Scrapbooks and Albums

You document special memories that make your albums unique, such as: dates, stories, accomplishments, personal feelings, family quotes, etc. You can store your film negatives in a firebox or safe deposit box, but will you remember all of those special moments well enough to recreate the journaling? You have spent countless hours and many dollars documenting your memories, now is the time to preserve and protect them!

When your albums are scanned, saved on CD/DVD and kept in a secure place, you can:
* Recreate pages or your entire album in the event of damage or loss
* Share your albums with family and friends without giving up your original album
* Send your favorite layouts via email
* Upload layouts to the website of your choice
* Use a layout as a screen saver or wallpaper on your PC

We specialize in scanning oversize albums: 12"x12", 12"x15" and welcome any size album from 3"x5" to 12"x15". We individually scan each layout without stitching! We complete all work in a clean environment and every album will be handled as if it were our own! You have the option to preserve your album to CD/DVD or memory stick for a minimal fee. We will be glad to explain the difference in media to help determine what will best meet your needs.

Prices for our services are based on the size of the original album and are separated by 8x8 or smaller and 8 1/2x11 or larger. Please see our current price list below for details.


When you have your album preserved to CD or DVD, the following features are included:

High-resolution files for album recovery in the event of damage or loss
* Low-resolution files for sharing via email or uploading to a website
* 2 (two) complete copies of album on CD or DVD with custom label
* Temporary storage of CD or DVD at our offices

Also available for an additional charge:
* Additional copies on CD or DVD

Service Prices are listed at the end of this page.


High-resolution files                                                      
Utilizing the latest equipment technology and computer software, we can produce sharp, seamless digital replicas of your album pages, which will show vibrant colors within your photographs, clear text of your journaling, dimension of your paper and embellishments. We use various Adobe products, the leader in digital imaging software, to create outstanding replicas that everyone will enjoy. Our standard high-resolution file is 300 ppi utilizing 8-bit RGB color, an image mode that can contain hundreds of colors per channel, which provides very high quality prints. It is better to save now in a higher resolution to allow for a wide range of end uses and transferring to updated storage media in the future. You can always lower the resolution at the time of use, but you cannot increase the resolution in the future and maintain clarity. We will perform basic color, lighting, brightness/contrast corrections for each scanned item.

The standard name for each of the files will be 01, 02, etc. All files will be stored in a clearly marked, separate folder on the CD/DVD. (top of page)


Low-resolution files
A low-resolution file of each album page will also be included. Our standard low-resolution is 100 ppi, which is ideal for sharing with family via email and/or uploading to the website of your choice for the purpose of entering layout contests. The name for each file must be the same name as the corresponding high-resolution file. All files will be stored in a clearly marked, separate folder on the CD/DVD.

2 (two) complete copies of album on CD or DVD 
The high-resolution files are very large and depending on the complexity and quantity of the album pages, it may take “a set” of 2-4 CDs to hold all of your information. A CD will hold approximately 18 layouts. The DVD media can easily hold all features of your album copy on one DVD. A DVD will hold approximately 110 layouts. You have the choice of media, CD or DVD, and we will be glad to assist you in determining what best meets your needs. You will receive 2 (two) complete copies of your album preservation in the media of your choice. It is recommended that you refresh and update your archived album every 5 years to the latest media option.

The standard format that we use to burn DVDs is DVD+R. This format can be viewed using your computer with DVD drive.  (top of page)


Temporary storage of CD/DVD copy
A copy of your CD set/DVD will be kept at Scan Your Memory offices for a limited number of days after your order is complete. In the event that you decide in the first few weeks to have additional copies made, we will use our copy on file and fill your order quickly.  (
