First of all Riso printers only eat uncoated paper :)
WEIGHTS OR HOW THICK THE PAPER IS
We stock uncoated paper from weights around 90 g/m2 to approx. 270 g/m2. Ask us what we currently have in stock, or might be able to order from one of our suppliers.
Depending on your project different weights might be appropriate. If you are unsure of what paper to get feel free to ask us or order a paper sample of our house stock.
TONE & COLOUR
We currently use Metapaper and their paper Rough, Extrarough and Extrarough Recycling range. They come in the tones cold white, white, and warm white. As house paper we stock their warm white and white paper. Read more about Meta here.
We also have a few different options of coloured paper and can always order more colours in for you. It might sometimes be a better solution than printing large heavy ink background colours. See possible colours from Meta here.
NB! The colour of the paper you choose will effect the colour of the inks.
We can send you a paper sample of our house stock paper for 22 DKK (the price of postage) or you can pick one up for free at our studio.
YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN
You are also always welcome to bring your own paper. As long as it is uncoated and within the weight range Riso printers can eat.
We care a lot about sustainability at Obra, which is one of the reasons why we currently use Metapaper. All their paper comes from either FSC or PEFC certified wood or recycled materials and are produced with green energy. For a quick break down of their practices read here and for a more extensive one dive in right here.
We are currently looking into grass paper and other sustainable options as well. If you have any tips please let us know! We always love to learn new and sustainable ways of printing for you.
