Digitizing service - large vintage paper prints

Post by BretC »

Hello:

I have a few full-size vintage paper plans to make outdoor Christmas decorations. The plans consist of Santa and elves. I would like to reproduce these decorations using a CNC router. With this in mind, is there a digitization service where I can send the prints to who will digitize them and return the paper prints?

Thank you.

Check with your nearby FedEx-Kinkos. They frequently have large format scanners. The scans are usually saved as a PDF file.

Randall:

Good idea. What is the best method to then convert from PDF to digital?

Thanks
