Large format

Large formats are documents with a larger size than the standard A4 format. This often makes it impossible to digitise these documents in their original state with a normal scanner. Most of the advanced high volume scanners can handle up to A3, but from A2 it becomes a different story. Also, these documents often take up a lot of space when stored in paper form and leave a lot of accessibility to be desired. Do you recognise this problem? Archive-IT can help you!

Digital document

Many documents have a mandatory retention period. This often also applies to large formats. Think for example of construction drawings. These are usually kept until a building is demolished and therefore take up a lot of valuable space when stored in physical form. When you choose to digitise your large formats, this space becomes available and can be used for other purposes. In addition, you save a lot of time and effort in searching for the right document.

Non-standard formats

Archive-IT is happy to help you with the digitising of your large formats. We have an advanced scanner that is extremely suitable for scanning non-standard formats. Think of A2, A1 and A0 formats. The digital documents or drawings that are subsequently delivered to you are of very high quality.

Examples of large formats we can scan for you:

  • Construction drawings
  • Technical drawings
  • Blueprints
  • (Country) maps

After digitising

After the digitisation process you have three options. You can choose to store your drawings at our location, but we can also return the files to you. We digitise according to the Substitution Standard and therefore you can also opt for confidential destruction of the original documents. Completely in accordance with laws and regulations.
