- Black and white Piezography® inkjet prints and large format color pigment prints
- Creation of high-definition digital negatives
- High-resolution digitization on professional scanners

The careful attention devoted to the choice of paper, to the printing processes and to the preparation of chemicals are the subject of continual research and improvements.   PLATINUM-PALLADIUM PRINTS
For platinum-palladium prints, the laboratory has been upgraded last year with an exposure unit allowing to make prints up to 1.10m wide and 2.10m long.

For inkjet prints, the workshop has been recently equipped with a new BW Epson/Piezography® large format printer allowing formats up to 1.10m wide. Furthermore, a 12-color Canon large format printer of the same width is equally part of our new equipment. It produces excellent renderings on mat, satin or glossy paper.

We’re continually expanding our wide variety of papers that can be used for all printing techniques by importing paper from Japan (washi), South Korea (hanji) and Europe. These papers are made from kozo, mitsumata, gampI, bamboo, cotton, linen fibers, etc... They weigh from 3.6 to 1170g/m2.

High standards that are maintained by listening and dialogue.   The singularity of a photographic project and the understanding of an artist’s needs demand constant exchanges via current communication tools.

Combined with the rigorous mastering of printing processes, these exchanges allow us to accomplish in optimum conditions the rendering of an image according to the intentions of the photographer or sponsor.
