Making a PDF
- FedEx/Kinko’s also has the ability to scan your hard copy files into a PDF. If you don’t have a USB thumb drive, ask them about emailing the files to you. Here’s the website for finding a FedEx/Kinko’s location near you http://www.fedex.com/Dropoff/start?locale=en_US&appId=WFXK
- Other stores like the UPS Store or Mailboxes USA might have a scanning to PDF service. Check with them to see how they can help you.
- Most desktop scanners (as in a scanner that sits on a desk) that are available for purchase have software that can convert scans into PDF files. If you have a friend who has a desktop scanner, ask them if the scanner will scan to PDF files. If you go to an online store to buy (like amazon.com,) type in “pdf scanner” into the search box. If you go to a “bricks and mortar” store to buy (like Staples or OfficeMax,) ask the customer service associate for a scanner that scans to PDF files. Follow the directions of the scanner once you locate and/or buy one.
