Preserve Documents, Photos, Books, Newspapers, and More With Microfilm and Microfiche Scanning

Microfilm is a storage medium that uses photographic film to shrink and store documents. It is commonly used to save paper documents such as newspapers, legal documents, and engineering drawings. Microfilm and microfiche scanning services are compact and affordable, making them a great archival storage practice. They have a shelf life of several hundred years and can keep a lot of information in a small place.

Another great benefit of using microfilm is how easy it is to convert to a digital format. Record Nations partners with innovative microfilm scanning companies that can capture images from your microfilm to create usable digital files. We accept 16mm and 35 mm film rolls, as well as microfiche in any format including jacketed, step and repeat, and COM.
