C-Type Printing

Digital C-Type (or 'Chromagenic') prints are ideal for both artists and photographers looking to produce stunning, dramatic photographic prints.

Digital C-Type (or 'Chromagenic') prints are ideal for both artists and photographers, either for personal or exhibition printing.

With their ability to produce stunning colour and dramatic black & white prints, C-Type printing involves digitally exposing the image directly onto a special light sensitive paper before finishing with a traditional photographic darkroom process (not to be confused with the high-res digital ink-jet printing of a Giclée, which doesn't involve any chemistry or light sensitivity).

Prints are made from a digital file rather than film or a negative, allowing for greater control over the final image but still producing the finely balanced, rich and vibrant yet subtle tonal variation of the traditional analogue process, with unparalleled depth in shadow detail. The resulting uniform spot size and shape means that even toward the edges and corners the image remains as razor sharp as the centre - a finish impossible with any other optical printing technique.

We work with the best photographic printing specialists in the UK and have dedicated project managers on hand who can assist you with fine tuning your prints to get them looking perfect every time. 

Our C-Type prints are produced using RGB lasers (as opposed to inferior LEDs), which creates a much sharper, high quality, true photographic print.

All our C-Types are made using a specially selected range of professional Fuji Crystal Archive and Kodak Endura photographic papers, including classic semi-matt, gloss, pure-matt velvet and metallic papers.

We are able to produce the largest and highest quality professional archival C-Type prints in the UK, using a Durst Lambda - (up to 400 ppi, equivalent to a resolution of 4000 dpi) producing images with the highest possible resolution available in the industry, and over 68 billion colours!

Or alternatively using an Océ Lightjet 500XL for widths over 48 inches - allowing us to go all the way up to 120 x 72 inches.

We are also able to scan from original film or large format negatives up to 22x18 inches, or 35mm slides if required, using top-of-the-range Fujifilm drum or Kodak IQ Smart flatbed scanners with ultra-high optical resolutions.

Capable of capturing very subtle details from film originals and producing scans with exceptionally smooth tonal gradients. Scans are usually produced at 600dpi or 300dpi, depending on the process, but we can produce higher or lower dpi's on request.
