Document Scanning Boston

Plans and Maps, any length by 42" Wide!

C, D, and E size plans take up valuable floor space in any facility, whether rolled, hanging, or in flat files. Our experienced scanning team can ensure scanned images that are as good as, or better than the original paper, mylar, sepia, linen, vellum, blueprint, or blueline. Let us scan your large format maps, plans, and drawings so you can quickly access what you need, at any time.

We take the time to learn your needs, study how your documents are stored and currently accessed. Our scanning process includes removing staples, naming files accordingly, using protective sleeves if scanning delicate originals, and placing all scanned pages back in their original order and location.
