Flatbed Scanning

Flatbed Scanning offers the highest resolution for your reproductions and artwork. Prints made from high resolution scans result in amazing images that are difficult to distinguish from the originals. Flatbed scans over 18×24″ will need additional file prep. Please consult with our studio specialists for a custom price quote.

  • Cost of scanning covers initial scan and scan file without any adjustments made.
  • You may deliver your items to be scanned by visiting our storefront in Austin, Texas. Or you may mail your items to us at your cost for shipping both ways. Our address is: 2438 W Anderson Lane #C2A, Austin, TX 78757
  • You will receive two files. The first is a duplicate of the file we use for printing, primarily a high-resolution TIFF. The second file is a web ready .jpg sized to provide a clean image on screen but small enough to prevent unauthorized reproductions. Scans are delivered on a flash drive for $5 or free via Dropbox

PROOFING

Proofs are created so we are in complete agreement with the desired outcome before the final output. Small proofs are created on the chosen substrate and analyzed by our production specialist before sending or presenting to you. We are committed to making each print perfect and we’ll perform every necessary step to do so.

files from scan or photography:

Single Proof

Included with price of scan or photograph

We will make you an 8×10″ or 8×8″ print for you to inspect.  This will allow you to make changes before you order your print/s.

Additional Proofs

$20 per proof

The first will be printed without any retouching, the second with adjustments to improve the look of the print.  That way you can compare both versions and give us your feedback before placing your order.

We are primarily a Printing and Framing Company. We offer other services to accommodate these specialties. Due to limited resources and equipment, we cannot guarantee 100% color matching for scanning, photography and proofing. If you are not completely satisfied with our digital capture after four proofs, we will gladly refund your costs.

If you would like us to mail your proof, please contact us.

Ordering Process & Guidelines

Have an old family photo that has been damaged over the years? Took an amazing photo while on vacation but the photo turned out much darker than you expected? We can help.

Resolution

Our recommended resolution for printing images is 300 dpi at full size. We can print images at a higher resolution, and a lower resolution as well. However, if we print at a lower resolution, keep in mind that the image quality may suffer.  Regardless, we will do our best to make sure your prints look the best they can.  Please send the largest file size available to ensure that your images print well.

Uploading Images

File Format- We accept the following file formats: JPEG, TIF, PSD

JPEG files- JPEG’s are generally smaller and upload quicker.

TIF or PSD (Photoshop) files- TIF & PSD files do not compress files in the same manner as JPEG’s, so these formats are optimal for working with and printing.  Since these files are larger, they may take longer to upload.

Saving your TIF file as an “LZW” TIF (which is a lossless compression technique) will allow for a faster upload.

Be sure to FLATTEN all TIF and PSD files before uploading.
