Digital Services

MV Labs DIGITAL offers both Drum and Flat Bed scanning of prints and negatives.

We work closely with artists and commercial clients to make sure that the vision of the image holds true.

Giclée (zhee-klay) Digital Pinting

Giclée printing is one of the few methods of printing that can rival the rich tone and archival qualities of the silver halide and gelatin printing process, or “silver printing”. Unlike in the past when the digital process was severely questioned by skeptics, many examples of Giclée printing are now found in places such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries.

MV Labs is equipped with the new Canon image PROGRAF® 8100. This 12-color pigment based printer is the 2nd generation of the only printers capable of output in true 16-bit. This allows for the smoothest possible gradations in tone and the finest Giclée prints available to date.

Scanning
Scanning is a process by which the image negative or positive is read by an optical lens or scanner and captured onto a digital file.


Archiving
Archiving is the process of making an exact match of the original image. This process is useful to backup prints that no longer have usable negatives and negatives which have become too old or damaged to print.


(300mb 16bit) – $250 “$150 every image in excess of 5″

Reproduction For Output in 8 bit:

Reproduction scans are optimized to be reproduced to your specified size. They can be printed digitally on inkjet, c-prints, or any other digital process.

8 x 10 – $25.00

11 x 14 – $40.00

16 x 20 – $80.00

20 x 24 – $125.00

24 x 30 – $200.00

30 x 40 – $300.00

Low resolution (ideal for web) $12.00 – per scan
This quality rating is good for digital presentation and web use.
Retouching – $90 per hour
Usually for commercially used images retouching is the process of eliminating blemishes, lines, and unsightly aspects of an image. Color correction for output is judged through fully calibrated monitors and white and black points are mathematically calculated with the 255 range of digital shading.

Restoration – $125 per hour
The process by which an image rebuilt via copying areas of similar texture and or introducing new textures to match the original. Restoration is a process that can be applied to any age print or negative. The process starts with a high resolution scan which is then restored in Photoshop. The file can be outputted on digital media but for authenticity, the file can be turned back into a negative and be printed traditionally. With the exception of positive film or “chrome” most negatives should be printed as they are desired and then have the print scanned. This preserves the image’s finer qualities.

Copy of files on CD – $15.00,  Copy of Files on DVD – $40.0

With the exception of positive film or “chrome” most negatives should be printed as they are desired and then having the print scanned.
