Wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a scanner for these types of items.

Thanks

Difficult. The glossy surface is going to mess it up in a big way on any scanner, is my thought. Anyone tried it?

Tried it on an Epson Perfection 2450 - Glossy print, as in varnished magazine cover is OK. Laminated driver's license is so-so. CD in older jewel case is so-so. A Flash Memory card in plastic laminate has significant blown out hot spots.

Maybe a copy stand with a digital camera and very diffuse lighting?

Thanks for the info. I was really hoping to find a simple scanner to do this as the person who is scanning them needs something very easy to work with.

Anyone have any other scanners the would recommend?

Do you have a link to that model. All I'm finding is a printer with that model number.

Thanks
