Taking a fine photo or scan is only the beginning of the process in making a faithful and gorgeous giclee print. The camera lens and human eye view paint applications differently. At Evolv we take the time to work with you to create a print that matches what you and your buyers see. Our reproduction process includes all the adjustment time and proofing needed to create color accurate prints.

Owned and operated by Rob Caswell, Evolv maintains all the client files from Sky Lake Studios, so Sky Lake customers can easily reorder prints of any work on file.

COVID-19 operations notes:
updated: 26 May, 2020

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:

  • My production hours remain 10am-5pm M-F, but my physical in-studio hours may be irregular. I'm always available via email (see address above) or you can text me at 413-270-4562. You can also leave messages on the studio phone line, though I probably won't get them until I'm back in the studio. Hours (pickup) by appointment is still available.

  • The studio is currently open for curbside pickup service. That means I'll run work out to you in the parking lot, but clients are not allowed in-studio at this point. If you want to pay with credit card, you can give me the number over the phone and I can just run out your invoice and receipt with the finished print. If you want to pay by check, I can let you know the total in advance so that you can have it written out. Currently either is preferred over physical currency, but obviously that's still an option too.

  • Proof reviews have now been limited to a single pass. You can either let me know in the parking whether the proof looks good or needs tweaks, or you can take the proof home and then return it with Post-Its that instruct me about the needed tweaks.

  • For the time being I'm unable to do close, interactive on-screen adjustments with clients at my computer. The proof guidelines above apply.

  • Photoshop trainings are suspended for the time being as they require close physical proximity.

  • Please be mutually respectful and wear a mask when picking up work. Let's make sure we keep each other healthy.

  • Files may be send via the Internet (WeTransfer.com's free service is recommended for files larger than 20 MB) or handed off on a USB drive. Please clean any USB device before handing off it off to me. I will do the same on returning it to you.

  • Current studies show that the SARS2-CoV-2 virus (the one that causes COVID-19) lasts about 24 hours on paper surfaces. I am applying decontamination practices coming in and going out. So if you drop off paper materials to be worked with, I will wait 24 hours before touching them for work. And on finishing work, I will wait 24 hours before releasing it for delivery - and will do so with freshly sterilized hands and mask to maintain safety. Please make sure to try and account for this delay in your own work timeline.

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.

art reproduction

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.

up to 11" $75
up to 24" $125
up to 30" $150
up to 36" $200
up to 48" $250
up to 54" $300

printmaking

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:

8x10 $10.08
11x14 $19.26
16x20 $39.96
20x24 $59.94
24x36 $108.00

flatbed scanning

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.

photoshop training
(temporarily suspespened)

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.
