Current Lead Times

Photo scanning service lead time

The question I am asked the most is "When will my images be ready ?". The answer will depend on whether you want slides, photos or negatives scanned, and how many you have, as well as our current workload.

Sometimes the answer will be a few days, at other times it might be 2 months ! I will update this page on a regular basis to give people the current best estimates of how long jobs will take, and if you get a quote you will also be given an estimated date when we will complete your order.

September 2017

We are currently experiencing an unprecendented workload which means our lead times for new orders have increased, please see the dates on your quotes and orders for our best estimated date
