Digitize books, magazines, documents
Trigger can scan all kinds of magazines and books. We do this in 2 ways.
We can strip the spines of the books or magazines and scan loose-leaf OR we scan the books or magazines as they are.
What can we process?
- Bound books up to size 25x38cm
- Glued/stapled magazines up to 25x38cm
- Bound sheet music
- Cut-to-size books up to A3 size
- Cut magazines up to A3 size
- cut sheet music
- File folders
If the books remain intact, we work with a real book scanner and the scans will be a maximum of 2600x3900 pixels. That equates to 300dpi for the books that are A4 or larger. For books smaller than A5, it works out to about 450dpi. Then a photo per page is made as we digitize the book and all these photos are later processed into a PDF, ePub, Word or other digital format. The texts are then searchable and editable. A little bit of space is lost in the fold of the book, but that is not an issue in most cases because there are no texts there anyway.
Books cut loose / uncovered
If the books, cut loose, digitize the books, then the scanning is just that little bit sharper and straighter. It is also cheaper because the sheets can be scanned with less manual work. When scanning books in this way, a digital photo is made of each side and all these photos are later processed into PDF, ePub, Word or other digital format. The texts are then searchable and editable. There is a little bit of page loss due to the cutting, but that is very limited. The formats we can convert to are countless. Most requested are searchable PDF, Word and ePub. But XML, musicML, RTF, Excel are also possible. Whether it is also successful depends on the print quality in particular and the layout. It is often advisable to have a test done to see if it meets your expectations. Because we cannot put all information on our website: if you have a different wish, please inform us. We can scan a lot when it comes to books! For example, we can also break down articles or chapters or remove pages with advertisements or place them separately. The file names can also be changed so that it becomes clear for you. We are not afraid of size and complexity.
Epub, searchable pdf, word
What you want to do with the files determines the format in which we save the scanned files. Of course, storage in multiple formats is possible.
Most popular formats are searchable pdf, word and epub.
