Book Scanning London
For over a decade we have been digitising and converting books, journals, manuals and magazines for writers, publishers, archivists, collectors, students and private individuals in London and across the UK.
What We Scan
- Bound books
- Unbound books
- Heritage books
We can scan all of the above to a wide range of formats from searchable PDFs and editable Microsoft Word to popular eBook formats such as Kindle, ePub and iBook.
Unbound Book Scanning
Unbound book scanning is our most common method. Before the scanning takes place, the spines of the books are sliced off making it easy to scan the pages in our high speed document scanner. By unbinding the pages, we can scan up to A0 in size.
- Quick scanning
- Cost effective
- Good quality
Bound Book Scanning
The bound book scanning method is used for books that need to remain intact throughout the entire scanning process such as for books that are delicate, rare, valuable, historic or just hold sentimental value for our clients. To keep the books intact, we use specialist overhead scanners and technology specially designed for books up to A2 size to remain intact.
- Special gloves approach
- Undamaged books
- Reduced lighting
