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.

2020 Covid Update

Despite covid, we are still going! 2020 has been a challenge for everyone, but we've managed to stay open, most of the work we receieve has come from the post, for in person visitors we have a drop off box, strictly upon appoiment, and socially distant. I am afraid that we cannot invite people into the premises at this time.. COVID has affected our turnaround times, so please check the lead times on this page and the estimated delivery date on your quote.

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.
