Photograph and Negative Scanning Process
6000 Dpi Flatbed Scanner
We will take in your Photograph (s) and prepare them for printing on our Canon IPF8300 Image Prograf Fine Art Printer. In the case of your supplied photos and negatives, prints are sometimes only as good as the image (s) supplied. We will do our best to get you the highest quality reproduction possible. In the case of older photos that require touch ups from tears and smudges please inquire about our touch up service. Your artwork will be captured in one of 3 ways. 6000 Dpi Flatbed Scanner, Betterlight Digital Scanning back with a 4×5 View Camera, or our Canon Digital SLR System.

Scanning Back Setup
We use our Betterlight 6000 144 Megapixel Scanning Back with a 4×5 View Camera to capture the best image possible. If there is gloss in your image we can remove any light flare with our Double Light Polarizing system. Colour correction is aided by both Betterlight and X-Rite systems conforming to ICC profiles. Maximum Artwork size to capture in house is 48” x 96”.
