Lab Printing - Boutique Photographic and Fine Art Images
If you love our albums, why not trust your most important images to our master printer and experienced lab artisans? Finao's world-class lab services are our best-kept secret. We don't mass produce, allowing our expert printers to take extra care with your images, including color correction, if preferred. Experience our amazing portraits and fine art work or offer your clients the best tiny prints available to include with thank you notes and announcements.
We offer premium photographic and fine art printing on papers from the world's leading producers including Fuji, Kodak, Hahnemühle and MOAB. Our skill combines with premium archival inks and state of the art equipment from Noritsu, Polielettronica, Kodak, Canon, and Epson.
We value consistency in our printing. Generally speaking, all you will need for good results across orders are a quality monitor and a good calibration device (e.g., Spyder, X-Rite, or similar brand). We recommend requesting test prints prior to your first album order so that you have a baseline for our product.
Print-only orders are restricted to USA SHIPMENTS ONLY unless combined with other products, and will ship via 1-2 day service with a $10 flat rate.
If your order contains other products we base the shipping rate on the non-lab items in the order.
International print orders are available only when combined with other products and do not qualify for expedited flat-rate shipping.
Orders containing both prints and other products will be delivered in a single shipment once all items are finished. Rates offered in this case are based on the non-lab items in the order.
NOTE: If photographic prints of any type must be absolutely identical, please purchase in the same order. C-process printing is chemical based, so although we calibrate our printers carefully results may vary slightly depending on time of day or week in which the prints are made. Differences are typically not noticable except if prints will be displayed side by side

Hahnemühle German Etching
Hahnemühle German Etching (310 gsm, 100% alpha-cellulose, white). This heavyweight etching paper has a fine, smooth surface texture characterized by a velvety tactile feel and clearly defined felt structure. It has an attractive warm white shade and is our most popular fine art paper for all applications and products.
MOAB Entrada Rag Natural
MOAB Entrada Rag Natural 300 (300 gsm, 100% cotton, no optical brighteners). Choose Moab Entrada Rag for prints with vivid colors and high sharpness on a truly matte surface with traditional fine-art paper feel.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Metallic
Hahnemühle Photo Rag Metallic (340 gsm, 100% cotton, no optical brighteners). One of the most beautiful fine-art papers we have seen, it blends the characteristic surface structure and sumptuous feel of a 100% cotton rag baryta paper with the dynamic appearance of a metallic media. Light reflection from the silvery metallic finish is enhanced by the tooth of the paper texture, adding an almost three-dimensional appearance.
