How to Avoid Destructive Book Scanning
If you’re in the market for book scanning service, you probably have the same fear as everyone else who is looking for a company for the first time.
You’re worried that the company doing the book scanning will damage your book.
To be fair, some people don’t care. It’s common practice to remove the spine of the book so the pages are easier to access and, thus, scan.
That being said, if you have a rare book or simply don’t want this to happen to your text, you need to know how to avoid destructive book scanning company.
Be Clear About Your Needs
The first thing you have to do is make sure that any company you’re considering understands that you do not want any form of destructive book scanning practices. These companies should be asking you about this anyway, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Start with an Inconsequential Job
Although it means increasing your investment a bit, we recommend you begin your relationship with a new company by giving them an inconsequential job. Provide them with a text you don’t care about and ask for a small amount of pages to be scanned.
This will show you what kind of work you can expect from them. If the book comes back damaged, you know that this company isn’t worth your money and you didn’t have to suffer a major loss.
Pay for Quality
Speaking of money, understand that you’re going to get what you pay for. When it comes to book scanning, it’s worth looking into what a little extra can do.
For example, some companies will actually pick up your text so you don’t have to risk any damage that could occur if you tried sending it in yourself.
As you can see, avoiding destructive book scanning doesn’t need to be a Herculean effort. Just follow these three steps and you should be fine.

I wanted to create electronic copies of 25 old high school yearbooks. Between my brothers and sisters, we had hard copies of yearbooks covering the years 1946 – 1970 (from when my oldest brother started kindergarten to when my youngest brother graduated from high school). Electronic copies (PDF) allows for easy distribution among family and friends and long-term preservation of the content. eR...

eRecordsUSA, yearbook scanning service is great. Many of my classmates either had not purchased their Senior yearbook or had lost it. I was able to reproduce it on CD for my 40 year High School reunion. All that received a copy were very thrilled and so grateful. I do recommend eRecordsUsa and their yearbook scanning service.
The digitizing of sixty-four years of back issues of our journal Military Collector & Historian by eRecords was superbly done and exceeded our expectations. I recommend them highly.

Our company had about 5,000 pages of historical sales records that existed only in hard copy. We need to have these records scanned and imported into excel where they could be filtered, sorted, and subtotaled. eRecordsUsa did this for us in a fast, economical, accurate, and professional manner. I highly recommend them.

I am a happy repeat customer for over 3 years now! eRecordsUSA scanned all my course readers so I could go to class with my ipad instead of a heavy backpack full of paper. Very happy to have found them! Fast and reasonable turnaround time. With OCR, so all my documents are searchable. Thank you, eRecordsUSA!
