  • I'm an artist and have used their digital scanning service. The work is placed face up on a large (4'x8') bed with a vacuum surface that keeps the work flat while it slowly rolls underneath a wide format camera. They give you your scan on a disc and save a backup. This is great for some type of artwork. Some adjustments in Photoshop are needed. A scan costs $100 but you can scan multiple images in one scan and if you join their organization you receive 25% off. Great for some art but not necessarily for everything.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
