Riso Print and Publishing Studio
Obra Press creates high-quality Riso prints out of Copenhagen, Denmark. In our small studio we help you finalize your printed matters - such as books, posters, flyers, business cards, menus, calendars and zines.
In January 2022 we finally opened a small corner café and store focused on showcasing printed matter, utilitarian crafts and sustainable products.
We operate a Riso model RZ570EP - a true one drum workhorse. A Risograph or Riso is a digital stencil duplicator first released in Japan in the 80's. It produces stencil paper prints using unique spot colour inks. It is low-cost, sustainable and appealing to everyone who values high quality, unique, tactile and vibrant prints.
Obra Press was founded with the intention of co-building and supporting already existing creative communities by creating a physical space with room for learning, experimenting and growth. In short, Obra Press works to make printed matter more accessible, more sustainable and more collaborative.
The word ‘obra’ in Spanish means a number of things. It is the work of our hands, a craft and labor, a construction or building site, a piece of art. Obra turns thoughts into actions. We chose Obra as a name because we think that words can act and that words have lives and materiality of their own. Obra Press does the labor of printing and distributing your imagined worlds, making them into a physical and tangible object to hold, cherish and share with others.
