Scanning Photos, Film, Document
Consult us about a variety of scanning options tailored to meet the service you need in a cost effective way.
If your photograph or film is within a certain shape we'll scan it in Low-Cost Scan using high capacity commercial scanners
for the lowest cost and the fastest way without compromising the image quality.
If your original doesnŐt fit our scanners or your job requires defined specifications, we'll process it in Custom Scan.
If your original is in an odd size or shape we'll digitize it in our full scale Studio Work.
We scan all film, photographs, documents, 3-D objects, grand format art images. Pro Image scans better, faster, cheaper.

Price example of Picture-Reproduction scan:
Don't have the original file or negative for the picture you want to reproduce? No problem. We'll scan your picture.
When we reproduce a picture we must scan and adjust settings to match our photo paper emulsion.
Therefore our scan procedure involves extra labor in three levels. Tell us how much critical color match you need. 
▪ Standard Level Picture-Reproduction Scan 1 original/3+/10+50+ $10/$8.5/$7/$6
> Most popular option due to low price and quick turnaround. Limited to color originals sized between 2"x2" & 8.5"x14".
▪ Advanced Level Picture-Reproduction Scan price is determined by time spent $20 or more
> Scanning a picture or film for reproduction of giclee prints or large format prints. 
> Scan work required to fit a certain size such as in filling out a document form.
   A locket print including scanning the original costs $30, optional installation into the locket is about $10.
> For other critical color reproduction, our graphic specialists will handle the scanning for the deepest details.
Please note Picture-Reproduction service prices don't include the print price. Add the print price shown p.4 or p.5.
We'll save the file onto a USB drive only if customer provides or purchases one at time of the scan order.
