The pride of Photo Central's printing services is our large format and fine art lab, run by our manager and printing guru Chris Insull. Whether you're looking to recreate old black and white 8x10, create a 40x60 inch colour print, or create a gallery collection to show the world your work, Photo Central can give you a product you can be proud of.
In our fine art lab, we offer a variety of papers and looks to suit your needs. Canvas, metallic, watercolour style photo rags, high quality pearl surfaces and more are available (see below). We use papers from Ilford, Canon, Hahnemuhle and more. Not all paper surfaces suit all images, so we will make sure that the paper you choose will be the best choice for the look you are after.
If you wish to see samples of what we offer, look no further than The Canadian Gallery, by Mike Grandmaison, which we are proud to host in our gallery space. All of Mike's prints are printed at Photo Central, and a number of papers and surfaces are featured. If you need mounting, laminating and framing, we can also assist you in these areas. Your options are based on the size and type of material used for your print. We can provide you with costs and options on a case by case basis.
Due to the precision and care we invest in your prints, we ask that you visit us with the file or negative you wish to have printed, so that we can look at what you have and suggest sizing and paper options. We want you to be involved every step of the way in crafting your custom print. If you must submit your file online, please contact us first.
