Photo Services

Photos, negatives, slides & transparency scanning

Carmel Studios offers Creative Services for all of your reprographics, image reproduction, restoration, editing, and print enlargement needs. Whether you have a box full of old photos that you'd like to have scanned and restored, or you have a binder full of old 35mm slides, large transparencies, colour or black and white negatives that you'd like digitized or printed we can handle it all!

Our digital reproduction expert, Carsten Arnold, has been scanning and printing images for, dare we say, decades! He started work in the prepress world of high end printing, then in the large drum scanning world of prepress trade shops for discerning clients before he started teaching colour theory and scanning at Vancouver Community College. If you need scanning services in Chilliwack or the Fraser Valley, he'll take care of it for you!

Photo Scanning

We utilize the best flatbed scanner in the industry to give you the finest photo scans available. Documents, photos, negatives, and transparencies can be scanned using the latest software and techniques to bring out every detail of the original. Photo sizes up to 8 1/2 x 14, transparencies up to 8 x 10, and all negatives can be accommodated. 

Photo Restoration

If your old photos need some tender loving care, let our Photoshop guru give them the attention they deserve. From a few scratches, folds, and dust spots, to complete replacement of missing pieces, stains, fingerprints, and water stains, we can bring them back to better than new condition. 

Photo Editing

Any photo print or digital file can be edited for colour correction, straightening, cropping, enlargement, object or person addition or removal, blemish removal, addition of text, blending, or just about anything you imagine! Call us to discuss your ideas. 

Custom Photo Printing

Our custom printing lab can print on paper or canvas up to 44 inches wide by any length. We offer a range of papers and canvas for all your photo enlargements, maps, graphics proofs, industrial drawings, indoor and window signs. 

Art Reproduction

The digital capture of your art is the most important step in the process of art reproduction. Your print can only be as good as the scan, we utilize specialty studio lighting techniques to remove all reflections to bring out every detail and accurate colour.
