We print with a Riso MF9350 digital duplicator, which is a great machine capable of producing beautiful prints at a fast pace and with limited costs, especially at high print runs. The Riso MF9350 uses very little energy, and has a limited impact on the environment. We can print A3 posters, flyers, fanzines, business cards, books, album covers, you name it!
Risograph printing uses a unique palette of spot colours and inks made of an oil obtained from rice bran, a byproduct of industrial food production. As the colours do not follow the CMYK scheme, images printed with Riso will always look a bit odd. This non standard quality allows for a greater freedom when choosing how to render an image. Just like silkscreen printing, it is possible to overprint colours and obtain different gradients with Riso, thus increasing possible combinations. By clicking on the colours on the list, you can find the closest colour equivalents for your digital work.
While we offer various forms of hand binding at present, we will have some binding machines soon which will speed up some processes and broaden our binding services. Check this website for updates!
We try to have an increasing range of high quality papers available in various grammages. For now we have these kinds, but we can also order many other types. Given that the paper comes and goes, they might not always be readily available, so better ask before.
It's our basic printing paper. Grainy but not too much, warm feeling, tends to turn yelowish over time. We usually stock these grammages: 115 and 150 gsm.
100% recycled, bright white paper from Favini, whitened with chlorine free process. It shows the grain particles typical of recycled paper. Smooth and natural looking. We usually stock these grammages: 90, 120, 160 and 200 gsm.
Extra white, smooth paper, ideal for business cards and flyers. We usually stock these grammages: 240 and 300 gms.
Recycled, slightly greyish paper with a good absorbance. Ideal for posters to be glued, flyers, or pamphlets. We usually stock these grammages: 90, 120, 150 and 190 gsm.
