We plan to continue expanding our colors in the near future, but if you’re interested in printing a color we don’t currently offer, we may be able to recommend a layering method with two or more colors to achieve your desired effect.

PAPER TYPE, SIZE, & WEIGHT


We recommend printing on uncoated paper stock ranging in weight from 60 lb. text to 65 lb. cover, though we may be able to accommodate certain other paper weights with prior consultation.

You are welcome to provide us with printing paper at no cost, though we ask that you anticipate for extra test sheets. We are also happy to offer you our own paper stock at three different levels, depending on the needs of your artwork. For more information about this, please reach out to us using the contact form, and we can consult with you on your project!

Our RZ 590 and RP 3105 machines are capable of printing up to 11” x 17”, while our GR 2750 can print up to 8.5” x 11” (with limited ink offerings). Keep in mind that the Riso does not allow for full bleeds at this size, and plan for a minimum 3/8th (0.375) inch margin on artwork, including crop marks.

If you are interested in printing full-bleed artwork, we are able to trim down for a small additional cost. In these cases, maximum artwork size is 10” x 16” including crop or registration marks.

HOW SHOULD I SET UP MY ARTWORK?


PSD and AI files are preferred, with each color separated onto its own individual layer, similar to the process for screen print. While we can prepare your file from flattened files such as JPGs or PDFs, we ask that you submit each layer as a separate file. Production on files in order to separate or adjust the artwork will add a small additional fee to your project’s cost.

Our team is committed to bringing your project to life, so if you have any questions about file setup or the printing
capabilities, don’t hesitate to ask!
