  • Images cleaned/retouched by hand

Give your paintings, illustrations and photos the high definition treatments they deserve. As artists and photographers ourselves, we would not settle for anything less.

Color Matching & Separation

Print accurate reproductions of all CMYK-compatible colors. Scanning alone will get you most of the way there, plenty of clients are happy with the results. But there are occasions where color matching is a core concern and this is why we recommend our color separation services, which bring a whole new dimension to the art of color matching.

Color Variants

Our designers isolate each color of your design onto separate layers of a Photoshop document, making it fast and easy to create alternate colorway prints.

Color Books

For projects where color matching is critical, we recommend standardized color systems, like Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and more.

NOTE: Not all colors or finishes can be scanned and/or reprinted. Artwork with metallic/fluorescent inks will be converted into CMYK. Your mileage may vary when scanning specialty images or spot colors.

High Definition Digital Scanners

  • Drum Scanning: For Artwork, Pictures & Prints
  • Cruse Scanning: For Large or Oversized Pieces

Difference Between Drum Scanners & Cruse Scanners

The main difference between drum scanning and Cruse scanning is the method of scanning. Drum scanning rotates the artwork while the scanner head remains stationary, while Cruse scanning moves the scanner head across the stationary artwork. Cruse scanners, on the other hand, use a scanning device mounted on an automated arm, making it better suited for scanning flat, textured surfaces, such as fabrics, wallpaper, and tiles.

The choice between these two scanning methods depends on the specific requirements of the project, such as the size,texture, and level of detail required. Our scanning professionals decide which approach to use on a a case-by-case basis

Art Prints & Posters On-Demand

Print your designs on archival quality paper. Turn originals into a collectible, signable art print that will last for years to come.

You can also try our our hugely popular Mystical - a matte, textured replica of handmade art paper made from installable vinyl for framing, wallpaper or wall decals.

Art Canvas Rolls for Stretching or Framing

We also print on canvas, the industry standard for giclee printing. It adds an air of authenticity to your prints. We do recommend additional color processing to account for the slight shift away from pure white.

One way to achieve more color saturation and less processing, is to print on our Canvas, Artist Canvas, Criss Cross and Grass Cloth matte vinyl materials.

Customer Profiles: The People We Work With


Artists, Painters & Illustrators

As artists and craftsmen, we fully understand and appreciate the unique nature of the creative process. This is why each piece is scanned and configured individually by an expert who has done it thousands of times and knows which settings and lighting work best with each medium.

State of the Art, Custom Scanning

From irregular surfaces of oil and acrylics, to textured watercolor paper, to fine inks, our highly customized approach towards digitizing art is what allows us to capture the subtle details that create faithful representations of your drawings, paintings and illustrations.

Museums, Galleries and Talent Agencies

Representating artists accurately and clearly is something we are passionate about. As designers and craftsmen, we got into professional graphics because we found most print shops and design studios could not match our expectations on consistency and attention to detail. We feel this level of focus and appreciation for the work is what distinguishes a cheap copy from a masterpiece.

Print Your Scans on Canvas & Wallpaper

We on a variety of textured materials (canvas, vinyl or paper) Extra large rolls are available - up to 48"x96" which opens up a lot of creative possibilities. We also print on canvas for stretching or framing. Larger graphics for wall murals/decals are also possible thanks to our printable wallcoverings - a popular choice for art installations and immersive experiences.

NOTE: All wallcoverings are code compliant and thoroughly tested for durability, safety & environmental impact.


Homeowners, Contractors & Interior Designers

Renovations often lead to discoveries of ancient wallpaper designs, long thought extinct. This is usually when we get the call to restore damaged samples, which is our most-requested specialty. You send a sample, we scan and digitally repair it, and send you a printable file which works with any printshop.

Print samples or entire rolls of old wallpaper

We take the guesswork out of turning ancient samples into mint-condition, fully installable wallpaper. You'll also get live press samples for review. It's the best way to experience the quality, material and texture of the final product before you decide to pull the trigger.

Note: While installation is not a service we offer, much of our work is geared towards making this process as straightforward as possible for installers. The use of panel schematics, online guides and our availability for direct consultation go a long way towards making this process approachable and efficient.
