Are You a Member of the Writers Guild of America?








ScanMyPhotos.com has a long history of support for important causes. Our patent company, 30 Minute Photos Etc. has even led 5,000 people on a trip to New York City after 9/11 to support commerce and the airlines. See link.

Most recently, the company has announced a program to help the Writers Guild of America West members during their period of time without work. Click on news release for more info.

If you are a member of the WGA, please click on this order form and we will scan 250 of your pictures without charge and mail back on us. Just include a copy of your membership card with your order and check the box on the downloadable form.

During the strike, we have been many members, each of which have such diverse and exciting stories. One person wrote for the Si-Fi Chanel, so was especially eager to have us help electronically preserve their photos. The 250 pictures took about 2-minutes to scan. We are generous and find it difficult to turn people away. Another WGA member brought in about 1,200 photos - we overlooked the charge for the extra one-thousand scans. Hey, they must have miscounted. This program will continue until the walkout is resolved.


Your company can help surrport the members of the WGA too. Click on this link which also references our program to get more information

Can I Have My Photos From Overseas Scanned?



Sure. ScanMyPhotos.com is international, thanks to our arrangement with FedEx Priority International.

But, just how fast are we?

Here is a perfect example. A large box of pictures (8 lbs) arrived at our Irvine headquarters on Friday, Dec 28th. As with the millions of other photos that we scan, this order was completed and sent back the same day. What drives home the value of our super-fast photo scanning, and our technological infrastructure is that this particular order needed to be returned to Australia. That's right, Australia. We sent it back on Friday and our FedEx tracking updates advised our shipping facility that the order was received before 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, down under on Dec 31. It is still Sunday in California, but we are around 24/7 because every order is just as special.

Even domestically, ScanMyPhotos.com has super-fast service. Customers can choose to also have their DVD discs Federal Expressed for next day delivery. That means that if your order arrives at our headquarters on a Monday, you will have all your digitally saved DVD images at your home or office the next day; to save on return shipping, we then send just your photos (along with an extra complimentary DVD disc) via our U.S. Postal Services Priority mail partners. This is just one of the several customer delivery services provided by ScanMyPhotos.com

Money Magazine: Too Good a Deal?


Several loyal customers, who are also our biggest advocates have been sharing with us the January issue of Money Magazine with some disdain. The publication referenced several other scanning services and failed to include us in their listing. Although they did question our "Fill-the-box" pricing strategy. As leaders in the photo imaging industry, we understand that everything must today be supper easy, fast and inexpensive. Ordering has to be effortless and quick. So, we designed the flat rate U.S. Priority mail fill-the-box scanning service to easily scan more than 1,600 pictures to DVD.

It's super fast, orders are mailed out the same business day it's placed and all scanning orders are completed and mailed back the same day we receive the photos in the box.

Because most people have generations of photos, spanning decades and thousands of snapshots to scan, this is the most economical, fastest solution. With our buy 2-get-the-3rd-box free, you can scan more than 5,500 pictures for just $99.95. That's much less than 2.5-cents a scan. As Howie Mandel from TVs "Deal or No Deal" would say: "You made a great deal"

More Feedback: with more than 3.5 trillion photo snapshots waiting to be digitized, Money’s “Digitize Your Memories” (Jan 2008) provided helpful advice. But, sampling various photo scanning services with just about 40 photos is flawed. The sample was like test driving a car, but not leaving the dealers driveway - next time, do a real test with 1,500 photos, and your order will be mailed back the same day. For retail customers, your order will be ready in about 15-minutes!
Our average customer sends us about 1,500 all-sized pictures, including Polaroid’s and expects that all orders are returned the same day, not mailed to be scanned overseas. The most scans we did for a single customer was 22,000 - that took just 5-hours. Our “strange-sounding deal” to have a convenient, one-price scanning for filling our USPS Priority-branded boxes is unique and happens to be our most popular service. It is also based on a lesson we learned from Money Magazine - to keep it simple and dazzle the customer, always. Nearly 4-million photo memories have been digitally preserved at ScanMyPhotos.com.

With scores of media profiles, extraordinary buzz, nationwide customer testimonials and customer cheerleaders, we prefer more targeted magazine profiles anyway. You can't reach a better audience for preserving generations of pictures articles directed to genealogy fans, and the number one magazine in that category is Family Free Magazine.

Customer Complaint

Several weeks ago, a customer wheeled in, literally, 22,000 pictures in boxes that they drove down from San Francisco to have ScanMyPhotos.com convert to DVDs. First, they thought we scan photos in an hour and wanted to wait. Yes, we actually scan 1,000 photos in 10-minutes, but this was 22,000. With her added features to the order, it took a bit longer - 5-hours, but they were thrilled upon returning to Disneyland, which must have cost much for than the scans (just $49.95 for up to a 1,000 photos). Their complaint [concern] was that according to The Wall Street Journal, it was reported that the largest order we scanned was 19,000 photos. Yes, but she had more. It was an easy concern to fix, and we're doing it here. The largest single photo scan order at ScanMyPhotos.com was 22,000 pictures.

Even Celebrities Need to Preserve Their Photos, But Require Extra Security

It's not just our regular customers in Florida, Hawaii and across the nation who send us their photos to digitally preserve on DVD. After the Jan 31 Wall Street Journal profile, among the very first prepaid box orders was one from one of Hollywood's most famous actors. Because we are sensitive to and always protect the privacy of our customer, we can hint at their name, but... We are all in a very different world than the most powerful people in Hollywood. They ended up sending more than 12,000 pictures over a few weeks and even emailed to share their delight with ScanMyPhotos.com. And the pictures, they had. Many were in reverse; they were snapped of their fans looking in. This prospective was something that even TMZ doesn't share - and nor will we, but it was memorable.

As for celebrity customers, in the technology industry, one name at the very top of everyones list of chroniclers of the news visited with us yesterday. We mention this, because he is one of our best sources of information and cutting-edge insights that we have read and followed for years. To us, he's our hero and this blog was one of his many ideas, which we are more than grateful for. What a lesson we learned yesterday. And yes, we scanned more than 4,000 of his family's photo memories too.
