Document and File Scanning - Oxford's most professional Bureau

We are currently working on a large order with Blue Cross. Pets are at the heart of everything they do. Each year, thousands of cats, dogs, small pets, and horses turn up to their animal hospitals, clinics and rehoming services for treatment and to find them the happy homes they deserve.  The Blue Cross Education and Behaviour Teams prepare future pet owners to take responsibility and look after their pets for life.

Our book, magazine and document scanning services are highly recommended by leading companies. If you wish to discuss a project, please do email or call 01865 457000.

Book Scanning – Digitisation of books and delicate items

This order required 2 different types of digitising. The first was destructive magazine scanning, whereby we trim the bound edge and convert using our fast batch scanners. With our state-of-the-art scanning bureau, we digitised their complete archive of magazines and books, backdated to several decades.  The output was prepared as full colour PDFs with optical character recognition, perfect for o
nline searching and viewing.

The second was non-destructive scanning, whereby each page had to be carefully scanned to ensure the bound book was retained. This is typical for one-off copies and rare books.

Management of Books and Documents

Our services offer clients affordable and highly professional digitisation of all formats of documents and convert these to electronic formats of your choice.  We can effectively scan up to A1, and include fragile documents such as old maps, plans and drawings, artwork, and other specialist media.

Scanned images can be provided in many formats such as TIFF, JPEG or PDF formats, and can be created in B/W, Colour or Greyscale up to 600dpi, with output to USB, FTP, or similar systems.

Non-Destructive Handling

Our state-of-the-art book scanners utilise flatbed and V-cradle technology, ensuring the most delicate of books and media are digitised without harm.

Preserving Family Memories - caring for your heritage

Memories  are an important part of all our lives. Old letters, photographs, scrapbooks, slides and negatives, glass plates, cine film, audio-visual tapes and many other things help us to recall our past and the history of our family and communities. All of these things, however, are subject to decay and eventual destruction if they are not cared for properly.  Oxford Duplication Centre in Kidlington can support all our clients with digitisation of all consumers, corporate and heritage scanning and digitisation.  Please do email or contact us 01865 457000 to discuss your project.

5 things you shouldn’t store in your attic

It's a handy storage space, but not for everything! Much like the garage, your attic is a perfect storage black hole — things often get put up there, never-to-return. But if you've spent years packing bits and bobs in the space above your house without much thought, you might want to reconsider. Most attic spaces are subject to extremes of temperature and fluctuating humidity, which make them an unsuitable place to store certain things. It's time to pull down the ladder and have a dig around at what's up there. Here's our list of things you shouldn't store in your attic. 1. Old tech VCRs, TVs, smartphones, laptops and games consoles - any delicate electronics - shouldn’t be kept where there are big fluctuations in temperature and high humidity levels such as an attic. Moisture can easily collect inside and damage them. If you no longer need them, consider selling on eBay instead of storing. 2. Photographs or picture albums Your recent memories may al
