Pixily – Go Paperless!

I have a filing cabinet filled with paperwork, receipts, warrantees, contracts, rental agreements, and more. I’m basically a computer person, and I love searching and instant gratification, so I’ve always wanted to scan everything in, and have a bunch of searchable PDFs that take up no physical space, and are easy to back up off-site. However, all I have is a small, slow, flatbed, single-side, scanner. Scanning in tons of documents isn’t viable.

Yesterday, i was reading Hacker News, and I saw a posting about a new startup called Pixily, that solved this very problem. You mail them documents, they scan them into searchable PDFs, send you back the originals, and give you the PDFs. I’m sold.

Then today, I found out that the company was started by the husband of a good friend of mine from Boston. So now you have two great reasons to use the service.

Check it out: Pixily!

    Thank you for your post on Pixily. I am one of the co-founders of Pixily and the husband of your good friend.

    Since we launched last Friday we have had a very enthusiastic response. The Boston Globe called it a “revolution in the mailbox”. Here is the article if you missed it: http://www.boston.com/business/technology/articles/2008/07/20/is_paper_piling_up_send_it_off_to_pixily/?page=full.

    Our goal is to help people realize the dream of going paperless and making all their information available at their fingertips. Hope you all join us in making this goal a reality.

    Get Organized, Go Paperless, Do Pixily
