Earlier this month, Transition Plus, a post-high school program in Minneapolis, opened up a business within the school. The business is called 3-D (Discover Digital Documents) whose mission is to teach computer-based employment skills and to provide training to students with disabilities who are moving toward competitive jobs. 3-D is now ready for customers!
Here is what the business offers:
- Have you ever wanted to digitalized your old photos? 3-D can scan your photos, slides, and negatives to put them on a CD or Picasa, a picture organizer on Google.
- 3-D can also scan all your important documents and put them on a password-protected website.
- Also at 3-D, they will be able to convert your old VHS tapes into DVDs so you can enjoy your memories forever.
- The lab also has a laminator for your laminating needs.
Students with disabilities who are 18 to 21 years old are the employees of 3-D. Every student who works in the 3-D lab is attending Transition Plus this year. Projects take approximately two weeks to complete.
3-D offers its services to the public and to Minneapolis teachers. Prices vary depending on what you want done. Prices are very inexpensive since 3-D keeps prices below other businesses. There are also discounts if you want many photos scanned.
The 3-D lab is located inside the Transition Plus building at 3320 Elliot Avenue South in Minneapolis. To request a service or for more information, call 612-668-4100, then ask for 3-D. The lab is open between 8 am until 4 pm, Mondays through Fridays. Or you can e-mail 3-D at email@example.com. Check out 3-D for your document needs!
