File Preparation


︎︎︎Risograph printing


︎ Black and White (or Grayscale) hi-resolution PDFs (at least 300dpi)

︎ We need one file PER colour. It is important to include the colour you intend for each layer in the file name. For example:

ABC_ARTWORK_A3_YELLOW.pdf
ABC_ARTWORK_A3_BLUE.pdf


︎ We require 5mm bleed on any full bleed designs and remember to add crop marks so we know where to trim.

︎ Please be aware that the Risograph’s maximum paper size is A3, and it cannot print all the way to the edge of the page. Allow an 8mm border around all artwork.

︎ For more information on setting up your files for Risograph see our guide.



︎︎︎Digital printing


︎ Hi-resolution PDF of your print file or files.

︎ We require 5mm bleed on any full bleed designs and remember to add crop marks so we know where to trim.

︎ Please note, much like the Risograph, the maximum print size is A3 and our digital printer cannot print all the way to the edge. So please anticipate this in your design.





︎︎︎Publications


︎ Hi-resolution, single page PDF of your publication.

︎ If you are using Risograph, we will require a single page PDF per ink colour.

︎A seperate PDF of your cover if you are using the perfect binder. Speak with us in advance about spine width before you finalise your design.

︎ It is helpful to see a digital mock up of all publication projects.
