    Lab for Drum Scans

    There are some local places that will do drum scans, but I'm looking for a more cost effective lab. Do you guys have any recommendations for any online companies that will scan at a lower price since they can work with more volume?

    I think we need more information about the services and prices you have locally. Your expensive may be another person's budget friendly.

    Thanks for the information Bruce. Making a note of your services.

    I need to be able to print over 40 inches on the large side. The labs are asking $100+ per scan.

    I can get a 100+MB 16 bit file from my 1DsIII and it will print around 13x19 at 300 ppi.

    I too offer drum scanning services and can provide your 40 inches @ 300ppi on the large side for less than $100.00.

    What is the size of your films and do they have the image quality that would support the kind of scans that you want in order to print in excess of 40 inches? Basically how fussy are you? You need to convey your objectives clearly to the scanning and printing individuals.

    I found your site with a search prior to asking the question, and your rates look very good. I asked the question without giving any hits of places I had found in hopes of not asking a loaded question by mentioning certain people or companies. I'll likely be in touch with you for some scans when I return from a trip in a few weeks. Nice website by the way. It's very easy to get the info I needed.

    I too offer drum scans to many of the boards members.
    Our website has more details including pricing and a scan size calculator.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
