Pricing for Scanning Services
A la Carte
With a la Carte pricing, you choose the services you need and pay only for the number of images we convert for you. These can be all one type, such as photo scanning, or a combination of digital scanning services such as photos, slides, and VHS tape transfers.
Batch & Save Photos
The Batch & Save package saves you money as soon as you have 700 photos or more. To give you an idea if you qualify for the Batch & Save option, one inch of photos equals roughly 100 hundred photos. This discount applies only to loose photos between 3x5 and 8x10 inches that have no jagged or curled edges and no glue or tape stuck to the front or backs.
To ensure no photo gets overlooked in our process, they must be separated into like-sizes in zip-top bags. For example, you would create one bag for 3x5 photos, one for 4x6s, one for 8x10s, one for Polaroids, etc.
NOTE: If you have 700+ photos and prefer to batch them according to year or event, which combines sizes of photos, you no longer qualify for the Batch & Save discount because of the slower processing time it takes.
Every image undergoes three levels of quality control for image rotation, cropping, and minor correction. The cost is a flat $350 for every 1,000 photos. The closer you get to 1,000 photos, the more you save—up to $150 over the a la carte rate.
IMPORTANT PREP NOTE: Please separate all photos that have something stuck to them. Common things that cause photos to tear or get stuck in a machine are: glue, tape, glitter, bits of string, wood, and foam cutouts. Anything that adheres to a card or photo needs to be handled with care to protect the item, and our equipment, from damage.
Box It All!
The Box It All! package allows you to box all of the items you want digitally scanned (not just photos) and let us do the sorting. No need to organize slides, photos, film negatives, news clippings, letters, greeting cards, journals, etc. Pull all your memorabilia out from under the bed, the closets, the attic, and the basement and hand it off to us.
This is a great option for those who have inherited homes or storage units full of slide carousels, boxes of photos, and collections of memorabilia that needs to be organized for distribution among family members. We’ll turn your disorganized box of memories into a magical digital history you can browse through on any computer, tablet, or smartphone and share with your family. Please contact us for an estimate. A ballpark way to estimate the price is to add 8¢ per item to the a la Carte rate.
