organization and scanning
We help people get their digital and printed photos organized, and processes set-up for them to stay that way! This includes...
- getting digital photos off computers, phones, cameras, etc. and into an organized, safe place that is backed up;
- getting printed photos out of drawers, developer envelopes and clear plastic boxes, sorted, and into photo-safe locations; and,
- scanning to help you preserve and share your photos.
We provide in-home and offsite services, as well as organizing packages at all levels to meet your needs.
how it works
We start with a free 30 minute consultation to talk about your goals. From there, we develop a plan, which may include one of our organization packages or a custom package designed specifically for your needs. We provide services in half-day sessions.
Photo organization packages
Please contact us with questions and pricing information.
Additional services can be added to all packages, including additional sessions. Products that may be needed to complete the project are charged separately, such as scanning, photo-safe storage, photo organizing software, etc.
We provide premium scanning services, which includes attention to each individual image. All photos and memorabilia (up to legal size 8.5x14) are scanned locally at 600 dpi. Basic color correction and enhancement and basic file renaming (e.g. SmithScan.jpg) are included. Additional editing and color adjustments, as well as best practice file renaming (e.g. 2015-04-09_Jack_Christmas.jpg), can be requested as an additional service.
You will receive your original back, along with a .jpg file on the media of your choice. Options include a flashdrive, cloud option (e.g. Dropbox), or a DVD. There is an additional $10 charge for flashdrives on orders less than 200 scans.
Ask us about additional copies for family and friends, as well as prints.
15% discount on scanning for clients using organizing or album design services. Minimum charge of $15 for stand alone scanning projects.
