Since we process a wide variety of photographic material, we require an array of scanning equipment. Each type of material requires a different machine be used. Our highly skilled technicians have the ability to identify the exact film format and the knowledge and skill to best process each variety. Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest quality end result, so our scanning is the best available. To gain a better insight into our process, taske a look into the precise equipment we use below.
If you plan tackle this project yourself, please keep in mind that having this scanning equipment alone does not guarantee high quality results. This equipment must be paired with the knowledge and expertise to operate them correctly and requires a keen eye for editing these images. Not only does our service produce unmatched results, but DIYers tend to get frustrated with the time and energy it takes to actually use this equipment.

"Dear Scan Digital Team, I just received your email that my order has been completed and is ready for shipping and I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how much I value every single aspect of your service approach. There is a lot of "anxiety" in shipping one's precious photos off for scanning. So the fact that you (1) acknowledge receipt by email, and then (2) later tell me when processing has begun, and then later (3) tell me when processing is completed and you're ready to ship... all these steps completely eliminate any angst. Secondly, the actual work itself... I think your people are not only helpful and conscientious, but they are also smart! As an example, when I included several Polaroid's for scanning (the kind with a large white border at the bottom... you cropped out that border on all the shots except one that had a hand-written date on it... and you included that precious date detail in the scan. Smart. I didn't think of it but I really appreciated it when I discovered you had. Even the "note" in the box with the name of the person processing my order made me feel good about what a careful company you must be. I'm well into "middle aged" years, so I've lived long enough to witness the decline in many service industries... and I'm sympathetic that it is difficult to "afford" to provide high-touch service for other than expensive products and services (and you are most reasonably priced). So I don't know how you do it, but I'm very appreciative. If you're like most companies, someone inside your business will someday "discover" a way to trim costs over time, and therefore also reduce the quality of your customers' service experience. But you've already convinced me - you are not like most companies. Thank you Scan Digital!! Keep it up. (And by the way, I don't have time to write emails like this, so you can imagine how strong my feelings are.) Loyally yours, Allan"
