    Professional C-Type, Silver Halide, Metallic Print

    Silver halide is a chemical compound and has been used in photographic film and paper for hundreds of years. In fact, when it comes to producing high-quality photo prints, silver halide printing is the chef’s kiss of printing methods.

    Also referred to as chromogenic prints, C-types, C-prints or C-type prints, silver halide prints are actually created by a chemical reaction. And while you won’t find us teaching science lessons any time soon, we do know a thing or two about this kind of chemistry…

    Silver halide paper contains light-sensitive silver halide crystals and dye couplers suspended in layers of gelatin. When this paper (and the concoction inside it) is exposed to light, it triggers a chemical reaction, which then develops to form a full-colour image — all without a drop of ink in sight.

    In a nutshell, silver halide prints are exposed using light instead of ink, digital files instead of film negatives and a printer instead of a darkroom.

    Silver halide prints

    Rather than laying down individual dots of colour — a printing method known as halftone — the silver halide printing process produces a smooth, continuous tone known as contone. Silver halide prints are also great for recreating natural skin tones, shadows and highlights, and deep blacks and brilliant whites. These photorealistic elements make silver halide prints a popular choice for photographers — particularly portrait photographers.

    Another benefit of the silver halide printing process is the longevity of the prints that it produces. Since the dye is embedded within the paper itself instead of deposited on top of it, the print is less likely to smudge and is scratch and water resistant. Even more impressive is that silver halide prints can typically withstand deterioration caused by light exposure for approximately 60 years, giving them an archival quality.
