TR Trades has a variety of large format scanners to accommodate your specific projects. Whether scanning large batches of old engineering drawings, maps, colour renderings or mounted boards, our qualified staff will be able to recommend the best process for your output requirements.

High Volume Services

TR Trades has onsite storage and high capacity scanning equipment to transform your archival rooms into sorted digital files. Allow us to take care of labelling and outputting your files into your preferred file format. Typically clients request single and/or multipage PDF’s labelled with the project name or number, scanned at 200-400dpi.

Our operators are trained to scan your drawings while preserving line optimization, continuously checking the files to ensure the line weights and shading remain true to the original. Our high quality equipment, supported by a consistent machine service schedule, yields exceptional results—capturing details from older drawings in poor, faded or torn condition. We handle your projects with care, regularly placing fragile drawings and precious originals in specialized pouches prior to scanning. Once the job is complete, our dispatch team will return the originals to your office or securely dispose of them on your behalf.

Photographs / Art Scanning

As any artist will testify, it is very difficult to find a printer that can reproduce your artwork as per the ‘original’. At TR Trades we understand that a large part of achieving your desired outcome is not only reliant on the equipment but also on the operator being fully trained in scanning different types of artwork. Unlike other document types, scanning and reproducing artwork takes years of experience, patience, and a precise awareness of colour and detail. Our qualified operators work closely with our fine art customers to achieve the desired results. If file manipulation or digital restoration is required, our operators are highly trained to use the most relevant technology to achieve the desired results.

  • Hand-drawn sketches
  • Paintings
  • Old photographs
  • Precious posters
  • Collages

“I cannot say enough about TR Trades. Their entire team is efficient and professional. We often need a quick turnaround for both our large and small scale printing projects and we have never once been disappointed. TR Trades continually provides us with creative and affordable solutions that meet our brand standards each and every time. We also know that when a delivery is dropped off at our office from TR Trades, the quality is going to be exceptional. Without hesitation, I'd recommend TR Trades.”
