A reasonable way to scan older photos

It’s a great deal; especially if you consider how much time it would take to scan your photos yourself. This is the second time I’ve used their services.

I was notified when my pictures arrived and also received an update as to the status of the scanning job. Very professional operation.

2nd time ordering because I was pleased with the first order and companies policies.
February 26, 2015


Their instructions are very efficient and explain things very completely. Just follow their instructions and you won’t have any trouble at all. It does take a little while for the order to be completed, but they sent me an e-mail when they received my package, another when they began working on it, and yet another when they sent me the completed order. Everything arrived in good shape, including all the pictures I had sent them for scanning.
February 25, 2015


I highly recommend this business for digitizing photos. Great service and a wonderful job.
February 20, 2015


Read and follow their instructions for shipping and additional options carefully. They do a great job and I was very satisfied with the results.

Fast service with good picture quality
February 05, 2015


Make sure to read the organization tips prior to sending – I’m sure it makes the process go a lot quicker – I got mine back really fast
February 04, 2015


Follow their packing directions carefully and it should all go smoothly.
