Production Specifics

Out of the Blueprint offer Risograph Printing. Risograph printing is a low-cost, eco-friendly print process from Japan. Riso prints one colour at a time, so it doesn't print full-colour photos or glossy magazines, though colours can be printed on top of each other to create a layered image. They don't have a minimium order number, but Risograph is best for larger print runs (20+ copies). Riso prints up to A3 size and the available colours are black, blue, red, green and fluorescent orange. As a pricing example, 100 A5 flyers is £16.
