We’ve broadened our professional Lambda C-ype Printing service to include the newly released Fujicolor Crystal Archive Velvet paper; a silver halide colour paper designed exclusively by Fujifilm to produce the same high-quality colour prints as the more traditional gloss, matte and lustre paper finishes that have been traditionally associated with the C-type process, but with a unique true-matte finish comparable to Giclée Fine Art prints.

As an alternative to matte and gloss finishes, Fujicolor Velvet C-type paper offers photographers and artists a smooth tactile surface with absolutely no reflections and a unique characteristic of Velvet paper is its ability to diffuse light, even under harsh or extreme lighting conditions.

In the same way as any of our Professional C-type prints, prints on Velvet papers can be mounted, sealed, or framed with ease and offer extra durability due to the ultra-smooth and fingerprint-resistant surface of the paper.

This new Velvet paper shares the same characteristics as alternative papers in the Fujicolor Crystal Archive range – including true continuous tone, long term image stability, accurate colour reproduction, and through our Durst Lambda we are able to produce ultra sharp photographic digital C-type images with crisp edge to edge printing and absolutely no distortion. Prints are available in full colour or black and white, up to 1219 mm (48 inches) in width and up to the length of an entire roll – which is a massive 1,968 inches.
