Frequently Asked Questions

What printing machines do you use?

We use state-of-the-art NORITSU digital minilabs.

What type of paper do you print on?

Our C-Type photos are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Supreme professional photographic paper. If you require a different paper type, please contact us to discuss your needs before placing your order.

What is a C-Type Photograph?
C-Type photographs are traditional photos made in a darkroom using light sensitive photographic paper and chemicals using the chromogenic process. The light sensitive photo paper is exposed to an image using an enlarger bulb and then placed in chemical baths to expose and fix the image. Digital C-type photos are created using the same method, but instead of an enlarger bulb, the light sensitive photo paper is exposed using a laser. Once exposed, the photographic paper is then subjected to a number of photographic chemicals to produce a stunning, long lasting professional photograph.

What paper finishes do you offer?

We offer both GLOSS and LUSTRE (matte) finishes.

What sizes can you print?

We can print from 6"x4" upto 12"x36".
