Artwork digitization

Our goal is to offer true representations of all forms of fine artwork from oil based to watercolor paintings.

True colors

True color representation starts with calibrated scanners, and monitors. We use custom printer/paper profiles to accurately reproduce colors, shadow detail and smooth tonal transitions. Even our room lighting has a high color rendering index for true color artwork views.

Once digitized, we color match to the original artwork via soft and hard proofing with color managed equipment. Hard proofs will be presented for each piece of artwork. More on our digitization process below.

 


  Giclee Printing

"Giclée" from the french word "gicler" meaning "to spray." Giclée prints are finest form of artwork replication. We only use Epson UltraChrome HD and Pro10 inks in our Epson SureColor Giclée printers.
