The LightRoom, as a photolab, has been helping photographers and other artists get the best prints of their images since 1975. In the mid-1990s, were the first photolab in the San Francisco Bay Area to feature fine art quality inkjet (giclée) printing. From film scanning or photography of your artwork to the preparation of any digital file or simply working with your own printer-ready files, we can help you get the most from your work. Our services are further detailed in the links to the left.
The Discounts page details various ways to save money on our services when submitting pictures to us for printing. When we offer special pricing, on specific paper choices or services, for example, those offers can be seen by signing up for our email newsletter, or by following us on Facebook or Twitter. These are also the places to find information on our latest gallery shows and workshops.
The Printing link discusses in more detail aspects of the modern pigment inkjet process, as well as the specifics of submitting files for printing and a link to descriptions of the many papers The LightRoom stocks. I doubt you'll find any studio anywhere stocking more papers than we do, currently about 20 plus a new selection of Japanese digital papers. Obviously, a few lines of text or little web pictures of these papers won't do them justice, but we are happy to show them to you if you drop by, or even mail small printed samples of the ones you're interested in.
Many of our customers are artists looking to reproduce their originals and we can help with the photography of their art work as a first step to getting beautiful reproductions on our many different fine art papers. Please call for details on this service if you need help with this.
I encourage anyone with a question not answered here to call me. I prefer talking with people as the best way to offer specific help. The success of The LightRoom has always stemmed from the personal relationships of myself and anyone else who has worked here with our clients. This is true for anyone, whether they are quite capable of submitting printer ready files or they need assistance with any aspect of the process.
