Which prints can be scanned this way?
Photographic prints must be at least 2.5 x 3.5 inches and no bigger than 8 x 10 inches to be scanned at Shoebox Scan special pricing. Photos must be un-mounted, not torn or bent, and they must be free of Post-It notes, tape, staples and adhesives. Photos that have been stored in adhesive albums (the ones with the clear peel away cover sheet), as well as thick Polaroid and Kodak instant prints will not feed through the scanner.
How to prepare your photos for automated Shoebox Scanning:
We can only scan loose prints so they must be removed from albums. Sort your prints by grouping same sizes together, face up. Within each size group, keep horizontal images together and vertical images together – heads or sky facing the same direction. We’ll try to keep them all ’heads up’ if you separate your vertical and horizontal prints into groups. However, we may have to turn some to feed through the scanner. If you want to add descriptions to groups of your photographs (such as the year or decade they were taken), insert a labeled index card the same size as each group of photos and we will scan that along with your photos.
Two Sided Scanning:
Some of your photographs may have handwriting on the back that you also want scanned. Group these together and identify them as ‘scan both sides’.
