︎︎︎Printing


Our main print method is Risograph. It’s a single colour print process a little bit like screenprinting. The machine prints up to A3 on uncoated papers. Each print can use many colours which are built up in layers. You can read more about our ink colours and how to prepare your files for risograph here.

We also have an A3 laser printer, which is best suited for high quality black and white printing. Ideal for book projects, or simple, low cost posters and flyers. It can also print in colour, but you may get better results by outsourcing to a larger scale digital printer. 

On both the Risograph, and our laser printer, we can print posters, flyers, leaflets, menus, invitations, cards, and more, cut down to any size below A3.
 

︎︎︎Binding & finishing


We offer a range of binding options in the studio, suitable for publications of all shapes and sizes. When binding your publications, we can combine pages printed on the risograph and laser printer, as well as any outsourced printing such as high quality digital colour printing.

︎ staple binding

Also known as saddle stitching. We can bind booklets of up to 80 pages (when using 80gsm paper), and of any customisable size from A6 to A4. Staple binding is ideal for both large volume print runs, as well as small editions and zines.

︎ perfect binding

We can make paperback books up to A4 in size. The maximum spine width is 38mm. We don’t recommend perfect binding publications of less than 44 pages. Our perfect binder glues single sheets together and wraps a piece of card around to make the cover and spine. It’s perfect for mixing together print methods, and is great for small to medium run publications.

︎ coil binding

A popular method which uses a chunky plastic coil and a series of holes to hold your paper together. Coil binding is suitable for publications of any length and size. Often used for calendars, or to add something special to a book project or portfolio. Like perfect binding, coil binding can bring together different print methods in the one package, and is appropriate for small to medium print runs. 

︎ special touches!

At Sunday’s Print Service we can also offer hot foil blocking and DIY thermography to add special touches to your print jobs.









Paper




Risograph machines can only print on A3 or A4 paper between 80 and 280gsm. Due to the nature of riso inks, we are only able to print on to uncoated paper.

We stock a range of papers suited to risograph printing and publication making. All our papers are recycled, FSC certified or otherwise donated, with the correct texture to absorb the ink nicely and bind neatly. It is not guaranteed that paper sourced elsewhere will work with our equipment and could cause waste and unsatisfactory results.

In addition to these in-house papers, we are happy to order in any special paper you require. When ordering paper in, we may ask that you purchase the whole ream, as it might be something we wouldn’t normally be able to use or sell. We regularly order heavier weights of Context colours, Pop’set and Colorplan on request.

Note! You can always check in with us to see if we have anything special left over from previous jobs and projects which might suit your purposes ︎

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.
