Bates Stamping Service
Professional Document Annotation Service
Bates stamping is a method that marks PDF documents with a specific, usually numeric, identifier. Documents may be Bates stamped using sequential numbers, business notes, dates, or other identifying information. The identifier chosen depends on the reason for the annotation. Legal proceedings usually require all case documents have Bates numbers, so that all parties can easily reference pages in litigation.
Our PDF annotation service identifies individual pages within a document. This process helps teams organize business receipts, identify emails, and sort through the files during discovery for a trial. Usually, the operator scans each page and then applies the Bates number or stamp to each document image, in order.
