Excerpt: Scan your photos

One of these days, we’re going to free up space in our apartment by having all our photos scanned.



Several years ago, we sent a box of photos to ScanMyPhotos. They not only scanned them, but they also improved them. Which was good, because some were pretty faded. The problem is, we didn’t save any storage space because we kept the originals they sent back to us. Parting with those is the tough part.


However, it’s much better to have the digital version. The print versions sat in boxes, unlooked at for years. As soon as we had them digitized, Joy began making her relatives’ day by emailing them every so often. Her nephew’s new bride was especially happy to see what her husband looked like, back in the day. The cost seemed trivial.

Since sending out that box, ScanMyPhotos has a new offer: one cent per photo scanned. One customer sent in 9,100 photos. It cost him only $131.60. The catch: The photos are “social media quality,” 150 dots per inch. That’s fine by us. Good enough for email. TO ORDER.

4 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Grandparents Day

When “AARP The Magazine” wrote about photo scanning and its several profiles on ScanMyPhotos, and listed us as a top tech gift, it launched a crusade – advocating that readers should start thinking about genealogy, preservation of memories and sharing photos for today’s all-digital world.

But, the challenge was how to embrace technology to affordably archive and preserve shoeboxes of family photos. This story from one of our most beloved customers explains why this day is so emotional and a reason to celebrate

4 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day Scan My Photos Offer

Give Your Grandparents the Gift of Photo Scanning on Grandparents Day.

Grandparents Day is just around the corner, falling on Sunday, September 8th this year. To celebrate we pulled together some fun facts that you might not know about the holiday. We’re also topping them all off with one general fact about grandparents that may help you give them the best gift ever.


When it comes to Grandparents Day, did you know…


  1. There’s an official song. The U.S. has an official Grandparents Day song called A Song for Grandma and Grandpa, by Johnny Prill. We wouldn’t expect anything less for the two people who always make sure the grandkids have plenty of hugs, candy, and fun.
  2. There’s also an official flower. Forget-Me-Nots are the officially recognized flower for Grandparents Day. While the flowers’ namesake is a nice sentiment, there’s one small issue—Forget-Me-Nots typically bloom in the spring, but the holiday happens in the fall. Not to worry though, Grams and Gramps will be more than happy to receive any type of flower that’s in season. It is, after all, the thought that counts.
  3. This U.S. holiday is almost 40 years old. President Carter designated the first Grandparents Day on September 10, 1978. His goal was to encourage all citizens to plan activities that will recognize the many contributions grandparents have made to our lives. Pretty sweet, huh?
  4. The holiday always lands on the Sunday after Labor Day. This nifty little fact makes the holiday a bit easier to remember. Combine this factoid with the official flower, and it should now be a breeze to remember when Grandparents Day happens each year.

ScanMyPhotos Scores With Penny-Photo Scanning

Here is the latest news profile on one cent photo scanning. Click here to view online.

Excerpt reposted from the original article written by Gary Pageau, Dead Pixel Society:

onecentNEW 300x200 - ScanMyPhotos Scores With Penny-Photo ScanningLongtime photo industry entrepreneur Mitch Goldstone knows the value of PR and publicity. Whether it was starting out as a one-hour processing lab and boutique photo store in Irvine, Calif., and later pivoting to bulk photo digitization services, Goldstone has been able to gain national attention from influencers like David Pogue, Jefferson Graham, and even OprahThe New York Times, USA Today, Huffington Post, and numerous other national consumer press outlets have boosted the business of ScanMyPhotos.

In fact, it was a mention on the Oprah Magazine website that kicked off the concept. Citing the “Oprah Effect” – where enormous attention is paid to small businesses mentioned by the superstar – Goldstone decided to try the one-penny per scan offer after more than 3,700 people took tried the initial 1-cent promo. Of course, there are caveats: The scans are “150-dpi social media” quality, with higher-quality scans available for an upcharge. (Additionally, rates were cut in half on 300 and 600 dpi photo-print scans, which are now respectively 8 and 16 cents per image.) Other upcharges include same-day scanning and instant uploading. “Same-day scanning and instant uploading” means the same day the order is received, it is scanned and uploaded.

“We beta tested this to refine the process,” says Goldstone. “It took five or six weeks. The average order now is 4,800 photos, whereas before, the number was a fraction of that. That means, with pricing that low, people can finally digitize all of their photos.

IMG 9652 300x187 - ScanMyPhotos Scores With Penny-Photo Scanning “The number one question we get is, ‘what’s the catch?’” he adds. “We have gotten nothing but positive responses. We have people sending 4,000, 5,000, 7,000 photos; 7,000 photos is $70. The hope is they engage and share. The lesson for everyone is to cut prices and use the goodwill you get from it as advertising.

ScanMyPhotos does no advertising. I’ve had people ask about an affiliate program, and I respond, ‘How do you do an affiliate program when you charge a penny?’”

As a promotional opportunity, Goldstone says this is the most significant promotion since David Pogue featured ScanMyPhotos in the New York Times. “That put us on the map,” he says.

“The whole point of business today is to dazzle customers so they tell the world,” explains Goldstone. “I did Facebook and Google ads years ago, and it was like a drain. No matter what budget I put into it, the money just disappeared.”


Goldstone says he was inspired to try the promo based on what he saw Google Photos doing (offering free low-resolution storage and paid high-resolution storage) and through customer feedback. Eighty percent of customers are using their scanned images on social media sites, like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, where high resolution is not necessary.

The next innovation popular with customers is the same-day scanning service. “There is no reason for people to wait months to get their photos back, with today’s technology and efficiency,” says Goldstone, noting return shipping can be done on a budget, too. If the customer’s photos are scanned and uploaded right away, they aren’t in a hurry to get their prints back.”
