Film & Print Scanning
Our scanning services carry a minimum charge of $20.

Image files will be returned to you on either CD or DVD media, as appropriate for the size of the data set. We do not charge extra for the first copy of the data. Additional disks are available for $5 each.

Our film scanning prices include dusting with compressed air, only. Dust and scratch removal is not included, but is available for $40 per hour. Our scanning system automatically removes most dust and scratches from color film, but not black and white film.

Prices are for films in good condition - not films that have been damaged through age (color shifts) or physical abuse. The later will be treated as restorations that are billed at $40 per hour. You will be advised if any of your film falls in this category.

All scans are made with a bit-depth of 16. The attached table shows 8-bit sizes. Double this size for 16-bit data.

Films that do not fit our standard film holders will require special handling. They will be billed at $40 per hour. APX, 126, 127 and Kodak disk films are common examples.

The rate for scanning flat art, photos and other paper documents is $2.50 per 8.5x11 page.

USPS Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx should be used to send originals. Our address is Black Mountain Photo Arts, 17 Delova Lane #404, Swannanoa, NC 28778. Local customers may drop off originals, but should call first.
