Digitize

Would you like to digitize photos and documents, or discover the image on those old slides and negatives? Archive Your Past can help!

Digitize your visual memories!
Don’t send your memories off to high-priced digitization companies!  Let Archive Your Past help you preserve your memories with high quality scans. We can scan regular photo prints, fragile or delicate prints, oversized or very small photos, documents, newspapers, articles, and more! 

Scanning quality can vary greatly depending on the condition and film processing method of the photo.  We work with an Epson V850 scanner to provide you with the best image that we can craft. 

Together, we will talk about grouping and labeling your images so the project meets your needs.   We can group your images by years, events, family branches, topics or any other idea you have.

You may ask why it is more expensive to digitize individual photographs than to digitize slides and negatives.  Photographs cannot be scanned in bulk and the larger DPI requires a longer scan time.  Negative and slides can be scanned in bulk.  Their smaller size requires less scan time.
