Print types


Color images where tradionally made as C-Prints (chromogen), since the 50’s it’s a standard method to enlarge color images. Since the mid 70’s Ilfochrome Paper (syn. Cibachrome) was used, a very long lasting paper, which has a special sharpness and gives the image through the metallic effect a more dimensional look. Most photographers nowadays take advantage out of new technologies and use lambda or light-jet printer (laser technology) to enlarge their color images on a varity of modern papers. Those C-prints are suited perfectly for any individual size up to 180x300cm / 70x117inch. Sometimes large format prints can have a higher price and value than a small size vintage print.
