How We
Do It

Introduction to our Artwork and Fragile Drawing Scanning Services

Scanning and Data Solutions provide an easy and fast way to store your Artwork electronically.

Artists often need to duplicate or backup their pictures and paintings. Our large format colour scanner scans items up to 42″ wide by an unlimited length to TIFF, JPEG, JPG or PDF. There are various colour depths, pure black and white, greyscale and 24 bit colour.

Our Large Format Flatbed Scanner allows Fragile documents to be safely scanned at High Resolution, up to 1200dpi, however 600dpi is a typical resolution used.

We can scan thick card and foam board, we have even scanned a painting that was mounted on 12mm chipboard and even charcoal artwork drawn with charcoal scanned beautifully with no damage or smearing to the original. 

In summary, this is what we have scanned so far on our large format colour scanners:

  • Posters mounted on foam board
  • Paintings mounted on chipboard
  • Charcoal drawings on cardboard
  • 30 Meter long cartoon, A0 wide on paper
  • Oil painting on hardboard
  • Fabric oil painting mounted on cardboard
  • Various water colour paintings on cardboard and paper
  • 1200 x 2440mm kitchen worktop.

Our usual output formats would be an uncompressed TIFF, as this will provide the best scanning results, plus a compressed PDF or JPEG format.

Delivery of data is by email, Wetransfer or our Cloud Service.
