Scanning & Printing Of
Marietta Dantonio-Fryer's Artwork
The Scanning Process
To insure the highest quality prints possible of Marietta's artwork, we searched for and found the best imaging company utilizing the latest technology on the market.
Image scanning is accomplished using the Cruse CS265ST, the premier fine art flatbed scanner coupled with a complex computer software system and highly professional experts in image reproduction.
That combination creates a level of quality not often found in digital image reproduction. Clarity, depth and even texture is brought out so well that it difficult to tell the print from the original image. The Cruse scanner and the computer software algorithm software combine to virtually eliminate human errors while maximizing image focus and sharpness.
The Cruse CS265ST can single-pass scan images up to 60" x 90" and creates image files
of up to 2 gigabytes.

From The Scanner To The Printer
No matter how good the scanned artwork may be, it takes a high quality printer to put the work onto canvas or paper. That's why Epson Fine Art Giclee printers are used after the images come out from the Cruse scanner.
Designed to meet the criteria of artists and art collectors, these printers spray millions of droplets of ink per second onto fine art canvas or coated paper.
The finished giclee image is made up of close to 20 billion dots of ink. And not just any ink - only saturated, water-based archival inks capable of producing a combination of 12 chromatic changes and more than 3 million colors are used.
Marietta's art is printed Giclee on either fine art paper or fine art canvas producing an end result that is the highest quality available. Fine art canvas prints are treated just like the originals being stretched over poplar hardwood frames.
