How Document Scanning Services Work

Begin preparing for your scanning project by counting the number of pages you plan on converting. Your provider will ask for this number to determine the price of your scanning project and begin preparations.
Count the number of banker’s boxes, files, or inches of paper you have you have on a shelf. 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. Multiple 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 number will vary based on the thickness of your paper, the brand of boxes and files you use, and how tightly you have packed your documents. Learn more about counting your documents here.
