OVP Printing…

is a family run business and has been involved in the photographic industry since 1985, and is probably the oldest professional photographic laboratory in Bedfordshire. We have seen some of the most dramatic developments in this field.

These are both exciting and challenging times for the photographic industry especially with digital and the demands by customers for more refreshing styles of work, quick turn around but above all quality.

Pro Lab printing services, we produce prints from passport size to 20x32inches we can produce real silver halide, C-type, photographic prints, the traditional way, be it from already processed negatives, slides or any digital media, we can also transfer colour, black and white film, 35mm to medium format onto DVD or CD. Our photographic printer processors can print from all forms of digital media cards, negatives, slides, also CD and DVD. For large format printing or canvas prints we use an Epson Pro9800 where we can produce photographic quality prints from 44inches wide any length. It also produces the ultimate black and white and colour prints on a wide range of materials and using original chromogenic inks produces photographic quality and longevity.

Professional photographers we have our own FTP server to upload images online and have your orders delivered to your door or collect for free if your local. Some photographers, from the keen enthusiast to the pro, prefer to use other means so we also accept files from various other sources such as Dropbox, WeTransfer, YouSendIt, Hightail etc. As our customer base is varied, from the keen enthusiast to the professional photographer, we also offer a colour correction service, or you can ask for our colour calibration chart and colour manage your own files.
