Original Art Reproduction

If you are a visual artist who creates original paintings, drawings, or other media, you can bring your original fine art to our studio and we will professionally photograph it, colour-manage the digital file, and optimize it for print.

We have extensive experience capturing a variety of original art. Our client list includes professional painters, artists, conservators, governments, museums, commercial/public galleries, and art foundations.

Some of the varieties of original art include:

  • oil and acrylic paint on canvas or board
  • watercolour painting and illustrations on paper
  • fabric arts and textiles
  • mutlimedia pieces (including 3D elements)
  • art with high gloss or highly reflective elements, such as varnishes, metallic paints, gold leaf, and glossy films
  • Super oversized art (larger than 6 foot)

We professionally photograph your original artwork using a Phase One 60MP or 100MP Medium Format Digital Camera in a critically controlled lighting studio setup.

Capture conditions are carefully controlled through the use of:

  • High quality lights
  • Multiple lights and multiple angles
  • Light modification
  • Lighting polarization and lens polarization
  • Lighting calibration

All reproductions include twenty minutes of image consult for colour and one test strip.

Digital post production includes:

  • Digital colour calibration
  • Colour matching to original artwork
  • Creative colour rendering based on output and artist intent
  • Digital stitching and exposure blending for super large scale reproduction

Flatbed Scans

We offer high-quality reflective flat art or print scans measuring up to 12 x 17″. We professionally scan your prints using a top-of-the-line Epson flatbed scanner combined with state of the art scanning software to ensure you get the best scan possible. This is a great service for scanning photo prints and small flat art pieces. Larger sizes available as custom projects.

Note: We do not offer negative or slide scanning at this time.

Restoration and Enlargements

We can take your old photo prints and restore and reproduce them larger for you. The process involves three stages:

1. We professionally scan images up to 12×17″ and prepare them for print. You can save by scanning multiple images at once. The full-resolution digital files from the scan are yours to keep after the process. (See Flatbed Scanning pricing below.)

2. If your photo requires further retouching, we can help you restore the image to its former glory. This may involve digital enhancing the image, removing scratches, water marks, restoring colour, or filling in torn areas of the print. The ability to restore the image depends on the original condition. Pricing for retouching services is $100/hr. (See Digital Services pricing below.)

3. We will print the full-resolution scanned and retouched image to almost any size (this depends on the original size of the image). We have a variety of papers to match to your original or enhance the new image depending on what you want to do with the enlargement. See our printing page for information on the prints and pricing.
