C Type Professional Photo Printing

C Type Professional Photo Printing

Our C Type prints are produced with laser rather than LED printers, which creates a much sharper, high quality, real photographic print.

We only use professional photographic papers supplied by Fuji and Kodak using the classic C Type pure-matt velvet .

We are able to produce the largest and best professional C Type prints in the UK. Our prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches, giving you a huge choice when it comes to buying prints.

Why we choose a C Type print

C-type prints are ideal for personal and exhibition printing as they are the perfect ‘all rounder’ paper type, giving good colour rendition as well as clear black and white prints. All our C-type prints are produced on laser printers, giving optimum results for your images for colour accuracy, light fastness and archival quality.

What is a C Type print

A digital C-type is a photographic print that has been exposed using digital technology, rather than traditional analogue (otherwise known as ‘darkroom’) techniques. Digital C-types are created by exposing the paper using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb, like in a darkroom. The second part of the traditional process is much the same however: the paper is processed in a photographic developer, followed by bleach fix before being washed to remove the processing chemicals
