Art reproduction is our specialty. The endgame is a print-ready file with remarkable fidelity to the original artwork. More than retouching, the process is a finely tuned skill acquired by extensive experience with specialist equipment. It’s practised with eyes acutely trained on detail, and a whole lot of patience.
Our 25×18 inch flatbed scanner is extraordinary. Seriously, the bees knees. Quite a rare piece of equipment around town, it’s specially designed for museums and archives, and has some brilliant capabilities.
We’re really proud to have it in our arsenal. We can scan flat (with diffused lighting) or in 3D, capturing visible surface texture. This enables us to reproduce otherwise tricky media, including canvases and works with variable textures and reflective qualities.
Full service art reproduction
To get started, you can either request an appointment (link below) to bring in your artwork – we like to kick things off by having a chat to you about your practice and what you’re wanting to achieve from the art reproduction process.
Alternatively, you can mail your artwork to us.
Maximum sizes for mounted works
If your artwork is on stretched canvas or is created on/mounted to a rigid material, the maximum size we can scan is 25 x 18.5″ (635 x 470 mm). Mounted artworks in excess of these dimensions should be professionally photographed – we’re happy to share our photographer recommendations with you on request.
Full service art reproductions usually take between 5 and 14 business days. Ultimately, the complexity and volume of your job is the determining factor, but we’ll be able to give you an ETA once we receive your appointment request (link above).
