Epson Surelab D3000 Lab Prints
The Epson Surelab D3000 is a new technology “DryLab” printer developed on Epson’s tried and true Ultrachrome inkjet printing platform. These prints exhibit unparalleled colour gamut and clarity compared to traditional silver halide based lab prints. The ink set used is Ultrachrome D6, producing a archival quality print rated to 75 years, with no gloss differential.
Our standard print surfaces are lustre and gloss, although matte is available for an additional fee. Traditional and 35mm photo sizes are available as well as panoramas up to 12x48” (30.5x122cm). Prints can be exact size*, borderless or have a small 3mm border. Borderless prints will auto expand by about 3% so image details near the edge of the frame will be trimmed off. Please allow for this in your cropping.
This process is low cost, high quality and high volume, capable of up to 650 6x4” prints per hour, ideal for wedding, portrait and school photography markets.

- If sending images via Hightail, please separate your images into folders based on image size and surface. For example, if you have 10 8x12” lustre images and 40 6x4” gloss images to print, create a folder called 8x12” Lustre and a folder called 6x4” Gloss. This will allow us to process your order much more efficiently.

- Please specify if you wish for a small border to be printed on your image or if you want the image borderless. If the image is true borderless, you will lose approx 3-5% of the outside of the image in trimming.
- When sending files via Hightail please still use the folder structure above. To further increase efficiency place all the folders into a ZIP file and send that single file from which we will decompress and extract the folders and files.
