Comic Book Scanning Service

Back to Help

Pearl Scan offers a comic book scanning services to digitise old comics and magazines without damaging the original document. There is an increasing amount of collectors and publishers that wish to digitise their old comics and a comic book scanning service is the perfect way to do so.

Pearl Scan use top of the range overhead scanners (we invested in our latest one in April 2012) to scan rare and fragile documents, books, magazines and comics and graphic novels. Scanners like this are far more appropriate for publications of this nature as the scanning isn’t as harsh to the paper to ensure that the comics come back to you exactly how they left you once the process is completed.

Digitising classic comics safely

At Pearl Scan we use top of the range overhead scanners to scan rare and fragile documents, books, magazines, comics and graphic novels. We use our overhead scanners to scan all kinds of comics ranging from the exceptionally rare issues right up to modern editions.

The overhead scanners that we use to scan a comic book effectively only scan from a distance from the comic itself, while taking an image of around 50mp (mega-pixel), which is crisp, bright and colourful. Compared to a normal flatbed scanner, the exposure of light is significantly lessened due to the distance between the scanner and the paper but the image quality is still of the highest sizing that it can be. Scanning staff can complete the process fairly quickly thanks to the latest innovations that come with the scanner and excellent software especially developed for the equipment.

Once each comic is scanned, it can then be indexed by date or issue number and provided back to the client in high and low resolutions.
