10 Reasons to Use Two Squares vs. the Competition for Photo, Slide, and Negative Scanning
1. Having Options
Two Squares provides a photo scanning service featuring three levels of quality. Plus, our higher quality level is less expensive than standard quality work from many competitors. If you want low-priced digitally converted slides and images, our standard quality package provides excellent results.
2. Expert Slide and Photo Pre-Treatment
Capturing the best scan requires the cleanest possible slides or photos. That’s why Two Squares hand-cleans every slide and picture before scanning photos to digital formats or discs.
Two Squares uses a distributed air network and filtration system in our facility. This network and system capture dust from your images before we begin our photo-scanning services. We can also hand-remove fingerprints from photos and slides.
3. Expertise With Fragile Media
Due to age or condition, some pieces of media are more sensitive than others. Fortunately, Two Squares has flatbed scanners for fragile media. Auto-feeding scanners can damage your old photos, curling them through the feed rollers of these devices. Our standard quality process uses gentle auto-feeding scanners. If an image or slide doesn’t fit through our auto-feeding scanners, they go on our flatbed scanners.
4. The Quality of Our Blank Media
After converting slides or photos to digital formats, it’s critical to use excellent blank media. That’s why Two Squares’ slide and photo scanning services use high-quality blank CDs and DVDs. These discs last for decades. If you want discs that last even longer, Two Squares offers 100-year and 1,000-year discs. You can also bring or ship flash drives or external hard drives to store your converted photos.
5. Multiple Resolution Options
Our company’s slide and photo scanning services offer multiple resolution options to suit your needs. If you plan to view scanned images on a computer, HDTV, or print 4’x6’ images, our standard resolution option is an excellent choice. If you desire to print images from your converted photos and slides at dimensions larger than 4×6, our high-resolution option is best.
6. Expert-Level Post-Processing
An important step as Two Squares digitally converts slides and photos is post-processing. After Two Squares scans your images, we use Photoshop to post-process them. Our expert image conversion team carefully corrects the color, tone, and contrast of your images.
We also deliver you your original and auto-corrected images if you prefer to perform your own corrections. You can also have a Two Squares technician hand-correct your images. For more significantly damaged, worn, or faded images, we also offer extended image restoration services.
7. 100% In-House Work
Two Squares performs all of its services in-house. This means you’ll never worry about us outsourcing our work and shipping your media across cities, states, or countries. Plus, Two Squares barcodes and tracks every piece of media we get through our entire capture and conversion processes.
8. Unmatched Support
Two Squares is a small team of passionate media capture and conversion experts. This quality means you can talk to who is converting your media. We’re happy to explain the details of what we do in a friendly manner.
9. Saved Files
Two Squares saves your originally captured files from images and slides for 30 days. Our company also saves our final deliverable files or disc images for at least six months. Having these files temporarily saved is helpful if you misplace your original conversions, accidentally corrupt your files, or lose your discs.
10. High-Quality Results for a Low Price
Two Squares offers incredibly affordable slide and photo conversion services. Our photo scanning service prices start at $0.59, offering lower prices for larger image and slide scanning projects. Some of our competitors charge $0.89 or more for lower-quality slide and photo scans. And their prices don’t don’t include image cleaning or post-processing.
