The Benefits of Large Format Scanning Services


When your documents are scanned, they will be indexed by important identifiers. You can index your files by name, date, job ID, or other important identifiers you choose. Indexing enables you to find and share your digital documents using a keyword search. This gives you greater accessibility, eliminates wasted time, and allows for centralized digital storage.

Remote Access

Once your large format documents are digitized, they can be accessed from anywhere. This will greatly benefit organizations with multiple offices or remote teams.


Large format documents like blueprints and drawings tend to become damaged as they are handled and used. Digital documents create a permanent record that does not fade or deteriorate over time. Digital documents can also be easily backed up to prevent data loss. 

More Space

Large format documents take up huge amounts of physical space. You will reduce your need for physical storage, saving you money and allowing you to better utilize your office space.

Improved Collaboration

Digital copies of your large format documents can be easily shared with colleagues, clients, or stakeholders via email, cloud storage, or other collaboration platforms. Multiple parties can review and work on the same documents at the same time, enhancing collaboration for large-scale projects.


Large format scanning services can handle a wide range of document sizes and types. This makes it scalable for both small and large organizations with various digitization needs.

See What Our Customers Are Saying

San Antonio, TX
"I was amazed at the rapid and courteous response to my inquiry! Amazingly helpful, they referred me to a provider that more specifically pertained to my project (which is small-scale and related to fine arts) - quite rare in the workplace where the usual response from a typical representative would have been, "Sorry, can't do. Bye." I will definitely recommend them to other clients who need larger volumes of digital scanning done. We need more ethical businesses like this one in the world!"
Durham, NC
"Yolanda at Record Nations asked me a few questions about my archiving requirements then provided me with at least five (5) capable scanning services vendors and all are in the process of quoting the rather large job. I would use Record Nations next time I need archival services."

Large Format Scanning Service FAQs

What is considered a large format document?


Any document that is larger than the standard-sized paper (8.5″ x 11″) is considered large format. Common examples include blueprints, architectural drawings, engineering diagrams/drawings, maps, schematics, sketches and artwork, building plans/drawings, etc.

Is there any prep work that needs to be done before scanning my large format documents?


Your large format documents need to be removed from tubes, racks, rubberbands, or any other type of binding.
