ScanCafe Selected as Best Scanning Service by Money Magazine

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 2, 2008) - ScanCafe (www.ScanCafe.com), the premier photo scanning and restoration service online, announced today it has been chosen by Money Magazine as the best scanning service in its January 2008 issue. The magazine awarded ScanCafe four stars in its field test to determine which scanning service offered the most quality and value for the price.

During the field test, Money sent 40 prints to six scanning services. Money chose ScanCafe because it "delivered high-quality scans, good color contrast and detail... and offered a low price of 27 cents per print and 19 cents per negative." Money also liked the ability to preview scans online and pay only for the prints chosen.

"We are ecstatic that our incredible value and service were shown as superior to the competition," said Sam Allen, CEO of ScanCafe. "Money's independent field test -- which occurred completely unbeknownst to us -- proves that our outstanding business model is a winner and that you actually can get the best quality at the lowest price with ScanCafe. The article gives Money readers a chance to see an in-depth discussion of ScanCafe's quality and value against other services."

ScanCafe is a photo, negative and slide scanning and restoration service that helps people preserve their most precious memories. ScanCafe has revolutionized the scanning of photos by enabling people to simply mail in their photos, slides and negatives without any pre-sorting required. ScanCafe will then scan, professionally restore and organize all of the images. They then provide customers with access to a secure online library to view and select their newly digitized images. Customers are only required to pay for the images they wish to keep, (with a 50 percent minimum commitment) and all selected images are then scanned to a DVD or CD and shipped back to the customer along with all of the originals. Only ScanCafe offers this unprecedented level of service.

ScanCafe was also featured in the November issue of O Magazine as part of the holiday gift guide. O named ScanCafe to "The O List" as one of the ideal holiday gifts priced between $50-$100.
