We can make high quality scans of just about any negative you bring us, color or black and white, 35mm, medium, or large format. While 35mm negatives are the most common, 120, 220, and older or larger formats are no problem at all. We can scan your negatives and save them to a flash drive for archival purposes or we can make high resolution scans for purposes of making high quality prints.

Cost: 35mm Ready for digital use (email, slide show,social media, etc.): $0.50 each , 35mm Ready for printing: $5 each. 120/220 Ready for printing: $8 each. Have a bunch of negatives? Quantity discounts are available, just let us know what you need.

PHOTO SCANNING

We can also scan your family photos or albums of just about any size. Some people bring us only a few, others bring a whole box full. If you’re only wanting digital files of your photos then we can save them all to a disc (and even add to it over time as you find more photos), and if you want prints then we can also make those for you.

We scan most photos using an Epson V750 Pro scanner. For larger photos we photograph them using the same process as we do with our art reproduction services. 

 

SLIDE FILM AND TRANSPARENCY SCANNING

Just as with negatives, we can scan your 35mm slides or just about any size transparency. Whether you have a large number of slides that you want digitized to archive or you have slides that you would like printed in the highest quality we can help you. To get started get in touch with us and let us know what you have in mind. We can take it from there. Thanks to the Balzac Brothers green coffee importers for letting us use the awesome slide of the coffee truck!

Cost: Ready for digital use (email, slide show,social media, etc.): $0.50 each , Ready for printing: $5 each. Have a bunch of slides? Quantity discounts are available, just let us know what you need.

OUR EQUIPMENT

EPSON V750 PRO SCANNER

The Epson V750 Pro is a great, versatile scanner. We use it for scanning smaller prints up to about 8x10. This is what we mostly use when people bring us a box of old photos, magazines, or documents to digitize. We also use it for scanning 35mm negatives and slides when only a screen resolution is needed, meaning that you don’t want super high resolution for printing purposes, you just want to be able to view them and share them with family and friends.

NIKON SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED

The Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED is the “big brother” of the 5000. Whereas the 5000 is our go to for high resolution scans of 35mm negatives or slides, the 9000 is our go to for medium format film scans. It’s hard to find scan quality as good as this scanner does outside of significantly more expensive drum scanners. If you have medium format film you need scanned and you want the most detail out of it that we can get then this is the scanner we’ll use.

NIKON SUPER COOLSCAN 5000 ED

The Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED is a high quality, 35mm dedicated film scanner. This is our go to when you need high resolution scans of your 35mm negatives (color or black and white) or slides. It does a great job of getting detail and sharpness out of your film. Though they were discontinued back in 2009, they are still highly sought after and used by people who still shoot film or wish to digitize their old film from years past. That’s a testament to how good they are.

NIKON D810 CAMERA

The Nikon D810 is a professional grade, high resolution DSLR. This is what we use for all of our art reproduction services. We also use this when people bring us old photos to restore or archive that are larger than the Epson V750 scanner can handle (larger than 8x10). It also does a great job of digitizing 35mm negatives and slides at higher resolution than our scanners (though the don’t necessarily get more detail), so we will sometimes use it if particularly high resolution is needed from your film.
