C-type printing

Ag is one of the few labs capable of making C-Type prints up to 50"/127cm width. C-Types are the ultimate professional photographic print available today and are the only option for continuous tone colour printing from a digital file or film original. They capture nuanced detail no other print process can deliver and boast superb archival longevity from their silver halide formula, whether the image is colour or black and white. As the image has been exposed into the photographic emulsion, C-Types deliver images with a depth to them missing from ink based prints.
