Scanning Prices

We Scan through Glass without the effects of glare! There is no need to disassemble your expensive frame work.*

Our prices aren't "cheap" because our process is cheap, they are "cheap" because we use the latest technology that allows us, in many cases, to decrease the turn-around time and effort. We pass that savings on to the artist so they can invest it in their prints. As of July 2013, there are not finer or more-current technologies available for fine art reproduction than the ones we use to reproduce your art.

We have three price tables for each of your needs:

Table 1 - Discount Complete Color Setup: and includes a discount for artists who print a substantial portion of their art in our shop

Table 2 - Scan and Go, No Color Setup, scan only: for archiving art in an un-color-corrected format, or intend to edit the digital file at a later time.

Table 3 - Complete Color Setup, standard pricing: and is for artists who want a complete color setup, but also wish to print at home or print with other outside shops.

This explains what is included with the Compete Color Setup Service:

Scan and Color Setup is the complete turn-key service that provides a digital file that it is ready to print on any modern‡ hardware platform in the world.

Scan and color setup services include scanning your art, color correcting, and proofing on gallery grade fine art paper.

Complete Color Setup Steps:


This explains what is included with the
— Scan-and-Go Service —


FYI:

Your color-corrected digital file will be industry compliant so that you may have giclees printed at other fine art printing companies (should the need ever arise).

Giclee Artist's Proofs are printed on Fine Art Paper, and are up to 14" on their widest dimension (e.g. 11x14, 8x14, 14x14, etc).

The Giclee Artist Proof is normally kept by the artist as a record of the colors that are on the digital file. Normally, an artist will archive the Artist Proof in an archival binder. This serves at least three purposes:

  1. It protects the proof in an archival manner
  2. It is a manageable system to maintain (the proofs aren't so big that you have to keep them under your bed)
  3. It makes it easy to flip through the portfolio and show potential buyers your complete collection.

FOOTNOTES:

Depending on the size of the original, the final TIFF files can be so large that low-end computers can not process or print them. Some older computers might be able to call up the TIFF file on their screen, but they may not have the processing power needed to process or print the file (and that is why we also supply the smaller JPEG file. The JPEG can be processed by slower computers, but is not suitable for gallery grade printing.)

* If the art is not matted, and the frame makes direct contact with the art, the edge of the frame may cast a 1/4-3/8 inch shadow on one edge of the painting--usually the "top edge". This shadow may require cropping if it can not be corrected. If cropping is unacceptable, then the artist should remove the art from the frame.

**When comparing prices, remember to ask how the digital image is being captured. It makes a world of difference if you find similar or cheaper prices, but the company is using a digital snap shot.

There is not a large price gap between the Scan and Go prices and the Complete Color Setup prices because our refined workflow allows us to (very often) capture art colors within 90-95% of the original's true color.

Prices are subject to change. Errors will be corrected verbally or on the next revision.
