Custom Photographic Printing Excellence
We have seen the world of photography change dramatically over the last 40 years. From our earlier days in the darkroom with trays and safelights to greater precision and automation with industrial processing equipment, culminating in our E6 processing which was the largest and most sophisticated between Boston and Montreal. Our heralded LightJet, this daunting, room sized steel box that exposed color photographic paper with the finest accuracy using lasers. And currently with our multiple output suite of the latest Epson 11-color photo printer; the newest series of HP Latex for backlits and specialty paper; and our UV curable flatbed printers, by Canon & Fuji which print directly on aluminum, wood, plastics, and boards up to 8×10’ at 1440dpi. In fact, our newest printer, the Fuji Acuity 28 uses two extra ink channels specifically designed for the absolute best photographic rendition.
We print on photographic paper, available in semi-matte and glossy, as well as 100% rag watercolor paper in smooth and textured finish, and cotton artist’s canvas. Aluminum wood, and acrylic direct panel printing is also very popular.
