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 K3 inks in our Epson Giclée printers.

Artwork digitization and printing details

Maximum size of ~38 x 50" can be digitized. Artwork scanned at 300ppi resolution by default. Higher resolution available on request. Canvas does not need to be removed from wooden frame.

Digitization pricing includes soft proofing only.

Artwork with extremely thick or shiny surfaces my not be compatible with our digitization process.

  • Initial artwork scans are cropped and checked for quality control. Soft proofing within Adobe Photoshop for comparison of digital version with the original artwork is performed. Hue, color, saturation, shadows and blacks are all adjusted as required to match the original.
  • If only digitization is required, clients can request hard proofing (critical color matching) and recieve ~5 x 7" proof prints to confirm print colors match the orginal artwork.
  • $35.00
  • Hard proofing artwork is included in the cost of digitization if printing is requested or if artwork is to be uploaded to AirClix online art gallery.
  • Hard proofing using a digital file obtained by another company requires original artwork or accurate hard proof.
  • Canvas printing preparation continues with the addition of boarders (mirrored, white or black) for 0.75" or 1.5" stretcher bars.
  • Fine art paper printing may include boarders to a maximum of 1" beyond printed artwork image.
  • Canvas stretching prices include the costs of stretcher bars.
