By scanning your blueprints, plan sets and maps, you transform them into digital intelligence that enables you to easily access, share and manage your files for better collaboration and make sure you are always working on the latest set of files. Document scanning transforms paper documents and other hard copy media documents into instantly accessible information from anywhere.
We make scanning easy. We can index and scan any volume of documents in a timely manner. Scanning can be done at your location or ours. Our large format scanning devices can handle large format drawings and schematics.
Got old, aged plans, maps or blueprints? Not a problem, and actually you’ll get improved images after we scan them. In most cases with older blueprints, bluelines, sepia vellums, and other aged drawings, the resultant images are more readable than the originals.

We use high-quality wide scanners for scanning. We scan at 200-600 dpi to get the highest quality image, in Black & White, Grayscale or Color.
Old blueprints require specialised attention. Many drawings are old and torn. We repair the drawings before they are scanned. Drawings, where the background is blue with white lines, can be reversed with special software we have, or they can be captured in colour to preserve the historical value of the Blueprint.
ARC can scan the drawings within 1-2 days. Please bring it over to any of our document scan centres and we will get it done for you.
Once the drawings are scanned, we rename the sheet for easy search. However, if you need additional services like indexing, linking and vectorization (Creating an editable CAD file from the hardcopy), ARC staff can help you.
All drawings can be scanned as a PDF or a TIFF file. You can open these images on your PC and Mac without any special software.
No, these images are PDFs. However, if you require ARC to convert them to vector files, we can do so for an additional charge. Vector images can be imported to any CAD program for further changes.
We can scan paper as small as a business card, all the way up to Maps and Drawings 60” wide by any length, even 20 feet long!
