We create prints using archival pigment inks on various papers from which we feel offer good tonal range along with long lasting archival qualities. We stock several fine art papers along with papers that have more of a photographic print look & feel. If you want a specific paper, that we don’t stock, we can special-order it for your prints. All prints come with a 1-2 inch border added at no charge.
Film Scans
We don't scan film, transparencies or negatives, but we can recommend a service not far away that uses a Heidelberg Tango drum scanner, the best in the business, to do that and create digital files from which we can make prints.
Graphic Design, Retouching, Enhancement, Photo-Compositions
We offer graphic design services for you to make show announcement cards, marketing materials and books. We also offer help if the file you have needs work to bring it into line for printing, with file size or color issues. We have been using Adobe’s Photoshop™ software for over 15 years and offer extensive retouching and enhancement services. Removing and adding elements to an image, cleaning up facial skin, color & contrast balance, or bringing out more light and color from your images, are all services we offer.
Black & White Conversion
Do you love B/W? We can convert a color image to a B/W while maintaining great contrast. Take it further by adding various secondary color tones, such as sepia.

Background Deletion - Artists Please Note When Pen & Ink or Pencil drawings (or any artwork that has a surface that hasn't been drawn upon) are photo-copied, that paper background will assume the very slight tone of the surface that your work has been done upon and will appear on the new print unless we digitally delete that tone. If you want the new print paper surface to replace the original paper surface, without any tone, we recommend that you have us correct this.
