  • A Review of Our Quality

    pop photography
    “Using my wife's credit card and name (not Owens), I registered...then I stuffed 365 sleeved slides into a box. Pulled from my attic, these slides were Kodachrome, Ektachrome, and Agfachrome from the early 1970s to mid 1990s. Some were pristine, others fairly dirty.

    The attention to detail was impressive. And so were the scans. JPEGs averaging 2700KB, there were at least as good as I would have done. And the dust and dirt that marred some of the original slides were gone in the files...In all, I'm a believer.”

  • Our Quality, Compared

    "I am a full time professional photographer for 17 years. I recently sent an equal amount of slides to both ScanCafe, and a major USA competitor.

    The scans came back from Scan Cafe, and every single one of them was 100% perfect. 20% of the scans from the competitor were completely unusable, and 50% of them required adjusting in Photoshop.

    ...I was so pleased with the ScanCafe work that I am sending 900 slides in the mail to them tomorrow."

    - Brian S., Baltimore MD (July 2007)
