DIGITIZE: Photos, Slides, Negatives, Documents
Eliminate duplicates – once they are digitized, each family member can have a copy of the CD with all the best photos and make as many prints as they wish. Put them in the order you wish to view them. Organize them into bundles for file folders if you’d like, and label them.
Our scanning process automatically eliminates much of the dust and scratches on your photos, restores faded and contrast, and includes basic enhancements such as red-eye removal. After scanning, we run each photo through some basic Photoshop correction – at no extra charge!
Once digitized, your photos are no longer subject to fading or tearing, or any one of many disasters that can befall them. Always keep an extra copy in a safe place.
Because copies of digital photos are exactly the same as the originals, you may make as many copies as you like with absolutely no degradation in quality. No more fighting over who gets to keep the family heirloom photos!
Once your photos are digitized, you can print them yourself on your own printer or take, send to a photo printing service, or have us send them to our lab. And because we scan at a high resolution, you can choose to make enlargements if you like.

SCAN PRICES: PHOTOS, SLIDES, NEGATIVES & DOCUMENTS
We have a $24 minimum price per order
Some people only need a few prints or slides or negatives scanned. We do charge a minimum of $24 to cover the cost of setup, disk, case, ink, etc. So look around and see if there are a few more you’d like scanned when you have a need for only a few items.
Prints & Documents – Color or Black & White
Price per photo (up to 8½ x 11″):
NOTE: We can scan photos much larger than 8½″×11″, but this requires special handling – call for details.
35mm, 126, 127 and 110 Slides
NOTE: Slides in a metal casing must be removed or incur a charge of $.35 each to be removed and replaced
Price per slide (mounted in a 2″ x 2″ mount):
35mm slide: This is the most common type of slide mount. The frame size (black area) while it can vary, is usually about 34mm x 23mm.
126 slide: This is the second most common type of slide that we scan. The frame size (black area) is about 26mm x 26mm. Now due to the aperture of the scanner, about 1mm is cropped from the top and bottom of these slides (blue area).
127 Super Slide: The frame size is about 40mm x 40mm. Most scanning companies will use the same scanner as they do for the 35mm and 126 type slides, which unfortunately will crop a significant portion of the top and bottom (blue areas) due to the aperture of the scanner. We, however, scan the entire image using a different process.
110 slide: The frame size of this is about 12mm x 16mm. Since these are obviously very small frames, we scan these at a minimum of 4000dpi. If you happen to have the small 110 30mm x 30mm mount slides you will need to buy 50mm x 50mm adaptors like this and place the small slide in them so we can scan them; one adaptor for every slide.
35mm, 126 and 110 Negatives
Price are per frame (not strip):
Kodak Disc Negatives (15 per disc)
These are scanned only at 4000dpi. All 15 images will be scanned: $59.50
Additional copies are just $8 each, in a jewel case, personalized with a title and picture you choose, printed directly on the disk, no labels to come off in your player! 2-disk jewel cases are $16.
Types of Print Scans: Our Kodak s1220 scanner is used for most print scanning. Occasionally we find a need to scan on a flatbed scanner. Old, delicate photos usually require flatbed scanning. If a photo is bent, oversized or on a thick mount, they will probably need to be scanned on a flatbed. Of course, we will scan all photos on a flatbed if you prefer.
Print Scan Resolution: Prints will be scanned at one of two resolutions and output to high-quality JPEG files for storage convenience. The resolution that you choose depends upon how you will be using your photos. For most uses, scanning at 300 dpi is more than sufficient to bring out good detail for pleasing images. If you plan to make any prints larger than 8×10, you may want to have us scan at the 600 dpi for maximum detail. Of course, the resulting files will be larger, and so fewer of them will fit on each disk. Tiny, wallet size prints should also be done at a higher resolution.
Slide Scan Detail: All scans are made with state-of-the-art Nikon scanning equipment. Prices shown include Digital ICE (dust and scratch reduction)*, Digital GEM (grain and noise reduction), exposure and color correction and rotation to correct orientation. Many of our competitors charge extra for these enhancements.
* Digital ICE is not available for use on black & white images and may not work properly with some Kodachrome® slides.
Slide & NegativeScan Resolution: For most consumer-grade films, scanning at 2000 dpi (dots per inch) will bring out more than enough detail to produce pleasing images. If you are going to be making large prints (greater than 8×10), we suggest that you have us scan at 4000 dpi. This resolution guarantees that all possible detail will be read from the slide, right down to the grain of the film, but of course will result in a larger file size, and therefore, fewer images per disk. We crop out the slide mount and rotate your images to their correct orientation – and all of this is included in our basic scanning cost.
Negative Scan Detail: Having your negatives scanned is much better than having the prints scanned as prints fade much faster than the negatives. When negatives are processed into prints there is some quality loss. When prints are stored in a photo album there is, over time, even more quality loss. Since the negatives were not handled as often and do not fade nearly as quickly as the prints, the quality of an image scanned from a negative will be much better than one from a print.
We require that negatives be in 2 to 6 frame strips. (Most processed film is returned by the film lab to you this way.) We must scan negative strips of film in their entirety. We cannot single out frames within each strip. We crop out the negative edges and rotate your images to their correct orientation – and all of this is included in our basic scanning cost.
Captions: If your prints are organized labeled, you may like them labeled on the digital version. Write lightly on the back of photos and we will add labels for 10 cents each.
Finishing: After scanning, each image is analyzed and corrected for basic improvement in color and levels, red eye reduction, and some dust and scratch removal. If you sort them into stacks, and label each stack, we will put them into digital folders for no extra charge.
Shipping: We ship via standard carriers: USPS, UPS, and FedEx. We do an online estimate of the exact cost of shipping by weight, and add only a minimal amount for wrapping, packing and mailing. We take every precaution to insure that your photos will arrive back to you safely.
Unlike many of our competitors, we do not send your precious memories to a third-world country to be digitized. Every order stays in-house, safe and secure, until the job is done and your photos are shipped back to you.
