Book Scanning and Digitizing Services

We offer book scanning and digitizing services utilizing an archival scanner which allows clear imaging deep into the inner margin without needing to fully open the book. Pages can be digitally scanned in black and white or in color and saved as images or a .pdf file. This is also a great way to make new copies of old books. A scanned copy of an old genealogy book can, for example, easily be printed and bound for family members. Inquire for pricing.

Our scanning software is also useful for creating missing plates, title pages, endsheets, etc. The results can be output on period paper and then toned or aged to match the rest of the project.
