Genuine, professional black and white photo prints


No more colour casts and colour shifts, just genuine black and white photo prints online.


Metro Imaging benefit from over thirty five years experience in traditional black and white photo printing to call upon for the quality of our resin coated papers. Having helped to develop an innovative paper processor for our Lambda digital printer, we are able to use genuine ILFORD black and white silver gelatin photographic paper.

This is as close as you can get to a traditional black and white darkroom photo print from a digital file and we are one of only a handful of companies in the world to offer it. All our genuine black and white Lambda photo prints are produced on archival ILFORD black and white silver gelatin photographic paper. With ‘resin coated’ photo papers, the paper is essentially encapsulated in a plastic envelope and the emulsion stuck on the outside of the resin. Being true silver gelatin emulsion, the photo prints have a consistent and neutral image tone (in other words – no colour cast) and the paper offers fine tonal benefits including strong blacks and subtle highlight detail. We also now offer fibre based photo prints through Metroprint.
