Details about the Shoebox Slide Scanning service

  • We accept slides of any size (format) including metal mounts and glass slides.
  • Choose Bronze, Silver or Gold packages depending on your slide size(s). The digital files will be returned to you on a DVD or USB, or delivered online depending on the service that you have selected.
  • Turn-around time: 10 business days on shoebox quantities of 200 slides or less. Please contact the store for turn-around time on larger orders.
  • Slides with removal mounts should have the mounts removed prior to delivery. If you prefer that our staff remove the mounts, a $0.10/slide fee will be applied.
  • Some slides must be flatbed scanned and will be billed separately. You will be contacted prior if this applies to your order.

What you need to know

  • Price does not include cleaning slides. We do not want to harm the original slide.
  • If your box includes over 1000 slides, we will contact you and provide you with a quote and estimated completion date.
  • If you wish to have your slides scanned in a specific order (additional charges apply), clearly indicate the order within the box.
  • Our experts can determine the front and back of slides, so there is no need to mark/indicate the front of each slide.
  • Older slides will fade and degrade over time. Your slide images will benefit greatly from our colour correction service (provided free of charge). Bring those colours back to life.
