CC IMAGING AND HAHNEMUHLE CASE STUDY
Tetenal help convert pro lab CC Imaging to Hahnemühle Certified Studio
When it comes to printing excellence Hahnemühle and Tetenal hold a combined experience of over 600 years. Paper manufacturer Hahnemühle are in business since 1584 while the Tetenal history goes back to 1847.
To pass this experience on to professional labs and maintain a high printing standard within the industry, Hahnemühle created their Certified Studio programme. Its aim is to support professional print providers to achieve and maintain excellence in art reproduction, digital art and photographs. Artists and photographers actively seek out a Certified Studio because they can rely on the business to provide consistent quality in all production steps from trained employees.
The Certified Studio programme is a prestigious mark for a company to attain, so as you can imagine the criteria for acceptance are extremely high. As an official distributor for not only Hahnemühle but also inkjet printing leader Epson, Tetenal are perfectly placed to advise on whether you are a suitable candidate for certification, just like we have done for CC Imaging.

Our Tetenal contact, Sales Manager, Chris Allsopp asked why we hadn’t put our name forward to become a Hahnemühle Certified Studio. We noticed that although we already offer prints on Hahnemühle paper, accreditation would fill a gap in our existing service range.
Tetenal encouraged us to apply and a meeting with Hahnemühle was arranged where we were informed that not just anyone could become accredited and CC Imaging Photolab would have to go through a rigorous and extensive programme of visits and checks over a period of several months to ensure our current services and practices met compliance. Fortunately, with our colour-controlled lighting booths, Epson SC-P20000 printer purchased from Tetenal, colour calibration systems and extensive knowledge base along with support from Tetenal we passed with flying colours.”
