We’re more than just a company that scans documents. Not only do we scan in black and white or colour, we also perform large format scanning from any size original; from a 6×4 standard photo to an A0 poster or plan from a variety of file formats. For delicate originals, Hacketts have even developed a non-contact system to minimise the risk to your document. Copying and scanning of legal documents is a particular specialty.

Photographic Scanning

Memories are meant to be shared – why not keep a digital version of your precious images and family history so you can pass them on? We can scan your slides and photos as digital images onto CD or DVD. We scan at the highest possible resolution, so you can enlarge your photos into posters, canvases and collages without resolution problems. We also offer a bulk photo scanning service which is perfect for turning hundreds of old photos and slides lying in forgotten shoeboxes into digital copies.

To talk about our confidential scanning service with one of our advisors or to arrange a consultation, simply call your nearest Hacketts branch.

Scanning old documents

Building our own system where a suitable one does not exist elsewhere

One of our legal clients needed a copy of an oversized document held in a specialised library, whose policy was not to allow any documents out of the premises and not to subject them to any unusual handling.

Many deeds and old maps are too delicate to be put through a standard roller-fed scanning process, which can damage fragile documents, or those containing raised surfaces such as seals. This is a particular problem with documents larger than A3 size – too big for office flatbed glass scanners. Hacketts responded to this by developing a piece of equipment in house that scans the document without any direct contact on the original.

In the case of the specific example above, we dismantled our equipment, loaded it in a van and assembled it again on site at the library premises and were able to successfully scan the document under the supervision of the library staff.
