FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2016
Our shop is currently closed. We are once again on the other side of the planet ~ as a result we have closed down our scanning services until we return back to the US. Thanks for visiting our site. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the photos of our journey.
New Services available in 2015
2015 brought a slight increase in prices - approximately 3 cents per image - our first price increase in over 10 years service. Additionally shipping rates have been adjusted to take into account shipping carriers price increases. Most of these increases are due to dimensional pricing for packages rather than weight only. You will only see these increases when they are incurred.
Due to the increase in very large orders from families as well as local institutions, we are controlling our order flow a bit more to ensure we meet our customer expectation in quality or service and attention.
Our site has been upgraded to a look and feel after the last version being in place for several years. The new version is "mobile" friendly and will not work as it should on smartphones or tablets.

Bonus Contact Proof Sheets Included with each order
Included with each order, you will receive a set of contact proof sheets for your order(max 10 hard copies). Typically these proof sheets will be grouped per group of slides (carousel, box, etc.). The images will have the file names for the corresponding scans, thus giving you an easy way to compare/match your scanned images to the original slides. You will receive PDF files of all the contact proof sheets.
Use the Contact Sheet to find images
See a scanned image and want to get the original? You no longer have to hunt and guess which box of slides the original is in. Just look at the contact sheet, see the box (group) number and image number and then go to the corresponding box. Typically the slides will be in the same sequence -- at least when sent back to you. Now that is a much easier way to find the original image!
Hard Copies and PDF files
The contact proof sheets will be provided to you as hard copies printed on photo paper (max 10 hard copies) and as PDF files on your data disc. This will allow you to print additional copied when you want to.
