Come and join a behind-the-scenes tour of JAM, one of Japan’s largest Risograph studios!
For the first time, JAM will be holding an English version of the “JAM TOUR”, in which our team will walk you through our studio and store in Osaka. This tour will guide you through all the fun things we offer at JAM, from Risograph printing to our original screen printing kit. Plus there will be a choice of receiving our SPECIAL GIFT PACK with our original print samples which are usually only available in Japan. It will be livestreamed on Zoom so that everyone can join from all over the world. Let’s all get together and connect through Riso and screen printing!
All about JAM TOUR
The JAM TOUR includes
・A quick introduction to JAM
・An introduction to our original screen printing kit SURIMACCA, with a live screen printing demonstration
・A guide tour through our Risograph studio, RETRO PRINTING
We will show you around the store and workspace. There, we will give a quick demo on how to use the SURIMACCA, our screen printing kit, from building the frame, stretching the screen and finally printing samples. You might be surprised to see how easy screen printing can be with SURIMACCA! Also we will give you a quick intro to all the fun things that we have at our store.
We will take you on a tour of the RETRO PRINTING studio, which is usually closed to the public, where we will explore the basic functions of the Risograph machine, doing some test prints on spot. We will also introduce you to the various types of finishings and bindings, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at Tsuyapuri, the glossy thermographic printing process.

JAM TOUR is for
EVERYONE! If you are new to Riso or screen printing and would like to know more or interested in how a Riso studio runs in Japan, we would be more than happy to have you and encourage you to pop in. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the tour, so please use this opportunity to ask us anything about RETRO PRINTING or SURIMACCA. We would love if this event will become a platform to share and communicate about Riso and screen printing!
