HOW DOES SHOEBOX SCANNING WORK?
Fill up a shoebox (or Tupperware container, cardboard box, a suitcase...) with as many photos as you can fit! Sort your photographs face-up and by grouping the same sizes together. Photos are scanned randomly in small batches according to shape and size.
You will receive your scans on a USB (original photo size @ 300 dpi).
Our Shoebox Scanning service is carried out in Dartmouth, but you may bring in your photos to either of our locations! We'll contact you when the job is complete.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH THESE FILES?
The possibilities are endless for your newly digitized photographs!
Print extra copies for your loved ones on our Lustre or William Turner/Smooth Matte Fine Art papers, easily create a personalized Photo Book or Photo Gift, and share your digital files on social media with friends and family - to name just a few ideas!
Photos are scanned in random order. If you would like us to scan your photos in a particular order: photos must be organized clearly and a minimum of $25+hst would apply as a set-up fee (we will quote on a case-by-case basis depending on level of difficulty).
Photos must be: unmounted and removed from albums, flat and free from any obstructions that may interfere with the scanning process (tape, Post-It notes, folds and tears, etc.) If the photograph cannot pass freely through our bulk scanner, it has to be scanned on a flat-bed and you will be charged for our regular Econo Scanning service (only upon your approval).
Unfortunately, prints that have been stored in adhesive albums with the clear peel away cover sheets or thick Polaroid and Kodak instant prints will not feed through the scanner. For these prints, we recommend our Copy & Scanning service.
