I do something similar, but with automatic text recognition. Check out Scan2PDF. They offer an OCR plugin for around $200. If you scan at 300 dpi, the OCR works really well. It creates a transparent text document on top of the scanned image. The added bonus is that everything is stored as PDF, and searchable by Google Desktop, etc.
