Shoebox Scan packages offer an economical solution for scanning volume archives of photographs. We offer six packages at various quantities. Choose the package that corresponds to your quantity of originals. Files are delivered on a DVD Data Disc for printing or viewing and editing on a home computer. We can scan originals from wallet size to 8.5 x 11 inches. Files will be jpeg 300dpi at the original size.
Prepare your photos in bundles as follows:
• Prints must be loose, not in albums.
• Stack originals from smallest to largest facing right side up.
• You may use index cards to divide and sort your photos, and if you label the cards in numerical order, we will scan in that order.
• Scanning is done backwards: bottom of stack feeds first with photos stacked face up.
• Tape, glue, torn photos, polaroids or mounted prints will not feed through this scanner.
