We scan and index documents using our state-of-the-art equipment that is at the forefront of today’s best scanning technology.
Bound Book Scanning – Worried about your rare and fragile books? We understand your concern. We have bound book scanners to handle delicate books and documents. With these scanners, books are opened to only 110° and do not need to be unbound! We return your books to you in the same condition as we receive them.
Microfilm/Microfiche Conversion – Our film/fiche scanners use superior camera technology to produce incredible speed, precision and uniform output. Scanned images are sharper with better edge definition because our scanners use fiber-optics as their light source, eliminating hot spots and uneven lighting.
Oversized Document Scanning – Merging the flexibility of flatbed scanners with the best of wide-format imaging technology, our oversized document scanner is the ideal scanner for capturing books, fragile originals, and other thick or delicate materials up to 18” x 24”. Unlimited scanning thickness means that our flatbed scanner can handle all of your scanning needs.

Delicate materials are our specialty
We have more than 40 years of experience in document conversion. We’ve been scanning since the early 1990s, and we understand the importance of preserving the quality of your materials.
To ensure the safety of your books and materials, we use Pelican Cases during travel to and from our office. We cover insurance both ways and make the process as seamless and easy as possible.
Let Us Help You!
Act today! The process of digitizing historical works is a very delicate and extensive process, so we are limited in the number of projects we can accept each year.
