Lambda C-Print


Lambda C-Print

The first commercially chromogenic print process was introduced by Kodak in January 1942. Some years later the same company introduced a chromogenic paper with the name Type-C but it has been discontinued several years later. The name Type-C and C-print have remained popular since then. The chemistry which has been used to develop chromogenic prints, is today known as RA-4. The last years, prints are exposed by using digital exposure systems such as the Durst Lambda, a digital C-Type print which usually called “Lambda C-Print”. Lambda uses RGB lasers to expose light-sensitive material so as to produce a latent image that is then developed, using conventional silver-based photographic chemicals (RA-4).

C-Print is the first choice for photo prints, art exhibitions, interior decoration and advertising applications. In 1999, Photolab installed the first Durst Lambda 130 in Greece. Since then we are the only lab which continues to offer high quality C-Prints in a large variety of light-sensitive materials. Lambda C-Print offers top quality with excellent gradients, tonalities, high densities and extra durability concerning usage.

All of our print services and products have a lifespan more than 50 years as this is defined by the manufacturers, provided that they maintained under strict conditions such as indoor space, no sunlight or radiation, 20˚C - 28˚C temperature and 60% humidity. Any deviation to above may reduce the lifespan and affect the print quality. Under normal sunlight exposure, lifespan can be reduced to less than 10 years.
