Turn Your Photos into Digital Scans
When it comes to scanning photos, we know how to get the best out of a picture!
Our photo scanning service uses advanced scanners and software to give great quality scans. We can scan from the smallest photo up to A3 in size. Photos mounted on card or in a frame? No problem, we can scan these too.
For standard photos, we use an automated scanner but for larger photos and fragile or card mounted or framed photos, we use a flatbed scanner and keep handling to a minimum.
Our Photo Scanning Service
No upfront payment until all photos are digitised
Loose Photos - £0.10p per photo
Any loose photo that is larger than 2x2in up to 8x11in (A4) can be scanned using this service. No hidden charges, we will colour correct, check contrast and crop for correct viewing all included in the cost
Flatbed Scans - £0.25p per photo
Any photo smaller than 2x2in, or larger than 8x11in (A4). It is also the service that is needed for fragile or old photos or card mounted photos. These are best scanned on a flatbed with as little handling as possible.
