Any images that are going to be offset printed, particularly the high quality that these seem to be, would want to work from the native digital files, rather than an inkjet scan, no matter the quality, source of inks, etc. Offset printing requires CMYK separations. You know the old saying - garbage in, garbage out. Even the most beautiful of inkjet printed results will not equal a high res. Photoshop file for printing. Just my thoughts.
