Chalk one more up for the battle against repetitive stress disorder—E-BizDocs offers digital Bates stamping.
Surprisingly, hand stamping still goes on these days. Paralegals are stationed at a desk for hours smacking away at a stack of documents, imprinting the mark that prepare the documents for litigation. But in many cases, it’s the only choice for documents that only exist in paper form.
Our process can be applied both during scan and after, should you already have boxes of files scanned to PDF. We can generate a convention for the numbering based on your requirements, and return the output to you in whatever format best suits your company’s use.
What’s unique about the action of Bates stamping as opposed to simple organization and structuring, is that within each box (or set of boxes) the numbering system ensures a unique number for every document, and it is digitally signed right onto the image. The source image is reduced by 4% dynamically, leaving a gutter in which to place the Bates number so that the information on the document is not obstructed.
