Open Access

Sunday’s provides open-access studio time for members to fulfill their own printing projects. The facilities are available for members to book throughout the week, these include a range of printing and binding equipment.

To access the studio and its facilities, you’ll need to complete a short induction session. Inductions run regularly throughout the year and are available to book on this page when available.

MEMBERSHIP & STUDIO USE

What do I get as a member?

*Access to printing and binding facilities

*Space to store in-process printing projects.

*Access to a lending library of books about printing.

*20% discount off our print-service, if you’d rather us print it for you.















How do I use the studio?

Once you’ve completed your induction, the studio is available to book via a members-only link.

You can book the studio as an individual, or a group of 2-4 people. All members of a group must have a valid membership card. For group bookings of more than 4 people, please do get in touch.

Open access bookings are partially supported, there will always be one of Sunday’s there to trouble shoot with you. However we do expect you to be using the equipment yourself.

All files should be brought on a USB stick, or if you prefer, as a black and white original to print directly from the scanner bed. We cannot link your computer with the Risograph machine nor the black and white printer.

Consumables such as paper and binding coils are available to buy from us. We stock a range of papers suitable for Risograph printing: recycled, uncoated and the correct texture to absorb the ink nicely. You can bring along your own paper or card to try it out, but it isn’t guaranteed that paper sourced elsewhere will work with the printer.

INDUCTIONS

A Basic Induction session will introduce you to the Risograph printing process, and how to use the studio. Members can then book into a Studio Essentials to learn more about how to safely use the collater, small booklet maker and guillotine. A Book-Binding session will show you how to use the perfect binder and coil binder.

The cost of the Basic Induction covers a group test run the Risograph and your first six months membership. Once you’ve done your induction, you will be allowed to book the studio via an online calendar which will be shared with you once your membership card is issued.
