Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Hello, I am wondering about the cost of shipping? We ship our photos to you, I assume that is at our expense. When you ship the DVD back, I guess that is minimal shipping charges? How does it work shipping into Canada. Also, I notice on the $100 package you need to do 1000 prints, so if you buy the groupon, what will you ultimately be paying for the rest of the well,n ot prints, but 'conversions' that you need to do to meet the qualifications? Thanks, Valerie

A:

Hi Valerie! Thank you for your interest in our deal! When you place your order, you must select the self shipping method and choose your own shipping provider to send us your materials. Orders being shipped back to Canada are shipped via UPS Ground for $25 plus the international brokerage fee. The Groupon is valid for $100 worth of services - you are not required to send in 1,000 photos with this deal. We scan loose printed photos that measure 8'' x 10'' and below for $.48 at 300 dpi or for $.68 per photo at 600 dpi. If you want to create prints from your images, at 300 dpi you can create a print the same size of the original. At 600 dpi, you can print at double the size of the original. You can have 208 photos scanned at 300 dpi for the $100 Groupon plus shipping costs.

Q:

Is the limit of one Groupon per order applicable to only the $300 value or also for the $100 one? Ie. could I use 3 ($100 groupons) on one order of approx. 600 pictures? The fine print is not clear on this point.

Norman B.  asked on  Oct 8, 2012

A:

Hi Norman! There is a limit of one $300 Groupon per order per customer or three $100 Groupons per order per customer.

Hello Glen! Thank you very much for your inquiry. We do handle 8mm video tapes. All video transfers to DVD are $19.95 per tape 2 hours or less.

We are happy to answer any and as many questions as you might have Marnie! Each video transfer is $19.95 per tape. Assuming each tape is 2 hours or less, you can have 5 digitized for a $100 Groupon or 15 for the $300 value. Thank you again for your interest in our service!

Q:

that one about the videos at the performing schoo lwas from me -- Marnie Also, I don't know what dpi means. i hve hundreds of photos of the student shows too, but I think the videos are more crucial. it is already almost impossible to find a video player that is not broken.

marnie j.  asked on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

Hello again Marnie! DPI stands for dots per inch and it refers to the resolution we will scan your photos at. We recommend going with the normal resolution if you are not planning to later enlarge your images. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email Support@scandigital.com.

Q:

i have many Videos, from the 70s to recent past---when we all stopped using them. which is the best use of your product for the least amount of money? I used to have a performing arts school, and these are videos of shows we did over the years. wonderful, irreplaceable memories, but so expensive to digitalize here that there is no way I will ever be able to preserve them, now that I am retired.....but I am very aware that they are deteriorating daily. Also, how to ensure that they will not be lost, since they are irreplaceable? thank you for offering this opportunity.

marnie j.  asked on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

Hi Mamie! I would recommend going with our Premium transfer at $19.95 per tape 2 hours or less to have your videos digitized in combination with a Groupon. Also, we recommend using UPS shipping through our site when placing your order. You'll be able to track your package and so will we. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email Support@scandigital.com.

Q:

I have well over 1000 prints in boxes and albums and am considering the $115 ($300 value) groupon - after reading the fine print it seems I cannot use that deal toward your bulk prepay order - please clarify. What does the 300/600 dpi mean in relation to existing photos or is this referencing the finished digital product - please clarify. I'm in Canada and with the additional shipping/brokerage costs, I want to ensure this deal is worth it for me. Thanks, Donna

Donna E.  asked on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

Hello Donna! Thank you very much for your interest in our Groupon deal. Only a $100 Groupon can be used with a Pre-Pay and Save Bulk order. I apologize for any inconvenience. 300 vs 600dpi refers to the resolution we will scan them at, meaning what you will get back. We recommend going with the higher resolution if you plan on enlarging your images later on. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email Support@scandigital.com.

Q:

Hi. We have about 40 8mm videos (from video cameras which are now obsolete). How much would it cost to have these converted into DVDs? Is any of the quality lost in this conversion? Could I mail these to you from Blaine, Washington? (I believe you are an American company.) Thanks, Zaara.

Carolyn P.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Hello Zaara! Thank you very much for your inquiry. It would cost $798 to have your 40 tapes transferred. We are an American company based in sunny Torrance, Ca. You can definitely mail in your precious memories to us. If you have any more questions, please feel free to email Support@scandigital.com.

Q:

Hello, I have 40 rolls of APS/Advantix film (half are 36 frames and half are 24)... I'd like these scanned at 4000dpi... what would be the price of doing this work? Should I buy multiple Groupons? Thanks, James

James T.  asked on  Oct 4, 2012

A:

Hi James! We scan APS negatives for $.78 per frame at 4000 dpi. The cost to scan your order would come out to about $936. I would recommend purchasing the $300 Groupon and then you can contact us at support@scandigital.com for a discount on the remainder. Thanks for your interest!
