Why Should You Scan Your Historical Documents?
Historical or archival documents hold their value in many ways:
- Sentimental value
- Historical significance
- Relevant content
- Relevant names or signatures
However, in the event the original documents are damaged, destroyed, or stolen, all is lost. QFI can help you preserve the information they contain, with crystal clear, digitized imagery that will be enjoyed for generations to come. Documents can be scanned to a number of different formats, including TIFF, PDF, or JPEG, depending on your needs or preferences.
The Benefits of Professional Scanning Services
- Preservation: While there is no doubt that scanning your historical documents is a great way to back up priceless materials and data, performing this task in-house, or hiring the wrong company to do it for you, can have dire consequences. Since 1985, QFI has been a leader in historical document scanning, helping museums, historical societies, institutes and cultural centers around MD, DC, PA, NJ, and VA, to preserve the integrity of their most valuable historic assets.
- Accessibility: In order for others within your organization, community, or around the nation to view the historical documents in your possession, they must typically visit a museum or specialized facility, or be satisfied with a textbook image. With professional scanning services by QFI, historical documents come to life, with crisp, clear imagery that closely mimics the original, and can be shared across your organization or across the globe.
- Experience: With over 30 years of experience, state of the art scanning equipment to suit all sizes and types of documents, and first hand knowledge about the safe handling of fragile historical documents, it’s easy to see why so many clients continue to trust QFI for all their scanning needs. Documents are handled with clean, cotton gloves to prevent the transfer of dirt or oils, handling is kept to a minimum, and the surrounding area is kept clear of objects or fluids which may damage materials.
