Artwork Scanning

If you are an artist and want to reproduce your work as a fine art print or gift item, we can digitise your work and assist with production. Our artist clients tell us we make this a seamless process, letting them get on with what they do best.

High Resolution Scanning

Using an Epson Expression 11000XL graphic scanner, we are able to achieve an extremely high quality image reproduction of your original artwork.

It is possible to scan many different types of artwork in fine detail, whatever your chosen materials, including watercolours, oils, acrylics, photographs, canvases, charcoal drawings, pastels, and pen and ink.

Depending on the medium or framing we are able to scan up to A2 in size at either 300 or 1200 dpi. Our service includes tone and colour balancing using a calibrated monitor to match the original as close as possible. We include on disc the original file, a layered Photoshop document with the alterations and a flattened 8 bit 300 dpi JPEG ready for printing. If further editing is required there may be additional charges, but this will be quoted for before we start the process.

All artwork is collected and returned in person, we don't accept delivery by postal service or courier. Delivery charges are costed by distance from HG1.

Photographic

For larger pieces, sculptures, or for items where a scanner can't be used, we can photograph your original artwork.

Using a Canon 5d Mark II and professional lenses we are able to create high resolution images that can be reproduced at large sizes.
