Where can I scan a 12 x 12 album page?

[deleted account] ( 21 moms have responded )

I started a traditional scrapbook a few years ago for an awesome trip I took to Italy. I just can't seem to get it done now that my daughter is 15 months old and I have started digital scrapbooking instead. I only did about 7 pages of the book on paper and I want to just scan in the pages that I already did, as well as the paper and embellishments that I bought for the album. Does anyone know where I can scan a 12 x 12 page? I checked out Staples and a few other places and they only scan up to 11 x 14.

Personally, what I would do & have done: Lay a flat piece of either black or white paper that the full 12x12 page will lay on - and the embellishments one at a time. Use bright natural lighting.
Set you camera, in large format, to program or close up shot & take a photo of your pages/embellishments.
Your page is digital then. You'll also be able to crop & adjust the color. (I'm a Creative Memories Consultant too - so I use Memory Manager - and then order through CM's website.)
I did this for some heritage pages & my baby album made last year & I wanted copies of my photos.

I had www.AlbumScanning.com scan all of my albums and photos. They were very helpful at a great price! They can scan album pages all the way up to 17" x 12".

Have you tried Office Max or Office Depot? You can also check out stores that do signs & banners & posters for graphics & such. I used to work with a Graphhics distributer & they had special machines for that kind of stuff. I hope it helps.

I'm not sure if they do it or not, but check with scrappingsimply.com
You can send them an email and ask. I order my digital pages from them and they come back superbly beautiful! And a 12x12 page is only $1.99. That is VERY cheap considering I've seen some places charge $7!

In the past I have gone to the nearest school and most times they are happy to scan things this size.

www.scanmyphotos.com is where I started the search and ended up finding out the name of the machine that some one-stop photo shops are starting to use: Luci scrapbooking kiosk. The places you are checking sound like office supply stores and you really want a photo shop, or something more like a Kinko's. Hope this helps! You may want to google: 12 x 12 scrapbooking scanning and printing, too! :-) Have a good day.

I am a Heritage Makers Consultant, and we have access to scanners that scan 12x12 pages. Its a professional scanner that crops it for you, and it looks really good when done. I am not sure what area you are located, I am in AZ but there are HM Consultants all over. See if you can find one in your area. Scanning cost are very reasonable. You can scan all kinds of pics in a short amount of time compared to traditional scanners.

I know you can use your pages that you made through creativememories.com but I don't know where you can can a 12x12.
I just started my daughters book through them I love I love it so much that I became a consultant for my family and friends and its worked out great.

If you have a scanner it's not that hard to scan one side and then the next and then 'paste' them together using PSE7 or GIMP or something like that and it's free - then again - it helps to have an 11x17 scanner (I sometimes take for granted that I do).

Also, I went into a FedExKinko's and they had a machine I think called a "large format printer"
