See the difference!

The image on the left has been scanned with a low-end document scanner, similar to what a lot of companies purchase for their in-house scanning projects. You can see the image is blown-out and the text under the image is difficult to ready. The image on the right however, is crisp, more even in tone and clear. Each scanned image is viewed by a quality control technician to ensure proper image quality. If image quality is in question, the image is flagged for review/rescan. This ensures we have captured the best image possible without any flaws.
