The Shoebox Photo Scans Difference

  • All scans are done right here in your local community. No risking your items by sending them back and forth through the mail.
  • Priced right. No other company, Internet-based or otherwise, provides more at such a great value. No mailing costs either!
  • Personal attention. Assistance over the phone or in person.
  • Able to scan more types of memorabilia. You have more than just regular pictures. Some are fragile or torn. Some are newspaper clippings, kids' artwork, old family recipe cards, event tickets, immigration papers, photos in odd-sizes, albums, and more. You deserve to preserve ALL your history, not just photos in "scannable" condition. And you deserve to get it done with one company.
  • Hands-on organization services offered. (Currently not available in person.)
  • High-quality scans using trusted, state-of-the-art Kodak photo imaging scanners and technology.
  • Customizable scan options. Need a higher scan resolution for photos/items you want to enlarge, while using a standard scan resolution for the others? No need for a separate order. No hoops to jump through. Just let me know. It's that simple.
  • Fast turn-around times. Plus, no mailing time to factor in.​

IMPORTANT COPYRIGHT INFORMATION!

Getting Started: Pre-scan Prep - Highly recommended reading prior to scanning.

One Shoebox or Dozens of Shoeboxes? 
The more shoeboxes you have the better. Bring 'em on in! You're busy enough so why add more to your plate trying to do it all yourself or feel guilty about procrastinating on this project? I can get the job done and free up your time to do what you really want: time with your family; a massage; sleeping; dancing; cooking; exercising; karaoke; stand-up comedy; gardening; whatever your heart desires. 

It doesn't matter if you have a few hundred photos or thousands, it's time to take action to get those irreplaceable memories scanned and protected TODAY! With every option available, you have no more excuses to get moving on this.

Photos are our most important and irreplaceable connection to the past. Oral stories die out or get changed along the way. But the mysteries and stories of the past revealed in our photos never changes. They might fade due to time or the environment. However, the moment captured in that one second in time, even from a century or more ago, lives on, IF they are preserved! Scanning, of course, is the way to preserve your treasured memories. What’s the best way to do that?

  • Gather all your photos together.
  • Decide if you want to scan all your photos or just select ones.
  • Remove the photos from albums that can be safely extracted, or I can remove them for you (optional service) if you don’t have the time. Photos that can’t be removed can be scanned by the page, and if desired, each photo digitally extracted. Call or email for additional information, instructions and pricing for photo albums.
  • Sort the photos into categories if you like such as by person, years, theme, etc.
  • Bundle them up. See Scanning Preparation instructions for additional help.
  • Call for an appointment!

You will be enjoying your photos in a matter of days. They’re ready to share, give as a gift or create lasting memories through slideshows, photo books or other fun products.

​Behind every photo is a story. ​​​

It's time to preserve yours.
