COVID-19 operations notes:
This is going to be an evolving situation (no pun intended) as I discover what works and what doesn't in accommodating the safe practices for operating in the COVID-19 era. My priority is to provide the kind of detailed and accurate print service you've come to expect from Evolv while making sure the workspace and delivered product is safe/virus-free. I take your health as seriously as I do your business, if not moreso. This has required me to make a number of adaptations to the way I'm operating the studio. Please check back here frequently for updates as our social situation develops and new processes get refined - or follow Evolv on Facebook to get the up-to-the-minute news on studio happenings.
Current modified studio operations include:
Combined these practices present some obstacles and delays, but I remain committed to delivering the finest, museum-grade giclee work possible for you. Thanks for your patience.
museum quality giclee printing
Evolv offers reproduction services for original paintings. This is the process of digitizing a physical 2D piece for printing. The work is scanned or shot to produce a hi-res digital image and the result is meticulously color adjusted against the original work. All proofing and color adjustment time is built into the price and the work is not complete until you're happy with the results.
The pricing schedule for art reproduction is below. Pricing is based on the dimension of the work's longest side. Prices do not include finished prints (see printmaking). All print files are kept in our archive for easy re-ordering. In addition you'll receive an archival DVD with the finished files.
Evolv can print giclees on fine art papers, artists canvas, or vinyl. Regardless of the substrate used all prints are priced at $18/ sq. ft. If you order 10 or more of the same print in a given order, those prints will receive a 10% discount. Proofing is free for all in-studio clients. If a print requires more than 15 minutes of time for color and quality adjustment, digital manipulation fees may apply, charged at $25/15min. The minimum print charge is $10.08 (8"x10"price).
Prints are custom cut to your exact size needs from roll stock. Our wide format printer can produce images up to 44" x 90". All inks and papers are archival.
Here are some sample prices based on common print sizes:
Evolv offers flatbed scanning for film (negative and positive) and physical media. Scans are $10 each and created to your specified resolution. If your original is larger than the 8.5"x11" scanner bed, a digital stitch may be required ($5 per stitch).
Results are delivered free to your portable USB or hard drive. They can be burned to aa archival DVD for a $5 fee. Scan results are not kept on file after the order has been picked up.
If the scans require any clean up or color correction, that's available at the studio graphics rate of $25/ 15 min.
Knowing how to use Photoshop for managing your images and prints has become an increasingly vital tool for artists. It's an intimidatingly vast program, but in practice most people only need to understand a subset of its abilities - just enough to get their work done.
Evolv offers individualized Photoshop training tailored to what you need to do with the application. In-studio training is available at $25/ 15 min. so you can indulge as much or as little as you want. Call to set up a time and review the scope of what you'd like to learn.
