February 28, 2007 – Kodak will launch a scanning service on wheels tomorrow. Called the ScanVan, the Kodak service allows customers in the cities of Southern California and South Florida to submit up to 200 photos to be scanned within minutes for a flat rate of $24.99.
"Instead of having to spend hours to scan photos at home, customers will have the opportunity to digitize up to 200 photos in minutes at a special promotional price," stated the ScanVan website.
Interested customers must register online through the Kodak ScanVan site at http://scanvan.kodakgallery.com/socal/index for a scheduled appointment. After scanning and uploading to the Kodak online Gallery, Kodak returns the photos to users on the spot, according to the site. The ScanVan, equipped with Kodak scanners, will accept photo size from 2 x 2.5 inches to 8 x 10 inches. Additional scans after 200 pictures will be priced at 10 cents per image.
Users will also receive a coupon for a free mini photo book through the Kodak EasyShare Gallery.
