Published Tuesday, 29 April, 2014

Richard Photo Lab, a high-end image processing and print media company, has invested in a MGI Meteor DP8700 XL digital press to expand their production capabilities and offer cost-effective yet versatile options to their clients.

Richard Photo Lab, located in Hollywood, CA, is a quality-obsessed photo lab that services professional photographers from around the world. Specializing in high-end wedding, fine art, and commercial photography, Richard Photo Lab takes no shortcuts, setting standards as an industry leader. For over 40 years Richard Photo Lab has taken pride in exceeding the highest of client expectations. This lab sweats the details of each and every frame from image processing and scanning to print production and packing & handling.

Wanting to lower costs while maintaining their standard of premium print quality without sacrificing color, Richard Photo Lab began shopping for a digital press to meet their needs and budget. With the assistance of Print & Finishing Solutions, a MGI certified Elite Dealer, Richard Photo Lab decided to invest in a MGI Meteor DP8700 XL.

“Originally we were set on a competitor’s digital press. We took our prints to Print & Finishing Solutions and compared them to the Meteor. We were beyond impressed with the quality, price and size of the machine. The competitor’s machine was much more expensive and bulky,” said Bill Pyne, General Manager of Richard Photo Lab. “The Meteor was the right size, right price, and achieved the high quality we were looking for.”

“The Meteor took our reach to the next level,” continued Pyne. “It is user friendly and more controllable. We are considering getting a second one to continue to expand our current capabilities, and look forward to what we can accomplish with the Meteor.”
