To ensure optimal quality, it's helpful to know which format and media are best for your job. Xerographic copies are ideal for black & white line art or coarse-screen grayscale images. For better quality shading and tones in black & white and color copies, dye-based is the preferred method
The paper choice can also effect the overall look of your prints. A general rule-of-thumb is that the heavier the ink coverage, the heavier the paper should be. We offer 24 lb., 35 lb. and 46 lb. bond for our dye-based printers.

This streamlined management tool can dramatically affect the course of your project by improving productivity and saving you time, money and headaches.
We will scan or electronically convert your plans to non-alterable image files. These files are stored as a project document collection, available for viewing, ordering and distribution via the web.

SCANNING & ARCHIVING 

B&W and Color Small Format Scanning: Maximum of 11"x17" for documents and smaller photos and artwork mounted to rigid materials.
B&W Large Format Scanning: 36" wide x 20' long. Your old drawings, construction plans and space-consuming blue lines can be scanned and digitally archived for later printings. Images can be saved in a variety of formats including tiffs or pdfs. We also support the military .CAL file format.
Color Large Format Scanning: 42" x 20' (from flexible originals, under 1/8th inch thick only).
Digital Captures: For thick or larger-sized pieces, delicate or antique works, we recommend digital capture.
Archiving Storage: With our digital archive service, we can save your files to CDs, DVDs, or your portable disk or jump drive.

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO 

High resolution digital photography is the ideal way to capture large-sized pieces, delicate or antique works, even warped or concave portraits and artwork.

Additionally, the original does not have to be pressed or rolled flat. It offers higher quality than standard scanning, preserving every detail of your most treasured paintings, photographs, and memorabilia.

Once captured, we can save the file in the format you choose (JPEG, PDF, TIFF, etc.). We can also print your work as a standard copy, or on one of our fine art papers (click on "Fine Art Reproduction"  for details).

 RAW CAPTURE
For clients who are not ordering prints and have their own image editing software (like Photoshop), a raw capture is an economical choice. We'll provide the image as shot, and leave the cropping, color correction and contrast adjustment to you.
Standard turnaround time: 24 hours, in most cases.
STANDARD CAPTURE
A standard capture includes basic correction of color, contrast and levels. This is the ideal choice for most artwork.
Standard turnaround time: 24 hours, in most cases.
PREMIUM CAPTURE
The premium capture is specifically for artists with more exacting color requirements, including adjustments of tone and saturation levels. More extensive correction, as well as restoration work and repairing damaged areas, is available for an additional charge. An 8"x10" proof print on fine art paper is $10.00.
Standard turnaround time: 48 hours, in most cases.
It is our goal to duplicate the original artwork as closely as possible. Due to limitations of the printing process, and differences in the way ink prints on media, an exact match of color and tone may not be achievable. Standard turnaround times are approximate. Captures needed sooner than the standard turnaround time may be subject to a 25% rush fee.
