Our Process

After you send in specs, we provide you with an estimate, info about our process, and schedule options. We request a 50% deposit upfront to order supplies, and to confirm a week on our schedule. Once supplies arrive it takes about a week to complete a project. We can provide up to 3 test prints. Once a test is approved, we run the full order and hand deliver the next day.

Turnaround Time

This changes weekly. We are most often booked 2-4 weeks out. Reach out as soon as possible to guarantee a spot. We are unable to process rushed projects at this time.

Quality Control

Printing with a Risograph involves embracing imperfection. Below are a few common quirks you can expect.

  • Registration: For artwork that has 2+ ink colors, the alignment between 2 colors can be off about 1/16th of an inch.
  • Coverage: The ink will lay down with some faint ghost spots, and ink density will vary print-to-print. No two prints are exactly the same.
  • Banding: The ink pushes through 3 points on the screens, which can give the appearance of thicker coverage on the edges and middle of the paper. It's more noticable with dark ink colors.
  • Smudging: Soy ink dries on top of the paper, instead of soaking into it. It leaves a slight dust of pigment on top of each impression. It can smudge similar to newspaper. We recommend avoiding full bleeds on prints that will be handled frequently.
