How to Find a Reliable Photo Scanning Service

reliable photo scanningResearch Before Starting Your Photo Preservation Project


It’s a nightmare scenario: you finally decide to save time and money by packing up and shipping your precious print photos to a scanning service to digitize but the photos disappear in transit. In fact, this actually happened to one of our customers, Irene S.


“In the process of scanning all my photos, I decided to try another photo scanning company. I live in Prescott and they’re in Phoenix (less than 100 miles away). I boxed up an order and sent it to the company, but three months later, I found myself at the point of filing a theft report. I called the company several times for updates but my calls and emails went answered. It was as if the company fell off the face of the planet and took all my photos with them! Then, months later, I opened my front door and the box of photos was back—it looked the same as when I sent it with no further information provided.”


Irene shared this story with us after the positive experience she had at ScanMyPhotos. She was exceedingly lucky to get those photos back.

Great service. Quality scanning
September 02, 2016


 

I am happy with the quality of the scans. Sent 775 pictures. I would do it again since the DVD loaded on my laptop easily and all I had to do was adjust the photos that needed to be vertical.

From the moment they received my order, they notified me of receiving it as well as each step in the process, including making changes or adding to the order with easy convenience. They are excellent in their customer relations.

The photos sent to me from ScanMyPhotos on DVD were of excellent quality, and I appreciated them emailing me when they received my order, then emailing me and telling me an update of when to expect my order, and lastly when they sent it out and when I would be receiving it.

Customer Comments, Reviews of ScanMyPhotos.com

 

 

ScanMyPhotos.com is great! I was nervous sending my photos all the way to California from Massachusetts as my photos are precious memories, scan my photos was great as soon as they received them they scanned them and I received my photos back within a week I sent them!! They don’t scan them in order, if you want it scanned in order you have to check the scan in order on the order form and it will cost you extra. This service is Great. I didn’t have to sit and scan all of my 2,000 photos by myself which would’ve taking awhile and now I have all my photos on a DVD and USB which take up less space then the 7 big photos albums I had.

Great service! Was very happy with them.
July 30, 2015

 

Excellent results! Cannot believe how nicely my 50-year old photos scanned onto the DVD. Also great communication from scanners while order was in progress. ScanMyPhotos has my trust! I will continue to use.

This service was very affordable compared to other local photo scan services. It’s important that the photos are the size specified. I had my measurements wrong, so I paid extra. But, still cheaper than doing it locally. Very nice, friendly staff.

It is a lot of work organizing and sizing, but the end result is worth all the trouble
July 17, 2015

 

I just uploaded the photos and was so pleased that they did my shots in “order” of years. I had bundled the photos into years of vacation photos and put an index card with dates on top. That was scanned and we followed in sequence. So happy that I did this…now I can eliminate a box of prints and just have the one CD!

Product Review: ScanMyPhotos.com

Excerpt: from David Friendler, LifeEdited.com

 

 

I still have an emotional attachment to these captured moments, but not a physical attachment to the paper photos themselves. I planned to digitize them long ago, but never got around to it. I finally decided to do it, using ScanMyPhotos.com – the decision based on a post I did about photo digitization.

Scanning the family photo collection

 

Excerpt from Jeri Danski, Unclutterer!

I have boxes and boxes of family photos (some from the 1920s) I’d like to scan in and put on CDs (is that a good way to save them?) and also put on a website where family members can access them and print out what they’d like to keep. How do I even get started? How do I organize the project? I’m overwhelmed just thinking about it.

 

Many people have happily used scanning services. Erin used ScanMyPhotos, as did a recent commenter, L. Charles. The company takes your prints, negatives and/or slides, does the scanning, and ships you back a DVD with those scans (along with your originals).

Save Your Family Photos from Disasters – Digitize Them!

Excerpt from Mom With A Prep:

Scanning Bulk Photos: “This option takes just a bit of faith, but my experience has been awesome, as well as others that I know. You can send a whole shoebox full of photos (of relatively the same size) to a company and have them mass scan them all for you for a single fee. It saves you TONS of time (because your time is valuable). They will send you back your photos plus a DVD of your photos scanned at 300dpi. There are companies like Scanmyphotos.com and many others….”

We partnered with Wells Fargo and asked several small-business owners to share the simple morning habits that help keep them positive and productive all day long.”

 

“Mitch Goldstone, president and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com, reviews the previous week’s orders and sends flowers to two dozen customers every weekday as both a thank-you gesture and a way of recognizing the memorial services, anniversaries and life milestones that brought them to his site.”

As mentioned in a previous post, ScanMyPhotos has improved the workflow for scanning photos by over 300% and the comments from customers have been overwhelming. Here are just a smattering of quotes regarding the ScanMyPhotos service, as gathered by an independent third party.
 

  • They did an awesome job. I went with the standard pixel and they turned out great.
  • Great & Fast Service. Did exactly what they said they would do. Working on getting another shipment to them soon.
  • When my daughter was a baby there were no digital cameras so I wanted to have all of her baby pictures converted to digital but didn’t know where to go to do this. …[S]ent them off and now I have all of those precious pictures saved on my photo website and have a CD with all of them on it. Takes a little time to go through your pictures and get them organized but so worth the effort! ScanMyPhotos did a great job with the scans and got my pictures back to me safe and sound.
  • They were good about sending emails at every stage of the process…when my order was received, processed, done and sent back to me.
  • I was very happy with the DVD’s and thumb drive that arrived with the scanned photos. I wish I had ordered additional index books to share with my children. Great job and well worth the price.
  • Be organized and the scans will come back wonderful!
