How to Pack Photos for Scanning & Shipping to ScanMyPhotos


Get out your shoeboxes and storage boxes packed to the gills with photos of friends, family, and long-ago events, and we’ll preserve everything for you on an archival DVD.


Our popular prepaid photo scanning service allows you to choose $145 for 150dpi (social media), $259 for 300dpi (archival) and $299 for 600dpi (professional) resolution photo scanning.


After you place your order, we’ll send you a prepaid box that you can fill up (on average, the box will hold about 1,800 standard photos). But before you do that, please read our guidelines for how to prepare your photos for scanning.


All work is completed onsite at our corporate headquarters in Irvine, California and handled with the greatest of care by trained professionals.
