Should I have my originals Scanned or Photographed?

This pretty much depends on the original in question. A scan will give the best quality and largest file, but not all originals lend themselves to scanning. 3D or pastel originals for example would have to be photographed, the last thing either an artist or the company producing the scan want is for any pastel from the original to offset on to the scanner bed. Larger originals would have to be scanned in sections and then stitched together in Photoshop, this is an involved and time consuming process, but it does produce some stunning results.

Each original piece will need to be treated as an individual and your chosen print partner will be best placed to offer advice on each piece that you need to have copied.
