1DollarScan.com – Scans For $1
A service that caught my eye because of its actual dynamics and implementation, 1DollarScan.com will let you take a book and have as much as one hundred pages scanned for just $1. And you will get a PDF file that can be searched in return – an OCR text layer will be placed behind the images to make the text both searchable and selectable. So, you will end up getting more than a mere image that doesn’t lend itself to much more than zooming in and out of it.
Alternatively, $1 will let you have up to 10 images scanned, or 10 pages of a document digitized. And the company can also digitize 10 business cards for that price. Or 1 greeting card.
And once the scanning and digitization is over, you can request the paper materials be sent back to you (they will be recycled after two weeks otherwise).
Sometime down the line, the company is going to accept shipments from Amazon, and it will also be able to make direct uploads to DropBox accounts.
