Depending on whether you need documentation or reproduction, there are two levels of image capture available for artwork. Other than the larger file size, the main difference is that if you’re printing at Fidelis, additional tweaks are done to correct the images as close as possible to the originals. Since documentation files are typically being used for social media or websites, they are closely calibrated on screen, but no print testing is included.

As much as we would like to keep the upfront costs of documentation and reproduction down to a minimum, some originals present more challenges than others. This means, they may require additional time for setting up and handling, as well as dust and debris removal.
If your originals are over-sized, have high gloss resin, or are in frames behind glass, there is an extra $25 surcharge per piece.
Not all originals arrive in perfect condition, so that has not been stored in archival sleeving often inherits fine scratches and includes dust that both show up in the scan. Excessive dust and scratch removal is not included with the price of your scan. If it is discovered that your images need special attention we will contact you with a quote before we proceed.
