Studio Printing

If you are printing for an exhibition or looking to produce a limited edition print our studio team is highly experienced in a range of processes to help you achieve the highest quality results.

What we offer

Image corrections, retouching and manipulation

Our experienced staff can assist with a range of Adobe Photoshop techniques, from simple colour corrections to advanced retouching of your images. The prices in the table include checking of the file and basic corrections: overall colour/density and contrast. Resizing and adding borders. Additional work is charged at £15 + VAT per fifteen minutes.

Test prints and proofs

To ensure the final print is perfect before production we can print you test strips at full size or full images at a reduced size. 12 x 10″ C-type Matt, Lustre or Gloss proof print £7.50; 12 x 10″ Fujiflex/Metallic Giclée proof print £15.00 and all other Giclée paper 12 x10″ proof prints: £10.00. All prices + VAT. Larger sizes are charged at the online price.

Work in the studio with the team or remotely

We offer studio appointments where you can work face-to-face with a master printer. If that is not an option you can work with us over the phone or via email to create your final order.

Printing with the studio gives you additional print options not available with our automated online service. This can give you total control over your printing and peace of mind that we are overseeing the whole process.

With many years of experience with both analogue and digital printing, we have a keen eye for quality and can help you master your image for the perfect print. Give us a call on  +44 (0) 1273 708222 or email us on email us at to chat about how we can help.

Working with Spectrum Photographic and the team in different capacities over the years has always been a fantastic experience. For instance, the lab was responsible for printing Mariken Wessels' exhibition as part of Photo Oxford 2017, while I was artistic director alongside Greg Hobson, delivering quality results with the utmost professionalism. Their service is always friendly and prompt too, making our job that much easier as curators who are sometimes working within tight project timescales. In terms of the relationship with 1000 Words, Spectrum has been a much-valued and passionate supporter of the magazine, and our work at large, often through sponsorship and repeat advertising placements. I cannot rate them highly enough.
