Your photo collection is unique, and your investment in preserving it will be unique as well.
Your collection will likely contain varying sizes and conditions of photos and memorabilia, and we handle those objects with the individual care they deserve. We’ve invested over 10 years in developing our skills and we are continually looking forward to make sure we are creating the best possible result for our clients.
Essentially, this is a craft that requires skill, specialized tools and a passion for preservation. We’ve spent years investing and reinvesting in the technology and the knowledge to set your collection up for future generations to enjoy and appreciate. It’s time to declare: No more messy, moldy, dusty, damp boxes.
We are happy to talk with you about your photo collection or project and discuss a plan. This includes offering training for our clients that prefer a more direct, hands-on approach. Let’s start with a conversation and see if we are a good fit for you.
So many photos, so little time. You’ve got the photos and we’ve got the time, so let’s talk about your project and see how we can get this project off your To Do List.
For your digital photos, we can help you consolidate all your devices, hard drives and media, remove duplicates and redundant photos and create a new photo hub for you. We can even remove those silly screen shots. Then you can get back to enjoying your photos and you might not need to buy a new phone because you’ve run out of space!
For your printed photos, we can take your boxes, bins and albums and create a cohesive collection that will be easy to search and will certainly take up less space. We’ll organize, curate and place your items in archival storage all around the framework of the Client Survey that we create at the start of our work together.
This all sounds easy, right? Well not exactly…but you don’t ned to worry about that. We’ll do the heavy lifting for you. Are you ready to turn it over and finally get this project off your back? Who knew there were people out there that actually like doing this sort of thing, right?
It’s hard to put a price tag on this work as each collection is unique and while there are best practices that are a common thread through all our projects, there is custom work involved. So let’s start with a conversation to see how to get started.
We can create digital images from your printed photographs, negatives, slides, heritage documents, scrapbook pages, albums, letters, artwork and memorabilia. If you don’t see it on this list, just ask.
We do all digitizing and “scanning” using professional high-resolution cameras and appropriate lighting. You photos and other documents will not pass through a scanner with an automated feeder, so even the most fragile of your photos are safe. And it all happens right here in our shop. Your items don’t leave this shop unless it’s a specialized project that is outside our wheelhouse and it wouldn’t be without a conversation between us first.
Our goal is to provide you with the most future-proof result. We don’t want you to have to go through this process again. Our results provide you the flexibility for enlarging prints and creating those lovely full-bleed pages in your photo albums. If you’re looking for “just a quick scan,” we’re probably not the best fit. We automate with software when possible, but there is a level of human intervention and expertise that is required to produce the very best quality we expect. Our process and methods are not for everyone and that’s okay.
Along with your original images and materials, we will provide your digital images on a hard drive, thumb drive, or agreed upon cloud service. If you like we can provide additional copies as a backup or for family members.
Additional charges may be required for disassembling and re-assembling albums or storage containers.
Our scanning pricing starts at $300. This includes our initial setup and the first 150 standard-sized images (photos, slides, negatives). Images 151-999 are then $.95/image.
1000 + images are $.90 per image and there is no $300 fee.
Bulk pricing may be available for over 5000 images, so please give us a call to discuss your requirements.
This could be the ultimate goal of your photo collection. So after we’ve organized and digitized, we can now pull it all together into a custom book that tells the story of your family or maybe you’re finally ready to put that wedding album together. How about that amazing African safari trip?
Your photos, stories and written word are all individual pieces until you bring it together in a perfectly curated book. Let us help you bring it all together in a style that is timeless and beautiful. We can show you examples so you can start to imagine what your book could look like but know that it’s going to be unique to you.
This is another project that is difficult to attach a price tag. Let’s start with a conversation and discuss your project. We can schedule a Zoom call to get started and then we can show you some of those samples.
