    Search for A3+ oversized flatbed scanner 13" wide?

    Hi all,
    I have been told that some of you knowledgeable people may be able to help with some advice. I am in need of a scanner to scan LP covers which are 13x13" Does anyone know of a flatbed A3+ oversized scanner that will stretch to 13" wide? I'm finding it difficult to locate one here in the UK. I can't afford an A2 scanner. I already have a Mustek but it's only 11.7" wide.
    I hope someone can point me in the right direction at least, as I have googled myself silly all day.
    All the best & happy new 2012,
    Jay

    I think the Aztek plateu can do up to 14x18, however, its no longer a current product. There are a few used ones out there though, like here(I have no affiliation with them btw)

    towards the bottom of the listings on this page:

    Why not set up a copy stand and photograph the covers? I'd think that you could do this for well under the cost of a scanner...

    The Fuji 2750, 5000, c550 and Lanovia Quattro are 13x18 inches. They're not in production and little to no service. Very large and about 150 pounds. Very fine machines.
