Preserving the Past, One Page at a Time: Introducing ADS Archive + Document Scanning's Book Scanning Service

Trust ADS to scan your books

ADS Archive + Document Scanning has recently launched a book scanning service that helps in digitizing books, including historic ones, without causing any damage to them.

Our team of professionals use state-of-the-art technology to provide scans that are both reliable and precise. We are aware of the importance of document scanning in business operations, and for that reason, we take great care in guaranteeing the safety and security of all your documents throughout the entire process.

We can cater to your needs, whether you require scanning for a few documents or thousands of files. We offer flexible pricing options that can suit your budget, making it simple to find the right solution for you.

Old books that you may want to bring in for our book scanning service

Archive + Document Scanning can scan and digitise archived and historic books without the need to take the books apart.

The most cost effective method of scanning books is to remove the spine of the book, and then scanning the pages on a duplex scanner. If removing the spine is not an option, then we will use one of our book scanners specially designed to scan the open pages of a book.

The scanner effectively acts like a camera and takes a photo of each page. It even has software to remove the curvature of the page. This means that you get perfectly scanned images without damaging the book in anyway.

This scanning process is ideal for rare and historic books and magazines.
