If you’re an artist who needs high-quality digital versions of your art, we can help. Whether you are launching a limited series of fine art prints, building a product line, or documenting originals before they are sold, we ensure that you have the digital files you need. Whether scanning or photographing, we provide skillful, high-quality digitization of original works, tailored to suit your needs.
Art digitization is ideal for:
- Fine art (giclée) printing
- Photographic prints
- Online exhibits and portfolios
- Print-on-demand products (clothing, decor, etc.)
- Portfolio documentation
- Insurance records
- Social media marketing and sales
We create high-resolution digital versions of 2D artworks, suitable for fine art prints, digital prints, and a range of print-on-demand services. We use the best method to match the medium, and deliver digital files optimized for your printing needs. And we love helping artists become more informed and confident about the printing process so you can do more with their art.
For larger paintings and 3D art, we use a well-calibrated camera setup to ensure a faithful reproduction, safe handling of originals, and greater control over how details are captured (i.e. brush strokes, paper tooth, and mixed media depth).
Our precise studio setup ensures:
- Sharp details
- Accurate colours
- Textural fidelity
- No warp/distortion
- Safe handling of originals
Cost of services depends on variables such as quantity, size, art medium, and condition. Session fees start at $120, which may include 2-3 artworks. Larger collections, large scale paintings, and 3D items can also be photographed, with specific fees and timeframes to be determined upon consultation. Works on canvas must be stretched, frame-mounted, and completely dry. Works on paper (watercolour, pastel, charcoal) must be removed from frames, kept flat, and safely enclosed in a paper or plastic envelope with a backing board. All services include basic colour matching and file optimization for output to print and/or print-on-demand services. We can also optimize for output to textiles, device cases, and social media content. Retouching, restoration, advanced colour proofing, black&white conversion services are available for an additional fee. Digital image files are typically available within 8-10 business days. Final image files can be JPEG or TIFF formats at 300dpi or higher. Other file formats and resolutions are available.
Now offering services with no in-person contact!
We are committed to keeping our clients, ourselves, and our community safe and healthy! And for now, that means new protocols for contact-free service. Initial consultations are done by phone, email, or video call prior to drop-off of artworks.
Our convenient drop-off location provides physical distancing and no in-person contact, while keeping your artworks secure. At your scheduled appointment time, simply deliver your art to our secure drop-off location (located in the North End of Kelowna) for us to collect immediately. After your art has been photographed, we will return it to the same location for your scheduled pick-up.
We love seeing artists branching out to new formats, and expanding their audience. And we are proud to provide high quality digitization services to help make that happen.
