Miller Blueprint Expands with Kurabo Flatbed Scanner


Paradigm Imaging Group, Costa Mesa, Calif., a leading distributor of large-format scanners, printers, sign and display products and integrated software solutions, announces that it has helped Miller Blueprint, Austin, Texas, to expand its color scanning capabilities by installing a Kurabo large format flatbed scanner.

When asked why they decided to purchase the Kurabo, Steve Coyle, general manager of Miller Blueprint replied, “We have always focused on and listened to our customers. Our customers told us that a flatbed color scanner with true 24” x 36” inch capability was needed to scan their artwork and fragile legacy documents.”

The 24” x 36” flatbed scanner, developed by Kurabo 20 years ago for the Japanese market, can scan an ARCH-D size color document in 20 seconds or less in 400 dpi/high-speed mode. Resolution is adjustable by 1 dpi increments within the range from 50 dpi to 800 dpi.

Soon after the Kurabo scanner was installed, Miller Blueprint’s fine art scanning business began to increase. Said Steve, “Austin is a community blessed with a large number of talented local artists who have come to appreciate our ability to accurately scan and print their original artwork. As a result, we are fortunate enough to have to use the Kurabo scanner each and every day. It is one of the most important assets in our Graphics Department.” Miller Blueprint’s Fine Art Graphic Specialist, Carl Hayes, recently scanned and stitched a 46” x 62” aerial image of Austin, one of their more challenging and unique projects to date.
