The Benefits of Transforming Large Format Drawings to Digital Images
Large Format Drawings to Digital Images in San Francisco Bay Area, California
Digital technology has radically changed the world in which we live. From the Internet to the proliferation of the smartphone, it’s changed how we communicate, shop, learn about local businesses and more. It’s also had an effect on the world of art and design. Digital art and illustration programs give designers, artists, architects and other professionals the means to create in a digital medium. But what about existing drawings, sketches and the like done in physical format? Actually, you can transform large format drawings to digital images with the right technology.
What Are Large-Format Drawings?
While sketch and design books are often compact enough to carry with you, there are times when a larger format is needed. From an artist’s canvas to a car designer’s whiteboard, large-format drawings can be found everywhere. The problem here is that these are hardcopy formats – they’re physical, and they’re very large. That means it’s almost impossible to share them with anyone without actually handing over the original drawing. There are other problems, too. For instance, changing or modifying the drawing requires erasing or drawing over part of the original design.
The Benefits of Transforming Large Format Drawings to Digital Images
Digital images have a lot of advantages over conventional, hardcopy drawings. For instance, they can be easily modified with software. They can be scaled up or down almost endlessly. They can be shared easily right through email or a cloud storage platform. They also occupy no physical space at all, and they’re not susceptible to damage, accidents and other problems.
By transforming large format drawings to digital images, you gain these benefits and more. Because it is a digital file, it can be reproduced as many times as you like, with just the click of your mouse. It also offers benefits to professionals. Imagine being able to send clients large-format drawings via email rather than overnighting physical copies.
Of course, it also offers benefits for many other instances. For example, let’s say a designer created a significant number of large sketches on paper. Those sketches could all be turned into digital files through an advanced scanning process and then stored and accessed online, or through a CD or DVD. This would allow the designs to be used for other needs, including sending them to production facilities, for concept work and more.
Another example would be creating a legacy for an artist. Sure, having physical sketches and designs is great, but they’re not protected for the long term. They can be easily damaged by everything from spilled coffee to fires. They’re also not accessible to anyone else. By transforming large-format drawings to digital images, you can create a legacy that will stand the test of time while being available to anyone with whom you’d like to share those images.

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.

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.
