Products, Pricing and Service Guidelines

Some basic guidelines of our slide, negatives and photo pricing are as follows:

bullet For scanning the original: $2.00 per each photo.  $0.75 per each slide and $0.75 per each image on a negative strip.  Bulk-rates available for large jobs!  For slides or negative jobs over 300 items (and a dpi of 800 or less), the bulk rate is $0.65 per slide or negative. For large dpi jobs where scanning slides and negatives at a dpi greater than 800, the cost is $1.50 per negative or slide and there is no bulk-rate discount on high-dpi jobs.
bullet Large-Format scanning: $7.50 per image or document.

            Services provided: We clean your slides and negatives to remove dust, then scan and digitally correct your slides or negatives (fade and color correction) so that they look their best!  We rotate them for proper orientation (if we can determine it), and for a slide show on DVD, provide various, tasteful transitions or (if you want) simple fades from one slide to another.  You may elect to use background music or not, or request songs of your own for a small, additional fee.  We have no minimum order! If you only have 5 or 10 slides, we'll do your slides for you.  Several hundred?  No problem, and you get a discount for any amount of slides or negatives over 300!  If you want your slides as image files on a CD or flash drive instead of (or in addition to) a slide show, that's not a problem either. You may provide a new (not previously used) flash drive or buy one from us. We stock 8 and 16 gigabyte SanDisk flash drives.  We can also make professional quality prints from your slides or negatives.  The largest negatives we can handle are 8x10 glass large format.

bullet Depending on the damage to the photo and how extensive the restoration, an estimate will be provided before any work is done.
bullet Sharpening, red-eye removal, color adjustment, contrast adjustment and other cosmetic or restorative work: varies per photo.  That will be included in the estimate.

            Services provided:  We must see your damaged photo(s) in order to provide an estimate on a digital restoration to you.  Therefore, you may call us to arrange a time to bring your photo(s) to us, to arrange for a pick-up or you can mail them to us.  Please call us at 360.943.7229 to discuss photo restoration with us.

               Video Photo Album Demo

The purpose of that demo was to give you an idea of what we can do in creating a photo album on DVD.  It was fairly basic, only using some of the more advanced transitions between photos.  The length of time a picture can be displayed can be varied greatly, as can the length of time that a transition between one photo and the next takes.
