What makes us different?

Many other book scanning companies simply run OCR technology over the images rather than taking the characters and images and importing them into a document that will eventually be properly formatted into an e-book. This leaves the customer with scanned images of their pages with selectable text. This may be fine for a pdf copy on a computer but if you want to read it in your e-reader device it can lead to extremely large file sizes that cause severe lagging when you try to load a book or turn pages. Many e-readers have file size limits on ebooks and larger books with lots of pages could be larger than the alloted file size as well.

All of our ebooks are properly formatted using the original formatting and converting to the output files you choose. To see how easy it is to get started just follow these easy steps below:

 1. Select and purchase your scanning and converison options.

Simply choose between Destructive Book Scanning, Bulk Destructive Book Scanning, Document Scanning, or Upload a Document. Select the number of pages in the book, and select the features you want and purchase it in the cart. If you're uploading a document or manuscript simply select the "Browse" button and select and upload your file.
