HIGH RESOLUTION SCANNING FOR FINE-ART REPRODUCTION

High-resolution scanning is the process of digitizing a work of art for the purpose of print reproduction or simply to preserve a painting, drawing, photo or sculpture in digital format. Artists looking for fine-art printing services choose Canvas Giclee Printing. We are skilled photographers and lighting experts with years of printing experience. We use the Hasselblad H5D-50 megapixel camera to produce a high resolution digital file of your original artwork. Our printing team goes through an intensive process of color correction and proofing to make sure the digital image matches the original artwork as closely as possible. Please note that you must request a proof if you want to see the proof before printing the final order. A proof is a small rolled print of your image (approximate size, 11×14) on the print medium you have chosen for your print order; canvas or paper. A single proof costs $20 including shipping. This is an added cost to the scan charge, meaning it is not included in the price chart below.

The scan prices below are for creating the high-resolution digital image file and providing a disc with those images. Scanning is a one-time fee per original painting and the fee is determined based on the size of each original to be scanned.  Once a high-resolution digital file of your artwork is created, it is archived on our secured database, not on a public server. Your digital files are safe with us and will be accessed only to print repeat orders for you. Pricing for art reproduction on gallery-wrapped canvas prints or fine-art paper prints is here.

Turnaround time for scanning service is around 2 weeks. The first step to scanning your artwork is to place an order using our custom order form.  On this form you will select the method of sending your original artwork. You can hand deliver it to our studio. We enjoy meeting fellow artists! Or you can ship it to the address below. If you cannot deliver or ship your original artwork to us, please visit our blog for detailed information on ‘How to Photograph your Paintings for Print Reproduction.

TIPS FOR PACKING AND SHIPPING YOUR ORIGINAL ARTWORK

Beyond the fine art printing services we provide in our studio, we also understand how valuable your original artwork is and that it needs to be handled with care and respect to and from our location. Getting your art to us safely is of great concern. We recommend using a professional packing and shipping service of your choice such as FedEx, Mailbox Express, or UPS Store. However, if you choose to package your artwork yourself,  we would like to provide some packing and shipping guidelines to facilitate the safe arrival of your original work of art to Canvas Giclee Printing.  Click here for our contact address.
