" Creating a stand-out direct mail piece is one thing. Satisfying our rigorous brand standards is something else entirely. Orange Door Direct (a subsidiary of West Canadian) delivered an innovative product that connected quite powerfully with our audiences. We were very impressed with their ability to adhere to our brand guidelines while delivering a superb direct mail piece."


" West Canadian maintains the same level of service that they come to the table with. Dependable and reliable – West Canadian is virtually an extension of our own business."


" We only print what we need, when we need it, making it easy to manage marketing materials and customizable collateral. Our investment in the WebConnect print-on-demand solution has proven to be worth every penny. It’s been of tremendous value to ATB."


" Our past vendor didn’t like the idea of quarterly meetings. When we made the transition to West Canadian it opened a door to new ideas and a different way of doing business. Now we meet quarterly to discuss reports and have open lines of communications with all West Canadian employees. Everyone is quick to respond to questions and able to deliver results."

How much does it cost to scan a box of paper records?

How much does it cost to scan a box of paper records? A standard bankers box of documents contains about 1,800 pages. The industry average to scan those records is between $0.10 and $0.17 per page and a standard box of records costs around $250 to scan. Sounds simple, but there's a caveat. If you see a company advertising $0.07 (or lower!) per image price, buyer beware. You get what you pay for. Our standardized pricing models include all basic digitization services like document preparation, scanning, processing, indexing, quality assurance and file delivery. For those companies offering lower than standard pricing, these basic services may be additional costs that could leave you paying triple. We like to be transparent with our customers about the value we provide. Following are 7 common factors that can contribute to the cost of a document scanning and conversion project. Ready for a personalized estimate? Visit our online calculator for per-box pricing > Common factors that affect pricing for document scanning services 1) How much preparation is needed to prepare your files for scanning? Document preparation for scanning can include removing pages from binders, removing staples and other fasteners, folding down corners and ironing out wrinkled pages. If your paper document collection is looking particularly disorganized or messy, this can increase the amount of prep required. 2) Are your pages single- or double-sided? A standard bankers box averages about 1,800 images per box. But be sure to check for double-sided pages in your collection as these will count as two images (front and back). 3) What sizes are your documents? Standard high-speed scanners can work with documents up to 11x17". Documents larger than that (such as architectural drawings, blueprints or maps) need specialty oversized scanning. 4) How many index fields do you need captured? Using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, we can make your documents searchable when they're converted to PDFs. Not all OCR technologies are built with the same level of sophistication. The system we use recognizes over 100 languages, ideal for organizations with multilingual documentation. OCR can also capture and recognize index fields in your document which can help to classify and organize information in your content management system. Index fields will change based on your unique requirements. In most cases, customers only require three standard fields based on their industry. However, there are some customers who have more complex needs and can ask for 50+ custom fields. 5) Do you have scanning accuracy compliance requirements? The industry standard for imaging accuracy rating is 99%. This translates to for every 100 pages, one has an error. Customers with industry-specific compliance regulations sometimes require up to 99.99% accuracy, which requires additional QC and manual oversight that can add to the cost of your project. 6) Do you want each section, folder or document delivered as a PDF? Whether you want each section (common to land files), folder or document delivered as a PDF will affect your per-box price. If one folder has 10 documents in it, it can quickly be scanned all at once into a single PDF. If each of those documents needs to separated into their own PDF, this will require more time and therefore higher cost. 7) Where are your records stored and where do you want them scanned? Our team can securely transport your records collection to our compliant scanning facilities in Calgary or Edmonton, or we can deploy records technicians to scan them on-site at your organization. The method you choose and the physical location of your records will factor into the price of your scanning project. Have questions? Leave us a comment below or contact us directly.

West Canadian's George Brookman Appointed to the Order of Canada

West Canadian Digital Imaging is proud to announce that our Owner and Chairman, George Brookman, has been appointed to the Order of Canada by the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada. The Order of Canada is one of our country’s highest civilian honours. Its Companions, Officers and Members take to heart the motto of the Order: DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM ("They desire a better country"). George is recognized by the Order for his commitment to local business initiatives, and for his multifaceted contributions as a Calgary community leader. Some of his recent community leadership roles include: Director of the Field of Crosses, a veteran's memorial tribute in Calgary; Chairman of Breakfast on the Bridge fundraisers in support of the Calgary Military Family Resource Centre; Ambassador for the Salvation Army's Day of 1,000 Lunches; and Past President and Chairman of the Board of the Calgary Stampede. "To be recognized among thousands of inspiring Canadians is an honour that is both humbling and overwhelming," says George. "This is such a proud moment not just for me, but for my family, friends, colleagues and the many people who have made the journey with me. It’s a true recognition of the importance of community, particularly at this difficult time." Created in 1967, the Order of Canada recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. More than 7,000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order. Those who bear the Order’s iconic snowflake insignia have changed our nation’s measure of success and, through the sum of their accomplishments, have helped us build a better Canada. Appointments are made by the governor general on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada. Congratulations to the 114 appointees announced today!
