Economy Scanning

Economy Scans are an excellent choice for family archives, images that may only be viewed on screen, FPO scans or for vintage photographs. We utilize the latest in film scanning technology for various film positives (transparencies or slides) and negative films as well as reflective (prints) artwork. We accept 35mm, 120mm, and 4x5 film and reflective originals up to 8.5" x 11".

All Economy Scans are RGB color space. Scans are cropped and rotated to the correct orientation with minimal cleaning and color corrections. These scans are especially ideal for Clients who want to do their own post production, clean up, compositing, and custom color treatments prior to printing.

Economy Scans are also a perfect way to do test scans for larger batches where only a few selects may need to be scanned to a higher quality or resolution.

Turnaround

Normal turnaround is 1-2 weeks. Please Note: While we always try to return your job ASAP, actual turnaround time depends upon quantity, size of scans, and current work in house. Please call for scheduling if your job or project requires a quicker turnaround. Rush services are available.

Drum Scanning

With 3 commercial drum scanners available, we are able to handle all of your high end scanning projects. We can scan transparency film, negative film and unmounted prints up to 16"x16". For oversize prints and negatives, please call our studio for other scanning/digitizing options.

We carefully fluid mount all film for optimum quality and protection when scanning. Prints are wrapped around the drum under optically clear film which ensures the print is completely flat to the drum for ultimate sharpness.

Heidelberg Tango Drum Scanner

Our Heidelberg Tango features an oversized drum where we can mount originals up to 16"x16". With it's unique interface and excellent sharpness, we're able to do multiple scans of an original for stitching to produce extra large scans when needed. This scanner features a true optical resolution of 11,000 dpi with a dynamic range of 4.2 to ensure that all the information contained on your film or print is captured in the resulting scan.

Screen 1045ai Drum Scanner

Our Screen 1045ai drum scanners have an 8000 dpi optical scanning resolution and the ability to scan originals of up to 11" x 17". Again, we fluid mount all film for optimum quality and protection when scanning. The Screen 1045ai also allows us to manually focus on the grain of the film or paper, resulting in extremely sharp scans with an unsurpassed dynamic color/tonal range.

Scan Types: Economy Vs Portfolio vs Press Ready

We offer three types of drum scans to fit different project requirements.

Economy Drum Scans

Our Economy Drum Scans are available to those Clients who would like to save money on their scans and complete the post production themselves. These scans are great for images that might be used in a composite or will have a significant amount of editing or retouching done after the scan is produced..

We'll provide a well balanced scan that contains all of the RAW information contained in the film, with great shadow detail and highlight information. Economy Drum Scans will be cropped, rotated and saved only. Color corrections, dust removal and post production are not included with these scans.

Portfolio Drum Scans

We also provide high quality drum scans optimized for the RGB color space. Portfolio Scans are recommended not only for fine art printing, portfolio output and photographic film output, but also for images that might be used in a composite or enhanced before going to press or being printed.

Portfolio scans are individually adjusted for color balance according to our calibrated monitors, adjusted for maximum density as well as cleaned and spotted while at 100% enlargement. If we are creating the final archival pigment prints, we can optimize the file and provide swatch proofs or full proofs on your selected paper stock.

Press Ready

These RGB/CMYK scans are the highest quality drum scans available at Hanson Digital. Press Scans are recommended for jobs that require the utmost in quality, whether it's for CMYK accuracy* on a commercial printing press or RGB for archival pigment printing.

Press Scans are optimized for your printing space and are individually adjusted for optimum highlight & shadow density, color balanced, with ink densities adjusted for the type of paper stock your job will be printed on.

With this service, scans are thoroughly cleaned and spotted while at 200% enlargement to ensure quality in the finished piece. The final image(s) can also be separated to your printer's specifications. We can provide either fine art archival printing proofs, or g7 Contract Proofs depending on your application.

Color Matching

Both Portfolio & Press Drum Scans from positive film or prints are matched to the original source. If you would like to remove or adjust a cast in the original, please let us know when submitting your project. Scans from negatives will require a color guide. We can use an original print, digital file or a contact sheet to use as a guide for color correcting your scans. Images that require extensive computer time to match a provided sample (for example, matching scans from original negatives to prints that have been heavily dodged and burned) may incur extra charges.

If there are special considerations we should keep in mind when scanning your project, please let us know this when the job is submitted so we can go over the possibilities. Because scanning and color work is often subjective in nature, the more information you can provide us with when you submit your job, the more the results will be tailored specifically to you. 

Turnaround

Normal turnaround for Portfolio & Press Drum Scans is 48-72hrs. Normal turnaround for Economy Drum Scans is 1-2 weeks. Please Note: While we always try to return your job ASAP, actual turnaround time depends upon quantity, size of scans, and current work in house. Please call for scheduling if your job or project requires a quicker turnaround. Rush services are available.

Fine Art Copywork & Artwork Photography

An accurate reproduction of your original work of art is a top priority for any artist. Whether your goal is to produce high-quality editions, an online portfolio, press-ready digital files, or fine art printing, we understand the unique challenges of copy work and strive for the highest quality in every file we produce. From flat artwork and photographs to large-format paintings and fine art, we enjoy helping our Clients to present their work at its best. Our process is not only top notch, but also one of the safest ways to digitize original art. Location services are available, please send an inquiry here.

Our Process

Discussing your long and short term goals for your project is an important first step. We'll first schedule a drop off appointment with you to go over your project. Different lighting techniques can be employed to maximize or minimize texture and detail in the final capture. For shiny or varnished originals, we can polarize the lights to control glare and/or specular highlights.

We utilize precision laser camera alignment tools, to be sure the camera is completely parallel to the artwork surface, resulting in extremely sharp and undistorted copy work captures.

Our Northlight HID lighting system provides very even lighting that satisfy museum standards, and are virtually heat-free, without the high infrared emissions and ultraviolet levels that can damage artwork.

Our color managed workflow begins with custom generated ICC profiles specific to the camera and lighting systems. This ensures excellent color reproduction and fidelity in the final captures.

We have the ability to produce 16-bit digital files in excess of 1 gigabyte in size direct from your flat artwork. Larger files are available with multiple captures and stitching.

Our Tools

Hasselblad h6d 100c

Our newest capture system, the new Hasselblad 100 megapixel medium format camera is truly stunning and efficient. With a single capture file size approaching 30x40 @ 300 dpi coupled with the fidelity of medium format digital, we are setting the new standard for artwork capture, both in quality and throughput.

Betterlight Scanning Back

We also utilize a state-of-the-art Betterlight Scanning back. 384 megapixels of raw digital capture from the Betterlight Scan back on a traditional tech camera, or 4x5 camera, create results that are unsurpassed, rivaling the quality of 8x10 transparency film.

Artwork Capture/Scan Types

Economy Copy Work Captures/Scans are for Clients who would like to do the post production and color correction work themselves. We'll provide a quality RAW capture, verify we have enough shadow detail, highlight detail and over all edge to edge sharpness.
