Photolab made its first steps in the market in 1979, the period of absolute analog photography. Dark rooms, enlargers, and chemicals were the main structure of every photographic lab those days. Since then, our lab invested in technological equipment, know-how and the right partners. In the end of the 80’s Photolab was already one of the most conscientious, efficient and quality Greek photography labs.
In the middle of 90’s, the digital period made its first shyly steps. We sensed very quickly the radical changes that were about to come, so we decided to include to our existing equipment digital technology and services. The evolution that followed was really radical. During the last 15 years our structure, our equipment and our services changed completely. The analog period became history… and masses of digital machines, computers, printers, cutting systems and services are now in our lives. A daily routine that some years ago supposed to be science fiction.
In 1992 we made the difference and we brought in the Greek market one of the first plotters. In the middle of 90’s we set one of the best film recorders, Kodak LVT, and in 1999 the first Durst Lambda 130, the best worldwide printer concerning photo materials. In 2008 we were the first to apply the UV print technique upon plexiglass. In 2013 Photolab became the first Greek Official Chromaluxe Lab and one of the five only in Europe, which supports the unique Metal Print method.
In addition, in 2014 our lab became the first photography print lab which owns a router cutter, and at the same time we entered dynamically in the digital offset printing field.
