"The Path" by B Renee (Original size: 30"x40")
2x2 Sample
 

Many artists photograph their original artwork to make prints, setup websites or to submit art show applications. While these results are "ok", when a customer is in your booth looking at your original work on the wall and holding a print in their hands, nothing less than perfection will do. And that is why we provide Artwork Scanning rather than photographing art.

Above is "The Path" by B Renee. The original painting is 30x40 and in the 2x2 sample to the right you can see how the Art Scanner has captured the rich colors and depth of the oil, which will be reflected in the Giclée print.

Scan Don't Photo Artwork

Our process of Artwork Capture is based on scanning the artwork with an Epson Art Scanner, combined with x-rite color calibration, and fine tuning using proof prints until our capture is as close to the original as possible. The result is that the Art Scans accurately reflect your artwork with no loss of image quality regardless of the size of the original.

The images below are from a 2x2 section of a painting scanned and photographed. The results speak for themselves -
Better Color, Better Clarity and a Product you can be proud of.
