Print Options & Images
Whether it's in-house or sent to a print lab, everything we do is custom made. Colours and sharpening are matched exactly to the media.
For prints up to 48x33cm (19"x13"), we use our own gallery quality printer and ultra-high quality paper.
You can then frame it yourself, or if you already have one, it's worth letting us print precisely for that frame. It's more accurate and the image can be cropped in the most appropriate way (and there's no additional charge).
Using a professional printing Lab really does give outstanding results.
You can chose between having TrueLight deal with the whole process (including colour correcting and fine-tuning the image), or purchase the DVD and go to them directly – we’ll even tell you who we usually use : C41s Photo Imaging - http://www.c41s.co.uk/
Note - C41's usual customers are professional photographers. They're perfectly happy to deal with individuals, but are closed at weekends and the website is perhaps a little less slick than some more public facing ones. Rest assured their work is outstanding and we have no hesitation in recommending them. We have no financial arrangement other than as customers.
The DVD of images is yours to use as you wish, including of course printing your own. True photo printers really are very good, particularly if you have one which uses pigment inks rather than the more usual dyes (they are much more resilient and shouldn't fade - our system claims up to 200 years colour fastness!)
It's worth using top quality paper and making sure the colours are balanced and natural, but go ahead, it's great to see something you've printed well on the wall or mantelpiece.

Classic frames with borders are still popular, but there are now some excellent contemporary alternatives – box, block. hanging and floating to name a few. Mounting onto aluminium sheet or embedded in acrylic also looks fantastic. There are so many options and different suppliers, it’s simpler to discuss requirements and prices at the same time. The following is therefore for guidance only.
100 x 75cm 30 x 24 “ £140
60 x 50cm 24 x 20 “ £100

Some people love a water colour tone, and some prefer vivid colours which leap out of the frame. Very few photographers give you any choice about which tones and colours you prefer, and we think that’s a shame.
It may well be that you’re happy to leave all this to us, but if you’d like to chat about any of these things we can either arrange a planning session or discuss it at the shoot.
The software we use to catalogue and process the images makes it very straightforward to produce another set more suited to different devices and uses. If you’re happy for the images to discretely show our web address there is no charge at all, otherwise £10.
