Why Us?

 

Qualified Archive Professionals

Our staff have over 10+ years of experience in the industry, including working in archives and on specialised digitisation projects as Archivists. We view each project as if it were our own collection and treat it that way also. So you have peace of mind that your collection is in the right hands

Condition Checks & Q.A.

We always record conditions of items when delivered, during the digitisation process and after to give you peace of mind. Digitised files are checked at numerous stages and equipment is calibrated before each batch is started. All of this is recorded for progress and accountability.

As our mission states, we want everyone, from households and SMEs to charities and larger organisations to have access to high quality, cost effective scanning and digitisation services no matter what the budget. Whether an organisation needs a collection of 10000 items digitised for a preservation project or an individual has one transparency they want scanned to be able to share it with family members. Our services are designed to suit any budget.

Minimal Environmental Impact

The Image Cloud is aiming to have zero impact on the environment and as a company that uses energy in our processes from lights to scanners to shredders, we wanted to do something about it. Our energy provider is now supplying us with electricity from renewable sources only.
