Frequently asked questions
What is the differences between Risograph services you provide and publishing projects?
Risograph service is a print only service while publishing are full publication projects, usually editions of 50.
Publishing projects have a limited capacity as every publication will be handmade, from printing, binding to finishing.
Collaborations in design, content, etc. are also possible, depending on our availability and your preference. See our past projects here.
The following Q&A is mostly about publishing projects/ collaborations - please see Risograph if you’re looking for more about Riso printing!
What type of publications do you do?
We often make books, zines and occasionally special projects in various amounts of content and page numbers- we are quite flexible with it!
What type of work can you publish?
We publish various means of work in forms of publications- poetry, photographs, illustrations, graphics, research projects, etc...
Why do I often need to publish multiple copies instead of just an one off publication?
Since we are participating in multiple book fairs and distributing them in various ways, and to allow more cost effective options per publication; we advise artists that collaborates with us to often publish at least 20 copies, ideal is 40-50 for publications.
Can I keep some or most of my printed copies?
Yes definitely- depending on the budget, it would be either the artist or The Sandwich Club purchasing a certain amount of copies at unit price/discounted rate; and the artist and us keeps 100% of the profits made from their amount of copies.
Will my publication appear in book fairs or other distribution means?
Yes we will bring your publication to book fairs (if we manage to get a spot), as part of The Sandwich Club’s publications — unless you rather not to
