Fine Art Printing + Scanning

They work hard to exceed customer expectations and requirements – it’s really true. They are the exception to the rule as far as service goes today.

Hi-Res Scanning

In our Fine Arts Department, we offer high-resolution scanning services for reproducing and archiving original documents, photographs, and other works of art. Our trained Fine Arts Team is experienced scanning for galleries, museums, private collections, and individual artists, and will handle your originals with the utmost care. 

We scan a wide range of media such as art, photographic images, historical documents, graphic design images, and color line plots.  We can scan up to 1200 PPI in color or grayscale to capture as much detail as possible. Our rule of thumb: if it’s 2D, we’ll scan it for you!

Hi-Res Printing

Our specially trained Fine Arts Team guides each project using an inkjet printer equipped with archival inks and prints on a variety of materials including canvas and window film. Our semi-matte and gloss photo papers are light-fast up to 100 years, guaranteeing that your print will look amazing for at least a century.

We are known for our color-matching precision and quality control.  Our Color Team manages rigorous color-production standards by regularly calibrating our equipment and profiling our paper right here at the shop. We maintain a wide variety of archival papers and mounting materials to suit your project needs and preferences. Through our Fine Arts Department, we also offer giclée prints, wide or small format photographic prints, posters, and color renderings as well as reproductions of art including oil paintings, watercolors, and collages.
