The history of Photoprint ZONE is very much the history of Hein and Gus Waschefort since professional prints are done by professional printers (the man and the equipment).
After many years of deliberation and a keen observation of the 'photo digital print' development, Hein and Gus concluded that the latest digital printing technology has finally equalled and more than likely surpassed the analogue chemical printing systems. Especially concerning colour; the colour gamut with new high-end digital printers using multiple coloured inks surpasses the chemical system which is still restricted to three colour layers (some more advanced products have four layers).
Chemical (analogue) silver printing is however not ignored concerning black and white printing for art galleries. This is an extremely high-end service catering for some of the big art galleries which do not accept digital prints for exhibition. Our darkrooms are equipped with the very best enlargers and photo printing accessories.
We aim to offer the very best digital photo print, be it on; photo paper, fine art paper or canvas, using state of the art printers, colour calibrators software and densitometry technology.
A top print does not necessarily make it a top photo. Our services include professional advice and as part of our professional service we also print test prints and compare screen calibrations in order for all our photographer customers to get prints that really match what they see on the screen.
We operate in a conducive photography environment and pay individual attention to each photo to be printed.
Ultimately we strive to enhance your photography skills by producing prints of the highest standard at competitive, market related prices.
Our services also include an in-house 'Photo Finish' department for; canvas stretching, photo mounting and lamination (incapsulation). On the digital side we also offer high-end copying and scanning. Formal photography training is given at Visual Skills School which shares our premises in Pretoria North.
Please join us for a coffee and let us discuss and participate in expanding your photography horizon.
