You’re not alone if you have discovered boxes of photos and negatives or carousels of slides tucked away in a closet or basement. Or maybe you’ve inherited your parents collection who inherited from their parents. Now that you’ve found them, it’s time to create a plan to protect them. Let’s turn these amazing fragments of our history into something accessible and shareable.
If your photos and slides come to us with curation in place, we’ll use that structure to name your files and keep your organization in place. If there’s not a structure in place, we can help you establish one. Our goal is to hand back your photographic materials better stored and more organized than when you delivered them to us. Starting with organization prevents you from trading the physical mess for a digital one. We’ll even help you select the best archival storage for your printed photos, slides, negatives and memorabilia. In most cases new archival storage solutions occupy less space. So if you’re downsizing, you’ll see immediate results.
Digitizing slides is one of our favorite projects here at ScrapMyPix. Often times families have not seen these old slides in many years. With technology and scanning best practices we can digitize your slides so that you can view them with ease and start sharing all those fun memories. You won’t need the projector and the white refrigerator door to view them anymore! That’s what we used to do. Do they even sell white refrigerators anymore? With our specialized techniques and high resolution results, you will easily be able to print and enlarge your favorites.
The ScrapMyPix team does all the scanning and digitizing of your family photos, slides and negatives right in our shop, so rest assured they will be in good hands. We do not use any autofeed scanners here in our shop so even the most fragile of photos are safe. We use professional, high-resolution cameras and lighting to get you the best results. If you would like further restoration on images that we’ve scanned and polished, we can chat about the photos that need more work.
