At ScanCafe we pride ourselves in our handcrafted quality and providing customers with options to best suit their needs. That’s why we have two options for our photo scanning services! We offer A la Carte pricing as well as Value Kit pricing. A la Carte has a faster turnaround time and allows you to discard up to 20% of scans at no charge. Customers with select photo formats only in their order (35mm color slides & negatives, paper photos to 8x10) may want to use our value kit, priced from 34¢ per scan. Regardless of which option you choose, all of our processing is completed in Indianapolis with a $1,000 guarantee. Check out our product comparison of the two options below to figure out which option is best for you!
