Established in September 2017 the Print Lab has fast become the print lab of choice for artists exhibiting in both Sydney and regional galleries.

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.

Stock:
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.

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.

Colour Management:
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.
