About Zno | Your Photo Printing Professional

Zno started in 2012 with a few friends living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission was to create a next generation professional photo lab. We wanted a lab that combined professional photo printing with photography software in one end-to-end system.

Why should professional photographers
choose Zno as their photographic lab?

The truth is old photographic labs have old problems. No one wants to fix them. Old labs may print well - but everything else is obsolete: products, workflow, pricing. Zno seeks to solve these three problems.

Zno’s Products Go Beyond Your Average Professional Photographic Printing Lab

Many old photo labs have an obsolete product selection. As an example, even most “high-end” labs don’t offer fully assembled Matted Prints, instead they offer cheap “slip in” mats. Similarly, most labs don’t offer all-in-one matching Album Sets or Print Sets. Not to mention we’re one of only a handful of labs to offer a wide range of embellishments, linings and edge options for professional photo albums.

Zno’s Workflow Is Pain Free

The workflow of old photo labs is obsolete. Today's professional photographer needs half a dozen digital tools from start to finish. These include blogging, websites, CRMs, slideshows, online photo galleries, album proofing, IPS, online stores, retouching and more. Yet old photo labs still only focus on printing. They neglect the larger digital workflow. No lab or software company has ever created a total end-to-end digital workflow. Our mission includes developing products such as Zno Designer™, Zno Proofer™, Zno Gallery™, Zno Estore™, Zno Slideshow™, Zno Retoucher™ and many other future developments as well.

Zno’s Photo Lab Is Priced Insanely Low For Maximum Margins

The pricing of old photo labs is obsolete. That's a dirty secret of the old lab world. Prices should have come down a very long time ago. But in many places there are domestic monopolies. We've challenged the obsolete price model. We're a global company operating across 40 countries. We will always fight for the fairest possible price. On average, our comprable products are 20% ~ 40% less than competitors.
