Framing Shop & Picture Gallery starts off business development with Epson upgrade.

High Quality Printer, Photographer & Picture Framer, Robbies Photographics, worked with Tetenal and Epson to help the next stage of their business development.


Robbies Photographics was the dream business for Ron McRobbie, who, after a career in the food industry, decided to follow his longterm passion of photography and established his store in 2005.

The business, based in Balham, South London, off ers a broad variety of photo services, ranging from simple printing services, to passport and ID prints as well as lots of portraiture,product and location photography.

In order to continuously fulfill the changing demands of his customers, Managing Director Ron decided the time was right to upgrade his printing equipment and move the business to larger premises:

“I’m constantly looking into developing the business and moving it forward. With the new year, I decided it was time for us to bring our photo printing equipment up to date with the latest technology before moving our business to new premises".


The business previously occupied two shops next to each other but the opportunity to move into a larger single unit prompted Ron to get in touch with Tetenal to discuss his options for new printing equipment.

"It seemed the perfect time to get in touch with Tetenal to discuss the latest Epson professional printing range.”


Tetenal Hardware Manager Chris Castle invited Ron to Epson's HQ in Hemel Hempstead for a full demonstration on the latest Epson equipment to try and create the perfect mix of products to fulfi ll his requirements for the expansion of the business.

"After the demonstration we decided to exchange our Agfa DLab for the Epson D3000 and the existing Canon IPF8100 for an Epson P9000 44" Large Format Printer.

For us the outstanding print quality of the Epson range was the convincing factor that led to our decision of upgrading both printers with the Epson counterparts as our business is built on the quality of service we provide.

Allied to the ease of use, cost savings, increased range of print sizes we can offer and on-going support with the 3 year warranty, it was really an easy decision in the end.”


Following the hardware upgrade Ron is now focusing on the move for Robbies Photographics to the new premises within the next two months to complete his business development.
