The celluloid specialists at ScanDigital turn grainy 3"x5" photos and dented VHS tapes into dependable digital files. With $100 worth of services, you can digitize photos, negatives, slides, 3-inch 8mm film reels, or videocassettes. Customers are free to mix any of the memory-media ScanDigital services (click here to see all the formats). The digitization process includes photo colour correction and the cleaning and prepping of film and video to ensure the highest possible transfer of quality. After filling out an online form that generates a shipping label, customers can simply mail in their materials, then take a three- to four-week nap, after which they can welcome home the original copies as well as their new, high-quality clones on DVD.
With a quick, electron-enabled visit to Picture It On Canvas's product descriptions and a photon-carried look at its how-to template, customers can dive into the worlds of art, interior décor, and science simultaneously. Select a prize photo (digital or analog) from your archives and then use the online order form to begin your photomorphosis. Your $130 gift card must be used in one visit, but it can be applied to the cost of shipping.
With Mixbook's photobook services, you can instantly upload your treasured pictures and customize each with the easy-to-use Mixbook editor. Use the editor to crop photos, add text, and rotate any pictures you like, allowing you to convince friends that you met Michael Bublé while hanging upside-down in his master bedroom. Clients can then choose from several different types of printed books, such as the 8"x6" soft-cover pocket landscape ($11.99 for 20 pages) or to the 14"x11" hardcover coffee-table book ($49.99 for 20 pages), ideal for stirring up jealousy in bookless coffee tables. Mixbook uses archival-quality silk paper to ensure that sentimental snapshots have a glossy look and feel. You can also utilize Mixbook's services to craft engaging and customizable cards and stationery (starting at $0.39 each).
