegetable-based, and the machines use little power. Tour Next Chapter’s Nob Hill location (working studio and gift shop) and watch a demonstration of the printing process.
Next Chapter Studio specializes in Riso-printed cards, stationery, and art prints. They design, print, and assemble all products in their Albuquerque studio. Next Chapter Studio was founded by Lauren Harms and Brian Gilbreath in New York City in 2018 and moved to Albuquerque in 2020.
