Specialist Scanning 

Jack Simons Ltd provides high quality services in records management and enhancement. Use of sophisticated software continually developed in-house to help safeguard, improve and disseminate literary and graphic materials – particularly bound books. 
 
Our technology infrastructure allows us to scan even delicate books (or other bound documents such as parish records, historical journals, technical manuals and academic work) without damage. Powerful software corrects the image to allow for the page curvature providing results that can be used for on-demand printing. Other software ensures the best quality possible for reprint – often better than the original. 
 
Key to the success of Jack Simons Ltd’ services is the ability to produce highest quality digital files at lowest practical data sizes. This enables images to be seen at their best in media where low filesize means optimum speed of activity, such as the internet and ebooks. 
 
Highly competitive rates for bound book scanning depend on the materials presented for scanning – prices on application
