Student Printing & Mounting Services

We appreciate that photography can be an expensive subject to study, so we’d like to offer a student discount on all our online services.

Spectrum Photographic has been working with students for a number of years, so we understand the importance of getting every detail just right! We pride ourselves on working with emerging photographers and artists to help them materialise their creative vision. Therefore, whether you’re looking to produce portfolio prints or create your final degree exhibition, we will work with you from the initial consultation right through to the date of dispatch.

We pride ourselves on the reputation we have achieved for ourselves; infact many of our long term customers’ first orders were placed as students.


“When you are trying to make the world sit up and take notice of your work, you have to consider every last detail. Spectrum are a company who understand that implicitly and bring a level of care and craft to your images that is difficult to match. With hearty discounts available to students and graduates, they are making a highly specialised service available to those just starting out. They’re ideal partners to work with in bringing the very best out of what you’ve created.”

Alec Dudson, Editor-in-chief, Intern Magazine

“Spectrum did a fantastic job printing Dominic Hawgood’s images for BJP’s International Photography Award, helping make an unusual exhibition look exceptionally slick and accomplished. They also went the extra mile for him in adding in some artists’ prints for sale, and this sums up the way they work – not only are they great at what they do, they’re friendly and helpful, and go the extra mile.”

Diane Symth, Deputy Editor at British Journal of Photography


Photograd has built a strong relationship with Spectrum since we launched in 2016. We’ve not only been able to collaborate with a superb, dedicated company, but be introduced to many industry professionals because of their work. The team are skillful, efficient, and always willing to lend support which is vital in this industry.

Why I Choose Spectrum


Alison Stolwood

MA Photography at University of Brighton

I used Spectrum’s services for printing and mounting my BA show and later for my MA exhibition. I have always found them very approachable to discuss work and costs.I know when working with Spectrum that I can be confident of the quality and care of printing and production for display.I have found them to be very professional and I continue to use Spectrum for my exhibition printing and mounting.

I had used Spectrum numerous times before my BA show, they always provided me with great quality digital C-Type prints. When it came to the rush before my show I wanted to use a company I could rely on to provide the quality I was after reliably and affordably. As a student I was never great at time management but when I placed an order with Spectrum they always did their best to get my prints to me within the very tight window I left them. Knowing you are having your prints printed and mounted by a top notch company offers some welcomed peace of mind when the pre-show and end-of-year stress is kicking in.

BA Hons Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth

For my graduation show in London I required a reliable, high quality and reasonable cost solution. I chose Spectrum as I’d used them previously, and had good reviews from other photographers. Since graduating I’ve used Spectrum on multiple occasions for exhibitions and personal projects. I can rest assured that my work will always arrive in excellent condition, on time.
