Scanning Artwork & Proofing ready for print.
We are well known for the highest quality scanning of artwork. The core of our business is fine art scanning and is a key step in the faithful reproduction of your printed artwork.
Fine Art Repro
By using a professional, class-leading, hardware colour calibrated flatbed scanner, we are able to achieve the best possible reproduction of your paintings, drawings and illustrations. Our scans are very sharp and therefore capture every detail of the original.

The Proofing Process
We proof each artwork on your choice of Hahnemühle paper, so that you can see exactly how the final prints will look, taking into consideration the surface textures and paper tones.
With each new client, we like to discuss the artwork and paper choice, to understand the nature of what is required from the print editions. Through our knowledge and experience, we can offer feedback and involve the artist throughout the fine art reprographic process.

Colour matching to originals
- Ideal for giclée printing
- Includes full colour balance and printed proofs for client approval
Our scanner is highly calibrated and captures the maximum possible gamut of colours, but for a more precise colour fidelity to the original we recommend our colour matching service. The following one-off set up cost includes A4 proofs that are compared with the original artwork in an ISO standard lighting controlled environment for colour balance edits and other checks. Proofs are discussed and approved with each client where required.
