Benefits of Newspaper Scanning Services
There are a number of advantages that this service provides, starting with its relatively low cost and fast turnaround time for placing documents on a CD or DVD format.
Space: When you consider that a single CD holds up to 15,000 images which would normally fill a 4-drawer filing cabinet, you can see just how much room can be created with a scanning service.
Preservation: Thanks to scanning technology, documents will be saved for hundreds of years with no deterioration.
Time: Imagine how long it would take to find a single document among thousands, even if it was properly stored and labeled correctly. Now, finding that document on a CD takes mere seconds simply by typing in and bringing up the file. Searching for information has never been easier.
Multiple Accesses: Files on computers can be copies and recopied instantly if needed and even transferred online so that the files can be readily accessed. For documents that need to be accessed regularly, this is the perfect way to keep them safe, yet have them available when needed almost instantly.

DO YOU HAVE TO SCAN THE WHOLE NEWSPAPER?
We at SF BAY Data Entry provide partial and full newspaper scanning services. Even oversized newspapers are scanned with ease. Sometimes, you just need to scan only a small section and the photo, we’ll crop out that portion for you. If you’re working on a photo book with our design team, we can also crop out the headlines from your newspapers to keep everything together.
Sharing & Archiving After Converting Old Newspapers To Digital
The paper quality of the newspapers is not so good. It will deteriorate faster than photographs or film so it’s important to scan important information contained in newspaper clippings digitally. We have scanners to scan the newspapers without folding or compressing the size of the newspaper. The editing tools are used to scan any size and composite larger items back together again.
Preserving and sharing important information is a historical archival which is valued in the digital age as historical documents.
