Books and Documents
Book scanning is our forte. Using a professional-grade overhead scanner, we can scan books and documents up to 11.7 inches by 16.5 inches and 3 inches in thickness in JPEG, with the ability to convert to PDF, editable Word and TIFF. We can prepare scanned files with naming specifications for grant projects as well as for printing and publishing.
Photos, slides and negatives
Slides and negatives in 35mm, 126mm and 110mm. Photographs can be scanned to JPEG and color corrected and restored, as requested. Finished products are provided to customers on flash drives or, for larger projects, external hard drives. For individual customers who have family who wish their own copies we will transfer copies for you when you order additional flash drives.
No need to remove photos from albums ancestors so lovingly created. We can scan the photos intact and separate them into individual digital images. If names accompany the images, we can include the information in the metadata for each image.
We offer photo restoration on a case by case basis. Minor color correction is included in our scanning services, but if a favorite image has moderate to severe fading or yellowing, tears, cracks, specks, marks and other forms of damage, we can carefully restore it to nearly original condition. We also offer colorization of black and white photos.
We are located in Shelby, Richland County, Ohio, and primarily serve Richland County and surrounding counties. We will consider traveling to other areas in Ohio depending on the scope of the project.
