Digital Photographic Services


We offer a wide range of high-resolution scanning services. We can handle film formats from 35mm to 8x10, and have successfully scanned everything from tiny disk negatives to panoramic negatives several feet long. We can scan printed material up to 40"x60" in one pass.

We also provide some image retouching and restoration services. We deliver files by disk or online and can provide you with any file size you need. We use Adobe Photoshop CS3 for image editing and have both Windows and Macintosh computers.

Turnaround times for digital work are typically two to three days for smaller jobs (less than 10 images). Please let us know if you are working with a deadline.

We accept cash, checks, JVs, and Visa/Mastercard.
Rush service is an add'l 50%.
