Paintings, Drawings, and Collages

Unlike most conventional art scanning services, we have an immense amount of control over the lighting within our scanner. This allows us to carefully adjust our settings in order to properly describe the original artwork in the best manner possible.

Collages and and textured paintings are captured with a sense of physicality usually not possible with a conventional flatbed scanner.

Whether textured or flat, scans of your artwork will always have extremely even lighting across the entire scan. 

We scan artwork – framed or unframed – up to 36″ x 60″ @ 600 PPI – resulting in a file over 2gb. 

For pieces larger than 36″ wide, we can use our photography department and get you a very high resolution multi-shot fine art capture.

Graphite and Charcoal Drawings

Graphite is notoriously difficult to capture due to the inherent reflectivity of graphite as a material. 

Charcoal and pastel drawings can also be very difficult due to the delicate nature of the drawing surface. 

Using our flatbed scanners, all artwork is scanned face up without any contact to the drawing surface. 

Our ability to accurately control the lighting and optics on our scanners allows for captures that are very true to the original drawings, in terms of line density, shadow detail, and overall clarity.

3D TOPOGRAPHICAL SCANNING

Using our METIS flatbed scanner we can capture 3D topographical height map data from your artwork, as well as relative gloss data that can be used for a variety of specialized applications ranging from 3D Textures and Shaders, 3D Textured Printing, Laser Engraving, and more.

A considerable variety of output formats and resolutions are available for this very specialized fine art scanning service. 

Gold Foil & Metallic Surfaces

Properly capturing metallic surfaces – either with a camera or with a scanner – can generally be very difficult. Golds turn yellow or brown, and silvers turn into some sort of bland grey without any life to them… above all, usually not good.

We’re able to specifically adjust for gold foils and other metallic surfaces in order to properly capture the way your eye generally sees a metallic material on the surface of your artwork. 

Scanning Fabrics

With our large format flatbed scanner, scanning fabrics – in great detail – is no problem.

The overall materiality and ‘hand’ of the fabric is communicated clearly. 

Tile & Architectural Materials

With an exceptional depth of field available, we can scan tile, wood, raw materials, and more.

Surface feel and texture are immediately apparent.
