The Durst Lambda printer produces our highest quality graphic print. It is the most advanced digital printing system available. It prints continuous-tone true photographic material with the very best detail and color. When people say “near photographic,” this is what they are trying to replicate.
Because it’s digital, the Durst Lambda is capable of printing deeper blacks and brighter whites than traditional photo prints. For sharp, high resolution graphics—especially for images with skin tones or food—a Lambda print is the best quality print there is.
Lambda prints on 7mil roll stock, paper, flex, or trans, up to 50” wide at any length. Paper is the same material you get from a drugstore when you get your snapshots printed. Flex is the same photo emulsion but on a polyester base instead of paper. The significance is paper tears and can delaminate, polyester doesn’t. Paper would be good for short runs of posters that go up once and stay there. Flex is good for images that you put up, taken down, roll up and ship, over and over. Trans has a similar poly base, but it is translucent to pass light and the emulsion creates twice the dye densities so that when backlit, the image will have the saturation it needs.
Best Applications for Lambda Printing

Benchmark specializes in producing matched panel murals for Pop-up Backwalls for most major manufacturers of Pop-up display hardware including:
We have a convenient online pop-up display quoting and specifications system. We supply free design templates for your specific pop-up display make and model and all of our materials are the best available. Substrates include:
- Ilford Flex for Imaging – Europe’s highest color saturation plastic based photo media specifically formulated for direct digital printing
- 10mil HDL textured vinyl overlam – low glare, scratch and fingerprint resistant
- 10mil bright white backer with a light blocking center – for trouble free use in backlight situations
These substrates combine to yield a just right weight for smooth curves and easy handling.
Retractable Banner Stands
When you want your image to look its best.
Trade Show Display Graphics
For any Velcro® accepting surface, we use the same high quality imaging and face laminates as our pop-up panels, any height or width including long narrow headers. All are finished with a hook velcro perimeter to stay where you want them. Don’t forget, you can think in shapes now with digital die cutdetachables!.
There isn’t a better way to create full color backlit transparencies. The upper limit of inkjet ink densities can’t reach the saturation levels available in photographic backlight materials. This is especially important with today’s brighter boxes.
If your printing project includes sharp type and detail, the lambda can outperform any inkjet plotter on the market.
