I have approximately 4000 magazines with an average of 125 pages each. I want to scan these magazines using a Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600. This is not a flatbed scanner but an overhead scanner that can scan an open magazine ( 2 pages ) in approximately 3 seconds ( please check it out on the website ). I want to scan all the magazines into digital format and save them to an external hard drive.
Here is my problem. I live in Alberta Canada and 4000 magazines in plastic storage totes with lids would be very heavy and not at all economical to ship to another country and back. I might be willing to buy a ScanSnap SV600 in a country where someone could do the job but I don't know how I could get all the magazines there economically.
Any ideas or input would be appreciated.
