Octopress 2023 Risograph Calendar
The 2023 Risograph calendar from Octopress is here!
This Risograph Calendar was designed, illustrated, printed, cropped and collated by hand on beautiful 100% Recycled 190gsm paper. For only £10 you get 12 months each with a super vibrant fruit illustration!! This years calendar is as limited as previous years, so this is your place to grab them! They’ve sold out the past five years so grab one while you can!
There are 12 different fruit illustrations, one for each month and comes with stainless steel clip. Pin up the calendar with the clip and switch the front out each month, then when the month is done, crop the bottom dates off then you're left with beautifully bright, colourful Riso Prints. This years calendar has had a huge redesign with lots of new illustrations and tweaks of familiar favourites.
This calendar was produced on a Risograph printer, it's a cross between a photocopier and a digital screen printing machine. It was produced in four separate Risograph colours, so each month has been through the machine up to 4 times to layer and blend the colours that have yielded such a unique and colourful calendar- they are as bright as they look... brighter in person in fact!
This calendar is 100% Eco friendly, produced with vegetable based ink and printed on 100% Recycled 190gsm Paper Stock. All illustrations are original, produced on a Risograph Printer on 100% recycled paper stock from Paperback paper, finished and collated by hand. Size if 29.5cm x 17.9cm Approximately.

Risograph is unique process, unlike digital printing, it is produced from 4 separate colour drums (so most months have went through the machine 4 times to get the final image) this produces vibrant colours which can't be produced on standard printers. There can be slight misalignments which is the aesthetic of the process and many people adore, and tiny halftone dots that produce the image (like pop art images).
Please note, calendars will be shipped from Octopress so if you order a calendar along with candles they may be shipped separately.
