Why Us ?
You will often see others advertising with higher prices than ours and rarely slightly lower prices, but do they offer the same level of quality than we at Mr Scan do?, try asking them what type of scanners they use, most will not tell you or inform you that they are using the cheap domestic range of scanner such as the Nikon or cannon scanners. Avoid these types of scanners at all cost, they offer low quality scans and may even damage your film. We only use quality professional equipment. You only want to get your films scanned once, get them done right in the first place !!
We are not just another faceless website company, we have a UK local rate telephone number on our website where you can talk to real people, you can discuss your requirements and we can talk you through every part of our service if required.
Our technicians are well qualified engineers with many years of experience in digital imagery and video with a passion for photography.
Mr Scan is not a company run from a back bedroom like many others, We have our own dedicated High-Tec studio located within the Oast House, Mead Lane Farnham.
Backup data of your images is stored on our 200TB RAID storage unit until you have received your order are completely happy with the result. In accordance with our terms and conditions regarding our delivery process.
We never share any customer details with anybody, all data and images are kept in house. Also you wont get junk email from us.
Mr Scan only use state of the art scanners to produce the perfect image, we do not use any of these DIY home scanners available in the back of newspapers or at your usual PC store, these DIY units offer very poor quality images in comparison and mostly with no or little dust removal technology.
Our previous contracts include photo archiving for many county councils, universities, celebrities, art galleries and doctors surgeries, scanning the entire stamp collection for Royal Mail, BBC, Marine life for the Scottish Government, Library and Archive Services for the Welsh Government and many more camera clubs and institutes
A quick word from our company founder and director – Stuart Knight
Anybody can scan but we’re experts of our field. We know what the scanning industry is all about. Please be aware of dodgy backstreet companies, you need to be able to fully trust the person or company that you are sending your life time of memories to.
Many people think it easy to buy a cheap domestic scanner, set up a basic website and expect to be able to run a successful digital scanning company, Mr Scan has worked for many years in this industry and has a glowing reputation with all our customers including large companies and high profile customers, if you are comparing us to other please fully check what the competition are offering, do they really have all the credentials that they boast to have on their website, are they really using professional equipment, how long have they been trading?
If you have any doubts over using Mr Scan simply ask, we will truthfully answer any questions you may have, we are an honest company and more into keeping a happy customer base than making a few extra pounds on the side. Trust is certainly the word to use when dealing with your lifetime of memories
Details of some of our Scanners
Professional dedicated scanners with the latest technology. We DO NOT use domestic home scanners that you see in the shops that many of our competitors use.
Some of our scanners are modified to adapt to our system and run a bespoke software setup that only us at Mr Scan use, we have designed it in house and nobody else uses it. This gives us a superior scan giving what photography expects have called the best quality scan possible.
We are upfront an honest about the scanners that we use we have nothing to hide, why not ask our competitors what scanners they are using, most will either refuse to let you know or tell you that they use the DIY home scanners for the likes of Nikon or Canon, these are low volume scanners built for the domestic market not the professional market. If a competitor of ours claim to use the domestic range of scanners then avoid at all costs these scanners can damage your precious films or slides, we know as we have tested most scanners them in the past to compare results.
