Frequently Asked Questions

Will my photos be safe?

This is the most frequent question we get asked and for quite obvious reasons. We understand how precious you photographs are to you and that is why we take the upmost care to look after them. We have not lost so much as a single photo in our time scanning people’s memories. It is also the reason we INSIST on managing the process of collecting and returning your photos to you. We have a great relationship with our couriers and with same time tracking and a single point of reference, we can be sure to keep your photos safe and sound.

Single box? How many photos is that?!

A regular sized shoebox will hold around 1000 photos. Don't worry about counting them. Quantities can vary depending on the size and style of photo but generally we don't have any problems with excessive packing.

How does the courier service work?

This is one of the things we really wanted to get right. Trying to time a collection from a courier should not be difficult but we hear stories all the time of missed deliveries, people taking time off work so they can be at home, only for nobody to show up etc. etc. We know how frustrating this can be. That’s why we have chosen a system where, following your order on the website, you will be sent a pre-paid, pre-addressed courier envelope in the post. This will have a phone number on it which you can call to arrange collection, at your convenience. This can be a work address, home address, or anywhere else you are going to be that day, so you can ensure you have your photo box with you, ready for collection.

Can I send you my photographs in a photo album?

No. We cannot accept photo albums due to the time it would take us remove all the photos. Our bulk scanning service is tailored to be fast and efficient and in order to keep our prices so competitive this would take up valuable time in our lab. Also, some photo albums make removal quite tricky so it is best that you do this yourself, carefully and place them neatly in a shoebox, ready to send to us.

What size of photos can you scan?

Our service is best designed for regular 6 x 3, 7 x 4 and Polaroid sized prints but our scanners can handle anything up to A3 sized images. We can scan smaller images too but if you have a lot of these it is best to contact us using the Contact Form so we can discuss the best options for you.
