Partial payment. When you place your order, you will make a partial payment roughly equal to 75% of your order.
USA Standard option: Your order will be scanned in our Indianapolis lab with a 3-4 week turnaround time.

Ship Your Photos to ScanCafe’s Lab
Use a sturdy box. See our packing tips to ensure your photos don’t get damaged.
Fill your box. You don't have to organize the contents, since you'll only be paying for the scans you keep (with a 80% minimum). But if you choose to organize the contents, follow our packing tips.
Drop off your box at a UPS location. Your order is tracked from the minute you hand it to UPS.
We'll send you an email when we receive your originals photos.
We will handle the rest of the shipping for your order, which will include transporting it via air freight (the most secure form of shipping in the world), to and from our scanning facility in Indianapolis, IN. Read more packing safety tips here.
* Turnaround time depends on the type of media sent in the order. Updated estimate turnaround time is provided when we receive your order.
