How it works

  • Place your order today and you will be charged our minimum fee as a deposit which will be credited back to you once the order is complete (if applicable).
  • Be sure to include a copy of your invoice with your order so we can match up your order to our system. If not included, it may cause delays as we try to figure out who the shipment belongs to. This step is ABSOLUTELY necessary when the return address on the shipment does not match our customer records, as when shipped from a UPS store, for example.
  • Once received, we will contact you notifying you of its arrival.
  • Upon completion, your credit card will be charged the appropriate shipping charges and any overage beyond the minimum fee.
  • Due to swift changes in technology, your shipment must be postmarked within 30 days of the purchase date. If postmarked after, the pricing for our services on the day it is postmarked will be in effect.

Important Notes

Our scanners are set up to scan standard 35mm slides. If we receive 126mm mounted slides, some of your image will be cropped off the top and bottom while some of the slide mount will be scanned on the right and left. Similarly, if we receive 110 mounted slides, your image will be smaller with a large black border on all sides. We cannot alter this. See the image below for diagrams showing the crop and an example of what the scan looks like.

126 slide versus 135 slideSample scan from a 126mm slide
110 slide versus 135 slideSample scan from a 110 slide

Slides that are double mounted (see below) must be removed from metal mounts prior to submission for scanning. Any slide received still mounted in the metal bracket will not be scanned.
