Topo Copy is an ‘openlab-research-center’ for print, zines, paper, copy, ink and art … with a selfpublishing label & (zine-)library, activities such as workshops, lectures, interventions and expo’s. We run an ‘open atelier’ with machines for creation using ink and paper. We print Riso.

Riso Printing at Topo Copy


Some time ago we stumbled upon … fell in love with … and got ourselves a RISO RP 3700. A single drum machine, which means for each pass through the printer a single color is printed.

We print Red, Blue, Green, Brown and Black up to A3-format. Get your designs together and print your own RISO – Selling prints is a great way to make some easy money as an artist in times of crisis.

Steamroller Printing

Doing it with a Steamroller

Every year Topo Copy, Helix and Het Miat team up to make giant prints, not on a press but on concrete with a steamroller, a type of heavy construction machinery used for flattening/compacting surfaces, such as roads…

2012 / 2013 / 2014 / 2015




RISOGRAFIA the sequel. Once more we made a two-colour series of RISO prints with 27 different artists. Again we pulled the paper twice through our beloved RISOGRAPH (RP3700), this time once for blue and once for green cold soy-ink.
