Years of experience, turnaround in days
Digitising a photo is the easy part. You can do that on your phone, albeit at a snail’s pace and sub-standard quality. By choosing our service, you get so much more. And you won't be disappointed. Done correctly, you'll only ever need to do this once.
Firstly, we do have some pretty nifty scanners. They make flatbed scanning look like something out of the dark ages. Combined with professional software and a large dollop of lifetime experience that only comes when you have close to 5 million scanned photos under your belt.
Digitising entire family photo archives can be complex. Our speciality is keeping it simple.
However your photos arrive, we'll make sure they're kept in order and that each batch is decipherable from the next.
Photos are returned in order and are packaged beautifully, even if that's not how you sent them.
Courier collection from any UK address is included in our prices. We also have a London drop-off and collection point, by appointment.
Pack them meticulously if you wish, but the main thing is that they are securely and tightly packed for transit. Once digital, it's easy to organise them.
We scan photos and albums at 300dpi or 600dpi. You can read more about this here. Our slide scanners mean you don't need to choose. There's one option and it's the best physically possible.
We know your photos weren't all taken at the same time. Photo collections are sometimes amassed over multiple decades. Gathering them together can mean a team effort involving several people and different locations. We always return your originals in exactly the same batches and order as they arrive. Any photos in batches will be scanned in batches and returned to you in batches. You can use elastic bands, string, or even pop them into envelopes. If you write on the front of the envelope, we can even scan those too.
