Fires, floods, fingernails, certified squashers, and curious baby hands are waiting to ruin your precious photographs. Protect your memories with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of photo and video digitization services from ScanCafe.
ScanCafe’s photo doctors have scanned more than 57 million images since the company’s launch in 2006, carefully preserving beloved prints to click-time glory. Once received at their photo-revamping headquarters, the snapshot sorcerers bewitch each blemished image by hand, scanning color and black-and-white prints (up to 8"x10", $0.29/scan), color 35mm slides ($0.29/scan), color 35mm negatives ($0.29/scan), children’s artwork (up to 11"x14", $0.99/scan), and more. With your $100 Groupon, you could digitize up to 340 photos, 340 negatives, or 340 slides. Each precious pictorial will be scanned and enhanced, fixing red eye and scratches, removing the ghosts of dead presidents, and refreshing faded colors to their true photogenic potential. When the conversion is complete, photo owners can proudly peruse an online gallery of finished products, selecting the shots they want permanently reformed. Along with a DVD or CD of high-resolution scans, the original copies are backed by a $1,000 safe handling guarantee, unparalleled by any other scanning service.
Your $100 Groupon could also digitize up to six videotapes in nearly every format, as ScanCafe's video-scanning services convert VHS, S-VHS, VHS-C, Betamax, Hi8, Digital 8, or MiniDV tapes into long-lasting DVDs ($14.99/tape, up to two hours in length). Simply package your footage of Uncle Pete's wedding or Aunt Peteria's Grammy-winning karaoke performance into a sturdy box and ship to ScanCafe headquarters, where the staff will compress videos into an archival-quality DVD, ideal for playing on computers or DVD players.
