Our Lab

Opening our first location in 1966, ABC Photo has since grown into one of the largest professional colour labs in Western Canada, actively involved in the photographic industry with memberships in many of the professional photographer and lab associations. ABC Photo is proud to support our photographers producing many of their award winning work.


Our roots began as a professional lab providing services to professional portrait and wedding photographers. As time went on we gradually expanded our services as well as clientele by offering services for the high-end amateur in 1975, commercial imaging in 1986, digital services in 1992 and in 2003 becoming the first Kodak ProShots Lab in western Canada. ABC Photo has always been the industry leader in technology and we strive to deliver a quality product as well as an uncompromising level of service and support. We will continue our active role in the photographic industry as we push forward into the digital evolution never forgetting our traditional roots as “Quality is our most important product“.
