Scanning which Drawings ?

We can scan drawings which were originally created on paper, Mylar, onion skin and even on linen. Drawings are typically scanned scanned to Tiff, PDF or JPEG formats.

Drawing Scanning Process

Drawings are picked up at your location, or, you can mail them to our processing location.

We will prepare the drawings for scanning- which based on the condition of drawing can be only flattening the drawing, or could be as elaborate as repairing any torn drawings, or placing a fragile drawing in a clear laminate sleeve before scanning.

Drawings very often require optimization of scanner settings to achieve the best quality of scan images. This is very often driven by the condition of drawing, whether it is a blue line, whether it is on paper or Mylar or onion skin paper.

After scanning  the meta data index is created which allows for ease of search and retrieval of the scan image of the drawing.
