At Fleetwood in Knoxville, TN, shoebox scans are designed for all your more sturdy, good quality photos. (Anything that can be pulled through the high speed scanner!) We carefully scan your images and can print duplicate copies or archive them to a CD or Jump Drive.
Images scanned in our shoebox scanner
Images that are LARGER than 2.5" x 3.5" (wallet size)
Images with NO rips, tears or folded edges
Images with NO decorative edges or odd shapes (cut-outs, circles, etc.)
Images that are NOT overly thick
Images that DO bend easily
Copyrighted images must have a copyright release form from the photographer or artist or they will not be scanned. You can call or email the photographer and have them send you the release for your photo. If you have tried everything to locate the photographer or artist and they are still unable to be reached, a form is available for you to sign stating that you have completed all of the requested steps.
The Shoebox Scanning Kit
The Fleetwood Photo Shoebox Scanning Kit is designed for quick scanning of large print quantities. We carefully scan your images and save them to a DVD for archiving, viewing, and ordering!
For $199 we will scan up to 500 of your photos from a 2x3 wallet up to an 8x10 print! Your photos will be scanned at 600 DPI, which is perfect for printing, sharing, or for just having a digital backup of your prints. Your order will include a DVD of your images; however, we can also make a USB drive copy for a nominal fee. We can also make additional copies of the DVD for $9.95 each that you can then give to your family as gifts!
How it Works
1. Purchase your shoebox kit at Fleetwood Photo.
2. Take it home, read and follow the instructions.
3. Fill the box with groupings of like-sized photos.
4. Return the box to our store with the signed checklist included with the box.
5. Pick up your DVD with your new digital images a few days later and of course your original pictures too!
What can go in the Shoebox Kit:
Up to 500 loose photos from a 2x3 up to an 8x10
The shoebox kit is designed for images that can bend and flex easily with little to no effort.
Images cannot be torn, taped, sticky, or have anything rough on them. Images matching this description will not be scanned through this service. We can scan them through another process but there will be an additional charge.
What does NOT go in the Shoebox Kit:
Aged and delicate photos, negatives and slides, newspaper clippings, odd-shaped photos, or laminated images. We can scan these items but NOT through the shoebox scanning process. Please see our Flat Bed Scanning page for more information.
Copywritten photos- we MUST have a copyright release from the photographer, or they will not be scanned.
Packing the Box
Please use our pre-paid box for packing your photos to be scanned.
Group photos together by like sizes.
Remove duplicates. We use an automated process to scan your photos, so we will not be able to stop duplicates from scanning. If there are duplicates in your box, they will be scanned along with the rest of your photos.
Check for copywritten images. Copywritten images will NOT be scanned without written permission from the photographer.
"Scan in order"
If you would like your photos to be scanned in a specific order, you must order the “Scan in Order” service for an extra fee. Ordering this service will let the scanner operator know that you need to have your photographs scanned in the order you have brought them. This service overrides the necessity of placing your images in size order.
Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the front of each photo to remove any excess dust. Any substance (i.e. watermarks, pen marks, etc.) that is on the photograph will be scanned on your digital image.
