The exact cost of scanning microfiche varies depending on a number of factors including:
- Number of sheets scanned
- Type of fiche
- Final resolution
- Indexing requirements
- Whether or not you require OCR
- Schedule – How fast do you need to scan?
In general, the average cost of scanning a single microfilm sheet is $0.75 – $1.25/sheet for jacket fiche (16mm and 35mm) and $3 to $5 for COM fiche. If you have a roll of microfilm, the cost to scan it is going to cost somewhere around $85 depending on the number of images on the roll.
