Wham, bam, thank you scan.
Artwork Scanning and Digital Reproduction
Artwork reproduction, or scanning, is a specialty service Left Bank Art Group provides for artists, enabling them to digitise their original artworks at the highest of resolutions, for printing reproduction or simply archiving.
We’ve invested heavily into premiere scanning equipment and custom colour profiles, ensuring the process from capture to print is seamless and on point. Our customers quite often can’t tell the difference between their original and the print!
We have recently installed one of the largest flatbed scanners in Australia – capable of scanning 2A0 (1220 x 1778mm) in a single pass, at 600 pixels per inch (over 1200 megapixels). Larger artworks are scanned insections and stitched together.
The artwork is captured through the glass by the scanning head, only millimetres away, so every single detail is captured with outstanding detail. After scanning artworks for over 10 years, we’ve found this method to produce far better results than photography due to the controlled, even lighting with no distortion.
As many artists these days are proficient in Photoshop, we do offer a raw scan only service for those who want to do their own post production. We also provide full service scanning where you are provided with colour correct files in a variety of sizes and formats.
