You would be surprised at how much scanning we do. Not everything can be found on the web! We have been scanning and retouching for decades! We think nothing of jobs where other companies have failed.
We are consistently recommended by other suppliers, clients and even our competition. Our high-end scanners produce professional quality digital images, from almost any substrate. We can scan from prints, printed material, transparencies, colour negatives and with our high resolution flatbed Heidelberg scanner we have even scanned tiles, jewellery, fabric and ornate wooden carvings. For example, this Monet painting was scanned for the National Gallery of Scotland. Colour accuracy was critical, as was ensuring as much detail and clarity as possible.
Let us scan a sample to verify you are happy with the results. All our high-resolution scans come with free colour proofs.
Our Heidelberg Hercules imagesetter can produce film output up to B2+. We produce a wide format of film specifications from positive and negative, 50 line screen through to 200 line screen and resolutions from 1250 to 4080. We accept all major application files and we regularly receive jobs that other repro companies/printers are unable to output. Our film calibration is extremely accurate (±0.5%) and believe in taking the best care of our equipment, therefore sustaining the highest quality.

We have supplied artists and print workshops with random dot screens for a variety of traditional and experimental printing processes. Your random dot screen, sometimes called stochastic screening, can be printed up to B2 size and delivered worldwide.
