Document Scanning

Converting your paper documents into a searchable digital archive organizes your documents, makes them easy to search, and frees up tons of storage space.

Digitizing your documents saves you valuable time by making them quickly accessible. Digital archiving allows you to store as many years of documents as you wish without taking up space, and your documents are always organized. With just a few keystrokes, you can search your documents for exactly what you need and print them right from your computer. No file cabinets, no photocopies, just speed and convenience.

AMERICAN DIGITAL MEMORIES is dedicated to protecting your documents. We offer affordable digitization packages that include a remarkable number of features. Other companies charge double their rates or even more to perform the array of additional services that we include absolutely free when we scan your documents. We provide so many extras at no charge because we want to do more than just save you space. We want to ensure that your documents are permanently stored but still easy to access. A digital archive from AMERICAN DIGITAL MEMORIES is an affordable way to save space and improve efficiency. See below all the features that come standard with our basic digitization service.

American Digital Memories offers free two-way shipping with every project. We cover the cost of shipping your documents to and from our digitization facility, and we ship your digital product to you free as well. We send you the shipping labels, and we arrange for FedEx to pick up your property at a time that is convenient for you. We also provide detailed packing and shipping instructions to ensure that your documents arrive safely with no damage.

We digitize loose 8½ x 11 or 8½ x 14 single or double-sided documents. We digitize any documents, regardless of content. We take great care to preserve your original documents throughout our process.

American Digital Memories scans your documents in a rich greyscale that provides a high-quality image with much greater depth and tone than black-and-white. Our basic pricing covers scanning at a publisher-quality resolution of 300dpi.

American Digital Memories always respects the confidentiality of our clients. Your privacy is important to us. All of our workers sign both confidentiality and HIPAA agreements. We use an offline network to process your documents so that they can never be accessed by a third party.

American Digital Memories employs a rigorous quality assurance protocol to ensure that every document scans properly and that your images are as clear as the original. We rotate every image to an upright position. Believe it or not, many companies charge extra even for this simple service. We adjust the skew of the images so they are straight for quality presentation. We include these services at no cost to you because quality is as important to us as preservation.

Our standard optimization service enhances the viewing quality of your documents. We adjust focus, brightness, and contrast to ensure your documents are clear, crisp, and sharp. Many customers find that their digital documents are easier to read than the original. This is just another service that American Digital Memories includes at no cost.

Navigating your digital collection is quick and simple. We include our standard indexing services at no cost. We sort and label your documents for easy browsing. With our turnkey service, there is no need to presort. Just tell us how you want your documents organized (name, date, order number). American Digital Memories does the work for you at no extra charge.

After your documents are indexed, we run the images through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) so the computer can recognize the text within the documents, and we save them in a searchable PDF format. This allows you to search the contents of your documents by typing key words or phrases. Imagine the time you will save when you can type a single word and instantly find what you need. No more poring through file cabinets or boxes to find what you need. Most companies charge double their rates or even more to make your documents searchable, but American Digital Memories includes this service absolutely free.

American Digital Memories will provide a storage medium for your searchable PDF documents at no cost to you. We burn your searchable PDFs to DVDs labeled for your convenience. Most companies charge by the DVD for storage, but we include them absolutely free. For qualifying customers with large projects, we will upgrade you to a portable 1 terabyte hard drive at no extra cost.

We find that many of our customers don’t want their original documents back after we digitize them. We are happy to return your documents to you with free shipping, but if you no longer want your documents, American Digital Memories will shred and dispose of them for you at no charge. Free shipping or free disposal. Whichever option you choose, we’ll cover the cost.

Even with all of these features added, our per image digitization rate is still lower than many of our competitors charge just for simple scanning. AMERICAN DIGITAL MEMORIES has the resources to craft quality digital products at prices other companies just can’t touch. When you weigh in all of the features we include absolutely free, there is simply no competition. And, of course, it all comes with our amazing customer service.
