 Personal reviews:

  •   Stuart at Mr Scan was exceptional in contacting me and ensuring my job was done to my requirements. I now believe him that "customer service is before profit"


  •  Stuart went above and beyond what I had expected in terms of labelling the freezer bags I used to put my slides in. I was very impressed and pleased. I will definitely be recommending him to everyone.


  •  Both my Dad and I were thrilled! With something so important, you want good service and outstanding quality - exactly what I got from Mr Scan.
