Professional Photographic Printing Services
Black and white Lambda photographic prints
Metro worked in close collaboration with Harman Technology to achieve a solution to the problem of printing vintage archives digitally, rather than by hand. By adapting a paper processor for the Lambda, Steve Macleod, Creative Director at Metro Imaging invented a new type of digital black and white photo print. This innovation has meant we have lead the way in producing real fibre based and resin coated photo prints from digital files: something inconceivable ten years ago.
This service is available as premier and online prints only.
"Due to the nature of silver gelatin Fibre Based media including Harman Digital FB and conventional darkroom papers having inherent expansion and contraction qualities, we recommend not ordering any pre-cut mount borders or frames as the dimensions of this product vary slightly on completion of production."

The Premier print service
is aimed at clients who need more input than a simple on-screen check. This service begins with a meeting to establish the parameters of the brief. You are introduced to a production manager and printer, both of whom will stay with you for the duration of the job and indeed for the duration of your time working with Metro. The dialogue between yourself and the printer extends beyond the initial brief and emails and calls are passed back and forth over the duration of production.
Online photo printing
If you are happy to fully prepare your own file ready for printing and do not need the help of one of our technicians then Metroprint online photo printing
, our fully automated self service printing facility, could be for you. With Metroprint we offer C Type, or black and white, Lambda prints alongside Giclee prints and mounting services, all at online prices.
