So Which Service Do You Need for Your Photos?

With our loose photo scanning service, we use auto feeding scanners. These scanners are great for the majority of photos, but not all!  We have a number of flatbed scanners that we use for everything that requires a little more care.

Loose Photos from 10p

  • Everyday snaps e.g. family gatherings etc
  • Photos larger than 2 x 2 inches
  • Photos smaller than 8 x 11 inches (A4)
  • Standard photo thickness with nothing stuck to the back!
  • Photos WITHOUT sellotape, paperclips, staples attached   
  • Photos WITHOUT glue, bits of album pages, stickers or post-its etc on back side of photos

Flatbed Photos from 35p

  • Photos larger than A4, up to A3 or smaller than 2 inches 
  • Photos on card or in cardboard
  • Old and fragile photos needing extra care
  • Polaroids and odd shaped photos
  • Documents, letters, notes,  newspaper articles
  • Bigger than A3? We can scan in sections & seamlessly merge, e.g. old school photos. From £15

300 or 600 dPI Resolution?

Good question! Dots per inch (dpi) is a tricky one and very much a personal choice. Photographs normally have 300 dots per inch to make up the image.
Scan at 300 dpi & we replicate an original printed photo in terms of dpi and size if you needed to print. A 600 dpi scan has 600 dots per inch. Twice the size of the original photo. Great if you ever want to print a copy larger than the original photo size.
Our scanning process takes much longer to process at 600 dpi hence the increased cost.

300 DPI in Summary & Price:

Are you intending to save & view your digitised photos on a computer, TV, mobile device?  300 dpi should be more than adequate.

600 DPI in Summary & Price:

If you are archiving photos or intend printing at a later date - 600 dpi is probably the resolution for you.

Want Your Photos Organised in Folders?

We can do that! Simply put your photos into clearly named and labelled bundles and place in envelopes, plastic bags or secured with elastic bands. File names cannot exceed 20 characters. Longer titles will be shortened.

Folders with 50 or more photos in it are FREE.  49 photos or less will have a  handling surcharge of  £1.00 per folder added to the invoice once scanning has been completed.
