What You'll Receive & How You can use Your Scans:

Imagine handing your spouse, children, or even grandchildren, a disk that contains the family legacy preserved in digital form. Our silver scanning service is designed to do just that, help you preserve and enjoy the family photo collection digitally.

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. Compact Disk - CD-Rom LogoOur 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.

DVD-Rom LogoOur 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. 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 today.

Turnaround Times: How Long Does the Scanning Process Take

Our 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 request. 1-800-383-2903

Scanning 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.

Expedited RUSH service is available for an additional fee.
Please contact us to discuss your project if you're in need of expedited service.

Photos or Negatives: Is it better to scan photos or scan negatives?

Will 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 prints and photo albums is a great alternative.

Customer Comments and Reviews:

Walnut Creek, CA
Thanks for all your good work on my 40th Anniversary order. I really appreciate being able to send you my treasured family photos and know that you will take good care of them and produce a CD that enables me to work with Kodak Easy Share Gallery to publish a memorable photo book.
Thanks again.

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! Thanks again.

Aztec, NM
THANK YOU FOR A MARVELOUS JOB! This is my first experience with
transferring images to a disk, and I'm more than pleased with the outcome.

Fredericksburg, VA
I rec'd my CD today, thanks for your rush on this non-expedited order.
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! Thanks again,

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.

Hamilton, OH
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.
Great work!

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!
