Shoebox Legacies
In-Home Photo Scanning

Why Shoebox Legacies?

It can’t get any easier than this. We scan your photos right in your home. Why would anyone consider shipping their irreplaceable photos to a distant lab and risk never seeing them again? Until now, your photo scanning options were to ship your photos to some distant state (or country), spend a couple of days working with a local retailer or scan them at home on a slow flat-bed scanner. In-home-photo-scanning is as convenient as you can get.

Shoebox Legacies uses the fastest photo scanning equipment available today. Our Kodak PS80 photo scanners can scan up to 85 photos per minute – that kind of speed means our photo technician can scan all of your photos in a couple of hours. We’re in and out and you can get on with your life.

All our photos are scanned at 300, 600, or 1200 dpi (dot per inch) – the exact specification given by industry leading document imaging specialists. At 300 dpi your digital photo can be printed at the exact size and quality of your original photo.

State-of-the-art equipment, software and web tools provide you the best tools for preserving your photo legacy.

Once our photo scanning technician has scanned your photos, you are given a flash drive or DVD that contains all of your newly scanned photos. All photos are stored in .jpg format at a resolution of 300, 600, 1200 dpi. You can copy the disk onto your hard drive or external back up devices for safe keeping.

In addition to the DVD disc you receive, all of your photos can be loaded onto your personal computer of hard drive for safe keeping. If you were to lose or damage your DVD disc you can purchase another copy of your DVD. We’ll burn you a new disc and mail you a new copy. Now that should give you peace of mind.
