Woodstock Graphics Studio is a small, highly specialized facility owned by photographer and graphic artist Richard Edelman. WGS is located in the Hudson Valley community of Saugerties, NY. Mr. Edelman combines a lifetime of working in the darkroom with an intimate knowledge of digital processes. Woodstock Graphics Studio specializes in providing digital services for artists, photographers and designers. These services include: retouching, scanning, archival printing and visual effects.

WGS produces museum quality, wide-format, digital prints. We use only pigmented inks, which are unsurpassed in longevity. They have a projected lifespan greatly exceeding other printing processes. In conjunction with 100% rag papers, the archival nature of our work is perfect for fine art prints and giclée editions. We run the latest Epson 11-Color printers; utilizing inks specially designed for fine art papers.

Black & White prints are perfectly neutral or can have a tone, as you prefer, with no "matamerism" or "duotoning". Our prints are second to none, regardless of cost.

Drum Scanning:
For negatives and transparencies. WGS uses the newest, most sophisticated scanners available for B&W and RGB scans. Our intent is to generate scans which retain the characteristics of the image and film emulsion to the highest degree possible. Our Imacon virtual drum scanners require no liquids, avoiding the potential dangers to your irreplaceable work inherent in conventional drum scanners.

Flatbed Scanning:
We scan all forms of two-dimensional artwork for giclées, using the extraordinary new Silverfast Artificial Intelligence software. Here our efforts are to work with the artist to create a set of archival prints, for giclée editions or final art, which are unsurpassed in fidelity.
