    Scanner for artwork

    I've always scanned customers artwork on a small A4 scanner. it's a decent enough machine and Photoshop generally does a very good job of stitching together.

    I'm considering a larger option that would make the process easier.

    If anyone has any experience or opinions I'd appreciate it. Not looking to go crazy but as this market grows i can hopefully justify something better.

    graphtec do some wide format scanners but they are serious money.

    Canon do a range of 'multifunction printers' that include a wide format scanner. Work out cheaper and they have the advantage of coming with a reasonable quality wide format graphics printer, which could add another revenue stream. Still a lot of money.

    The Epson 7710/15/20 range comes with an A3 scanner, which might be the cheap option.

    Usually when you want to go bigger than A4, you get the studio lights and digital camera set up.

    Justin, I take it you find the actual stitching process to be tedious. Would dedicated stitching software not be better?

    No, I just use the Photomerge feature built into Photoshop which does a cracking job.
