Launching Metroprint

20 July 2011
It’s everything you always liked about Metro, now online at affordable prices.

METROPRINT is for time-hungry, cost-conscious Photoshop-skilled photographers who want work prints, a portfolio or even an exhibition for a fast and neat webby price. METROPRINT is a new brand with attitude and a whole new agenda.

For some time now we have been noticing a wave of photographers, young and old, who are getting very computer savvy (some might even say, geeky). So we have been quietly plotting our own shiny new site aimed at Pros, semi-professionals, students and serious amateurs who want to take advantage of the skill and expertise at Metro, now at affordable online prices.

Crafting a balance between technical know-how and fun the site features easy-to-use tutorials in Photoshop, designed to be interactive with users encouraged to share their ideas with us and each other throughout.

Ben Richardson, Managing Director said: “This is an exciting time for us at Metro. Since the 1980s, we have continued to evolve and adapt to the ever changing industry and the launch of Metroprint marks the next phase, making it more convenient for photographers to access our portfolio of specialist print services online.”

Ben continued: “Metroprint is the outcome of a long and serious process of weighing up the key features that would be most useful to photographers looking for an online printing solution. We hope to win new clients through good customer service and excellent prints. We hope to be defined by quality and superior technology: these are the strengths that have built our reputation on for the last 30 years.”

So what’s special about Metroprint? We think it wouldn’t be boasting to say that we know a thing or two about colour-management, not to mention service and delivery. But here’s a run down of the features that really set us apart:

Genuine black and white printing

Using our innovative process of digital Lambda printing to genuine Ilford black and white silver gelatin photographic paper, Metroprint will be an easy way for photographers everywhere to take advantage of this specialist black and white printing service.

Supersized prints checked by trained technicians.

Metroprints are produced in Clerkenwell at our headquarters, so all images are checked by professional technicians. Any supersized (over 60”x 60”) prints are checked by technicians to ensure the fileformatting, borders and colour are absolutely correct before going to print. This gives you peace of mind, and saves you money and time.

Technicians available through Metro

If you think you would prefer to have a printer work on your files, you can upgrade to Metro Imaging’s full range of services, with technicians available to format your files, produce test prints and work in a traditional lab environment to your specifications.

Laser, not LED printing

Although many may not realise, Laser printing is still nearly 4 x the resolution of LED printers and at Metroprint you will have nothing else.

Great prices

You guessed it: the automated production work flow of Metroprint is reflected in the cost of a print. Metroprints are significantly lower than those produced with technicians at Metro Imaging, making Metroprint a significant player in the market of colour-managed online printsites.

So roll up….! It’s fast…it’s big…it’s black and white…it’s laser printers…it’s everything you like about Metro, now online at affordable prices.
