Scanning Packages

Scan-to-editable .doc

eBook Prep uses the finest OCR and scanning equipment available and we do our utmost to attain the cleanest result possible from each book.

We also take the time to remove headers and footers, while retaining italics and paragraph designation.

We can even include the book’s graphics, if requested.

Two Service Levels Available

  • Basic Scan with minimal correction and no formatting ($40+)
  • Pre-production Scan with error correction and basic formatting (saves you hours of time) ($115+)

Custom Scanning

Do you have an ancient typed manuscript? A yellowed, water stained document? A document marked up in blue or red ink? We welcome scanning challenges. Contact us with any special requests.

Please Note:

  • The print copy will not be returned as the scanning is destructive
  • The maximum page size that we can handle is 8.5 x 14


For the author with far too much to do (and precious little time to do it), proofreading is the perfect addition to our Scanning and/or All-Inclusive Package.

If you haven’t the time (or desire) to do a complete read through of the .doc before it is converted into an eBook, we have two high-quality readers on staff who can take care of this for you.

This service can be applied before or after any story-changes you may have planned.

Cost: $0.001 per word, $85 minimum
