Flatbed scannig is suitable for flat artwork or photographic prints up to A0 size. Normal spotting of dust and minor scratches is included in the preparation. We will also adjust color, exposure and contrast to create a file that will result in a pigment (giclée) print or photographic print that best represents your image. Normally, this will be as close a reproduction of the artwork or print as we can achieve. Please keep in mind that artwork with a highly reflective surface (e.g. varnished oil paintings, certain charcoal drawings, etc.) may result in scanned files with light glares, a lower level of detail or reduced color fidelity. Correction of more serious damage to the original artwork or print, or improving a file with scanning deficiencies, as well as extraordinary work of any kind on the image file, may entail extra charges.

Each scan is saved as 8 bit, sRGB, TIFF file, unless otherwise requested. Black and white images scanned in grayscale mode would be one third the file size of color scan.

Your scans can be archived to a CD-R/DVD, USB Drive, or transmitted to you via our file server for you to download at no extra cost. To help determine what size scan you might need for printing, refer to our File Size Chart.
