Technique which has been around for over a hundred years, chromogenic prints are an absolute classic. It may also be referred to as silver halide print, or dye coupler, the chromogenic process can start from a colour negative, transparency or a digital image. This is one of the printing techniques that we offer within our spectrum of products!
Sometimes referred to as a C-Print, the chromogenic print process is in fact a chemical reaction of dyes exposed during development. Many layers of light-sensitive gelatin are combined with three dye colours (cyan, magenta and yellow). The reaction creates different colours in every single layer.
The Chromogenic Print is a classic photo reproduction technique having its comeback. Art photography will produced on C-Prints as unicums or short-runs (up to 100 prints). If desired available with certificate.
The prices for a C-print vary and depend on the photo paper and the size selected. If you order your C-print on Fujifilm paper, the price will start at £ 0.20. The price will vary the higher the quality of the paper or the larger the printing format should be (max. 300 x 180 cm).
We print photos on 5 different papers:
|Paper||Min. format||Max. format||Price from|
|Fujifilm Glossy photo paper (240 g/m²)||89x127 mm||305x407||£ 0.20|
|Fujifilm Satin (semi-matte) photo paper (270 g/m²)||89x127 mm||305x407||£ 0.20|
|Fujifilm Pearl (metallic) photo paper (290 g/m²)||89x127 mm||305x407||£ 0.40|
|Tetenal Silk (portrait) photo paper (290 g/m²)||89x127 mm||305x407||£ 0.30|
|Kodak Endura (260 g/m²)||89x127 mm||3000x1800||£ 0.30|
C-prints are available in over 30 different formats. In addition to classic formats, we also offer more specialised formats such as panorama or square. We also produce custom formats on request.
Depending on the quantity and format, your chromogenic prints will be delivered in either glassine sleeves, padded envelopes or shipping cartons. In order to avoid a curling effect, c-print photographs up to 45 x 30cm are delivered flat, whereas larger formats will be shipped rolled up.
We can produce your c-print with a 4 mm white border on request. This option can be selected during the ordering process to give the chromogenic prints a vintage look.
The decision is purely a question of taste. Fingerprints and smudges can quickly appear on glossy c-prints. On the other hand, glossy prints show off a greater depth of tone and have superbly brilliant colours.
If you want to frame your c-prints behind glass, however, a matte finish is preferable in order to avoid reflections.
