Corinne, San Diego, July 11 2018 — With the big fire that just raced through the community of Alpine where I have worked at the elementary school for 30 years, my heart is broken for my friends who had no time to gather any belongings before they evacuated to safer ground. For those that were lucky enough to come out of the hellish inferno with their homes still intact, many of them had major smoke damage to everything including photos and camera equipment and computers. I will do my best with the pack of your business cards I have to spread the ScanMyPhotos word so everyone becomes as prepared as I now am when they have to face wildfire, water or smoke damage to photo memories they had no time to save. I can’t tell you how many tearful families in Alpine are now without years of precious memories of their kids, families and loved ones. I am thankful every day that I found ScanMyPhotos after the devastating Cedar Fire in 2003. It took me awhile to complete my digitizing project, but the peace of mind I have now is priceless. Thank you so much for your amazing and companionate service and employees. I’ll spread the word.

Alicia M, May 31 2018 – Excellent service

LOUISE C, May 25 – Scan My Photos gave excellent directions on how to prepare photos for mailing. The process was very easy. They sent an email when they received the photos and updates as they were working on the order. I received the DVD yesterday and am very pleased with it.

Melissa R May 24 – Good price and great service. Plan to use them again in the future!

Barbara B.May 18 – Would recommend them. they did a great job…helped me get rid of ‘tons’ of photos.

Margaret H. May 16 – A Plus operation

Tina S. on May 9, 2018 – SMOOTH SAILING

Audrey on May 9 – They provided quick service and good quality product. They emailed me when they received my photos and when they started scanning them.

Darin L. on May 7 – Awesome

Bill W.on May 7 – Delivered exact product as described. Customer service easy and quick.

Bob C.on May 2 – It’s scary to send photos off, but ScanMyPhotots acknowledged when they got them, verified my order, gave me an estimated of completion, told me when they started the scan, when they were shipping them back, and returned them in the same shape as I sent them. It took 26 days (incl weekends) from receipt to send date, a little over their estimate, but close enough for me. I had some photos that were fairly washed out, and a few that never had good color to begin with, so I opted for the photo soap add-on. It improved those colors a lot, so that’s another worthwhile option. Very satisfied, and would recommend them to anyone who doesn’t want to sit for hours by their scanner.

Sheldon H. on May 2 – They were very helpful and contacted me when I did not provide all the documents needed to process my pictures.

Two weeks later I received my pictures and DVD, as promised. The work was absolutely impeccable and exactly as I hoped. The DVD opened with no issues and I was able to save the digitized photos to my computer. I saved so much time using this service over scanning the photos myself; I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Gloria A. on Dec 10 – My photos I sent to put on a stick turned out beautiful, I only had 1 reject which was awesome. I totally under stand why the 1 would not work because it had a very hard backing already on it so it was too thick to be scanned. They send me a DVD [data disc] which was great and I love it. Pictures seem to be a little enhanced for great color. I had put them a order I wanted them to be scanned. Thank you

Jan P. on Dec 10 – Sent my photos in, got back all of my photos in a few weeks along with the DVD. The photos were in the same order.

Corinne L. on Aug 13, 2017 – I had been focused on getting all 35 of my photo albums scanned after the Cedar Fire in 2003.

Robin U.on Apr 4, 2017, Simply easy, fast return, great quality!

M. S.on Apr 4, 2017, The merchant is helpful and gave me all the info. I needed. The results are good. Also, the Thumb Drive has a large key shape with a big cover case. My other Thumb Drives are small with equally small covers and all can hang on the same chain. The ideal is in an emergency I grab the chain and get out.

Lorraine E.on Mar 26, 2017, Order was processed quickly and customer service reps were very helpful with questions.

Melanie H.on Mar 22, 2017, The turnaround time was quick, DVD and flash drive is great. The flash drive looks like a key, very cool. Will use them again in future.

Linda S.on Feb 25, 2017, Great company Great job

Carolyn M.on Feb 24, 2017, Love the results! Both OLD black and white and photos from 1980-90 were included So glad I paid the additional for the photo index book! 1000 photos is still a lot to search through so using thumb drive and index book was wonderful!

Terry L.on Feb 12, 2017, The directions were very clear once I printed them out. Love all of my pics being in one place. A really cool thing that I did not know is that for additional charges I could have done all sizes (not just 4×6, and have had them all turned the same direction. Oh well, next time.

Maja L.on Jan 11, 2017, The customer service is excellent.

Barbara S.on Jan 11, 2017, Although I have not yet received the results I can say that Scan rep has been more than patient and kind with my lack of paperwork due to an errant printer. If such care was taken then, I am confident that my photos will be perfect.

Debra S.on Dec 26, 2016, Excellent quality, quick turnaround, well worth paying extra to have them rotated right side up.

Michael R.on Dec 23, 2016, Pictures can back on a dvd that was readable. All pictures were returned. Turnaround time was exactly what they stated. Great deal.

Karen C.on Dec 18, 2016, I can tell you that I was really worried about sending my one and only pictures to some address or place I didn’t know. Guess what! They came back and were done perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks, KC

Lisa Y.on Dec 17, 2016, I trust this company with my treasured photos (3000 so far!). I have sent several orders and all have been perfect! I got my sister on the scan my photos bandwagon and she is now using them even with our heritage photos.

Michelle on Dec 13, 2016, Thoroughly impressed with their communication of my precious photos- from when they received them to scanning to returning them. They also did a fantastic job packing them back up and the CD was well done. I might suggest 600 dpi vs 300 dpi if you want them enlarged when you view them. A little grainy enlarged but smaller seemed fine to the naked eye. Have not tried to utilize calendars or anything yet. Thanks for taking care of my irreplaceable photos!

Shannon A.on Dec 10, 2016, I forgot to send my order form with my pictures. They were very helpful in clearing it up and getting my order processed. The customer service is fantastic.

Nancy K.on Dec 7, 2016, My DVD came out great!! It took about 10 days altogether. Well worth the money!

Clark C.on Dec 3, 2016, Telephone interactions were well beyond expectations. All representatives were intelligent, professional, literate, and kind. Although it’s too early to have received the returned product (and our photos back), as of today, from all experiences before sending our photos off to them, I have no hesitation in highly recommending anyone to do business with Very impressive.

Stephanie L.on Dec 3, 2016, Fast service, Scanned photos look good.

Elizabeth P.on Dec 2, 2016, Love them and their work

Doug L.on Dec 1, 2016, Scans look great. Price was great also.
Dayle M.on Nov 22, 2016, I like the many choices for different picture groups. Good service

Pam K.on Nov 20, 2016, The service was very fast and the scanned photos are very nice. However, I packaged my photos in groups all rubber banded together thinking they would scan them sequentially and they are all over the place. should have paid extra for the scanning that keeps photos in order. My fault, I guess.

May Y.on Nov 19, 2016, Great service and great quality. Thanks a lot!!!

Tish A.on Nov 15, 2016, Easy to work with. Quick turnaround.

Diana C.on Nov 10, 2016, Awesome service and fantastic results!! Well worth the price and much cheaper here than any alternative.

Jackie O.on Nov 8, 2016, Excellent service, great results, great communication with their customers.

Robert R.on Nov 3, 2016, Faster turnaround than expected! Scans came out great!

Laurie D.on Nov 1, 2016, It was such fun to watch the pictures in a slideshow and know I’ve captured a good sampling of my children’s lives thru pics. It was great the vendor sent several emails letting me know they received my precious pictures, were processing them and then sending them home. Package rec’d was well packed.

Maryann G.on Oct 31, 2016, They keep you informed along the way to put your mind at ease about your precious photos, thanks!

Teresa A.on Oct 24, 2016, They are very good at keeping me informed as to where my priceless photos are in the process. That is very important to me.

Ian F.on Oct 16, 2016, I have now sent my 5th scanning package to ScanMyPhotos. Every set has been scanned perfectly. The turn around time is shorter than promised. They also have helpful support as I found out when I inaccurately filled out the form. I found the old photo prints were useless as I couldn’t find one when I wanted it, the scanned versions save that problem making finding pictures a breeze! I highly recommend ScanMyPhotos, you can pay a lot more for this service, but you get more for your money. Note that I have the high-resolution scan option added, 600 dpi scans come out great. I’m amazed I had collected 5000 photos.

Marilou L.on Oct 10, 2016, They always let you know when your photos arrive, when they are working on them, and when the CD is on its way to you. It really gives you faith in them.

Terez H.on Oct 4, 2016, I received my photos and disc in a timely fashion. I recommend this service to anyone who wants a myriad of photos digitized quickly and easily.
