Microfilm Scanning
Digitisation & Archiving Services

Microfilm in its various formats continues to play a vital role in all forms of records management.

Microfilm Scanning

Stor-a-File has long advocated that whilst microfilm is commonly perceived as an old-fashioned, outmoded and somewhat inappropriate technology in today's fast-moving electronic world, it will continue to play a vital role where long-term information retention is demanded.


Indeed, many national archives see microfilm as a transitional, surrogate medium upon which the original material is recorded for long-term storage and for subsequent duplication either to further microfilm copies or electronic format.
We provide microfilming services such as 16mm and 35mm rollfilm, aperture cards and microfiche to an extensive commercial client base; this includes large-format plans.

We are considered to be the largest microfilming bureau in the UK, cementing our place as one of the only document management and conversion companies that can truly offer a complete service in all areas of document management.

Stor-a-File is able to offer a complete solution to scan and index your microfilm records and return them in appropriate format so that they fit into your existing electronic document management system.
If you do not have an existing EDM solution, we are happy to assist you in developing and supplying a system that meets your requirements.

We can also convert from one format to another; 16mm, 35mm, microfiche, CD, DVD, and if required back to full-size hard copy reproductions on a wide variety of materials.

  • Twice yearly we carry out physical inventory for the whole plant which results in a considerable amount of data to process. We have been using Stor-a-File for a number of years to process the data and have found them to be efficient and accurate in the keying of this data. As well as data processing they actually pick up the packages and deliver them back to us when complete. Stor-a-File work weekends to accommodate our schedule for completion of data – if you are looking for a solution to solve a problem relating to data capture we would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • The biggest benefit to us is that you are so versatile. Urgent deliveries within 2 hours (normally less than this though in practice) as you are so local. Notes available within the same space of time that we work to onsite.
