Memento is proud to offer in-house scanning of both Prints and Slides.
Unlike other services, Memento does not ship your photos & tapes across the world. We do all our own scan work right here. Depending on our load, your work is often turned around in just a couple of days.
Slide scanning also comes in two flavors, our 35¢ Economy Slide scan and our 99¢ Pro Slide scan.
Families navigating a transition, such as passing of a loved one, or moving mom in with a relative, often find themselves with boxes and boxes of “photo stuff.” We have solved this problem so often, we now call it our Memento Family Archive Service. This service ties together scanning with methods to catalog and share the results.
Special Services scans can include children’s art, as well as 3-d objects where we take a studio photo of the item. Call us to describe your needs, we are sure to find a solution that works.

Memento Family Archive Service
Safeguard Your Family’s Visual Assets
Here’s a problem so many of our customers encounter eventually: the family goes through some sort of transition, such as the passing of a loved one, or moving mom in with a relative. That can leave you with boxes and boxes of all sorts of photo stuff. Memento has years of experience tailoring a solution to fit exactly your situation. We call this our Memento Family Archive service.
Should you choose our Family Archive Service, we tailor a program to fit your situation, providing you an estimate before you commit to a big expenditure. In a typical project, your scan files are automatically stored to Gold Archival Disks, rated to last at least 100 years. We also give you a thumb drive version or hard drive version, for convenience. Then, we return your originals packaged in museum-grade archival storage boxes & internally packed in PVC-free archival-grade plastic bags. You also receive a printed Reference Book, with generously sized thumbnail prints of every photo. Your Reference Book and Archival Storage system will have labels that cross-reference with the DVDs containing your scanned photos. With Memento’s MFA service, you can actually find and enjoy the photos you scanned!
