Photolab made its first steps in the market in 1979, the period of absolute analog photography. Since then, it has been investing in equipment, knowledge, best partners and human resources. At the end of the 80’s Photolab was already one of the most conscientious, efficient and quality greek photo labs. In the middle of 90’s Photolab’s team decided to include to its existing equipment, digital technology and services. During the last 15 years Photolab’s structure, equipment and services completely changed. The analog period became history and lots of digital hardware, printers, cutting systems and services are now a daily routine.
In 1992 Photolab installed first in the greek market one of the first ink jet plotters. In the middle of 90’s set one of the best film recorders, Kodak LVT, and in 1999 the first Durst Lambda 130, the best worldwide printer.
