35mm Slide / negative Scanning service from 25p per silde

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Scanned Slides, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. Hello everyone,

    I'd like to show people a new service we are offering in scanning 35mm
    slides and negatives. The cost of this is from 25p per scan. We will put
    these onto a CD or DVD at no extra cost and send the slides and digital
    images back to you via Royal Mail special delivery.

    Please have a look at www.slidescan4u.co.uk for extra info.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    So if I want 100 slides scanning, at a reasonable resolution for
    printing out, (which would be the 4800dpi option), the cost is 94p per
    slide, plus £6.99 p&p, giving a total cost of £100.99, or about £1.00 a
    slide, which is a lot different from the 25p per scan quoted above, even
    though it does say 'from'.

    100 slides @ 30p each = £30
    100 high res @ 50p each = £50
    Postage = £5.95
    Total £85.95 so about 85p per silde inc. transfer to DVD or CD.

    Sounds resonable to me, looking at other prices charging 60p or so for low
    res scans. plus postage, plus transfer

    It states on the site "Please note all prices exclude VAT at 17.5%"
    So £85.95 + VAT = £100.99, which is about £1.00 per image as I wrote
    earlier.

  5. Taking in you comments, we have decided to lower our pricing, by scanning
    all sides at hig res, 4800dpi for no extrra cost. So for 100 slides the
    price would be

    100 slides scanned at 4800dpi @ 30p each = £30
    VAT = £5.25
    Postage = £5.95
    Total = £41.20

    Kind Regards

  7. My biggest concern re scanning - and that which takes the time - is dust
    eradication. Even though I am extremely careful at eliminating dust from
    the slides or neg stock, I still find dots and hairs in the resultant
    scan.

    If slidescan4u can really do a clean job, it's not worth using my own
    scanner.

    I notice that even Google-Earth has hair problems!!

  8. Have a look for a scanner that supports ICE -- they do an amazingly
    impressive job at removing dust/hairs. Betw

  10. LOL!

    Yes, I found that out looking for a building in the neighbourhood. When
    I got there I walked in and fell into the canal!! ;-)

    We were advised to switch it off, because it softened other parts of
    the image too, like dust and scratches filters. But that was probably
    an earlier ICE incarnation. Interesting that it's improved.

    Are you sure you didn't trip over a hair, *then* fall into the water?
