With years of experience in the document management industry, we know all there is about large format scanning. We've helped hundreds of business transition to a more digital way of working by scanning their large format drawings into scalable PDF's.
We digitise maps, plans and drawings for businesses every day; however, we also have experience scanning custom wide and large format documents including:
It's not uncommon for large format drawings to be rolled rather than folded for storage and preservation. With our large format scanning solution, you can utilise office space for additional desks or even a new meeting/training room.
Due to their size, large format documents can be easily torn, creased and damaged. By scanning these records into electronic copies, you can rest assured that your documentation is safeguarded from unexpected damage, whether this is from spilling your coffee or misplacing the document entirely!
Digital large format documents can be protected behind password and data encryptions, ensuring your business-critical information is secure and confidential.
In efforts to continually improve our large format scanning service, we frequently invest in brand new scanning equipment. Our state-of-the-art scanners can detect and capture any written notations or amendments made to drawings, including faint pencil marks. This is extremely useful to architects and construction firms who may pencil small but critical changes to plans.
Our large format scanning technicians can also apply colour to your scanned images to emphasise any colour coding that exists on the drawing.
It’s not uncommon for historical large format documents to be on vellum leaf rather than standard paper. For these types of documents, we have a dedicated scanning team who take extra precautions to ensure the safety and integrity of the large format map, plan or drawing.
Wearing chemical-free gloves, we will take great care when scanning your documents and may complete post-scan enhancements to achieve the best quality image for you.
Our logistics team will arrange the collection of your large format documents from your office location, whether you're based in the UK or internationally. Specialist large format boxes can be provided.
We will take care of the manual preparation of your large format documents saving you time and resources. This may include removing staples and bindings.
Large format documents are scanned and exported to the format of your choice (PDF, JPEG etc). We will also name each PDF using the drawing code or any other reference required.
Electronic images can be returned via an encrypted USB, SFTP or uploaded onto FreeDocs for effective document management. Physical large format documents can be shredded, returned, or placed into storage.
Paper documents come in all shapes and sizes; however, maps, plans and drawings are typically printed on A3, A2, A1 or A0. Some drawings may be supersize, meaning 2A0, 4A0 or even larger!
