New Sprocket Portals Have Arrived

 New Sprocket Portals Have Arrived

When we rolled out Sprocket, our virtual ordering assistant a few months ago, we initially offered 3 of the 5 portals that were planned! 

 The first three portals for Sprocket were:

We have now launched the 4th and 5th portals for scanning film to digital and processing and scanning outdated film such as discontinued Kodachrome and Ektachrome. 

These self directed portals (especially Portal 4 for Scanning Film to Digital) with the assistance of Sprocket will replace the digital mastering form, and allow you to prepare your own order.  One thing clients love is you can play with the scanning options, and try quoting your job a few different ways to fit your budget, timeline,  and scan quality requirements. This is much faster than waiting for one of our team members to prepare a quote for you, since sometimes there is a bottleneck in this process when we are really busy.  You can create a quote for a single scan, or a dual format master if your job requires more than one type of file format with normal or rush services.

Here is a quick walk through of the process for using Sprocket to Scan film to Digital
