About Us

The Printlab was founded in 1987 with just two enlargers and a simple sink, but has since grown into one of the most respected printing studios in Chicago. As a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern digital technology, we serve the needs of artists, photographers, and hobbyists around the world. Let our expertise help you take your work from good to outstanding.

Since its beginnings, Printlab has always been driven by a passion for innovation and learning. This has allowed us to push the boundaries of printing and find new ways to demonstrate our craftsmanship in our final products.
