We’re Out of the Blueprint, a social enterprise in Leith

Our speciality is Risograph and Gocco printing – affordable, eco-friendly print with a unique aesthetic. We print posters, flyers, artwork, booklets, tote bags, t-shirts and more!

We exist to support young people. Any funds we make help us to provide training opportunities for young people with barriers to employment, and support young artists with their creative projects.

Every time you use our print service for your flyers, totes, posters or publications, you’re helping a young illustrator to produce their first comic, funding a traineeship for a young person with additional support needs, and supporting a new artist with their first exhibition.

Helping young people through the power of print.
