Mike’s tip of the week – reading a serial number

So you need to read a really small serial number and even with a magnifying glass you are having trouble. Well there are two ways to do it that will help to remove the strain from your eyes.

1 – (my favorite) – If you have a flat bed scanner put the product on the scanner and scan the area with the serial number.  Then it will be easy to read in either your scanning program or your photo editing program.

2 – (can be an issue and a paint his way) – Take a picture of the serial number and enlarge it in your editing program.  This can be more pain then it is worth but as a last resort may be helpful.
