TWiP: The Importance of Scanning Your Memories

ScanMyPhotos The Interview: Discussing the New One Cent Photo Scanning and More


This comprehensive interview profiles the latest innovations from the world of photo scanning. Hosted by Frederick Van Johnson for This Week in Photo.


Mitch Goldstone of ScanMyPhotos.com joins TWiP to discuss the ins-and-outs of scanning in today’s high-tech world. Is scanning still relevant? What is the state-of-the-art? And what are some pitfalls that you should be aware of when choosing a company to entrust your precious family archives to.


After a recent Oprah Magazine recommendation, the company scored loads of feedback from their readers. That led to one cent a photo scanning. Scanned 4000 photos for $40.

CNET Photo Scanning Review on ScanMyPhotos

ScanMyPhotos.com Corporate Headquarters in Irvine, CAAfter digitizing 600 million pictures, and loads of national news profiles, this CNET review by Senior Managing Editor, Kent German is epic.


Everyone at ScanMyPhotos.com works so diligently to dazzle every customer and it is heartening to be recognized in this way.


Memories in a shoebox: Digitizing old photos unlocks a flood of mixed emotions. A weekend project to scan and safeguard hundreds of photos from the era of film was more than just an emotional journey, it showed how technology shapes our memories.



Excerpt:


The entire experience, from the customer service to speed with which my photos were returned, was top-notch and only took a week. If you have a box of pictures sitting around, it’s an easy way to secure them. If you’re pushing the 2,000-photo mark, go for the $145-prepaid box, which the company says will fit about 1,800 prints. If you don’t have that many, scans start at 16 cents each.

 


 

But by sorting and scanning old prints, I have the best of both the print and digital worlds. I still can leaf through my old photos when I’m feeling nostalgic, reminisce with my parents and embarrass longtime friends at milestone birthdays. Now, these mementos also live in the digital realm, and if disaster does strike, I know they won’t be lost forever.

 


 

Though I have a scanner, it works far too slowly (and I’m too lazy) to process more than a thousand photos (my husband contributed his own stash). So, I followed Sharon Profis’ advice and carefully packed a box with prints and sent it to Scanmyphotos.com instead. Just choose the scanning and delivery package you want, pack a box and mail it to the company’s office in Irvine, California. When your scans are done, the box comes back to you, along with electronic copies of your scans.

Why This 50 Percent Photo Scanning Discount Was Announced?

ScanMyPhotos corpoate headquarters in Irvine 300x138 - Why This 50 Percent Photo Scanning Discount Was Announced?Question: How to Memorialize Ten Years Since The New York Times’ Profile Putting Photo Scanning on the Map? Answer: Give You a 50%* Discount to Inspire You to Safeguard Your Lifetime of Pictures


Save 50%* To Professionally Digitize Your Lifetime Of Pictures Due To The New York Times’ Photo Scanning Review


674845401 - Why This 50 Percent Photo Scanning Discount Was Announced?


Why ScanMyPhotos.com designed this unique discount* to scan your pictures: Ten years ago David Pogue wrote “Your Photos, Off the Shelf at Last” in The New York Times (August 14, 2008) and helped put the world of bulk photo scanning on the map.


While commemorating the tenth anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of tin or aluminum, we are breaking with tradition. A metal alloy just doesn’t make sense for what happened on August 14, 2008, when the nation’s most admired tech columnist, David Pogue put us on the map.


Back then, the personal-technology columnist profiled ScanMyPhotos.com for his popular New York Times “State of the Art” column to identify the urgency to digitize pictures. Subsequently, it led to last month’s milestone as we digitizing our 600 millionth picture.


Background on David Pogue: the same year (1985) our CEO, Mitch Goldstone graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Business and Entrepreneurship Program, Mr. Pogue graduated summa cum laude from Yale, with distinction in Music. His next ten years conducting and arranging Broadway musicals lead to winning four Emmy awards, two Webby awards, a Loeb award for journalism, and an honorary doctorate in music. His resume is legendary. This 2015 example of his songwriting, singing and dancing in “CES The Musical,” is among our favorites.


Beyond his role as tech critic for Yahoo Finance, you can read David’s monthly columns in Scientific American and watch his science shows on PBS’s “NOVA.”  He’s been a correspondent for “CBS Sunday Morning” since 2002. And, spoiler alert, he is also the brains behind the Techno Claus beard. As a best selling author, we would need a supercomputer to tally all the tech tomes he’s written which are available at Amazon of which he’s sold more than 3 million copies.


pic6 300x199 - Why This 50 Percent Photo Scanning Discount Was Announced?Much has changed since that article. Last year, one billion pictures were destroyed by flooding in Texas. The advent of photo-sharing and storage apps created a safe home to preserve those pictures. The smartphone happened, yet missing were all those photo albums and shoeboxes of analog pictures not yet digitized. There are still about 3 1/2 trillion analog snapshots to digitize.



Better than cake, to help celebrate this ten-year anniversary, ScanMyPhotos.com created this unique discount towards our most popular photo scanning service.


To instantly save 50% on fill-the-box photo scanning, with free 3-way delivery and same day scanning, enter “POGUE10” as the promo code at checkout. Under “special instructions” at checkout, type “free same day scanning,” and your order will be digitized and prepared for return the same day it is received. Just spend over $199 to activate the discount (example, your final cost is just $99.50)


Many popular add-on featured services are also available at our regular, already low prices to enhance your experience.
