How Document Scanning Services Work

Scanning works by taking your physical documents and converting them into digital files. We use high-quality scanners to produce crystal-clear images that can be indexed and stored on a cloud service or document management system.

How to Count Your Documents 

To count your documents add up the number of banker’s boxes, files, or inches of paper you have. A standard banker’s box (12.5″W x 15.5″D x 10.5″H) can fit 2,000 to 2,500 sheets of paper. A larger file box (15″W x 24″D x 10.5″H) can hold 4,000 to 4,500 sheets of paper. On a shelf, you can typically fit 150 to 200 sheets of paper per inch. Multiply those numbers by the number of boxes, files, or inches.

For example, if you have 3 banker’s boxes full of paper, you will calculate: 3 boxes x 2500 sheets of paper = 7500 documents.

The final number will vary, but it will give you a close estimation. The more accurate your estimation, the more accurate your price quote will be. To learn more about counting your documents, click here
