MsMenzies riso studio
MsMenzies riso studio will open soon, with a MZ1070 machine and 6 colour drums!
As well as printing artwork, we are planning to offer a zine publication and promotion service : we would like to build a zine collection and help artists create high quality zines/comics with us that we would then promote and sell through various channels -online, in shops, at fairs...
If you are a regular riso user, could you please take 5 minutes to answer this survey? That would really help us in our dream to make MsMenzies the best zine publisher and riso printer ever!
We really want to understand your riso needs and hear about your ideas and opinion.
If after answering this survey (for which we are eternally grateful), you would like to talk to us in more detail about what your ideal riso studio and zine publishing would be, don't hesitate to be in touch for a one to one video chat with us, we'd love to talk about this with you!
Thank you so much for your time and don't hesitate to share this survey far and wide!
With slightly misregistrated riso love,
MsMenzies' team (Catherine and Cécile)
About us: We are British/Canadian artist C.A.Hiley and Belgian/British illustrator Cécile Simonis. We have a long-standing love of making zines and artist books, using Riso as well as screenprint and digital print. In our different styles, we both love to use visual storytelling and the intimate nature of the book format as a means of inviting laughter, reflection and transformation. You can discover our work here:
We also have plenty experience as printmaking technicians and in the sales and promotion of artwork and books in shop and gallery settings, online and at fairs.
