How Our Scanning Service Works

  10 Steps to Using Our Slide Scanning, Negative Scanning, & Photo Scanning & Digitizing Service

Let’s face it, converting your memories (slides, negatives, photos, and photo albums), into digital images is an important task that should be done correctly the first time by a reputable company with a proven track record that you can trust. We think it’s important that you get to know us, and our process when selecting a scanning service to digitize your valuables. We’re only a phone call or email away if you have questions.

2. Assess Your Needs: Choose from Three Service Levels


Your memories are important! Selecting the right options when digitizing them is important. We’re not a one size fits all scanning and digitizing service. We realize that Families with thousands of slides, or negatives have different needs than a Professional photographer, and that some of your Snapshots are more valuable than others. Our goal is to present you with three options and let you decide which one will best serve you. It’s a bit like shopping for a car - some people want the luxury Cadillac, some people want a safe and secure Volvo, and other people need a fuel efficient hybrid. Our service comes in three flavors, Silver - For Families, Gold - For Special Snapshots, and Bronze - For Pro’s. Learn more about these options below.
