Why Silver Halide Printing?

Print images that stand the test of time..

At a time when choice is something that we all expect when we purchase any product, there are some Professional Labs reducing that choice and abandoning traditional silver halide photographic printing in preference to the press printed process. This may be more cost efficient for the lab, but unfortunately it reduces your options and forces you down a particular track. Whilst these machines have their place for certain products, they do not provide the same look and feel of a photographic print.

The team here at The Edge have been providing professional photographers with high quality printing and professional service for the past 17 years and we are committed to offer a variety of printing options to provide you the ability to choose whichever product is best suited to your application. That maybe printing onto our range of Fine Art Papers or Canvas via inkjet, or duplex press printed products such as Greeting Cards, Photobooks, Flyers and promotional products. However, be reassured that we also offer what we believe to still be the bench mark in photographic quality; silver halide prints.

Flesh tones, neutral tone scale, colour reproduction and high image permanence are key requirements that Professional customers expect in a professional colour paper. Add to this a durable surface and you have a product that has stood the test of time.

If you are looking for a complete solution, we offer a variety of mounting and other presentation products to ensure your images are presented with that professional touch keeping up with the times with what’s new while also offering more traditional options.

In addition to our printing and presentation services, we still develop film, scan negatives and slides, and provide colour correction and retouching. In recent times we have also added RAW File processing, file editing and Album design to assist those who do not have the time or prefer not to be constantly sitting in front of the computer and provide an easier workflow.

We also offer Australia the beautiful range of digital press products from the White House Collection which complements our current imaging products and services.

If you are looking for something that sets you aside as a photographer from many others, we still believe offering silver halide prints and albums are somewhat of a specialty. You can also be rest assured knowing that you have provided your clients with the highest quality professional product that will last for a lifetime as it has been printed by specialised staff with years of industry experience and technical expertise in colour management using the industries finest professional grade papers and chemicals.
