What You'll Get
If technological trends persist, then our children's grandchildren will one day have to explain to their grandchildren that photos were once flat, unscented, and not the property of Lord Zortro. Protect and serve your memories with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 1,000 standard 4"x6" photos scanned and converted to DVD (a $79.50 value), with return shipping and handling included (a $19.95 value), from ScanMyPhotos.com.
ScanMyPhotos.com—heralded by Popular Photography as the "leader in digitizing prints" and mentioned in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal—artfully converts printed memories into shareable, edit-ready digitals. Photo hoarders can fill a box with up to 1,000 cherished memories, and then ship them away to be transfigured into high-resolution, 300-DPI JPEGs. Qualified, scan-savvy employees digitize the assorted snapshots often as soon as the day of arrival, and then return both the original photos and the DVD-data disc in a few days' time.
Although ScanMyPhotos.com sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
- It really works and, at a first skim through the 1,800-odd photos I sent in, the quality of reproduction is excellent—every bit as good as the originals. – Jay Palmer, Barron's
- This was such a simple solution to a classic dilemma — picture hoarding. Most of the firm’s business is done via the Internet, with a simple fill-it-up box that you mail in. Toss everything in the prepaid box, drop it off at the post office, and a few days later a DVD appears along with your photos. It’s that easy. – Robert Lachman, Los Angeles Times

ScanMyPhotos.com began in 1990 as a small retail photo center in Irvine, California, but thanks to innovations in Kodak photo-scanning technology soon blossomed into a national, online picture preserver. Lauded by Popular Photography as the "leader in digitizing prints", featured by USA Today, and mentioned in both Forbes and the The Los Angeles Times, and profiled on KTLA-TV News, the company artfully converts printed memories into edit-ready, 300- or 600-dpi images conveniently stored on a data DVD, flash drive, or uploaded to the cloud.
Technicians can also convert slides and negatives into digital files, restore timeworn photographs, and transfer VHS or 8mm to high-definition DVDs so that moms can preserve their child's first birthday party and dads can update the home videos where they reenacted episodes of Charlie's Angels.
