Digital Studio Photography:
Northlight Editions uses a high resolution single and multi-shot digital camera back for capture of original art and photographs larger than 12”x17”. Digital capture of framed art is available. We recommend artwork to be unframed if possible.
Maximum artwork size for studio capture is 60" x 60" unframed. Framed artwork should be no larger than 30" x 40". Northlight Editions does not remove artwork from framing. This will need to be done by the client or a professional framer if needed.
Scanning - flat art and film:
Reflective flat art scanning and 8x10 film scans are done on a precision 12x17 flatbed scanner using specialized 16 bit driver software.
Transparency film scanning is done on several dedicated film scanners from 35mm, medium format and 4x5.
Black and White film scanning is available in all formats.
Color negative scanning is not offered at Northlight Editions.

File Prep and Test Printing:
All scans and digital photographic capture files created at Northlight Editions need file adjustment and test printing prior to final printing and is based on an estimate of time involved and complexity of the project. This service includes color matching, levels adjustment, spot cleaning and test printing.
Digital files directly from the client also require file prep and test printing according to project needs.
File prep charges are quoted at time of order with a $25. minimum per file. Average file prep charges from original artwork range from $45. to $60. Complex and large artwork file prep is quoted at time of order at a rate of $90./hr.
Digital Correction: (if requested)
Clients that request changes or corrections to their original art or digital files are charged based on an estimate of Photoshop time involved and complexity of work needed, quoted at time of order and billed at a rate of $90./hr.
Proofing is available as an additional professional service. Proofs are made on the same media as selected by the artist. Half size proof prints are also avaiable to save costs. Artist pays for all file prep, test printing and proof prints made and collaborates with Northlight Editions to create and approve a desired final product.
Final proof prints, or 'BAT's bon à tirer or "good to pull" prints, are signed by the artist and archived in dark storage at Northlight Editions for future print orders. All Proof prints and 'BAT's remain the property of Northlight Editions and are not for sale or distribution.
Special Rate Proofing Service:
A new special rate proofing service has been added that will include (1) 1/2 size proof with the initial file prep of new work at no extra charge. Additional file prep changes or adjustments and new proofs, if needed, will be billed at our regular rates. Artists will need to ask for this special proofing service before the giclée process is started.
This new proofing service should help artists who would like to proof their work with Northlight but who can not afford and do not wish to pay the regular full size BAT Proofing. Such artists also do not sell quantity reproductions on a regular basis.
Artists that do not request regular or special rate proofing at time of print order are subject to additional file prep and printing charges if any changes are requested after a 5 day period.
