Large Format Scanning Using Flatbed Scanners
Using Flatbed Scanner
Scanning delicate, large, or wide format items presents unique challenges and many of these invaluable documents cannot be subjected to the typical feed-through scanning process because of their fragile nature or the unsuitable materials they’re crafted on. To protect these invaluable items, we use specialised flatbed scanning technology, paired with expert handling. Our team ensures the preservation of each document, capturing every detail in high resolution. Here are a few examples;
- Deed Packs: Safeguarding legal histories and property records.
- Fragile Large Format Drawings: Capturing intricate details with utmost care.
- Plans and Maps: Digitising geographical and architectural blueprints.
- Old Posters: Reviving classic designs and vintage advertisements.
- Large Photographs: Preserving moments in high-resolution clarity.
- Historical Records: Ensuring the past remains accessible for future generations.
- Antiquarian Material: Protecting rare and ancient manuscripts and prints.
- Photo Canvases and Frames: Scanning without compromise on original quality.
