BOOK SCANNING PRICING

High Quality Scanning & Conversion to Adobe Acrobat PDF files

DESTRUCTIVE METHOD

If we have your permission to remove the spine of the book we use an electric hydraulic cutter that removes I/16″ of the spine with a clean cut. We can use this cutter for books that are up to 4″ high. We refer to this as the “destructive” method. It’s a very clean precise cut that allows us to feed each page through our scanners one page at a time. This will provide you with a perfect scanned PDF file. We use Adobe Page numbering to make sure you never receive a file that has missing pages.

The destructive method is most desirable when your main concern is obtaining a digital file, as opposed to keeping the book intact. If requested, we can return the cut pages to you.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE METHOD

If you have books that require our non destructive book scanning service we have scanners that will scan any type or size book. Our service will provide you with crisp clean bi-tonal, grayscale or color PDF files without damaging your books. In other words, we will scan your books to a high resolution PDF file and return it to you exactly the way it was sent to us.
