Dome and Convex Photo Scanning
It used to be very popular to mount and frame prints behind domed glass. Sometimes photos were actually printed on a curved surface. Other times, the paper behind the glass has deformed over time and shaped itself against the curvature of the domed glass. These photos can be very fragile and difficult to work with, not to mention scan on a flat surface. We perform high resolution scans on these convex prints all of the time.
Dome and Convex Photo Scanning Pricing
In order to accurately scan a curved photo, we perform multiple high resolution scans, often between 10-20 individual scans. We then use those scans to digitally rebuild the image on a flat surface.
Small Convex Scan - $45/image
Large Convex Scan - $90/image
Most of the domed photos that we see come into the store have deteriorated over time and could benefit from our restoration services. After performing your high resolution scan, we will digitally restore the photograph to its original state. We can then print the image on one of our archival, fine art papers that mimics the look and feel of antique photos. If you'd like more information about what we can do with your domed photos, please Contact Us.
