Placing an order

How do I place an order?

Bring your media to a Costco Photo Center. We will properly scan your photo and process your order.

Can I get multiple versions of one photo for the cost of one photo?

Only one repaired photo is returned per photo. If you require multiple versions of the same photo, you must treat these as separate photo repair requests.

Can I put multiple photos in one scan?

Only one photo per scan, please.

What if I want a different background?

All photo elements must be provided by you. This will avoid speculation, as well as to comply copyright laws.

Low Resolution Image?

Consider that the print will appear dithered. If is a scanned image, re-scan the image and SCALE to target print size of 8x10.
