The WhiteWall photo lab was established in 2007 as one of the first online laboratories. Our photo service has focused on gallery quality from the very beginning. Prints, photo print, framings and mountings are our speciality. We are the exclusive supplier of LUMAS -the largest gallery for editions of contemporary photo art in Germany and Europa. We offer a range of different techniques for prints – including large formats. The most modern process is a UV-Print (sometimes also known as a fine art print, poster on demand or poster print). This involves printing the inks on the paper using a 7-colour process and then hardening them with UV light. This ensures a significantly better quality than many posters that can be ordered through most of the online providers. A Lambda print is a original photo print, which is developed using photo chemicals.
The Lightjet 500 XL is produced by Océ. For photo prints that are exposed using the Lightjet, we use a photo paper from Kodak, more precisely the Kodak Pro Ultra Endura photo paper for digital exposure. Those who prefer inkjet can order on WhiteWall large format premium pigment prints (inkjet prints) using Epson K3 inks. High quality papers are used: mould paper or Fine Art Pearl from Hahnemühle – a renowned specialist for photo paper. Today we no longer offer older photo exposure processes, such as Baryt prints or Ilfochrome prints. Whether through iPhone, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, or Leica - upload your best photography onto WhiteWall now and find out what your file can really produce. Our photo lab can produce impressive large formats from small megapixels. If photography is placed on backing material, e.g. on materials such as aluminium and plastic (Alu-Dibond), this is known as a mounting or sealing of the photo (also known as Lumabond on WhiteWall). We offer 5 different, modern processes for mountings and sealings, all from the same source. We also offer economical prints directly onto aluminium with our modern UV printer. The photo is printed directly onto the aluminium using a 7-colour process. The inks are dried using a UV light. Classic photo prints can also be sealed using an aluminium sealant (Alu-Dibond).
Mountings behind acrylic or acrylic glass (also known as Lumasec on WhiteWall) are particularly modern and popular. Acrylic glass has many advantages for mountings: It is break-proof, glossy, light and friendly, and with most photography creates an almost magic picture depth and elegance. Whether as a hobby, amateur, agency, architect, interior designer, photo studio, or professional photographer, if you would like your pictures to appear in the best light, you can’t go wrong with our modern, gallery-quality mountings. If you’ve previously hung a cheap poster or fine art print on the wall, you can now achieve perfection that, while on a budget, can match anything in a museum.
