Estimate Your Project
The first step in digitizing your photos and home movies is gathering your materials and estimating your quantities. We have put together a useful project estimation tool to assist you in this step.Get A Quote
Below are some tips and tricks on estimating your project.
A block of slides in 2x2 cardboard mounts can be estimated as 20 slides per inch. Carousels hold between 80 and 140 slides.
Estimate the number of frames to be digitized. Negatives in developer envelopes generally hold between 24 and 36 frames. Negatives are often cut into 6 frame strips.
A stack of prints can be estimated at 100 prints per inch.
When estimating APS estimate the number of frames not the number of cartridges. Each cartridge holds either 15, 25, or 40 exposures.
The pricing includes all tape types and for lengths up to two hours.
Trying to figure out how much film you have?
3 inch reel holds 50 feet of film.
4 inch reel holds 100 feet of film.
5 inch reel holds 200 feet of film.
6 inch reel holds 300 feet of film.
7 inch reel holds 400 feet of film.
Select Your Media
Once you have estimated your project you will need to choose how you would like to have your digital photos and videos returned to you.
Access your images and videos instantly and download them directly to your computer.
An external hard drive is a versatile storage option that is easy to use and duplicate. It also serves as a physical backup of your photos and home movies separate from your computer.
DVD's and Data Discs are quickly becoming outdated. We do still have customers that prefer to have their project returned on a set of discs but if you are unsure of what you should order we recommend you choose a flash drive.
Pack and Ship Your Order
- Place your film and photos in a container
- Use a sturdy box that won't crush easily
- Wrap your photos and film in plastic
- Avoid using packing materials that generate dust or debris
- Don't write on the back of your photos with magic marker, ink, or crayon
- Don't package a photo to look like the packing materials
