FLATBED SCANNING

We have a 2400 dpi, large-format flatbed scanner which is ideal for smaller works on paper or canvas. Larger works are scanned as multi-part scans and montaged together. Max size 24" x 36"

There are two levels of scanning: General and Archival. Both are suitable for printing; the difference is in the amount of work you want done to your scan before it's deemed acceptable. This is a personal choice and the cost difference merely reflects a difference in the quantity of work required to gain a different level of polish.

• Multi-part scans: $35 for the first, and $15 for each subsequent scan required for a single work (max original size 24" x 36").

PHOTOGRAPHY

We offer professional digital photographic services to capture larger works, most painted pieces and works with delicate or 3-dimensional surfaces. This is in-house only so works will need to be transported to and from our Williamsburg studio.

• Prices start at $115. Works over 24" x 36" may need multiple shots to generate high enough resolution. a custom estimate will be generated. There is also a day rate of $800 where we will photograph as many works as possible in an 8-hour time frame.

• All shots are color corrected to reflect 100% accurate reproduction of the original art.

• Proof print of each shot is included.

• By arrangement only. Shooting is done in 1 day but file turn-around: is 2-3 days minimum.

* Discounts are available for larger orders.

We will require your artwork to be kept in the studio for up to 1 week in order to ensure the work of color matching and proofing is complete.
