How do I make prints?

Under our booking system you may select if you would like prints made from your scans.

Do I need to order all of the prints in the edition up front?

No, you can reply to the email that delivers your scans at a later date if you’d like to order prints in the future.

Can I make scans of framed artwork that is behind plexiglass?

Yes!  We can make scans of art that is behind glass.  There are no reflections, however at this time a thin shadow from the frame is cast on the left and right sides.  We have a couple of solutions that we are working on for you!

Can I scan items other than artwork?

Yes, within reason.  Artzip is best with 2-dimensional work, not 3-dimensional.  We expect you to get creative and show us what you come up with!

Can I buy a rail system for my personal use?

Contact us and we can discuss your needs.
