You could contact them. They accept artwork from all over the US. I'm sure the originals could be shipped to them.

>> Standard Image Capture Service includes:
>> • Consultation With the Artist - To determine the artist's intent and requirements for the image capture we meet with the artist at the beginning of each job.
>> • Image Capture in our studio - Capture parameters, especially lighting, are customized for each job based on the artist's requirements and the character of the original art. For example: we can emphasize or de-emphasize the texture of brushstrokes in an oil painting by simple changes in the geometry of the lighting. Each job is customized as part of our standard service.
>> • File Optimization - Fine tuning of the color correction and contrast of the camera file to match the original artwork.
>> • Files Burned to CD - The customer is provided with a CD containing the color corrected and color managed 300MB or 500MB image capture tif file. Also on the CD is a 500 pixel wide jpg file of the image capture for web use or cataloging purposes.
>> Our Standard Image Capture Service is for original flat artwork up to 45X60 inches maximum photographed in our studio. Artwork with metallic paints, metal foils, or other highly reflective surfaces may require special techniques that might incur additional cost. Any additional cost will be identified and quoted before the work is performed.
>> Artwork larger than 45X60 inches can be accommodated and will be quoted on a custom basis. Work that requires setup and image capture on location at the artist's studio, gallery or museum will be quoted on a custom basis.
>> Hope this helps.

>>> What does it cost you? Out here in San Francisco the going rate I've found that I believe must be digital capture is $75 for a 100 MB file and as much as $275 for a 500 MB file. Per image, of course. The 30 MB file I get from the other guy - granted, it's a JPEG (his camera doesn't give him anything else) - is $12. Huge difference in cost.
