About Us

We are PhotoPanda

You have found the experts at mail-in photo digitizing. Our team of experienced technicians uses state-of-the-art scanning equipment and techniques to carefully scan your photos and convert them into high-quality digital files.

We are a small team who loves what we do each day. While PhotoPanda is a new company, we are composed of well-trained digitizing technicians, all who have been preserving history since 2018. Our technicians have a passion for preserving history, because we believe in a digital future everyone can enjoy. This philosophy of protecting what’s precious drives our development of new and exciting scanning techniques.

We started as a small friends-and-family business in California but have now opened our doors to the entire United States. Since then, our tightly-knit organization has automated large parts of the digitizing process which allows us to keep prices as low as possible.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to helping you preserve and share your precious memories.

Focus On What Matters

We understand that your photos are more than just images – they are memories of the people, places, and moments that are important to you. That’s why we take great care to handle your photos with the utmost care and attention to detail. We also offer a range of options to suit your specific needs, whether you want to scan a few photos or an entire photo album.

In addition to photo scanning, we also offer secure online storage solutions to keep your digital photos safe and accessible. At PhotoPanda we are proud to be a trusted provider of photo scanning services, and we strive to provide exceptional customer service and support.

We Cherish What’s Important

We believe the world is made a better place when we treasure what’s important. Our organization gives a majority of its operating revenue to charities like the WWF, Open Source Software foundations, and other causes supporting a brighter future.

Our mission is to contribute more than we take.

PhotoPanda splits its operating profit evenly between the following groups and organizations:

World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
