Did you know photos can fade or become brittle over time? Boxes of old photos contain wonderful memories, that should be shared with many generations. Our photo scanning service allows you to preserve those memories digitally by turning cluttered photo boxes into organized electronic memories to be treasured and shared. We output high resolution, properly rotated images at 600 dpi for photos and 2400 dpi for Slides. All photos are assigned numerical file names and will be delivered on a DVD with a printed title and a paper sleeve for protection. The photos will be view-able on computers with DVD drives. Don’t you want to de-clutter and organize your precious photos? Send us your photo boxes today and we will carefully scan and organize all your memories.
All scanning is done at our facility in Houston, TX and are always done by hand! "We treat every photo and slide with the respect it deserves" has always been our motto. We never use document feeders that could jam and possibly damage your photos.

We are sure you will support us in this obligation and support us in this regard.
