How to Count Your Documents

To determine the size of your scanning project, you will need to count your documents. The formula below explains how to find a close estimate.

Count 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 number will vary, but an estimate is all you will need to move forward. Learn more about counting your documents here.
