Here at OVI, we believe photo image quality is everything. We have spent the last 40 years updating and refining our processes, from unique colour grading, density and contrast controls to only printing on the very best Fuji gallery grade photo and Hahnemüle Fine Art Giclée papers.
We are utterly fastidious about our photo print quality, to the point of near-OCD levels, but you should expect nothing less from an award-winning professional photo laboratory that consistently delivers the very best photographic prints from your images.

We believe that ‘traditional’ silver halide paper cannot be beaten for pure image quality. We use Fuji’s Crystal Archive DP II Professional papers for their incredible image quality, wide colour gamut and high maximum density for deep blacks. Image sharpness is exceptional, whites are pure and colours truly vibrant. Being archival grade, image stability is also excellent; Fuji’s own figures stating - under the right conditions - 20-years + with no change to the image!
Metalised prints - printed on Fuji Pro photo paper - give a sharp, distinctive edge to portrait, wedding and commercial images, they appear to shine from the inside as if backlit like a Duratran.
With its glossy finish and metallic appearance, it represents another dimension for creating images with exceptional interest and depth. Metalised paper adds stunning visual impact and a contemporary flair to your photography. This exclusive paper delivers enhanced colours for rich, bright colour saturation and intense blacks.
The Fuji paper is processed in the same way as for conventional images, through RA-4 chemistry, thus maintaining the archival quality – they are no gimmick. Highly saturated colour shots, black & white and sepia images are particularly effective.
