Learn more about Semi-Gloss, Smooth Matte and Linen
Semi-Gloss: Our semi-gloss provides the silkiest effect possible. It maintains a slight gloss finish and is particularly brilliant for business cards and promotional materials.
Smooth Matte: This elegant uncoated stock is very popular for press printing, and has become industry standard for exceptional printing quality. It is bright white, providing an especially crisp surface for all projects. It is made Carbon Neutral Plus, ensuring a reduction in carbon emissions plus a commitment to conserve the environment. FSC certified.
Linen: Linen stock has a reputation as a well-loved business and invitation substrate. Our linen has a subtly embossed surface that provides for a distinctly sophisticated presentation. Made with 100% green electricity and FSC certified.

We’re so excited that 3/16” Foam Core, .080 Styrene and 1/4” Coda Foam are now available on ROES! These mounts are available in the options tab in the no-correction and lab-corrected prints catalogs. Enjoy any one of these mounts for print sizes 3.5x5 up to 30x40. Learn more about each of these mounts and how they can really make an image stand out:
3/16” Foam Core is thick and lightweight, suitable for mounting small and large prints. This is a great, inexpensive way to upgrade your prints.
.080 Styrene is a white plastic mount just under 3/32” thick. It is not affected by variations in moisture and is less prone to edge and corner damage.
1/4” Coda Foam is a foam centered board that is coated on both sides with a tough white plastic shell. It is stiffer than standard foam core and changes in humidity will not cause to warp.
Turnaround time is just 3 days. These three products will be first of many mounting options to launch on our ROES site so stay tuned for more products like these soon!

We’re so excited over here testing with our new press printer, binding machine and shrink wrapper! Here are a few shots we took of one of the latest books we printed for Virgil Bunao. Look out soon for official product launches and information!
Richard feels so legit with a real shrink wrapper! Check Bill out learning the ins and outs of the machine.
What a whirlwind. We plan for WPPI each year beginning in November and while we always say it comes too soon, it also goes by much too fast. We forget how great WPPI is for reconnecting friends and acquaintances, and meeting and getting to know new friends. This year was no different. Our booth was filled with great conversations, amazing interviews (jose villa came by twice there were so many questions!) and great introductions to some awesome photographers. Thanks for all the love, we hoped you had a good time. A special thank you to our photographers who we interviewed at the booth: Jen Huang, Caroline Tran, Eric Kelley, Braedon Flynn, Tec Petaja and Jose Villa! You guys are awesome.
If you missed it, make sure to make time next year!
Another special shout out to Fuji who provided Instax cameras and film throughout the show for us to play with! (and that we did).
We’re so excited about our newest purchase.. a digital press.
Like all things Richard, we searched high and low for a great digital press printer. We spent months researching the perfect press that meets our high standard of quality. We finally found one from France that really fit the bill. Along the way we also found a book binder from Italy too that goes perfectly with our vision. The combination of these very special machines will enable us to live up to our commitment to making unique and high quality products. We are dedicated to this and Richard wouldn’t have it any other way.
Besides being able to print on a vast amount of materials, this digital press also allows us to do the longest press print, all the way up to 13x40! It will be a fun process to figure out cool ways of using this unique feature!
Right now we are in the middle of beta testing to get our new line of high end digital press products perfect. Be on the lookout soon for the following products that we’ll be offering at the quality you know and trust from Richard Photo Lab!
• Press Books • Press Albums • Flat Cards • Folded Cards • Mini-portfolios • Business cards and other promotional material • And so much more!
Email us if you would like us to add your favorite product to our R&D list!

In an unexpected development, late on Friday, February 1st, 2013 Apple released an update to Java 6, listed as update 39 (which matches the latest Oracle Java 6 edition, also released yesterday), for OS X 10.6.8 Lion systems. The update is available here. Installing the new version should obviate the need for customers with 10.6.8 to upgrade to 10.8 at this time.
If you’re on a MAC and are having trouble launching your ROES software, we have your solution! First, we’d like to apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Recently Apple has updated the minimum OSX requirements for Richard Photo Lab ROES. Please go to the Apple App Store and get the latest version of Mountain Lion to continue ordering prints from Richard. Also make sure you have the version 7 of Java. Visit www.java.com for the latest update.
We’ve received an enormous amount of great feedback about our ROES software since its 2011 launch. One of the biggest things we heard was you guys love lustre paper, and wanted it in the proof print catalog. Well, Richard loves it too and we’re happy to announce that he’s made it happen. So, welcome lustre paper to the proof print family. Order today
