In the digital era, when more and more artifacts and documents have been digitized, works of art are no exception. The digitization of works of art is not to replace the original work, but mainly for research, backup and promotion purposes, without having to affect or damage the original piece. Today, VG-Lab would like to introduce the process of digitizing and republishing its paintings, hoping to share a little experience for friends.
The digitization process is the process of scanning or photographing an original art work. VG-Lab choose photography to digitize the works, because when taking pictures, we have absolute control over the color, light and sharpness of the work.
And most of all, the process of taking pictures minimizes the risk of damage to paintings, because when taking pictures, paintings do not have any direct impact on the surface, very safe when digitizing precious paintings.
If the above three standards are maintained, the paintings will be digitized accurately in color and achieve high sharpness. This will make it much easier to research or reproduce.
Reproduction of paintings is copy one painting to multiple editions, with strict standards from the similarity of materials, color accuracy and durability compared to the original.
When the digitization process is done, the re-printing of a painting actually consists of only the following steps: choosing a printer, printing material, printing size and number of editions.
VG-Lab offers variety options for papers and only the highest quality material selection in the world, from Hahnemuhle and ILFORD. In addition, with sophisticated printing techniques and specific instructions on printing materials for each customer, coming to VG-Lab, customers can rest assured that they will receive perfect prints.
In summary, in this article, VG-Lab has provided some basic criteria to achieve accuracy and sharpness in the process of digitizing and reprinting paintings. Hopefully, it can help you understand more about the standards of digitization and reprinting that are being implemented in the art world today. By doing so, the research and promotion of rare and precious paintings will be easier than before.
