One size fits all is a myth. Life exists beyond letter and legal. Course the paper pushers down the block beg to differ with their singular belief that the sun, moon, and stars revolve around them. Time to prove them wrong with the next stop on the whirlwind Micro Com Vancouver tour – Large Format. Please secure your table trays, stow your carry-on, and put your seat in an upright position. We’re cleared for takeoff.
With large format, we’re talking BIG. Not Tom Hanks, but more life size, signed Andre the Giant poster big. Anybody want a peanut?
Anything that measures in excess of 11×17 (inches) officially classifies, and wins a special trip. No challenge too big. We scan Engineering plans, building schematics, rollercoaster designs, “Just hang in there” motivational kitten posters, or Happy Birthday balloon banners.
During the day to day, our large format technicians battle documents often taller than themselves. That’s saying something considering the rookie technician rivals Padalecki proportions. But Moose and Squirrel would be out of their element waging this war without the years of experience our large format scanning department boasts.
So what happens when regular old document scanning meets large format? It’s as simple as a game of iSpy on the prairies. Large format is handed off and scanned separately. (Batteries not included.) What is included is proper indexing. Preppers leave little markers for ease of navigation, and images are inserted into their rightful place in the Dewey Decimal system – or which ever, possibly more logical, form of organization used.
Micro Com can handle all your scanning needs with the wide array of scanners and tools at their disposal. We’re not going to need a bigger boat. Documents are primped and pampered. More importantly, protected.
Specially made acetate sleeves act as a protective forcefield that the rebel forces on Endor can’t destroy. Delicate materials are slipped in and sealed to safeguard against damage when fed through the capture path. And throughout MCS’s long history of document imaging, the team has tackled a few difficult and rare finds. Ancient Chinese scrolls and beautiful watercolours, authentic drafting linens from original settlements, and perhaps a treasure map or two that may lead to Atlantis or uncover Camelot. But Captain Jack Sparrow is suspiciously silent on the location with his compass that doesn’t point North. And Micro Com hereby solemnly swears not to upload Moloch the Defiler into the cloud when scanning ancient texts and renderings.
This concludes this leg of the tour. Please remove your headphones in preparation for landing. Hope you enjoyed the brief introduction to the vast world of large format scanning and hope you fly with us again.
