We still offer a complete scanning service. Our A3 scanner scans up to 1600 dpi for the most accurate reproduction from flat artwork or transparencies and we also have a wide format scanner for flat artwork up to 910mm wide which is ideal for creating limited edition prints from flexible paintings or drawings.

All scans can be tailored for print or web use and we archive the files to keep a safe backup for you as well as giving you a CD or DVD of the work.

For originals wider than this, or where the original is not suitable for the wide format scanner we can take high resolution digital photographs of your work – this is particularly useful for large stretched canvas paintings to help minimise shadow pick-up from the canvas itself.
If you are unsure as to the best way to get your original scanned, we will be happy to advise you.

We can also offer multi-page scanning of bulk documents. We can then supply these scans as PDF or Word files giving you electronic media or editable files for e-mail or web use. This is also perfect for getting old reports into an editable format for revamping or just for backing up old documents that are taking up room in the office.scan_english

We recently scanned in hundreds of old examination papers for a local school. This was to allow the school greater flexibility in creating mock exams and sample questions whilst saving them money by reducing the amount of photocopying they needed to do whilst also ensuring they could move towards distance learning as they built up their own on-line resources.
