 Bulk Photo Scanning - Preparation


To preserve and protect your precious family photos please keep these tips in mind. In order to keep the labor at a level for us to provide the quality low cost bulk scanning , we require the you to batch your photos in groups of approx. 25 - 50 of the same size print.  Your photos are fed into the scanner as they are received by us – and without any sorting and arranging. Taking a little extra care with preparing your photos batches of 25-50  will pay off in lower labor costs.

Placing them into the same direction will cause them to be saved in that direction. For best results please follow the suggestions listed in these instructions.

  • Pictures of the same size go into the scanner without any sorting by us. You will need to sort the same-size photos, facing and rotated in the same direction, [please keep horizontal and vertical in separate stacks] Please put a rubber band around these loosely or put them in Zip-Lock bags to keep your sorted sizes together. 
  • Please wipe dust and fingerprints off of photos while sorting them. Dusty photos will often show as a streak when they are scanned. We do our best to catch these but we are not responsible for dust or fingerprints.
  • We currently scan photos 3.5" x 5" up to 8” X 10” with our bulk scanning service. Please do not mix sizes within the same sorted batch.* Very small photos sometimes will not feed through our scanner depending on the weight of the photo paper.  
  • While photos with minor rips and tears do well with our bulk scanners – photos with anything sticky on them not only gum up our scanners – they will most likely become ruined during shipping to us, as the stickiness will transfer to other photos in your order. Please do yourself a favor and don’t send them. Photos with tape or sticky substances on them will not be scanned. 
  • We do offer a service, where we clean the photo prior to scanning (so that it can be scanned), and then restore the digital image to the best it can be. We’ve had great success with most photos having stains, rips, cracks, etc . Check out our photo restoration page. 
  • Please note that photos will be saved in the direction the batches are given to us in, unless you select an optional service where we will manually rotate photos prior to scanning. We will re-band / package the batches, although the order will most likely be scrambled within each batch due to how they feed into and exit the scanner.
