Bulk Print Scanning.jpg

Whether you need digital copies of your old prints or have an antique heirloom document that needs to be digitized, we have scanning options for anything you bring in. Using a selection of state of the art equipment, we can digitize and reproduce photo prints, newspaper articles, documents, album pages, artwork, slides, negatives and more. 

Scanning Prints

There are two options for scanning prints. Up to 8.5x11 size, prints can be scanned in an automatic batch scanner that is great for large quantities or they can be hand scanned individually on a flatbed scanner. Our auto scans produce digital files that look very close your originals and are good for prints of the same size or sharing on social media. Auto scans do not have color correction or retouching included so if your photos need a little extra love, choose our custom scan service. Custom scans are done individually and include professional color correction, contrast control and some spot removing to give you beautiful files that are ready for any project.

Small Print Scan Options (up to 8.5x11")
