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.

2018 Update

The business has recently received a huge upsurge in orders and we are currently running at 100% capacity, 100% of the time and so have produced a backlog. Our website will give you an estimate of when your job will be completed, based on the current workload and we strive to work to these timescales so that you are aware before placing any order of how long the process is going to take.

Christmas Orders

We are normally working at full capacity from the 1st week in November on christmas orders, it will be very unlikely that we will be able to accept orders after November that will get done in time for christmas. Please feel free to send us an email and enquire though.
