About Scanning

Batch Scanning

Photos suitable for batch scanning are typically sized between approximately 8x10cm to 21x30cm. The backgrounds of the photos should be clean, without adhesive or other tapes and stickers. The photos should be of traditional photo thickness, so thicker cardboard images are not suitable for this purpose.

Arrange the photos in the order you want them scanned. Batch scanning does not include adjusting the tones or rotating the images correctly. The photos are scanned in the same format they are provided to us in a bundle. The photos must be separate.

The equipment automatically removes the worst dust and dirt particles, but it’s advisable to go through the photos yourself to ensure efficient scanning.

The photos go through two rollers, so extremely fragile and old photos are not recommended for batch scanning.

Flatbed Scanning

Flatbed scanning is suitable for photos that are not suitable for batch scanning. With flatbed scanning, you can also provide us with photos directly attached to an album. Flatbed scanning does not have the same restrictions as batch scanning. We do not recommend delivering photos inside glass; instead, we prefer the photo to be removed from the frame or from behind the glass.

Flatbed scanning is also a safer way to digitize fragile and old photos. In flatbed scanning, we arrange the photos on the scanning surface one by one, ensuring that they are not damaged.

Flatbed-scanned images are further cropped according to the image in Photoshop, resulting in the most accurate final result.

Scanning Resolution

We always scan images at a baseline resolution of 300dpi. If you require images to be scanned at an even higher resolution, please inform us in advance. However, please note that in flatbed scanning, this may cause slight delays.

File Types

The images are always scanned in JPG format by default. If you require the images to be saved in TIFF format, please inform us in advance.

Express Delivery

We have always prioritized speed, made possible by our in-store production and our own inter-store delivery. We aim to produce small batches while you wait without any express fees, but this is considered on a case-by-case basis, and we will always inform you about the costs before placing the order. If your order is urgent and the standard delivery time is not feasible, please remember to inform our staff, so that we can make sure that the production and possible transportation is possible. Each express order is considered on a case-by-case basis, and depending on the current workload at our stores, we may not always be able to offer this service.
 
The express fee is 10% of the total order value, but at least 10€.
