FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY: DIGITAL IMAGE CAPTURE
Our state-of-the-art camera system uses lighting and polarizing filters to capture the most detailed aspects of your artwork while eliminating shadows and glare. Advanced color profiles are created for monitor, printer, and camera to ensure the closest color match.
Set-up fee starting at $25 per job (not per image) This fee covers the cost of making test prints and color matching to original artwork. We keep working on your file until you are satisfied that you are getting the closest match possible to the original. For photographs, this fee covers work done such as re-touching, re-sizing, and adding text or other features to your photograph and may be adjusted according to time spent on working on your files.
Image capture: $27 per piece up to 40" ($50 over 40")
300 dpi, 16-bit per channel mode tif or jpg
High resolution files copied to you on CD (we provide) or your thumb drive (you provide) for $7

HOW TO USE THE PRICE CHARTS BELOW
PRINT PRICES ARE PER SQUARE INCH. To calculate the square inches of your print, multiply the height (H) times the width (W).
H x W = sq. inches
For example, if you want a 16" x 20" print, the number of square inches is 320.
Take 320 and multiply by the paper price. For a photo print, the cost would be 320 x .07 = $22.40.
If you want a 16" x 20" canvas print, the cost would be 320 x .13 = $41.60. Most of our customers want a UV protective coating on their canvases, which is an additional .017 cents. Multiply 320 x .017 and the result is $5.44. Add this to the $41.60 and this makes the total $47.04 for a 16"x20" canvas print with UV protective coating.
CUSTOM SIZES ARE EASILY CALCULATED USING THIS FORMULA. CHARTS ARE FOR STANDARD SIZES BUT WE ROUTINELY PRINT CUSTOM SIZES. If you are not sure which size you want to print, use the aspect ratio calculator to figure out all of your sizing options based on the aspect ratio of your original.
A NOTE REGARDING SMALL PRINT SIZES: We can and often do print smaller than 8x10. In small quantities, your minimum print charge will be for an 8x10 because we print on large rolls of paper and need to take waste into account.
