Digital technology has radically changed the world in which we live. From the Internet to the proliferation of the smartphone, it’s changed how we communicate, shop, learn about local businesses and more. It’s also had an effect on the world of art and design. Digital art and illustration programs give designers, artists, architects and other professionals the means to create in a digital medium. But what about existing drawings, sketches and the like done in physical format? Actually, you can transform large format drawings to digital images with the right technology.

Large Format Drawings to Digital Images

What Are Large-Format Drawings?

While sketch and design books are often compact enough to carry with you, there are times when a larger format is needed. From an artist’s canvas to a car designer’s whiteboard, large-format drawings can be found everywhere. The problem here is that these are hardcopy formats – they’re physical, and they’re very large. That means it’s almost impossible to share them with anyone without actually handing over the original drawing. There are other problems, too. For instance, changing or modifying the drawing requires erasing or drawing over part of the original design.

The Benefits of Transforming Large Format Drawings to Digital Images

Digital images have a lot of advantages over conventional, hardcopy drawings. For instance, they can be easily modified with software. They can be scaled up or down almost endlessly. They can be shared easily right through email or a cloud storage platform. They also occupy no physical space at all, and they’re not susceptible to damage, accidents and other problems.

By transforming large format drawings to digital images, you gain these benefits and more. Because it is a digital file, it can be reproduced as many times as you like, with just the click of your mouse. It also offers benefits to professionals. Imagine being able to send clients large-format drawings via email rather than overnighting physical copies.

Of course, it also offers benefits for many other instances. For example, let’s say a designer created a significant number of large sketches on paper. Those sketches could all be turned into digital files through an advanced scanning process and then stored and accessed online, or through a CD or DVD. This would allow the designs to be used for other needs, including sending them to production facilities, for concept work and more.

Another example would be creating a legacy for an artist. Sure, having physical sketches and designs is great, but they’re not protected for the long term. They can be easily damaged by everything from spilled coffee to fires. They’re also not accessible to anyone else. By transforming large-format drawings to digital images, you can create a legacy that will stand the test of time while being available to anyone with whom you’d like to share those images.

    •   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 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.
