My experience with Lucent Imaging was outstanding. James and Korske are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I was very impressed with the quality of their work and will definitely be back.

Michael Briguglio, Canberra

Very accommodating, fast service and great retouching. Besides the price a little high (although needing decent amount of fixing) I’m very happy. Will use them again.

Tash Robinson

Awesome experience, outstanding quality with my prints, The advice Korske gave really made the difference. Without Lucent Imaging, I would have ended up with mediocre prints. Definitely a repeat customer.

Michael Tiyce

Can’t recommend Lucent highly enough. Printing and paper quality is beautiful and the service is second to none. Korske really went above and beyond to help me create the finished product I wanted. Highly recommended.

Print Permanence

At Lucent Imaging we use the latest Canon LUCIA PRO pigment inks which are water, scratch and fade resistant.

We pair our pigment inks with archival quality Hahnemühle and Ilford papers to ensure that your fine art prints last as long as possible and based on our research, we believe that the images we print will last a long time, on display, out of direct sunlight and framed under UV glass.

In reality, print permanence is a difficult topic of discussion as it’s impacted significantly by variable environmental factors including lighting, humidity and temperature fluctuation. Preliminary studies into the longevity of our Canon LUCIA PRO pigment inks have shown a very conservative ~60 years fade resistance in a regular environment and >200 years fade resistance in album storage.

Introducing: Prints Charming

Backed by Canon’s 12 colour imagePROGRAF PRO series of printers, we’re bringing your images to life with archive quality LUCIA PRO pigment-based inks and industry-leading fine art papers.

Whether you’re printing images for yourself, a client or a Disney princess, we always give your fine art prints the royal treatment.
