Professionally Scanned Film and Glass Plates

Whether you’re an artist who works with analog photography, a collector of old film and glass plate negatives or a museum with collection of Magic Lantern slides, you have probably wondered how are you going to digitize these images to print or archive them. We painstakingly scan negatives, slides and film transparencies, one frame at a time, to offer the highest resolution and finest detail.

Single Frame Scanning

With the rapid increase of photographers returning to film many are discovering a new challenge: Where and how do I print my pictures?
We aim to bridge the gap by offering ultra high quality film scans of the individual frames you need to print.

Fluid Mount or Standard Film Scanning – Which is the right choice?

That’s a big question and there are many reasons one might choose one process over the other. Use the form above to Contact Us and we’ll discuss these options with you to help you understand the processes and what benefits one may have over the other.

Standard Film Scanning

• Great for most films types
• Great for Polaroid and Instax prints and Glass Plate Negatives
• Non-Newtonian glass mounts eliminate circular aberrations [Newton rings]
• High Definition and High Resolution
• Least expensive option
• Not ideal for film with scratches and blemishes
• Not ideal for film with a great deal of curl

Fluid Mount Film Scanning

• Great for most films types
• Exceptional for sheet films
• Able to fully capture the entire border around the frame
• Cleaner scan as film must be cleaned thoroughly before and after scanning
• Reduces, and often eliminates, visible surface scratches and blemishes – suburb for older film
• Film lays flatter during the scan
• Zero chance for circular aberrations [Newton rings]
• High Definition and High Resolution
• Cannot be used with paper negatives, Instax or Polaroid images
• Cannot be used with mounted slides
• Cannot be used with Magic Lantern slides or similarly sandwiched glass slides
• Some risk involved especially with hand-produced film/negatives
• Greater cost

Jason scanned a couple of older, larger format negatives and produced stunning digital images. A pleasure to work with and results that match! Highly recommended.

Jason was such a pleasure to work with! He was patient, listening to our printing needs and very professional explaining things clearly. The artwork being printed was very special and he showed great care and attention to detail throughout every step of the printing process. His paper selection alone sets him apart from the competition, the quality is top notch. Our prints came out with breathtaking color, as close to a color match that I have ever witnessed as an artist. Me and my collaborator will certainly be using his printing service for all our future projects!

Jason is such a talented printer. I tried two other printers for a large panorama file and their results were so sad. Then Jason helped me set up the kind of file I needed and created such a beautiful richly detailed print. I took it straight in to be framed. I am thrilled!

Estimates may take up to a day to process.


Do you color correct, white balance, dust correct scans?
As a rule, we take great care to make good judgements while performing adjustments during the scanning process to produce a scan that reflects the quality standards and high fidelity we promise. To ensure color correctness we utilize both color calibrated scanners and monitors. We also clean each film and plate with an appropriately safe cleaner before scanning to reduce, and hopefully eliminate, any dust, water streaks and fingerprints the film or glass plate may have on it.

Any further adjustments, fine detail modifications, color adjustments and spot correcting are your responsibility. However, if you need an editing service to help you prepare these scans for printing or publishing Contact Us to discuss your project! We have several solutions available for editing, printing, organizing, and consultation in regard to future projects. We’ll discuss the options we provide to find a solution that fits within your budget.

We recommend you package your film in either a padded envelope or, more preferably, a well packaged and padded box. Envelopes intended for documents are discouraged as they offer no protection and can tear open resulting in damaged film, negatives, transparencies or glass plates.

Carriers and X-Rays

We recommend using USPS Priority (flat rate boxes), UPS, FedEx or private courier.
If you are sending us undeveloped film and your film will be loaded on an aircraft, be sure the carrier or their affiliate does not use X-Ray or CT scanners. CT Scanners will destroy any undeveloped film on a single pass. Damage caused by X-Rays to undeveloped film is cumulative, meaning damage by X-Rays can occur after multiple passes or via a single large dose. For more information about shipping and transporting film on aircraft or to download and print off Do Not X-Ray Labels visit KODAK.

Traveling With and Shipping Film

When traveling with film: – NEVER check unprocessed film in with your luggage. – ALWAYS keep unprocessed film in a clear plastic bag with your carry-on baggage and ask for it to be “hand-checked” during the security screening process. TSA and signage may suggest film is safe to be scanned when under a certain ISO, this is untrue. Scanning equipment at airports varies and damage to film is cumulative, meaning every pass increases the damage. X-ray damage (fog) is permanent and cannot be corrected by any lab. Additionally, many airports are now using CT Scanning Technology which will immediately fog any film on the first scanning pass, regardless of the ISO.ALWAYS ask to have unprocessed film hand-checked. Processed (developed) film is no longer light-sensitive and is safe to be scanned. Read Kodak’s Bulletin to learn more.
