Fine Art Reproduction

 

Scanning

With the largest glass flatbed scanner in Western Canada, we capture detail like never before. Multiple cameras and adjustable light sources pick up depth and brush strokes at the highest resolution, allowing artwork to be faithfully reproduced at the same size or larger.

Art takes many forms, and so do we. Watercolour, oil, acrylic, graphite, ink, pastel, charcoal, wood, textiles… we’re ready for anything.

Flat vs Angle Scanning

Typical flatbed scanning incorporates a single camera and light source that capture your original from a uniform perspective. This is great for documents and flat artwork, but was always limiting for fine artwork.



 

Our large flatbed scanner incorporates state-of-the-art Visual3D technology. As the scan head passes across the original, dual adjustable light sources illuminate the scanning area at different angles. This enables the four cameras to capture depth and texture, simulating a 3D effect that wasn’t possible before. Brush strokes, grain, and subtle tones come to life, allowing us to digitize surfaces such as painted canvas, wood, fabrics, and metals.

Detail Sample

 

Printing

There’s nothing like an original painting… but our prints come close.

Our wide format art printer uses eleven photographic and archival inks, including three levels of black, allowing it to achieve an unprecedented colour gamut with rich, vibrant colours and smooth tonal transitions.

Each print head contains 360 nozzles with low vibration meniscus control for highly-accurate dot shapes and placement, controlling ink droplets as small as 3.5 picoliter and line accuracy +/- 0.26 mm.

Capable of printing up to 2880×1440 dpi.
