Duratran Printing
Duratran prints – Durable Transparency

Professional Duratran Photographic Prints


One of the great features of our new Superwide Lightjet XL500 is the ability to produce mural size photographic Duratrans at a level of quality unmatched by anything else out there.

Duratrans (short for Durable Transparency) is a brand name of Kodak translucent-base film consisting of a translucent-base material, which allows light to diffuse through the image. This rich material brings an outstanding cinematic dimension to photographic stills. With new super-slim LED Lightboxes, Duratrans have become popular for artists, architects and interior designers as the image can be evenly lit from edge to edge, something rarely possible with florescent tubing, especially across a large area. Duraclear is simply the clear-base version of Duratrans, designed for use on light boxes that have diffusers built-in. Both these materials are especially suited to large exhibition or advertising displays as they’re very hardwearing.

Metro offers a unique super-wide Duratrans printing service on our 500XL Lightjet, meaning superb sharpness, colour saturation and an overall image quality unobtainable by any other process.


Professional Photographic Printing Services

 
Premier service

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.

This service is currently available as Premier only.
