The photo-scanning service digitizes old photographs and negatives, manually retouches them and then saves them on to a DVD for you.
Through an online order form, you estimate your order quantity and place your order. After making a partial payment (equal to about half of your order), the Web site generates a prepaid UPS shipping label that you print out.
You pack up your old photos in a sturdy box, drop them off at a UPS location and ship them off.
The real fun comes after ScanCafe receives your pictures and scans them. They're posted in your private account online for you to review, along with notes suggesting any images that might not be good candidates for restoration.
At this point you can also choose to delete any duplicates or ones of people you no longer recognize, saving you a little money along the way.
You then organize the images into albums and the service goes back to work on the final step of creating your DVD.
If you want to display the images in more creative ways, you can order tote bags, coasters, aprons, playing cards and more wth your pictures printed on them.
