Digital Solutions

In the heart of Boston since 1975, we provide digital imaging services to artists, photographers, designers, museums and libraries.

 

Our Services

We specialize in large and small photographic image capture, high-resolution giclée printing, book scanning, and custom matting and framing.

Photographic Image Capture

Using a multitude of digital scanning platforms we are able to customize our digital image capture process to ensure the highest quality scans at the most cost efficient pricing. From over sized paintings, to slides, books and photos our scans are perfect for archiving and reproduction purposes.

Film Scanning

Do you have old film, but you don’t know where to get high-resolution digital files? We can scan them for you! We can also make slideshows and custom prints from any medium or hi-res digital files.

Book Scanning

We digitize books using high resolution Canon cameras and a next generation book scanning system.

Custom Matting and Framing

With thousands of frames and mats to choose from, we are able to custom frame your originals and reproductions. Using all acid free archival frames, mats and UV protective glass and plexiglass, we are able to provide start to finish services for all your framing needs.

High-Resolution Giclée Printing

Boston Photo Imaging has produced high quality photographic prints since 1990. Originally a full service photo lab, BPI originally produced photographic "C prints" using traditional darkroom methods. We now use totally digital methods to produce the highest quality inkjet prints.

Illustrators, architects, painters, photographers, and digital artists come to us for their digital printing needs. We print on a variety of substrates such as photographic paper, fine art paper, canvas and adhesive satin cloth.

Let us help you stand out in the crowd. Experiment with us. We have a special place in our hearts for the artists because we are artists too. We have worked in the greater Boston area for many years, allowing us to develop relationships with the local artists and businesses. Custom matting and framing is available to add a unique look to your images.
