What is Silver Halide Printing?
When it comes down to it, a shared tangible image with friends and family creates a bond. It’s a record of your life and experiences that show who you loved and where you left your footprint in life. Printing your photos also ensures there is a physical copy of your life. That’s a pretty strong statement if you think about it. Files can be corrupted, and the cloud can be hacked. You take pictures to remember moments, to become nostalgic, to laugh, to remember your loved ones. These memories are not meant to be password-protected and accessed only if there is a power supply. They are meant to be printed and shared for the next generation. That’s why printique offers silver halide printing.
Is All Printing The Same?
No, far from it. Printique is one of the few photography labs around that still uses traditional technology to create prints and books. The process is called silver halide printing. Silver Halide photographic prints are printed using light-sensitive paper and silver-based chemistry. The paper is exposed to light, and the image is infused into the paper through a chemical process.
Printique’s images with the Silver halide process are sharper, have more vibrant colors, depth, and better flesh tone reproduction than our competitors. Our competitors offer ink printing where the ink is applied on top of the paper. The image may shift slightly causing a loss of sharpness, and the final product is much more likely to fade or be susceptible to surface damage over the years.
Translation: Printique cares about your photos and wants to ensure they will become treasured heirlooms that can be passed down for generations, not just a fading memory. Want to know more about silver halide printing?
