More Information

Our most popular option!  For $30, we send a prepaid UPS label.  There are no size or weight restrictions, so the bigger and heavier the box, the more you save.  Plus, we set the shipping options with UPS to assure the greatest shipping security possible.  

You pack the box, (pack it tight!) tape it up (use lots of tape!) print out the label and put it on the box.  You can call UPS for a pickup, or drop it off at a UPS store or Post Office.

Choose this option by selecting Prepaid Label on the checkout page

Packing Tips

When shipping your photos to our scanning service, it’s important they arrive safely.

The secret to safe shipping is to pack your pictures tightly into rigid boxes.  Fill all the space in the box with padding so that when you shake the box, there is no movement inside.  Here are some more suggestions:

1

Remove your photos from your photo albums.

If you can’t get the pictures out of the albums, please give us a call.  In most cases, we can scan the entire album page and electronically pull the pictures off the page, but this service is more expensive. Slides in sheet protectors are acceptable as well!

2

Group the photos or slides into stacks

Secure these stacks with rubber bands, baggies, envelopes, cling wrap or aluminum foil in such a manner that they are held tightly together.  Slides are particularly problematic, as it’s their nature to escape and travel about inside boxes.  If you have a stack of slides held together with rubber bands that would come apart if you dropped it on the floor, it’s probably going to come apart inside the box during shipping.  Limiting stacks of slide to 4 inches high and using two rubber bands to secure them works well.  Slides are susceptible to damage if they are loose inside a box.

3

 After collecting all of your photos and/or slides please ship them in a cardboard box.

Please do not ship in envelopes. Even padded envelopes do not adequately protect your photos from becoming damaged, as they can get bent. The best thing for you to ship your pictures and/or slides in is a cardboard box. Fill any space left over in the box with padding so that the photos can’t bounce around inside the box.

4

Photos travel safest in plastic bags, envelopes, or stacked up and held together with a rubber band.

Most photos are not damaged by rubbing against each other during transit.  However, some very old paper photos  can be damaged in this manner, so use your best judgment.  For these very old photos, a piece of padding between each photo ensures safe shipping.

When we have completed your scanning order, we will usually repack your originals into new boxes or bags. 


This service is free, and we do this to assure that your photos arrive safe and sound.  We have partnered with United Parcel Service (UPS) for return shipping, and always ship via UPS ground service.  UPS is the most secure shipping service in the USA, and although they might cost a little more, we think the extra expense is worth it.

With DpsDave, you are receiving the best, most time-efficient services for photo scanning, slides to DVDs, and picture scanning to CDs and DVDs.  At DpsDave scanning service,  your pictures are treated just like our own family photos.
