photo scans

I was shopping inPebbles in My Pocket about 2 months ago when I began my flower hair clips obsession, and discovered a new service they are offering…

19 cents photo scans.
For 19 cents Pebbles will scan your photo, burn them all on a CD, and it’s an option to have them also upload it to a Heritage Makers acct. for you.

oh my.

I have had PILES of photos sitting on my window bench upstairs by my computer/work area for WEEKS waiting for me to scan in… for various reasons.
I wanted to get all the photos I have, from my childhood, since Dusty and I have been dating/married, our kids, all of them. so I can have a digital copy on a CD {from our pre-digital years}, get it uploaded to a photo server, and not have ANY photos sitting around in closets. The clutter of loose photos just drives me crazy!

You wouldn’t believe this! I am almost DONE with this project!

unbelievable, isn’t it?!?

At first I was taking in shoe boxes of organized lose photos to them. Then I started taking old photo albums. They were willing to take the photos out of the little slide-jackets, scan them, and put them all back in order into the photos albums…WOW! They also kept it organized by album for me. So, I have a CD of all the photos per album/shoe box.

Plus, I already had a Heritage Makers account, so they uploaded them to MY account. I may or may not use them there, but if I decide to make a Heritage Makers book out of them, one of the first BIG steps is already DONE for me!

Now I am going to do the photo albums that I have from my Dad when he passed away. Dusty is also going to send over a few piles of his from the office.

I am just so excited about this, that I wanted to share the news with everyone! If any of you know of scan services being offered elsewhere that offer better prices – let me know!

Also, every $25.00 you spend, you get 25 scans FREE!

  1. Wow! This is amazing! I am EIGHT YEARS behind on my family albums because my pictures aren’t digital! I guess it’s time to get to work. I’m so glad you shared:)
