Popular Book Digitization Service now offers "try before you buy" service for book scanning
Their website at http://boundbookscanning.com offers both destructive scanning services (spine removed for feeder-scan method - cheaper option) as well as their niche non-destructive scan method where images are captured by overhead cameras page-by-page, and then the book is returned to the customer, intact. This service is slightly pricier but ideal for rare or valuable works.
Bound Book Scanning had performed extensive research on the digitization service industry and discovered that many other book scanning services offered were either located offshore, offered destructive scanning only, had minimum order requirements, or were prohibitively expensive. Therefore they've designed a business model to make book scanning fast, easy and affordable. Clients include individual consumers as well as corporate clients, such as libraries, educational institutions, and government agencies. They've established prestigious affiliations with companies such as Schoolfeed.com (classmates.com yearbook division) and Bookbaby.com (the world's largest ebook and POD service provider for independent authors and publishers)
Due to many requests, the company just rolled out a new option to "try before you buy":
"We now offer an option to request a free 10-page sample scan of your book within 24 hours of receipt, as we are confident in your satisfaction of our superior quality work. Once we receive confirmation of your satisfaction, we will proceed to complete your order. If you’re not satisfied, we will cancel your order and ship your book back to you free of charge."
This new offer is quickly gaining popularity and is evidence of a quality company that stands behind its product.
