Cruse Scanner

Vongsouvan Fine Arts’ Cruse Scanner was specifically built for capturing fine art. The exceptional quality of the Cruse is inherent with the German-engineering of the linear CCD and strictly controlled lighting. Cruse Scanners have been chosen for some of the world’s finest art and archival institutions such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, NASA, the Smithsonian and national archives around the world.

Benefits of Cruse Scanning

  • scanning of artwork that has a depth up to 4”
  • special light modes to accurately capture the surface texture, color and subtle nuances of original artwork

File Delivery

Each artwork scan will result in delivery of 3 files:

  • full size TIF file
  • 20 MB TIF file for promotional printing use (if full size file is more than 20 MB)
  • 1 MB jpeg file for web or email use

Color corrections are minimal and based on an overall visual match of the art to our computer screen. Digital files of high-resolution scans are delivered on a disc or on a customer’s portable hard drive or flash/usb drive.

Retouching or adjustments of images, such as for artwork edges that have been damaged, can be retouched digitally for a fee. See Digital Editing Services.
