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. Instead of a bound book that can face wear and tear, a scanned book ensures that your writing will be timeless in its digital format.
Whether you’re scanning old books or lost your manuscript document files, breathe new life into your previous work with BookBaby’s book scanning services. We'll turn your book into a PDF digital file that you can use to create a brand new version of your printed book when you purchase 25 or more printed books. We offer a variety of different pricing options, depending on your needs.
Breathe new life into your physical book 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. Digitizing your book pages ensures that your writing will be here for generations to come.
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. The scanning project will take about three days to complete. Once finished, your book will be a print-ready PDF that can be used to republish your work into a new custom-printed book.
