Our Art Reproduction Pricing is as follows:
Step 1: Digital Capture
We shoot your un-framed art with a Sinar 4 x 5 camera with a digital back and controlled lighting, balanced for even intensity and color across the entire original. We are generating a 200 mega-pixel file that prints 300 dpi at final print size. All prices are contingent on a minimum initial order of 1 print at close to or equal to the size of the original (see our printing price sheet for print prices).
Original with a max measure on long side up to 24” – $75.00
Original with a max measure on long side from 24” to 30” – $100.00
Original with a max measure on long side from 30” to 36” – $125.00
Original with a max measure on long side from 36” to 42” – $150.00
Original with a max measure longer than 42” – Contact us for estimate
Digital Captures Only (with no print order) – $175.00
this does not include any color correcting of the raw file.
Step 2: Color Correction and Proofing
Once we have the digital capture, we color correct the file to match the original as close as we can.
We usually pull up to two proofs in this process. Then we call you, the artist, in for approval. Color is subjective so there are times when the artist wants to have us tweak the color. We do charge for up to two additional proofs. We don’t charge for more than that, although we rarely have to do more than two additional proofs for
an artist. Our proofs are printed on the same material as the final print and measure around 8”x10”.
First Proof.. included in the digital captures cost.
Additional Proof on Canvas – $20.00
Additional Proof on Fine Art Paper – $15.00
If any restoration or changes to the image are requested that is billed at $90/hour.
For artists who already have digital files of adequate resolution
Color Correction – $25.00
Proof on Canvas – $20.00
Proof on Fine Art Paper – $15.00
We recommend a “native” resolution of 150ppi to 300ppi on files supplied for art reproduction.
We recommend files be submitted as
- Camera RAW files – This allows for optimum editing flexibility
- TIFFs – 16bit RGB (with AdobeRGB (1998) or the new ProRGB profiles embedded)
- NEVER CMYK FILES
