In 1987, when FotoTechnika opened its doors, photo prints and enlargments were either “machine prints” produced by a mechanical analog printer, or they were “custom prints” created in a darkroom under an enlarger. Today ALL commercially printed photos are “machine prints,” but now the question is whether the prints are made using a “wet” lab (with silver halide paper exposed to lasers or LEDs, and processed in photo chemicals) or a “dry” lab that utilizes either inkjet or dye-sublimation technology.
Our Noritsu minilabs offer the best of both worlds: high resolution digital scanning capability coupled with the tried-and-true traditional “wet” process, which can produce the smooth continuous tones that film is known for. The Noritsu’s high throughput capacity makes it an affordable option for long-lasting prints from locket size to 12”x36” panoramas.
Images can be adjusted to correct color, density and contrast as necessary unless the customer requests no adjustments.
Traditional photographic prints can be produced from a variety of digital sources including CDs, DVDs, USB drives, camera cards, scanned film or prints, digital files uploaded to the online photo printing service on our website, by emails, or an internet transfer service such as WeTransfer.
Images can be printed either borderless or with white borders upon request.
Images saved on the lab network are subject to purging or other loss. We highly recommend the inclusion of digital backups (CD or USB) when scanned or manipulated images are ordered.
Prints from unevenly spaced or overlapping film frames may incur additional charges.
