Please contact us if you wish to use this service. Please contact us with your requirements for us to provide a competitive quotation.

Turnaround Time:

We can give you an estimated time when you ask for a price quotation letting us know your number of photos, slides etc. We  will be able to give a more accurate estimate when we receive your order. Factors which affect turnaround time are:

The amount of editing required for the project – some slides suffer more than others with colour deterioration and with mould contamination.

The urgency of the order. We can provide lower prices for very large orders when the timescale is relaxed – If we have to drop everything to do your order we may have to add a little to the quotation.

Professional level scanning editing large TIFF files. These files take more time to load and edit and consequently increase production charges and the time take for completion.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, professional service providing high quality digital transfer and editing at competitive prices. We are always prepared to discuss your slide scanning, photo, cine, video or audio project with you either on-line or by phone.

We respect our serious competitors and will price match where the quality of the service and final product is comparable. There are a lot of people out there providing a digitising service but few I would recommend!

Trial Image Scan Service
