In order to guarantee a high level of quality regarding the printing, framing and delivery of our photo collage, we have tested several photo labs before launching our activity. After some bad experiences with several photo labs, we finally found our ideal partner: WhiteWall.
WhiteWall is a brand of Avenso GmbH and is based in Germany.
Founded in 2007, its workforce is 180 employees with stores located worldwide.
WHITEWALL IS TRUSTED BY A NUMBER OF PROFESSIONALS GREATER THAN ANY OTHER LABORATORY
All our jumbles are processed in the WhiteWall laboratory, the renowned specialist laboratory in which 380 galleries and more than 21,500 professional photographers enlarge, frame and reverse their photographs. WhiteWall has been producing for years all the works of the famous LUMAS publishing gallery. LUMAS represents 160 demanding artists who do not want to compromise on quality. In recent months, WhiteWall has been voted 70 times favorites in major trade magazines: “Impressions of such a quality that it hurts the eyes,” wrote the FAZ about them. And it is precisely the same expert hands and machines that will produce your picture.
WHITEWALL WANTS ABSOLUTE BRILLIANCE: REAL PHOTO PRINTS THAT STILL SHINE EVEN AFTER 25 YEARS
When you order from WhiteWall a photo as a poster or under acrylic glass, you always get a real photo print and not poor prints. Even in sizes of 120 x 180 cm. At home, a laser first exposes your file on real photo paper, which is then developed in a traditional way using a photochemical process. In addition to a high color stability for 25 years, the result provides a brilliance and appearance as only a real photograph can restore them: no frame issues, no pixelation, no surprises. WhiteWall manufactures their prints on canvas with premium pigment inks and their prints on aluminum with a 6-color UV system.
WHITEWALL TRUST SILICONE: PRESENTATION UNDER ACRYLIC GLASS WITHOUT BUBBLES OR CRACKS
The word “silicone” makes us think for years of seals with the ever improving quality, the laminates: With silicone, WhiteWall associates a photo print with acrylic glass in a flexible and durable way. This is essential because, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity, photography, acrylic glass and the back panel do not undergo the same dilation process at all. Under these conditions, however, inexpensive adhesive films already show bubbles and cracks after a short period of time. WhiteWall silicone seals help prevent these annoyances even after several years.
WHITEWALL ONLY MANUFACTURES WITH MAJOR BRANDS: CONSTANT QUALITY AND FAST AVAILABILITY
Whether it is photo papers, aluminum, acrylic glass or solid wood for their frames, WhiteWall buys all materials in large volumes directly from branded manufacturers. In order to be able to guarantee consistently high quality, only branded manufacturers in Germany are part of their supplier pool.
WHITEWALL APPRECIATES MEN … AND MACHINES: HIGH TECHNOLOGY AND MANUAL WORK
Yes, WhiteWall still manufactures all their solid wood frames in-house. Whether it’s silicone framing or sealing – it’s their photo enthusiasts employees who work at all levels, who still take “manufacturing quality” seriously and make it live every day again. WhiteWall also works with the most modern techniques: laser enlarger for paper strips 1.8 meters wide, large development unit, CNC milling cutters, for cutting or polishing works on aluminum or acrylic glass. Only this synthesis of high technology with craftsmanship allows them to obtain ever more excellent qualities at attractive rates.
WHITEWALL TAKES CONTROLS VERY SERIOUSLY: QUALITY ASSURANCE IN EVERY STEPS OF WORK
Regarding quality assurance, WhiteWall is uncompromising on controls. Quality control is performed at the end of each work step. When everything is correct, the barcode of your order is scanned again, each step is thus systematically documented. So, WhiteWall always knows who manufactured or controlled which product. Any errors are handled immediately by the service manager. The quality is good but with their quality controls, you are sure to get the best for your printing and framing.
WHITEWALL PUT YOUR WORK INTO GOOD HANDS: EVEN FOR SHIPPING
Before leaving the laboratory, your photo collage is first placed in a protective envelope, then in a plastic safety packaging. Via UPS, DHL or TNT, your collage arrives directly from their laboratory at home. Without intermediaries, this optimizes delivery times.
