Fine art reproduction and high resolution scanning
Art reproduction is our speciality. We’re very particular in relation to how we colour balance and prepare files. In other words, we take our time with the process to ensure everything is right and as true to the original as is humanly possible.
We use a scanner specially designed for museums and archives. It is a flatbed scanner that can scan up 25 x 18″ in a single pass. While it has an 18 x 25″ sized flatbed, we also digitise larger artworks (depending on size and medium). These are scanned in sections and digitally stitched together.
Our scanner is a pretty amazing machine – it’s unique lighting setup means we can scan ‘flat’ (with diffused illumination) or in 3D, capturing visible surface texture. As a result, we can scan mediums that are often tricky to scan with conventional scanners, including works on canvas, artworks with varying textures and artworks with reflective qualities. We’re proud of the detail our equipment and expertise allows us to capture, and we’re really excited to show you just what it can do for your artwork!
In some cases, photography may be a better option for art reproduction. We work with a wonderful local photographer and if we think you’ll get a better result through photography, we’ll on pass our pal’s details.
We offer two services: basic scanning and a full fine art reproduction service. We don’t offer an on-the-spot scanning service, sorry!
