We can rescue those treasured memories! Just bring us the shoeboxes full of photos or slide trays full of slides and we'll scan the photos for you! Scanning can take a lot of time and effort to do it yourself, or it is really expensive if you have it done custom.
Until now... Our "Shoebox Special" is just the thing you need to get a lot of prints, slides or negatives scanned for not a lot of money. We will attempt to clean and use "Digital Ice" to clean the items being scanned, but we will not make heroic efforts or make any attempts at cleaning that may harm the original.
Choose the storage media: Memory stick, CD,DVD or cloud services like GoogleDrive or DropBox.
