I was recently introduced to the RISO Print Gocco B6-HM home screen printing kit by Andrew Hyde. He was getting set to leave for Startup Weekend Toronto and tweeted he was going to be screen printing the night away. I offered to help and next thing i knew i was having a blast.
The RISO B6 was designed to be an affordable home screen printing kit for school children and novices alike. But its simplicity allows for so much. Sure you can’t make a screen printing to fill a tshirt with but its still cool for marking things like the Moleskine Cahiers below. :)
Needless to say my screen printing urge/curiosity had been sparked and with Andrew’s warning that the B6 had been discontinued and could be found on eBay for like US$400, i still set out to find a B6.
In all my searching i finally found that the P5 was the replacement to the discontinued B6 and RISO had made a few improvements making the unit even more usable. With a price just over US$100 i can afford to embark on my own screen printing mischief. :)
