ACF 1791: 1DollarScan brings Japanese bookscanning trend of "Jisui" to U.S. readers


The World’s Most Affordable And Advanced Book And Document
Scanning Company Exhibits High Quality Scalable Technology Solutions
At The VISIT JAPAN EVENT In San Francisco February 9th And 10th

1DollarScan, an innovative service offering the world’s most affordable and advanced book scanning technology, has begun to bring a widespread Japanese phenomenon called “Jisui” to customers in North America. Jisui, which literally means, "cooking one's own meals," gained widespread popularity in Japan as book readers would often cut and scan their own books to make them adaptable to eReaders. The term has become the official Japanese buzzword for book scanning. 1DollarScan, which is based Silicon Valley, CA, seeks to bring this trend to the United States and has turned ‘Jisui’ into an American service suitable for all books. 

More information on 1DollarScan’s services is available at: http://1dollarscan.com/works.php.

1DollarScan will exhibit at the 2013 Visit Japan Event in Union Square, San Francisco on Saturday and Sunday, February 9th and 10th to represent its cutting edge scanning technology. The Visit Japan Event is presented by the Consulate-General of Japan in San Francisco and the Japan Tourism Agency and showcases a variety of Japanese food and beverages, fashion, culture, cutting edge technology and more. More information on the Visit Japan Event is available at: www.japantravelinfo.com/sfofes.

1DollarScan has become a popular scalable solution for readers that cannot find particular titles in a digital format. Many books are often out-of-print or not yet available to read digitally. 1DollarScan already enjoys a sizable contingent of Japanese customers in the U.S., where they scan an array of Japanese books and manga comics for non-English customers. Many Japanese readers that were familiar with Jisui when they lived in Japan have found 1DollarScan to be the only company offering a Jisui service in the U.S.

1DollarScan also looks to widen its customer base to include mainstream English readers and has become the first company in the U.S. to offer a monthly membership program for book and document scanning with a variety of free features with no long-term commitments to the customer. The company is also seeking partnerships with a wide range of literary and trade publishers looking to establish or augment their digital presence. 

1DollarScan’s regular price is $1.00 for 100 pages (which constitutes “one set”). A newly launched Platinum Lite Membership costs only $14.99 a month and includes basic scanning plus many extra options such as free OCR (Optical Character Recognition), enabling users to search their book digitally after it is scanned, a Book Title Option, a Magazine Option (allowing magazines to be scanned), and a free Express Service for 10 scan sets (a $62.00 value). The Platinum Membership is designed for larger orders includes the same benefits as the Platinum Lite Service and runs $99.99 a month for 100 scan sets (a $620.00 value). Membership orders are generally completed and delivered to customers in 5 to 10 business days.
