The service

How it works

We collect, we scan & we return.

There is a bit more to it than that. But we worry hard so you don't need to.

1. Place an order

Choose from of our individual services or pick Custom Order if you need something different. Keep an eye out for our courier pack which should arrive in your next available post. If you are sending something larger than a shoebox (fits perfectly in our courier envelopes) we'll need to send you a shipping box.

2. Book your collection

For nationwide orders, pick a day and time slot for your courier collection. You can do this by emailing us. For local collections (within a 10 mile radius of Marlow) we'll be in touch via email or telephone. For London drop-offs (coming soon) we'll email you available time slots.

3. Sit tight

The moment your photos arrive at the Lab, you'll receive an email from us confirming their safe arrival. A couple of days after that, you'll get another email with link to view and download your scans.

4. Share, smile: repeat

Scaring relatives, shocking old friends, reliving distant fashion and admiring old haircuts, it all starts now. Enjoy, share and relive those memories. Your originals will be couriered back to you after five days.

You're a stickler for detail? We know.

That's why we wrote our "Photo-Scanning-101". It has everything you could possibly want to know about our service. Be prepared though, it is rather long.
