State-of-the-Art Printing, Design & Production Services
Parsons Fine Art Services' Custom Archival Fine Art Printing conforms to archival standards consistent with collectible fine art. All materials & substrates used in our Custom Archival Fine Art Printing process are of archival quality and produced by reputable manufacturers. We helped develop many of the products now on the market.
Exclusive Heritage Giclee® Printmaking
We were the first giclee printmaking atelier in the country to produce all giclees exclusively with a pigment-based archival ink system. Using our experience with archival products, our process combines the widest color range with the longest estimated life expectancy in the industry, hence the word "Heritage" in our Giclee logo.
Wide-format Fine Art Digital Capture
Preferred by Museums, the TTI Digital Reprographics Workstation with Phase One's FX+ scanning back was the system of choice by U.S Library of Congress to produce their archives. Staples Fine Art owns one of the few of these systems installed in the United States.

Scanning Original Art up to 64" x 44"
In order to produce a stunning reproduction, you must start with a superior scan of the original. While film scans can often provide good results, there is no substitute for a digital print produced directly from the original. Our TTI digital scanning camera, designed especially with digital fine art and photographic reproduction in mind, is the most advanced digital capture system in the world. With scanning resolutions up to an amazing 10,500 x 12,600 pixels, the equipment consists of a totally integrated system of state-of-the- art illumination, electronics, optics, precision electro-mechanical drives, and specialized ICC based software.
