Slide  & Negative Scanning

We offer a very popular slide scanning service that is affordable and gives great quality. For customers wanting a negative scanning service, no problem, we do this too!

Slides and negatives rarely get seen unless they are digitised. If you have any hidden away and perhaps forgotten what memories they contain, let us help by scanning them for you. We have many delighted customers who can now view their digitised slides whenever they like. Be able to share the memories is such a bonus.  See our FAQ's for slide sizes.

Turnaround times

Turnaround times will depend upon the size of the order. Both slides and negatives are slow to scan if we are to extract as much detail from the images as possible. There will also be quite a bit of post processing that is required to clean up the scans. As a guideline, a scanning project for slides and negatives will normally be between 1 and 3 weeks from receipt.

 We will give you an indication for completion of your order on the email we send confirming your order has arrived with us.

Your original photos and digital scans are saved to either DVD(s) or USB(s) and are returned to you immediately payment has been received via BACs transfer. Details for payment are included on the bottom of the invoice sent to you on completion.

If you have a special occasion looming and need scans completed within a particular time scale, just contact call us to discuss your order deadlines or put in the special instructions box on the order form.
