Re: QSL Card Scanning Solution



They make double ply plastic sheets, that are attached at the top, for odd
size or delicate scanning operations...any office products store might have
them...

If you want to test the concept, you can try to tape 2 plastic sheets
together at the top and place the card inside, just don't use it many times,
the owner of the scanner won't be impressed you are running "scotch tape"
through their very expensive, double side scanner!  ;-)
