The first and most important step in any print or art reproduction is the Scan or Art Capture. We have faithfully captured ORIGINAL Renoir, Picasso, Miro, Helleu, etc. Your print quality will be only as good as the scan, so a careful and high quality approach to this phase is critical.
We begin by photographing your original art with a Hasselblad H medium format camera with Zeiss optics and calibrated lighting system. We use a Zig-Align laser system to make sure your original is perfectly parallel to the camera when captured. The lighting layout is specifically optimized for total control over reflections and highlights, depending on the texture and surface of your original art. A color target is photographed with the original for reference in color fidelity. From the original master file we include up to four different file formats/resolutions for use on your website, social media, gallery submissions, etc.
Included is also a match print on your favorite paper or canvas. This serves as a color matched sample to the original to verify the accuracy of the capture and a sampling of what the reproduction will look like.
*95.00 per capture.
