Need to Scan Microfiche (Just One or a Batch?)

Microfiche Scanning

Generation Imaging will scan a handful of microfiche for a low cost.

Do you have a genealogical microfiche, a motorcycle manual on step-and-repeat, or accounting COM fiche? Perhaps you have a historical microfiche sheet containing engineering drawings or want to digitize your military records? Whatever the case may be, Generation Imaging can help you view the microfiche images on your computer by converting them into digital images. You have found the place that can scan from one microfiche card up to any amount of microfiche cards. We can scan any quantity of microfiche that you may need scanned. Unlike some bigger corporations who charge $250 minimum fees or simply won’t even scan two fiche from a hobbyist or 20 microfiche from a small business, Generation Imaging is more than happy to assist you.

We recognize that many people will encounter the need to convert their few microfiche. Many companies find it annoying to service someone with only one card because scanning service bureaus do not like to stop production to scan a handful of microfiche cards. Most companies prefer not to bother with very small microfiche scanning jobs. Our most common request is to convert microfiche to PDF or microfiche to TIFF. After you contact Damian or Dan and get your flat rate quote, simply enclose your check to G.I. PARTNERS, LLC with the microfiche.

It makes no difference to Generation Imaging if you have a very small amount of microfiche to scan, as we give all jobs equally high awareness. To our customers, their job is essential. We also make sure that the small microfiche scanning job does not fall to the back of the priority list. Small microfiche scanning jobs are not as profitable as big scanning jobs but we make sure that this fact does not interfere with job priority.

Our priority is customer satisfaction. For this reason we will scan your one or two microfiche cards with great proficiency. Furthermore, we can also index the images we scan if you wish. Regardless of how many microfiche you have, we can provide high service.

A small microfiche conversion job of just a few microfiche cards may need to be processed in a very short amount of time. There are electronic means available to us that will allow delivery of small jobs quickly. This process is easy and can be very secure. Therefore, you don’t have to worry because we will take care of you job.

Give us a call or shoot us an e-mail the next time you need a handful of microfiche to scan. We will scan the microfiche and return your project promptly. Our goal will be your satisfaction.  Although we a large capacity company that scans millions microfilm images, we also can take care of a very small microfiche job; this separates us from the rest of the scanning bureaus that throw big money around with Google AdWords.  We will take care of your project so fast that you will be thankful you sent it to us.

Microfilm Scanning Bureau

Microfilm scanning

Generation Imaging is a scanning bureau that uses the right kind of digital microfilm scanner to convert your microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, and Kodak slides. Generation Imaging’s staff has decades of experience with using different types of digital microfilm scanners from various scanner manufacturers, like Sunrise, NextScan, Wicks & Wilson, Canon, Minolta, E Image Data, and others.

Generation Imaging is able to keep your microfilm scanning price down because of their low overhead. G.I. is an ideal partner for other scanning bureaus who wish to outsource microfilm scanning projects.

Why would other scanning bureaus that have scanning equipment outsource to Generation Imaging? There are quite a few reasons:

1) Scanning Costs- Depending on the volume, time-frame, and labor costs of your microfilm scanning project, it is very possible that G.I.’s scanning costs may actually be lower. Some scanning bureaus don’t have a smooth microfilm scanning production set up and it can really be a hassle sometimes.

2) Scanning equipment- not all digital microfilm scanners are created equal- some name brands are better than others, some scanners have additional modules, higher resolutions, more imaging filters, and faster image output rates. At the most basic level, some scanning bureaus don’t have a microfilm scanner, microfiche scanner, aperture card scanner, or Kodak slide scanner.

3) Work Overflow– there are some microfilm scanning projects that are so big, that a scanning bureau needs to either buy a new digital scanner or partner up with another scanning bureau. Some scanning bureaus can be hit with a bunch of smaller projects that need to be outsourced as well.

4) Film Scanning service– at Generation Imaging, co-founders Damian Hospital and Dan Gandul are trustworthy, efficient, productive, technically orientated, and practice outstanding customer service.

5) Corporate pricing– some scanning bureaus get handcuffed by their corporate office when it comes to giving low prices for an internal microfilm conversion. Subcontracting the film scanning service to G.I. is an excellent alternative.

6) Microfilm government RFP bids- in addition to offering low microfilm, microfiche, and aperture card scanning prices so scanning bureaus can be in a better position to win government RFPs, G.I. also provides other micrographic services, such as microfilming, archive writing, Florida document scanning, microfilm duplication, paper blowback printing, and more.

Microfiche Scanning

Microfiche to DVD
Microfiche scanning is possible with specialized equipment, such as NextScan microfiche scanners, Mekel scanners, Sunrise scanners, and others.

Generation Imaging is comprised of experts in converting microfiche to digital images. Over the years, G.I.’s production team has experience in performing different types of microfiche scanning projects from all over the United States, and has performed work for organizations from England (UK) , Mexico, Australia, Ireland, Canada, New Foundland, and other countries around the globe. GI prides itself on being open-minded to international microfiche scanning partnerships. We speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Visaya, and Tagalog.

Generation Imaging can digitize COM fiche, jacketed microfiche, 16mm microfiche, 35mm microfiche, step and repeat microfiche, rewritable microfiche, large format fiche, ultrafiche, and other types of microfiche. Generation Imaging’s microfiche scanning services can convert microfiche to PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and other file formats, such as a PDF/A OCR file. Additionally, GI provides image indexing and data entry.

If you are trying to win a government RFP bid that was listed on BidSynch or Onvia and come across a microfiche digitizing portion, we can assist you with a microfiche scanning quote and perform the service.

Whether microfiche digitizing is new to you, you have a microfiche bid opportunity, or if you are an experienced reseller, Generation Imaging can assist you with the microfiche conversion process, and explain the differences between COM fiche, 16mm jacketed microfiche, step and repeat fiche cards, 35mm jackets, and rewritable microfiche.

For example, for 16mm roll film, you can expect to see an 80% lower scan cost from the early 2000’s. This price trend started before the current economy changes took affect.

Our clients will benefit from the price cuts, but another important advantage is that we all benefit from quality and service improvements also.

We can now capture and process images with much higher quality standards, thanks to the advancements of the latest systems available.
