Destructive book scanning is the process of digitizing books by separating and scanning each individual page of the book to develop high quality PDF files, which can be used digitally or to create a brand new run of printed books. Digitizing your book can also help protect and save it, by electronically archiving it forever.

Breathe new life into your previous work with our book scanning service. We’ll convert your old book into a PDF file that you can use to create a brand new version of your printed book.
First, we’ll unbind and remove your book’s pages to ensure precision throughout the book scanning process. We’ll then scan all of your book’s content, which takes about three days to complete. Once finished, you’ll receive a hi-resolution PDF file that you can either enjoy as is or use to republish your work into a new custom-printed book.
