Fine Art Scanning & Printing

At Focalpoint Digital we have a large format fine artwork scanning service, our photographers are fully trained to make sure all files are balanced, retouched, separated and colour matched* to your specification. We can scan artwork of almost any size from postage stamps to huge floor graphics however our standard max original artwork size is up to 1600mm x 1200mm. Our screens & machines are calibrated here to industry standard. We colour match to the original artwork on screen. If you have prints from our in house printing machine there is an additional colour matching cost to match to the original artwork, this is when we print test strips to get as near match as possible. We can supply your files on disc or via ftp and at your specification, CMYK or RGB, depending on what you want to produce we can advise on the best format for you.
We can print in-house for limited edition print runs onto 310gsm, Hahnemuhle German Etching Paper, acid free (museum grade) or 285gsm, Hahnemuhle Fine art pearl, acid free (museum grade). If you are printing elsewhere we can produce match proofs so you can ask your printers to match colour and density.

How accurate are you able to colour match?
Our screens and machines are calibrated here to industry standard. We usually colour match to the original artwork on screen.
