The key to photographing any kind of flat work is to insure that the light not reflect off the work directly at the camera. The light must be at an angle to prevent this. 45 degrees is usually enough.

Instead of strobes use any light with a high CRI (color rendering index). Incandescents work fine. I use two four foot fluorescent fixtures fitted with high CRI tubes. Tripod mounting the camera allows any length exposure so lights neednít be high power.
