Do you have artists on your gift list this holiday season? Do you think they will be interested in Risograph printing their work?

Risograph Color Chart - Gift for Artists

Risograph printing is a very vibrant way of publishing new art work, and it can generate income for the artist with print sales. Now you can gift a membership to our Self-Publishing Artist Program. We have gorgeous color charts to showcase the possibilities of 2-color overprinting, and the artists will receive these color charts during the holidays as the start of their gift. Each sheet in the color chart is 11″x17″ and they show 7 different combinations. There are 6 sheets in the set, so it is more than 40 different combinations that the artists can pick from. The color chart alone is a great gift for an artist, and all the amazing prints they will create using this as a reference are a bonus gift, all year long.

Since this is a monthly printing program, this gift will keep on giving every month. The artists will receive an edition of 50 of their work in 2-color, starting in January. So this gift can be a part of their new year resolution too: “I will publish new print work every month”. If you think this is something they would say, the Self-Publishing Artist Program will be a great gift for the artist on your list.

You can use the coupon code “GiftForArtist” at checkout to get %50 off in December. This will cover the color chart shipment before December 24th, and the artist can start printing in January.

Do you have questions? Feel free to write to me at, and I am happy to help you with the decision. We can chat about the artist’s work and their needs. Self-Publishing Artist Program is all about empowering independent artists, so we share all of our experiences with the artists.

We also have prints for sale for everyone on your list, so don’t forget to take a look at our full collection.

We are SO EXCITED about this print sale!  Jerome Street Studios is hosting for the first time ever an ALL PRINT pop up shop, featuring the work of Susan Murie, Amantha Tsaros, Ted Ollier and Stephanie Todhunter.  We can’t wait to see the variety of different printing methods that will be on display:  cyanotypes, risographs, letterpress, limited edition, originals and digital.  Prices start at $20.


Susan Murie:

Susan Murie has lived in the Boston area for 40 years. She attended the University of
Massachusetts and the University of Texas studying Theater. At UMass Susan picked
up a camera and learned darkroom skills which began a concentrated interest in the
still image. She has been creating prints and layered paper collages with cyanotypes
since 2009. Susan enjoys traveling and spending time with her daughter in Chicago.

Amantha Tsaros:

Amantha is an exuberant native of Boston whose game attempts at disguising her accent are often successful and rarely appreciated.  She earned a BFA and MFA from the School of Visual Arts, NY.  She was engaged in independent study of etching and printmaking in Hamburg Germany for two years before returning to Massachusetts and her first love, painting.  She works in her Medford MA studio and is a member of the Cambridge Art Association.

Ted Ollier:

Ted Ollier was born in the midwest, lived in the south, and now resides in the northeast. He has been a photographer, graphic designer, bass player, typographer, web pioneer, informational leafblower and armchair philosopher. He has also worked a variety of day-jobs, the details of which are not terribly important.

Stephanie Todhunter:

Stephanie Todhunter is an interdisciplinary artist based outside of Boston, MA. Her work captures the “lost-in-place” feeling of 1970’s latchkey kids.
