Out of the Blueprint

Covid-19 restrictions

Edinburgh is in COVID Protection Level 4 with current restrictions essentially returning us to a position similar to the lockdown of last March.

We are temporarily closed to the public until further notice, but we very much hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

Stay safe and well.

Latest news from Out of the Blue Arts and Education Trust.

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, 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 make brilliant things.


Soy ink, recycled paper and 90% less energy than photocopying – our riso is the greenest printer in the world.


As a social enterprise, we’re not in it for the £££. We want to support young artists and make the world a better place.


Riso was invented for cheap print! Prices start from £16, with economy of scale making it best for runs of 50+ prints


Print locally and reduce your carbon footprint while keeping your pennies circulating in the local economy.
