Whether for exhibition, display, safe keeping, sale or gift, NZMS can take the high resolution digital scans and create vibrant and detailed prints using photographic paper through to Canvas and acid-free watervcolour stock. 

Our wide format Epson printer, software, inks and paper types are chosen with care to ensure quality prints which our customers can enjoy for many years.

NZMS uses high quality inks and paper stocks. Talk to us about what would be best for your project.

For examples of our work see the case studies below.

For Artists and Curators:

Critical colour matching available.  We can work through test strips with you to confirm the most accurate colour profile.  Colour strips and profiles can be stored at NZMS for use on any future prints of work.  We operate a fully calibrated "system" from the original through the scanner sensor, monitors, ambient light, viewing devices and even the walls... connecting across with IT8 colour targets.

For Online Collections

We also provide a print service for on-line digital heritage collections, and can manage the full administration of client orders for prints on your behalf. For example:

This can enable you to offer added value to your community with NZMS doing all the work.  You could also raise funds for future digitisation work by receiving royalties for prints sold.
