Pamflett is open to artists who want to make your own publications. Contact us with your project: hei@pamflett.no

We also print smaller projects on demand, like flyers, pamphlets and posters.

Check calendar for upcoming workshops for introductions to risograph printing!

IMPORTANT FOR FALL 2023!

Please book your project in good time in advance! We are not a full-service printer and Fall 2023 we have limited staff due to parental leave.


An estimated time frame for productions could look like this:
Small jobs (posters, flyers): Ready print files needs to be sent to us at least 1 week before you need it
Larger jobs (booklets): 2-3 weeks in advance

Contact us earlier if you need guidance to prepare files for print.

We print only on Risograph, maximum size A3.

What is RISO?

The digital duplicator, also called risograph, from the japanese company RISO, is a unique “copy machine”. It combines the high speed of a copier and a silk screen like result. Printing one by one layer of color, with a color library ranging from flourescent to metallics.

Originally an office machine, and not really intended for the art market, the machine has quirks like challenging registration, smudging and not being able to print on anything other than bulky uncoated paper.

Greener prints

The Risograph is also environmentally friendly with ink based on soy waste material from rice farming and using little power compared to other similar printers, and where digital laser print is melted plastic. That is also why your prints look shiny even on matt paper. We print mostly on Munken papers, produced in Sweden at one of the worlds most sustainable paper factories.

Workshop

If you are a group of 4–6 people that want to learn to print with riso, please send us a request and we can make a workshop based on what you want to know or try out with the risograph!

Paper

The risograph can only print on uncoated paper, between 80–250gsm. We have a selection of different papers available, but you are also welcome to bring your own – as long as its uncoated and between the limits of paper weight. Recycled paper can have trouble absorbing the ink because it might contain fragments of plastic.

Paper size is maximum SRA3, and print size is A3.

We stock paper from Munken (usually Pure and Lynx) and can order other papers for your projects.
