Frequently Asked Questions
» Do you scan differently on a Value Kit order?
No, we don't. Every Value Kit order receives the exact same 3-4 minutes of hand-scanning service that we ordinarily deliver in our à la carte pricing. Colors are corrected, scratches are removed, photos are cropped and re-oriented, as necessary.
» Can I put video tapes into my kit?
Yes, you can, so long as the total retail scanning value of your kit doesn't exceed the retail scanning value of the value kit option you chose. If it does, we will charge you list price for the overage.
» What if I send more than the minimum images required?
The box is sized to fit 500, 1000 or 2000 photos, depending on the option you select. However, it's possible to accidentally send more than the mentioned count, particularly with negatives. In the event that you do, we will simply count the overage and charge you list price for each item. For example, if you sent us 550 35mm color slides, we'd charge you an additional 50 slides X $0.29 each, or $14.50. We would contact you to arrange payment for the overage.
» Can you return my Value Kit to someone else?
Well, no. The Value Kit will be returned to the exact same address that you give us when you place the order. If you want to order a box that is returned to a different address, try our Gift Box.
» Why does the shipping cost a flat price?
To make the shipping simpler, we've simply taken our average costs for three rounds of secure tracked shipping. Another way to think about it is that we have extra costs here compared to our à la carte service. Here, we have to send you an empty box, full of packing materials and a prepaid envelope, prior to your sending your order in.
» Can I order a Value Kit if I live in Canada?
The Value Kit offer is not available to Canadian residents. However, our standard offering is available to Canadian residents.
*The price as indicated is for standard media (35mm color slides, negatives and photos upto 8 X 10 only).
If you include other media type, you will be charged as per list price.
