Scanning, Digital Archiving & Services

Have a treasured print you want to preserve in digital form? No problem, our scanners can handle prints up to 8.5"x 11" in size. However, don't worry if you have a larger print, we have the ability to copy photos larger than 8.5"x 11", it just takes more work (check out "Digital Copy Photo" listed below). Also, we have bulk rates available for 30 prints or more.

Many of us have a box somewhere at the back of our closets filled with old negatives and slides. Some of us were avid documenters of our family life, others just inherited the work of loved ones. Either way, they days of being able to handle negatives and slides are slipping away. The time has come to scan that at least of few of those momentous images and we can help!

Times required for each photofinishing service depends on the store location and work load. For a listing of store locations, contacts and phone numbers please visit locations or contacts.
