Flatbed vs Economy Scans

Flatbed scans of prints produce superior results, at a cost. Flatbed scans require more handling and so cost more. When you consider whether to choose our economy scanning or flatbed scans consider the following:

  • Lets be honest most of us are not great photographers, the difference in quality doesn’t change the original subject, composition or relevance of the image.
  • Most people look at the subject of the photo they aren’t looking for minor flaws in the scan.
  • The most economical way to go is do an economy scan of your pics and the ones you really like get a flatbed scan afterwards.

Check out these 2 sample scans, one is a flatbed scan the other an economy scan, if you think the difference in the image is worth the difference in price (flatbed scans costs 840% more) then go for it!
