Issue Press is a tiny publisher and Risograph print shop operated by George Wietor in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since 2011, it has worked with an elastic mandate to publish captivating works by artists of all mediums that trade in humor, history, and exploration of place.

In addition to publishing, Wietor has initiated several side projects dedicated to the growth of the international Riso community, including:; An Atlas of Modern Risography; and with Matt Davis of Perfectly Acceptable Press, Wietor is a co-founder of the North American Risograph Conference (NARC), a gathering of Riso devotees held biannually in Chicago, Illinois.
