Drawing Scanning Services

Cleardata provides drawing scanning services to businesses throughout the UK. The company’s accredited scanning bureau is home to a fleet of large format scanners, capable of converting drawings up to size A0 into colour or mono electronic files. Information can be output to any preferred format, commonly used are PDF, JPEG or Tiff Files. This versatility means that you have the maximum choice to digitise your drawings the way that works the best for you and your company.

Drawings, whether they are sketches or plans, are very important to the person who drew them and the company which owns them. Digitisation should not mean that you end up with a worn original copy. That’s why it is so important to use a scanning service that prioritises the careful handling of your drawings at every stage of the process. Cleardata provides this excellent service for a variety of different industries.

Benefits of drawing scanning

Digitising documents enables drawings to be condensed and transferred between departments easily. Other benefits include:

  • Print multiple versions of files and make notes without damaging the original copy. Our service is designed to keep the original in perfect condition.
  • Protect drawings from potential harm, including fire, flood and theft. Don’t take risks with your valuable documents.
  • Save space within your premises and reduce costs. Easy access to all of your documents without them filling up your filing cabinets and desk drawers.
