    Following the launch of our 'in house' Monochrome processing and printing services I am delighted to announce that due to its success we are expanding the range of services we offer and making it easier to use :

    We have a new website www.ilfordlabdirect.com

    This enables customers in the UK / Ireland and Europe to access our lab services and receive superb quality monochrome images on real silver gelatin monochrome paper.

    By mid year we will have also expanded our service by introducing LIGHTJET imaged prints onto monochrome paper:

    Keep up with progress on the website, also a big thank you to any APUGGERS who have used the site and helped to make it such a success.

    Looks good, few details however. What paper(s) are you using? Print size range? Is there a selenium toning option? Pricing?

    Is this service restricted to European customers? Is Harmon / Ilford going to have a similar NA effort?

    Hi Bruce,

    We use ILFORD RC Digital paper, silver gelatin for laser exposure :

    Largest size at present is 15" x 10 " ( via our converted FUJI Frontiers ) much bigger when the Lighjet starts production :

    We do not offer a selenium service.

    Our pricing is 'high street' not 'specialist lab' : We have plans to work with partners to place FUJI Frontiers for true monochrome printing around the World with like minded photo finishers and labs, the ILFORD service is not available outside of UK and Europe, due to postage costs and restrictions we will see the practicalities regarding the much bigger print service later in teh year.
