The risograph printer looks like your standard Xerox machine.

It is not a new technology, with roots from the 1940s. In Singapore, schools and religious organisations use it to print documents and worksheets cheaply.

Mr Djohan Hanapi, 27, and Ms Marilyn Yunjin, 26, of risograph press Knuckles And Notch, first encountered riso prints at the New York Art Book Fair in 2011.
