Our Story

Founded in 1993, and now nestled into a historic building alongside Hove Station, Spectrum have grown into one of the UK’s leading printing and finishing centres. Specialising in archival mounting, fine art and photographic printing, and offering Giclee and C-Type printing alongside a range of museum and exhibition quality services, we pride ourselves on the passion that our small team has for everything that comes out of our studio. Customer service is our forte, and if needed, we hold our customers hands from beginning to end.

The years have seen many changes in the industry, but Spectrum still prides itself on the bespoke service that we offer to each and every customer that comes to us for our award-winning services. Having worked hard to become authorities in our craft, we love to share our skills and knowledge with the artists that we work with.


Why I Choose Spectrum


Simon Norfolk

“Having worked closely and built a relationship with the printers at Spectrum over the years, we speak the same language. They understand the look I am trying to achieve and I know they will get the best results from my images using the latest technology and their years of experience. Now that my files are archived at Spectrum my galleries can order prints while I’m shooting on location, and they’ll be waiting for signing on return from my assignment.”

Five Questions with Mariama Attah, Programme Curator at Photoworks

This week our Five Questions are with Mariama Atta, the Programme Curator at Photoworks: You have previously organised and co-ordinated exhibitions and events at Iniva. How did you find developing the programme for your first Brighton Photo Biennial? Programming my first Biennial was a steep learning curve but this year’s theme of Communities, Collectives & Collaboration meant there was always a range of partners, curators and artists on hand to ask for advice.
