Attention to detail:
The Print Lab is committed to high quality printing and prides itself on attention to detail. We believe the success of the lab is our collaborative studio environment where clients are encouraged to discuss their individual printing requirements and smooth over any questions before to printing. All files are soft proofed and check for discrepancies that may lead to poor quality prints, should we discover any issues you will be notified prior to printing. We can assist in file preparation, colour management, sizing and print material options. Please feel free to ask for our Preparing Your Files Ready to Print information pack. All prints are trimmed and inspected for quality assurance prior to packing.
We offer a range of premium and general purpose printing options. Our canvas and premium fine art paper are Hahnemuhle, Canson and Sihl with general printing on Epson and HP. We print on 44inch, 42inch and 24inch rolls as well as A2 and A3+ sheets (limited stock). Our HP Clear film is a popular choice for printmakers looking to create large positives in preparation for screen printing.
The Print Lab comprises of two large format high resolution inkjet printers. Our Epson SureColour P9070 with its enhance gamut and use of genuine UltraChrome HDX all-pigment aqueous inks teamed with our custom ICC profiles ensure your fine print quality is well taken care of. Our HP Designjet Z2100 Photo printer has an embedded spectrophotometer providing custom ICC profiles for our general purpose papers and supports our fast pick-up turnaround.

The Print Lab is all about Colour Management. What is colour management? Colour management is a set of processes we follow when handling colour information between capture, edit and print workflows. These processes allow for colour accuracy and high quality fine art prints. The Print Lab’s colour management work flow is supported by a calibrated Ezio monitor and ICC custom profiles aligned with professional colour management processes.

I have been never happier with the professional quality of my student’s artwork. Being a rural school, we struggle to access quality printing. Amanda was extremely helpful in ensuring that the artworks were of the highest quality and she offered professional assistance every time. The artworks were completed in an efficient timeframe and I would happily recommend the Print Lab to everyone. This is just the beginning of an exciting relationship between the Print Lab and our school.

We were really happy with our experience working with the NAS Print Lab – being remote and unable to see proofs or paper stock in person we had to rely on their expertise over the phone and email, and we weren’t disappointed. The staff were extremely thorough and responsive to our needs from the initial enquiry through to arranging a quote, printing and arranging the delivery of our order. Amanda was approachable, super attentive and did a brilliant job – we’re very satisfied.

Mimili Maku Arts is an Aṉangu owned and governed contemporary art studio located on the APY lands in remote South Australia. Working with NAS has allowed Mimili artists to work beyond remote studio limitations and develop new ideas. In particular the print lab has been of great assistance to staff and artists alike, with reliable phone and email support and a quick turn around with high quality results. Our work with NAS and the print lab has just started and we are excited for an ongoing relationship and all the possibilities it will bring.

I couldn’t have been happier with my dealings with NAS Print Lab! I’ve been a colour management consultant since 2001 (so I use colour-managed workflows everyday) and I have to say, the print work I got from NAS was absolutely bang on. Printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper, my images just sang.
