How to get started
The first step is to create a digital file of your artwork. With a painting on a flat non rigid paper, I will scan the painting into my computer or I will photograph it depending on size and medium used.
Once I have the digital file, I will review it to make any corrections of blemishes, etc. Using Adobe Photoshop I will adjust the colors and values to obtain an image that is as close as possible to the original piece of artwork.
I will produce one to two proofs (approximately 8” x 10”) for the customer’s review. Additional adjustments will be made if necessary. When satisfied the customer will sign the proof which I will retain so it can be referenced for all future printings of the image.
I use an HP flatbed scanner with a scanning surface of 8 1/2 x 11 or a Canon Scanner with a surface of 11 1/2 x 17 1/2. I have a Nikon D5200 for all my photography work with special lighting and gray card for reference.
I use an Epson Artisan 1430 series capable of printing up to 13 x 19 borderless printing.
I charge $40 to scan the painting or Photograph it. The scan charge includes all corrections for blemishes (or removing something from the image or color corrections to have the reproduction match the original. The charge also includes two proofs for the artist to review to obtain agreement on the reproduction.
If you provide a disk with your digital image and no other work is necessary I will charge $10 and provide you one proof for your review.
Once agreement has been reached on the image, the image will be archived on a CD.
The price for printing on paper is $.16 per square inch.
The reproductions can be of any size both smaller and larger than the original. The amount of enlargement will be dependent upon the dpi of the image.
