Default Balancing scan size/resolution

I've got a project where I have to scan 100 8x10 B&W photos for printing @(8x10), burn them on CDs, and send them to a print shop. I know scanning should be @ 300dpi but the file size I'm getting is HUGE(750k).


My question is how much can I can compress the file and still get a high rez print? What should I be targeting as an ideal file size? Thanks. Vincent
