Gamma’s Lambda produces unprecedented digital prints. It prints directly on photographic paper or display material from digital files. The Lambda System achieves true continuous-tone photographic quality without the visual dot patterns seen in non-photographic printing technology. Using a unique laser source, digital prints are razor sharp from corner to corner. No other technology incorporates the color fidelity, sharpness, and faithful rendition of your digital files.

Lambda Setup

Ideally, the document should be set up at 100% of the final output size. If this is not possible (document size may be limited by the software being used), the document needs to be proportional to the final size. Example: final size is to be 24″x30″, document size is 8″x10″ (scaling of 300% will result in correct final size).

All fonts used in your file(s) should be included on your disk. This includes fonts placed in .eps files, too! Programs that use postscript fonts (Adobe) require both a screen and printer version of the font. Alternately, fonts can be converted to outlines.

Imported raster images should be placed as RGB .eps files, although .tif format can also be used (depending on software — call for additional information). See below for resolution guideline.

Vector-based software interprets elements (text, lines, boxes, etc.) as mathematically defined objects which can be scaled independently of resolution. Most of these packages are for “drawing” or page layout. Vector software may also contain raster images (see below).

Vector-based programs supported:

  • Illustrator (Preferred)
  • QuarkXpress
  • Freehand
  • InDesign

The document should be set up at 100% of the desired output size at 200 dpi.

Files need to be RGB .tif format, with no compression used and no additional layers, channels, or paths. If files are CMYK, we prefer to do the conversion ourselves.

Raster-based software interprets the page as a collection of squares (pixels). Individual or groups of pixels can be manipulated, but the entire image is considered “one.” Raster software is resolution dependent, meaning the resolution of the output device determines how the file should be set up.

Raster-based programs supported:

  • Photoshop
