How to Use Our Scan Calculator?

All scan pricing is based on the same cost per MegaByte (MB), so it doesn’t matter what type of original you have. The total file size of your scan(s) is used to determine the appropriate price break (see table below form). Please understand that this calculator is for estimating only. If you require a firm quote, please call or email.

1. Enter the quantity of scans desired. The price breaks start at $0.50/MB and go down accordingly as your volume increases.

2. Enter the resolution and the output dimensions desired. The optimal resolution for fine art printmaking is 300 dpi, though for certain textured media and larger print sizes, a smaller dpi may be considered, ask our production department for there advice.

3. Double-click the CALCULATE button and the pricing information will be displayed below.

3. The TOTAL COSTS reflect the number of scans you indicated + ONE set-up fee. Applicable taxes are not included.

Save Money: If you have more than one scan, a single set-up fee could cover your entire scan order if combined with a print project. Ask us how you can save on your next project!
