Digital Image Capture and Giclée printing

High Definition Digital Image capturing 

  • 1-5 images - $10.00 each
  • 6+ images - take 10% off total
  • digital images are provided on USB Flash Drive, emailed, or uploaded to the cloud for easy downloading
  • Includes 1 hour of basic image editing if needed/requested (cropping, sharpening, basic color enhancements – vibrancy, toning, etc.) as discussed. 

Enhanced editing and Color Matching to the original artwork 

  • $20.00 an hour additional charge
  • Enhanced editing. This includes removing or adding objects, people, editing faces (eyes, smiles, etc.), changing backgrounds and foregrounds, color adjustments, merging images, etc.
  • Color matching an image to an original piece of artwork.
    • Color matching can take a lot of time and paper to get the print to look like an original. The color of the light also plays a role in how colors are seen. My studio lights are set at 5800K (kelvin) or average daylight. You will see prints look different when compared between warm tungsten and cool fluorescent lights. The average midday sunlight is between 5000K-6000K.
    • An “ok” color match can usually be accomplished in less than two hours. An exceptionally good color match can take more than 4 hours.  
    • If color matching goes over 3 hours, a maximum of 3-hour charge will be applied.

    • Gallery wrap canvas adds a minimum of 2 inches of printing per side for the edges. An 18” x 24” gallery wrap image would be (18 + 4) 22” x (24 + 4) 28” = 616.

    •  Standard Wrap Canvas:

      • Printing: $43.12
