Scanning

Scanning is the best way to capture flat artwork in terms of resolution, detail and even lighting. What we add to this is the ultimate concern for color.

Flatbed scanning

We have a 2400 dpi, 11″ x 17″ flatbed scanner which is ideal for smaller works on paper or canvas. Larger works can be scanned as multi-part scans and then montaged together which provides a seamless image of the highest quality. Maximum artwork size 24″ x 36″.

 

We then spend time correcting the color of the scan to match it as closely as possible to the original artwork. Calibration can take you only so far the hard work of matching by eye is where skill and expertise take over.

Prices
