In this week’s scanner feature highlight segment, we’d like to take a moment to discuss some of the legacy documents which many of our prospective customers are currently holding on to, unaware of the fact that they can be quickly and easily digitized. Legacy documents, generally speaking, can be broadly categorized into technical documents and graphical documents. Legacy technical documents include blueprints and CAD designs. Legacy graphical documents include old artwork and sheet music. Let’s take a moment to go over why digitizing older documents is a smart move.
The truth of the matter is that no physical form of media is entirely safe – while rare, natural disasters like floods, hurricanes and snowstorms can completely wipe out even the most seemingly secure stockpile of documents. For this reason, it’s important to digitize all of your documents, and keep the digital backups stored in a secure location. If your documents aren’t digitally archived, in the event that something does happen you may find yourself extraordinarily frustrated. The biggest benefit to having a large format device to archive your old documents is that, generally speaking, scanners provide superior documents to their originals. If you’re interested to learn more about the process of digitizing your old legacy documents using a large format scanner, give us a call at (866)-338-4464, or send us an email at
