How will you organize all of these hard copies, and how will you ensure that someone who needs any of the documents can quickly find them? Even more worrisome is just where are you going to store all of the documents? And if you need climate controls, how are you going to handle all of that, too?

Archiving Paper Documents Services

The good news is that archiving old paper documents service is easier & economical than ever. There are now premium services offering high resolution and high quality scanning of paper documents of any kind meeting with the NARA guidelines.

Professional Archiving of Old Paper Documents

The key, though, is to work with a company that can indeed handle all that you need. It is not a wise choice to spread out the project across several providers. Instead, find a firm that can work with historical items as easily as they can reams of paperwork from an office or medical provider.

You also want to consider the benefits of a company that will come to you and pick up the items. After all, you might have delicate paper documents for archiving or simply such a large amount that shipping would be cost prohibitive. Remember, a professional imaging services provider will expect the whole projects to be carried out in batches.

They should provide you the file formats you need and at the best resolutions. They should also offer you storage services that make it easy for you to search for and find the materials once the archiving of old paper documents is complete. eRecordsUSA is a long-time provider of such services and is eager to help you with your next project.

    What Our Client Says

    •   I contacted eRecords for a small-scale scanning job. Although they usually work on large projects, Pankaj was more than willing to help with what I was looking for! The scans that came back were high quality, and delivered in a timely matter. eRecords was also the business that quoted me the most competitive price. I would definitely recommend - Pankaj is knowledgable and a great collaborator to work with on meeting any scanning service you may need.

    •   I have used eRecordsUSA on three separate occasions and each job was performed exceptionally. All files scanned at high resolution, organized, and returned in a timely manner. Pricing was also very reasonable for such time-intensive work. Management was also very good with their communication.

      I am a digital nomad that owns zero paper, so having all of my files in Google Drive is imperative. With Google's OCR (Optical Coherence Recognition) I can now find my files at lightning speed. ie - I search for [deed], [roof repair], [assessment], etc. and all relevant files "automagically" appear.

    •   EXCELLENT quality work. VERY professional. I had some kids art work scanned high resolution that was too large for the scanners at copy shops. eRecordsUSA did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them.

    •   ERecords USA provided a fast and accurate turnaround for a request to duplicate X-Rays.  They ensured that copies were accurate prior to payment and went out of their way to produce within a short time.

    •   Erecords scanned 56 bankers boxes of legal case files and other professional documents for me. This was a particularly difficult and complex job because, in naming files, they had to work from both a written file inventory and the file names on the folders themselves and use a consistent file naming protocol that Erecords and I agreed upon. They did an outstanding job of following this file naming protocol and organizing the documents in digital form to create the file structure that I intended. This job was also difficult because of the variety of page sizes and the age and condition of some of the documents; they managed to accurately capture everything. They also made the job easier for me by picking the documents up at my home. Pankaj at E records was invariably courteous and helpful and spent the time needed with me before the job to develop a digital file structure to make the documents most useful. I highly recommend Erecords for document scanning.

    •   I chose eRecords to scan over 2000 pages of yearbooks and several hundred photos from the early 90's to early 00's. I was not disappointed. They were one of the few locations in the Bay Area that I contacted that let me drop off and pickup the material in person. The JPG and PDF scans that they sent me were extremely high quality and OCR'd the yearbooks so I can search for text. They were able to repair one of my yearbook's bindings to the point where I couldn't even find the repair! This place is professional and good value for what I received. If something ever happened to my irreplaceable yearbooks and photos I know they're digitized now and backed up to multiple locations on my network and cloud! Highly recommended, Pankaj and eRecords!

    •   I found eRecordsUSA on an internet search and contacted them to inquire about scanning to PDFs a set of some six hundred old, faded, tattered pages of an underground/community newspaper I co-founded fifty years ago.  I lucked out on this first call, finding a most professional, efficient, accessible, top notch company to help me archive my newspaper despite these trying, pandemic times.

    •   eRecordsUSA did a wonderful job scanning a large, irreplaceable, almost 100-year-old original opera. After checking with the State Library and other printers, we learned that eRecordsUSA was the company that could handle our job. The owner understood the job's importance to us and did the job quickly and professionally.

    •   Very impressed. Wow. They scanned an old picture for me today, and I can't believe the details they were able to "pull out" of the picture. It's over 60 years old and I am in awe of how this looks. Amazing. Thank you to everyone at eRecords!
