As of the 1st of Jan 2016 – Durst Phototechnik, have now stopped all upgrades, R&D and spare parts for their Silver Halide machines.
This decision not only affects The Printing Lab but every other Pro-lab in the world that has a Durst Lambda or Epsilon printer.
We believe this decision will eventually lead to the gradual end of silver halide printing within a decade. We have 3 wide-format Durst machines still in operation and we will continue offering silver halide printing as long as possible.
Moving forward The Printing Lab will focus on inkjet technologies for our photographic and signage needs.
We have invested into 4 wide-format hi-resolution inkjet printers, three pigment ink and one hi-resolution eco-solvent 7 colour printer.
With the advancements in paper and ink technologies, inkjet prints match and in some cases surpass the traditional silver halide prints.
