Scanning & Digital Imaging

Keep your business’s visual history and document archive safe for the future. Scan and digitize your print library, slides, documents and convert old movies and videos.  ... and have it all done at your location!
 

WHY DIGITIZE?

I have seen how fast older prints can start to fade, yellow or get brittle, and there is always a risk of loss or damage. Waiting is not a good option.

Scanning and digitizing your prints and documents is the only way to preserve these valuable and irreplaceable pieces of your history.

State of the art Kodak, Epson and Nikon scanners provide high quality scans in seconds. And because of their light weight and portability, scanning can even be done at your premises, so there is never any risk of loss or damage..

GREAT REASONS TO DIGITIZE SOON

•  Your visual legacy is a great way to promote your business, and an important way to remind customers of your loyalty and commitment to them.

•  Reducing clutter is a great way to open up space for more important things.

•  Digitizing your files creates a searchable and organized way to find important visual assets when you need them.

•  Less paper means a reduced fire hazard. Make your business safer.

 

Photo Organization

Your visual digital assets can be one of the most valuable parts of your business, but an unorganized catalog can be a recipe for disaster.

  • Loss, misplacement or damage of files

  • Inability to find or search for needed files

  • Catastrophic drive crash with no back-up plan

All of these can lead to the loss of prospective clients, ineffective marketing or a slow down of important work projects. Time is money!

There are solutions available, but the longer you wait to implement an effective workflow and back-up system, the greater the risk and the more difficult the chance for restoration.

It’s been very exciting to me that, after all the organizing and scanning that Peter did, I can easily go back in time over 50 plus years and find the perfect photo when I need it. A happy repeat customer!

Let me help you organize your digital assets and set up an efficient workflow and management system, as well as advising you on the best back-up and storage options.

Every business’s situation is unique, and a conversation discussing that situation is essential. Digital solutions are best formulated when clear goals and objectives are considered. If you don’t know where you are going, you won’t know how to get there.

Peter was great! He offered a competitive price, and was very communicative and easy to work with. We found him very personable, and he worked quickly to get our photos scanned for the wedding. A real professional, highly recommended!!!
