Order : Scanning Quantity Estimates - ScanCafe

Help topics

Why a partial payment?

We realize that most of our customers don't know the exact media type they have nor the count. So taking a partial payment ensures we charge you only for the actual media we have scanned rather than what you have estimated.

How much time does this scanning process take?

We will typically complete scanning and make an order online for review/final payment in 8-10 business days (for USA express orders) and 4-6 weeks (for regular orders). Your DVDs and originals will be returned to you within 10-14 days after you make the final payment; however a digital download of the photo scans can be made available within 2 business days. These estimates are good for orders that has less than 2000 std. media. Once we receive your order, you'll be able to track the progress online.

35mm & APS Negatives, Color or B&W

Negative images typically come in strips, usually 5-7 images long. We scan the entire negative strip that you provide. Your negative strips must each be at least 2 images long. We cannot accept requests to only scan certain images on a strip.

In Carousel

If sending slides in carousels, there is an incremental processing fee per carousel. Slides in carousels will be returned exactly as they are received.

Documents & Large Photos

We scan any paper media up to a size of 11x14 including: newspaper clippings, letters, and children's art.

Medium Format

Medium format uses 120 or 220 film, with common frame sizes of 6x6cm, 6x4.5cm ("645"), 6x7cm, and 6x9cm.

Pro Library

You will receive one set each of:
1. RAW unedited TIFF files and
2. Edited JPEG files

DVD Set

This charge is for additional disc sets of your scanned images. The charge will vary dependent on # of images in your order (more images require more discs). For instance, if your order requires two discs, then an extra DVD disc set would be $15.90 (2 discs X $7.95).

Resolution

Resolution for media where the image size is known in advance (e.g., 35mm Negatives) is shown in megapixels ("MP"). For media where the image size is not known until we receive it (e.g., paper photos), resolution is shown as the dots per inch of the scan, or "dpi". For more on resolution, go to our Resolution page in the Quality & Safety section of our website.
