Negative Scanning: How It Works

 

Step 1: You Place Your Order

  • Using our order page, you specify the scanning service that fits your needs.

  • If using our pay-per-scan option, rough estimates of amounts of negatives being sent is ok! We will accurately count them as they are scanned and charge you based on our predetermined price list.

  • Upon receiving your order, we will email you a prepaid shipping label.

  • Choose from standard (we scan your order in 4-6 weeks) or express (we scan your order within one week of confirmation) shipping options. 

 

Step 2: You Ship Us Your Items

  • Using the box we provide (or your own!) package your items safely following our packing instructions.

  • Drop off your box at a UPS location. Your order will be tracked from the minute you hand it to UPS.

  • We will send you an email once we have received your shipment. 

  • We will handle the rest of the shipping for your order, ensuring that it arrives securely at our facilities

 

Step 3: We Scan your Items

  • We scan your frames at the resolution you requested upon ordering.

  • Each of your negatives are handled carefully and given the full attention from our trained technicians.

  • We review each and every one of your frames to ensure they are transformed at a quality that meets our high standards.

  • We will send you an email updating you on the process of your scans and notifying you of any issues that occur.

 

Step 4: You Download Your Items

  • Once our technicians have completed their scanning and thorough review of your items, you will receive an email with a unique link to download your digitalized negatives.

  • The link will be available for the amount of time you requested when placing your order.

  • Your link will allow you to download and saved your scanned images to your computer or mobile device.

 

Step 5: We Ship Back Requested Items Or Any New Formats

  • All negatives sent to us will be returned back to you, price included in original shipping charge.

  • If you requested a thumb drive containing your digitalized memories when placing your order, it will be sent along with your return of original negatives.

 

Step 6: You Enjoy And Share Your New Memories!

  • Once your order is complete, you can easily enjoy and share your digitalized memories with friends and family.

  • Your digital download and thumb drive will contain high resolution files suitable for enlargements and high-quality prints. Perfect for photo gifts, too!
