Come and discuss all things Dry Lab at Focus On Imaging

Hello everybody

We’re sounding slightly like a broken record at the moment, but we’re almost ready to unveil our Focus On Imaging plans for 2013. What we can reveal though is our plans for our Imaging and Printing Division…

pete_hollandPete Holland – who heads up our Imaging and Printing Division – will be present on stands C11 (that’s our stand!) and stand E10 (Epson) throughout the show. He looks after all things Epson and Noritsu Printers at Color Confidence, particularity focusing on professional Dry Lab solutions which allow you to produce supreme quality prints on a variety of paper sizes and media, perfect for professional or business printing.

Two Dry Lab solutions worth seeing him for:

Epson SureLab SL-D3000


The SureLab range sets the benchmark for Dry Lab accuracy and quality, ideally suited to high-end photography print reproduction. The Epson D3000 offers a print quality and colour consistency comparable to that of Epson’s professional graphics printers. This means output will appear consistent to customers, giving companies the flexibility to work with a wider range of sizes and print run lengths by using the SL-D3000 in conjunction with another Epson printer.

Noritsu QSS Green


QSS Green is the latest in a long line of innovative Dry minilab systems from Noritsu. Powerful, versatile and compact, the QSS Green is built to handle a wide variety of printing requirements. The QSS Green also raises the bar in terms of environmental friendliness and print variety and has the potential to become the new de-facto standard model for photo businesses.

Noritsu and Neolt – who are they??

Color Confidence have recently announced that they have taken on distribution of two new brands, Noritsu and Neolt.

If you’re thinking that these might be two new pieces of software or a colour management devices that you might be interested in but haven’t heard of yet, then you’re a bit off the mark!

First lets start with Noritsu.

Noritsu are a Japanese manufacturer of the worlds best mini labs. In basic terms, Noritsu are the people behind the printing of your photos!

If you go into high street labs, and pro-labs across the country then there is a good chance your photos, or photo books are being printed on a Noritsu machine.

Noritsu are renowned for producing the highest quality mini labs – both wet and dry.

Color Confidence is now the distributor for these machines and consumables, meaning we are building closer ties with labs to help them get a more colour accurate workflow. This should mean that the images you get back from your local lab will be better quality.

So if your not happy with the colour of your prints – tell your local lab to choose a Noritsu, or choose a lab who uses Noritsu.

And what about Neolt?

Ever wondered how signmakers produce banners that cover huge billboards, and how shops produce Point of Sale banners of eye-popping quality?

The world of wide-format printing is an astonishing place – we attended Sign and Digital UK this year, and there are printing machines that make the downstairs of my house look very small!

Neolt are an Italian manufacturer of wide-format printers, who, bucking the trend, manufacture their equipment in Italy (rather than the far east), and additionally use all European components.

This approach delivers the highest quality printers, and allows users to print outstanding quality wide-format output on a whole range of different media, be it standard ink on paper, or even Perspex.

Neolt is a new brand in the UK, despite being manufactured In Italy since 1941.

Once again, Color Confidence as distributor are looking to show the UK market the quality of these machines, and then bring our own added value of outstanding colour reproduction, to ensure that Neolt users are renowned for producing the most accurate and impressive images in the market.
