Gold Scan Service Pricing: for Special Snapshots
What We Scan: Film & Media Formats
scan most any type of slide, negative, or photo. Our scanning
equipment can handle black & white or color slides,
negatives, and photos. Our standard pricing, (above,) applies
to the most common types of film and photo sizes. However,
many people have a few larger photos, and a few less common
types of slides or negatives. We call these less common
formats “special media” and
have separate pricing which is outlined
below. We understand that many people have no idea what
type of film they have. If you’re unsure don’t
worry. Feel free to send us what you have. We can then take
a look and contact you with details and specific pricing
before you commit to a scanning order.

What You'll Receive with our Gold Scan Service:
handing your spouse, children, or even grandchildren, a
disk that contains the family legacy preserved
in digital form. Our gold scanning service is designed to
do just that, help you preserve and enjoy the family photo
collection digitally while providing you top notch scans.
Your slides and negatives are scanned with premium Nikon
scanners and then saved as maximum quality JPEG
files that work just like the files your digital camera
produces. You’ll be able to view your scans on your
computer, email them, share them, print them, back them
up, and anything else you can do with digital photos.
After scanning we store your new digital images on Archival
Quality CD-Roms, or on high quality DataDVDs. Our
CD’s are made by the world’s leading manufacturer
of Archival Quality media, Mitsui/MAM-A. Their disks are
estimated to last up to 300 years.
DataDVD option is great if you’re digitizing thousands
of negatives, slides, or photos because they hold about
seven times as many scans.
Once your disks are made your order will be securely boxed
and shipped back to you via FedEx Express. You’ll
receive your shipments tracking number by email. When your
package is delivered by FedEx they’ll require a signature
for delivery, unless you specify otherwise.
After receiving your completed order and original photos,
slides, and negatives back, you’ll be able to store
an extra copy in a safe location, share
the family legacy digitally, and have fun
with your new “Digital Memories”. Learn
more about how the process works, or simply get started

Scan Service Turn Time Estimates:
turnaround times are better than most. However, many people
don’t mind waiting a few weeks to receive their order,
simply because their old slides, or shoe box of photos,
have been sitting in the closet for years, out of sight
and out of mind.
If you’ve read this far that old slide collection,
or shoe box of photos, is likely the first thing
you would rescue if there were a disaster,
fire, flood, earthquake, or hurricane. Out of sight,
and out of mind, is no place for something of such priceless
value to you. We recommend you place a box of slides out
where you’ll see them, or remove the shoe box from
the closet and place it where you’ll see it to remind
you of the importance of digitizing.
Once your valuables are in digital form you can always
make a second copy for storage in a safe location
or for another family member. Our turnaround
times do vary with our work load. Most orders are completed
in two weeks or less. We also offer RUSH service
for those with more timely needs. If you need rushed service,
or simply have a deadline to meet, contact us with your
Service Turnaround Times:
Orders of less than 200 images - One
to Two Weeks
Orders between 200 and 1,000 images - Two
to Four Weeks
Orders of up to 2,500 images - Three
to Six Weeks
Orders larger than 2,500 images may require additional
time to process.
Time in transit to and from our lab
is not included in these estimates.
RUSH service is available for an additional fee.
Please contact us to discuss your project if you're in need
of expedited service.
How and When do I Pay for my Scans?
Should I Scan my Photos or my Negatives?
scanning my negatives produce better results than scanning
the prints made from those negatives?
Many people have their original negatives and a set of
prints that correspond to those negatives. We recommend
scanning the original negative if you have the
option. Negatives contain much more detail than a typical
4x6 print from your local photo finisher. However, if you’re
like most of us we’ve lost or misplaced our negatives.
If we do have them they’re not as organized and may
be in poor condition. If this is the case scanning
your photos and photo albums is a great alternative.

Thanks for all your good work on my 40th Anniversary order.

Share Gallery to publish a memorable photo book.
San Clemente, CA
I got my scans yesterday - you guys are awesome! They are
done so well. I had had them done a couple years ago - paid
more than what you charged and it was soooo bad I threw
it all away. I'm also really glad to find out you're a family-owned
small biz. If you need references, you can sure use me!
THANK YOU FOR A MARVELOUS JOB! This is my first experience
transferring images to a disk, and I'm more than pleased
with the outcome.
I rec'd my CD today, thanks for your rush on this non-expedited
Prior to finding out about y'all (I live in Virginia) I
had a local shop, not an outlet, do this job, your work
is much superior to theirs. You can count on me as a loyal
customer, and I will be sure to tell my friends and co-workers
about your great work, I hope some business comes from it!
Port Jefferson Station, NY
Thank you for helping me compile approximately 1,000 prints
from my wedding. Having the prints in digital format has
made ordering reprints and sharing images with family and
friends so much easier! Your company provided OUTSTANDING
customer service from my first phone call, right through
emailed order updates and the careful packaging and shipping
of my prints and new DVDs and CDs. Thank you so much. I
have already recommended your service to friends, and personally
look forward to working with you again in the future.
Just wanted you to know that I received my slides and cd's
today. I have burned several cd's for my children so they
can have the collections also. I am so glad that I found
your business on line. They now will have 40 years of memories
of their growing up and the many good times they experience
through birthday parties, trips, school functions, and holidays
during their early years. Thank you again for helping me
accomplish something that I thought would never happen!
New York, NY
Thank you so much for the work on my slides from 1974. The
photos look beautiful
and bring back so many memories and the way you did the
contact sheets in the binder
is excellent. I will be sending more slides to you and will
recommend you to my friends and family.
Cedar Lake, IN
I received my pictures yesterday. I couldn't be happier...that
was just what I needed! I sat here and looked at pictures
from my beautiful wedding almost 5 years ago and I thought
of my husband for a good hour. I can't wait for him to come
home on R&R and see these too! (He is in Iraq right
now). I showed them to my daughter and she kept saying "Mama!!
Dada!! Look! Dada!" It was great and wonderful! Thank
you so very much again. I love them!
