SAN FRANISCO, Calif., (September 20, 2007) – As summer comes to an end and the children head back to school, many parents are taking the time to get caught up on household projects they’ve been putting off for the past few months. Decluttering, organizing the home, and preparing for the upcoming holidays are some of the tasks topping most parents’ lists. Helping parents tackle all three projects at once is ScanCafe, a revolutionary photo scanning and restoration service that helps people preserve their most precious memories with a compelling new service model.
ScanCafe makes it easy for people to organize their paper photos, negatives and slides, while at the same time providing them with the perfect family gifts for the upcoming holiday season. With ScanCafe, people simply mail in their photos, slides and negatives and ScanCafe will scan, professionally restore and organize all of them before sending them back. There is no need to pre-sort photos, since ScanCafe’s revolutionary pricing model allows customers to pay only for the digital images they wish to keep (with a minimum purchase of 50% of the images scanned). At only 19 cents per negative, ScanCafe’s service makes for an affordable holiday gift for the entire family that will be around for the generations to come.
ScanCafe customer Matt Gallagher was the owner of the two millionth photo that was recently scanned by ScanCafe. Matt has placed more than ten orders with ScanCafe. “I had been looking for a quality photo scanning service like ScanCafe’s for a long time, since scanning your own photos takes up so much time,” said Matt. “ScanCafe’s services are the highest quality and most affordable photo scanning services I’ve found, and they save me lots of time.”
Professional color correction, cropping, scratch cleansing, and red eye removal are just a few of the free services included as part of ScanCafe’s basic photo scanning service. ScanCafe’s professional photo technicians manually scan all photos (many other companies scan photos automatically through auto-fed machines, increasing the likelihood of photo damage) and perform individual retouches. For customers with severely damaged or torn pictures, ScanCafe also offers more intensive photo restoration services at very low prices. All selected photos are burned to a CD or DVD in high-resolution and sent back to the customer. With more than 2 million photos successfully scanned to date, ScanCafe has the expertise to deliver superior results.
“People often store their most precious memories in shoeboxes in the closet, leaving them susceptible to fire damage, water damage and general deterioration,” said Sam Allen, CEO of ScanCafe. “ScanCafe has created an easy, safe, and low-cost photo scanning service that allows people to preserve those memories forever, while helping them clean up the clutter and prep for the holidays.”
