Slide and Negative Scanning

35mm and Medium format negatives and 35mm slides scanned to high resolution jpeg file with Colour correction and dust/scratch removal.


Photo Restoration

Photographs are scanned into a computer, digitally retouched and then printed. Many of the photographs that make up your family history have become damaged and worn over the years. Recent developments in digital technology allow us to offer a restoration service to bring these old treasures back to their original glory.

Restoration services we offer include:


Memory Card download

All common formats of camera and video memory sticks and cards can be downloaded and burnt to cd, dvd, thumb drive or portable hard drive. Due to the increasing size of memory cards, pricing depends on amount of data on the cards. We charge a basic fee plus a charge for the media.


Quality Prints

By BICA Photographic in a professional photographic and digital laboratory here in Canberra. Colour correction, optimization and custom image formatting services available.


Print Mounting and laminating

An alternative option to framing a print is print mounting. We can mount your print to either 10mm gatorboard or 5mm foamcore.

Print mounting to 10mm Gatorboard: Gatorboard is a light but durable board consisting of a foam-core sandwiched between very thin craftwood sheets. Print mounting to gatorboard is recommended over print mounting to foam core.

Print mounting to 5mm Foamcore: Foamcore is very light but is also quite flexible, so large size sheets can bow over time. This is why we recommend print mounting to gatorboard.
(allow 8 working days)


Canvas prints

Prints of all sizes to 58x300 cm can be produced in house on canvas paper using our Epson printer.
Set files to 180 ppi – RGB (not CMYK)


Passport Photos

Passport and Visa photos require strict adherence to parameters dictated by the requesting authority, many countries have differing requirement regarding image size and positioning of subject and can be quite strict in enforcing the standards. At CanLab we ensure you get your passport/visa photos right the first time.

We are currently exclusively recommended by several embassies for our visa photos service.
