Large Format Scanning is the ideal solution for scanning Blueprints, Newspapers, Architectural Drawings, Large Photos, Posters and for digitizing large documents etc.

Scanning blueprints, architectural drawings, and other large format documents offers numerous benefits and is increasingly important in today's digital age. Here are some key reasons why it is crucial to embrace large format scanning and digitization for these types of documents:

Preservation and Protection: Large format documents, such as blueprints and architectural drawings, are often delicate and susceptible to damage or degradation over time. By scanning and digitizing these large documents, you can safeguard their content from physical wear, tear, or loss due to unforeseen events like natural disasters or accidents. Digital files can be stored securely and backed up, ensuring their long-term preservation.

Enhanced Accessibility and Collaboration: Digital versions of large format documents enable easy and immediate access to their content from any location. Instead of physically retrieving and transporting bulky drawings or blueprints, stakeholders can conveniently view, share, and collaborate on these files remotely. This fosters seamless communication, accelerates decision-making processes, and promotes efficient collaboration among team members, architects, engineers, and clients.

Efficient Document Management: Scanning and digitization streamline document management processes by eliminating the need for manual sorting, filing, and searching through physical archives. With digital files, you can quickly search for specific information, utilize metadata for organization, and implement indexing or tagging systems. This saves significant time and effort, leading to improved productivity and workflow efficiency.

Space Optimization: Traditional storage of large format documents can occupy substantial physical space, making it costly and challenging to manage extensive collections. By scanning these large documents, you can free up valuable real estate and repurpose it for other productive uses. Digital files can be stored on secure servers or in the cloud, reducing the need for physical storage while maximizing space utilization.

Easy Reproduction and Distribution: Digitized large format documents can be easily reproduced and shared with stakeholders. Whether it's making additional copies for multiple parties or distributing files electronically, the process becomes quick and hassle-free. This facilitates effective communication, reduces printing costs, and ensures that all relevant parties have access to the same accurate information.

Scanning large documents such as blueprints, architectural drawings, and other large format documents offers convenience, accessibility, protection, and efficiency in document management, collaboration, and archival processes. Embracing large document scanning and digitization is a strategic move towards enhancing productivity, accuracy, and the seamless flow of information in various industries and professions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is DPI and what tier should I use?

  • DPI is used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch in a digital print and the printing resolution of a hard copy print In printing. DPI (dots per inch) refers to the output resolution of a printer or imagesetter, and PPI (pixels per inch) refers to the input resolution of a photograph or image. DPI refers to the physical dot density of an image when it is reproduced as a real physical entity, for example printed onto paper. A digitally stored image has no inherent physical dimensions, measured in inches or centimetres. Some digital file formats record a DPI value, or more commonly a PPI (pixels per inch) value, which is to be used when printing the image. This number lets the printer or software know the intended size of the image, or in the case of scanned images, the size of the original scanned object.
  • PRINT PHOTOS only contain 300dpi of information regardless of the size of the photo. We only scan print photos at 600dpi to ensure that the digital image will always fill the screen when being viewed regardless of the device.
  • 35MM NEGATIVES & SLIDES can contain upto 3600dpi of information. Our minimum scan for these formats is 1200dpi which provides for both a fully scalable digital image but a high-resolution print upto 8x10. For maximum benefit of information (ie., photo editing, large format printing, distribution) we recommend scanning at 3600dpi.
What is the difference between a TIFF and a JPEG file?

  • TIFF will enable you to store richer, more detailed images. It’s good practice to save your original (or source) photos as TIFF files. JPEGs, meanwhile, might be a better choice for exporting your finished edits because they’re easier to share and print.
  • JPEG is the industry standard for digital image storage. As a raster image file, a JPEG stores compressed picture data such as colour in a series of pixels. JPEG, or Joint Photographic Experts Group, is recognizable from the .jpg or .jpeg file extension.
  • TIFF files store much more image data than their JPEG counterparts. This makes them a favourite with photographers due to their stunning image quality. However, the higher resolution requires much larger file sizes — meaning they can be awkward to use and more difficult to store. Also known as Tag Image File Format, these large data files have the extension .tiff.
How is it organized?

  • We receive image scanning projects in all shapes, sizes and organizational structures. We physically label ALL individual containers (ie., album, carousel, tray, envelope, ziplock) with your Order# (ie., 60561_A) holding the images for scanning.
  • We create a unique digital file folder reflecting each individual container.
  • The digital file associated with the physical image will be named the same (ie., 60561_Album A_image 1) and saved to it's associated file folder.
How long does it take?

  • Standard turnaround times for most retail client orders is 3 - 4 weeks.
  • Expedited (RUSH) service is available and generally provides for a 1 week turnaround; the RUSH fee a flat $25.00 for Orders under <$100.00 and for Orders over >$100.00 the fee is 25% the value of the Order (ie., $200.00 Order counts a $50.00 RUSH fee).
Where is the work done?

  • All transfer services are performed in-house at our 10,000 sq/ft production facility located in Etobicoke LOCATIONS
  • No 3rd parties, No risks.
