Founded in 2008 by the Toronto-based writer, designer, and educator JP King, Paper Pusher is a boutique publishing imprint, Risograph-driven laboratory, and print-culture advocacy organization.
As one of the first artist-run Risograph studios, Paper Pusher is more than just a printer/publisher. Over the years, it has been a publication laboratory, communication research center, and living classroom. Between 2010 – 2016, Paper Pusher worked directly with many notable clients to push the boundaries of what could be done using the unique Risograph process. Currently, the studio is focused entirely on internally-generated projects.
In 2014, JP King and his wife, Kirsten McCrea, joined forces and merged the efforts of Paper Pusher with Papirmass, a monthly print subscription service that delivers unique artworks, interviews, and activities to subscribers all over the world. If you like Paper Pusher, you’ll love Papirmass!
