"Italian Nude" by Catherine Mayell
An artist’s mother brought a large, magnificent 3.5’x 4’ nude artwork in a glass-protected frame for scanning. Having sold the artwork years earlier as an art student, her daughter had no prints of "The Italian Nude." Her mother had tried to buy the original back from the owner, but she would not part with it at even quadruple the original price.
Filled with sorrow at the loss, the artist’s mother convinced the owner to allow her to borrow "The Italian Nude" for digital capture. We were the only company that she could find that could scan the original without removing the artwork from the frame.
We captured a detailed scan of the artwork preserving the subtle beiges and skin tones without having to remove the artwork from the frame. We color balanced and printed a Giclee that matched the original so well that the artist herself could not tell the difference between the original and the print! Artist Catherine Mayell said, "It was like having the original back in my possession."

Our fine art printing process uses pigment based inks. Pigment printing processes have been utilized since the middle of the 19th century. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing. Pigment inks excel in permanence. A dye is molecularly soluble in its vehicle, but pigment is not. Pigment particles tend to be large enough to embed into the receiving substrate making them water-resistant. The particle nature of pigment inks ensures their archival superiority. A particle of pigment is less susceptible to destructive environmental elements than a dye molecule.
