All companies start out with an idea and a plan, and ours isn’t any different. Over a few decade ago in 1988 our founder (photographer & engineer), was sitting at home and thinking about copy stands and ask himself why all of them working ‘Vertically’?
Working with a hi-post vertical copy stand is really hard to check the image through the camera’s viewfinder. Of course, producing the idea didn’t come easy special when there were a lot of huge companies that produce the vertical copy stands, but In 1991 with a new design, a little bit of funding and some sleepless nights to follow, finally start running the first Horizontal Copy Stand with the name of “Track Copying System” with magnetic board in 3 models and also, 2 models of “Floating Mag Board”

Finally, in June 2019 we at “copystand.com” start to produce 2 small models of copy stand ‘Mini 300’ , ‘Mini 500’ and later ‘Mini 100’ for the photographers, students and families to save digitally the vintage photos for making the history of their family (Family Tree) and more…
