ScanDigital is a photo scanning service that scans your old photos and turns them into digital form to preserve your memories and make your pictures easier to share. I know that most people have a digital camera now a days, we do! But back when my husband and I were growing up, digital camera’s were not around yet. All we have left are old photos that are gathering dust in old photo albums or worse yet stored in old shoe boxes.
ScanDigital is the world’s premier, photo digitization service. We provide high quality scans and provide them to you both on DVD or CD and through our online gallery. Using our fully interactive online gallery, you can share your photos with friends and family, upload additional digital images to complete your digital gallery and order reprints; as well as numerous other print products (i.e. mugs, key chains, t-shirts) through our print partner Qoop. Simply put, ScanDigital provides the most user-friendly experience available. We place the customer at the center of everything we do throughout the entire order process.
Trust us – photo scanning is the key to preserving and sharing such wonderful moments with new and old friends.” – from ScanDigital’s website.
ScanDigital was nice enough to give me a $50 gift code to try out their service. They clearly outline on their website how the process works.
Step 1: Fill out the order form, provide credit card information, print a shipping label and mail your pictures in. You also have the option of ordering a Secure Shipping Kit for $10 where they send you everything you need to safely and securely send your pictures to them.
I placed my order online on May 2nd, 2011. It took me just a couple minutes. Then I started going thru photos. That did not take me just a couple minutes…lol. I picked out 33 photos that were old or that I wanted a digital copy of. Most were from when I was a baby. One picture is the only one I have of my father, who I have never met. So I really don’t have to mention how priceless these photos are…even though I just did. I mailed it out on May 3rd.
Here are the pictures I sent in:
Sorry the pictures were accidentally deleted!
They received my package on May 6th and immediately started processing it. At any time, you can always log in to your account on their website, ScanDigital, to see where your order is at.
On May 7th, I went online to check and see where they were on my order…it clearly showed me that they were doing the Editing/Digital Optimization and Quality Check #2.
May 9th, I checked again to see where my order was at. It is now at the Final Quality Assurance Review, Disc/Hard Drive Creation and Order Finalized and Billed. Almost done!
I received an email on May 12th from ScanDigital letting me know they shipped my order out with a tracking number. Yay! I will be getting my new pictures soon!
I received a package back from ScanDigital on May 17th, 2011. So from the day I placed my order, it only took 15 days for them to receive, scan, digitize, upload and send my pictures back to me. I am super impressed! They bill you after all the work is done but before they send your package out. The total for my order was $20.84, I didn’t even come close to using all of the $50 GC they gave me! That was for a total of 33 pictures, great deal.
So now I have 33 pictures that are completely digital that weren’t before. Would you like to see some of the pictures…off course you would! Here ya go! Now don’t laugh!
So who remembers the old school baby walkers? Yes, this is me!
Once again…this is me. I think this was taken when I was in Kindergarten.
Stay tuned for the ScanDigital Giveaway and for more wonderful pictures (that I wouldn’t be able to share with you if it wasn’t for ScanDigital)!
Thank you ScanDigital!!!
