SLIDE SCANNING PRICING


SLIDE SCANNING

HIGH LEVEL FILES

With our high resolution professional scans, your images will look great on a TV, monitor, LCD projector and capable of making a quality 11x14 print easily.  

Same old expression good slide, good print.  Good slide we can do 20x30’s.  Bad slides some can be improved, not all. Just like the computer business, trash in, trash out.  But we have tools to improve bad in some cases. Actually remarkable at times.

We accept slides in carousels or bulk wrapped?  No problem!  Your slides will be kept in the carousels and bulk will be returned to you. 

If you do not wish the carousels back, we’ll offer a credit on your account and wrap the slides in airtight configuration to stop further bleeding and ship back to you free. 

If you want the useless carousels, the postage gets expensive.  Generally older Carousels, rust, old plastic, and lock up, after all some are 50 years old easily.  They do go bad, many do not want them back if their carousel is not functioning.  To date we have not found any other use for them. Once a year, I make a landfill run.


SPECIAL FORMAT SLIDES  -  OVERSIZE THICKNESS  75¢95¢ a slide.  

These are slides that may have come from Europe with oversized locked plastic cases. They have to be done manually as taking them apart could injure the slide itself.  They were made by GEPE and used in some locations with anti-Newton Ring coverings. 

They are grey and white in a thick plastic.  Fortunately since I invest time and energy in developing these state of the art digitizers, we added the new “PHOENIX” model to our four conventional machines to handle particularly tough digitals like these.  

Currently we are doing 1000 of them and the Phoenix has risen from the ashes.  Slow and steady, these Euro slides are something else, extreme heavy duty and the film plane has to be perfect for reproduction.

•  126  mounted in a 2 x 2mounts.  The film size is square, not rectangular like 35 mm.

HINTS
•  
Good images result in 24 MP returns most (depending on crop) High resolution: to 4,000 dpi  24 MP.
•  We orient and color correct each slide nominally. Some require more aggressive corrections because of exposure and natural aging of the slide.
•  Severely bad slides requiring restoration are figured on an hourly basis.
•  Quantity discount pricing for large repeat customers under our commercial program.
•  No extra charge for slides in carousels, in fact its less and you could get a credit for the Carousels you won’t need.
•  Dust & scratch reduction is automatic and more severe slides (those where the dust and dirt are embedded into the emulsion) might require additional processing.
