your TREASURED PHOTOGRAPHS can TELL YOUR STORY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

DIGITIZE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TO SHARE ONLINE, MAKE PHOTO BOOKS, AND SO MUCH MORE!

Shoebox Scanning (bulk photo scanning) is a cost-effective service designed for digitizing large amounts of photos at one time. We offer quantity discounts and do all of our scanning in-house so you can trust that your precious memories are being handled locally with the utmost, personalized care.

For as low as $0.33 per image, we can scan both colour and black and white prints sized from wallets (no smaller than 2.5x3.5 inches) up to 8x12. Digital files are scanned as 300 dpi JPEGs at their original size and delivered via USB.

If you have larger prints or require higher quality scans, check out our Copy & Scanning service.

Turnaround time: 2-3 Weeks

Shoebox Scanning

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 sorted at random and scanned in small batches according to shape and size.

You will receive your scans on a USB (original 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!

PLEASE NOTE:

Photos are scanned in random order! If you want them scanned in a particular order or into folders: separate, organize and label your prints in an obvious manner (separated into labelled envelopes, etc.) Scanning in order will cost an additional $25 +tax.

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 scanner, we won't be able to provide you with that particular file or you will be charged for a regular scan via our Econo Scanning service (upon 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.
