We create high resolution, colour-accurate digital files of your art, capturing all the textures, richness and subtleties of the original.
We offer different levels of digital capture and reproduction services:
Simple high-res photo scan = $10 - $25
Bring in your photo prints (under 12x17”), and slides, sketches, line-art, for highly detailed and colour accurate scans. Price depends on final output size and adjustments required.
Single Shot Capture of original artwork with screen proof adjustment = $50
Your original (up to 22x33”) is captured with a in 50MP RAW format and PSD output file at 16-bit Adobe RGB colour. The image is screen-matched for very close print matching. It's the first step towards digitally recording your original artwork in case you decide to make prints at a later time.
Print proofs & adjustment = $50
You get the same result from our 50MP captured image, but after screen proofing, we run one printed proof, and make adjustments from that proof for a more accurate final file, plus one more proof to ensure accuracy, and final adjustments. Many artists are quite happy with the results from this level of proofing, and it's an affordable price point.
Further proof runs = $25
We work with you to create a file that is very close to exact in colour and clarity as your original. This often requires 3-4 or more adjustments and re-proofing prints to match the original as closely as possible. Specific colours and areas of the capture file are worked on in succeeding proofs until we are happy with the outcome.
Multi Shot Capture of original artwork = add $10 per extra shot
For larger originals, beyond 22x33”, we typically shoot two or more shots and stitch them together for a seamless, perfectly balanced image. For example, a 30x45" original that takes 3 shots to capture would cost an extra $20. We have the capability to digitally reproduce very large originals with amazing detail (see the 9-shot, 8'x5' capture of "World Map" by Laura Doell detailed at right, with full image below) using the stitching method. The finished images are often well over 200 megapixels in size (i.e. for a six-shot stitched image, 40x60” original).
OR WE'LL COME TO YOUR TOWN!
With our setup, we'll hit the road with our gear and capture your original works, proofing to our output-matched screen for a close-to-perfect print result. Print proofs can be sent later by mail if you wish to do this first before going ahead with your prints run.
Cost: As per the schedule above, plus $10 per original (ie: base of $60 for single shot capture). If you've got a number of originals or you can team up with other artists to arrange a capture session in your area, give us a call and we'll help arrange the trip. It's a great way to save time and expense.
