What is the best scanner for artwork?

The Scanner Shop will take you through the process of finding a scanner for drawings, paintings and various art forms. We’ll tell you exactly what artists should look for and how each of our top five picks could make your life easier. So how do you choose the right model for your needs?

Bit Depth 

The bit depth of a scanner determines the number of colours that can be captured. A scanner with a higher bit depth can capture more colours and produce more accurate artwork reproductions.

Resolution

The resolution of a scanner is measured in dots per inch (DPI). A higher DPI means a scanner can capture more details and produce sharper images. For artwork, we recommend a minimum resolution of 300 DPI.

Price

Scanners vary in price depending on their features and capabilities. Artists should consider their budget when choosing a scanner, but also remember that a higher-priced scanner may produce better results.

Turn your creativity into premium prints or duplicates with The Scanner Shop. Our scanners are designed for artists, ensuring accurate colour reproduction and fine details. Invest in a photo scanner that takes your artwork to the next level.
