Microfilming and Microfilm Scanning
Microtek began business as a microfilming service bureau in 1968. While advancements in digital systems offer instant access to documents, microfilm is still a good way to store permanent documents and data. Microtek converts all types of business records, engineering drawings, newspapers, medical records, research notebooks, state and local government records, and virtually any other documents to standard microfilm formats:
- 16mm Microfilm
- 35mm Microfilm
- Aperture Cards
All our work is 100% guaranteed!

Microfilm to Digital Conversion
Already have your documents on microfilm? Microtek can scan any standard microfilm format and create digital images to be uploaded into an existing electronic document management system, the cloud, or directly onto a CD, DVD, USB flash drive, or external hard drive for viewing over your network or the Internet. Whether it’s engineering drawings on aperture cards, medical records on microfiche, or newspapers on 35mm film, we can convert that permanent microfilm image to an easily retrievable digital image.
Digital Images to Microfilm
Do your electronic/digital documents and data comply with government regulations for record retention? Do you have a disaster recovery program for these records? According to industry experts, digitally stored data begins to degrade after about seven years, and to overcome this shortfall, they recommend microfilm as the self-sustainable storage medium of choice for the long-term preservation of business documents. Microtek can convert your digital images to archival microfilm so they can easily be stored for disaster recovery, business continuity, or government compliance. Whether your digital images were created by scanning paper or originally within your own software application, we can convert those images to microfilm for permanent storage. Don’t let your electronic records become inaccessible due to technology changes or be destroyed in a disaster without being backed up on microfilm! Once stored offsite, you now have a complete disaster recovery program and long term storage for your permanent records.
