Image Capture

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. 

Documentation

$25 flat rate

You receive two files; one TIFF at approx 8″x10″ at 300dpi (20 MB) for publication and one lower resolution JPEG for sharing on social and your website.

Reproduction

$50 Minimum

You receive two files; one TIFF at approx 20″x24″ at 300dpi (120 MB) for fine art printing and one lower resolution JPEG for sharing on social and your website.

Film Scanning

Special Quote

We also scan from traditional slides and negatives. Film can sometimes require extra cleaning for dust and scratches, so pricing can vary accordingly.
