The following are some examples of documents which can be saved by scanning and repairing a copy. In many cases, older documents will have faded. We can heighten the contrast and bring up information which has faded, and then save the digitized document for your archives. Your reprints will be on ARCHIVAL quality papers, rated to last 100+ years! Don't forget that copies of wills, health care directives, etc can be saved onto a cd for distribution to your family, lawyer, doctor - etc.
