What you do

All you have to do is sort your cherished photos into batches of same or similar-sizes into ziplock bags. Tip: Putting them right-size-up will save you time and money later in rotating them on your computer, but is not necessary for us to scan them. Either deliver them to us in town (we can pick them up from you), or ship them to us. Contact for shipping address.

VHS to USB Conversion

Magnetic media, including DVDs, degrades taking with it the audio and the video that captured your cherished life experiences.

Don't let time steal your memories!

Transfer your VHS tapes to a USB or archival quality, gold DVDs—lasting 100+ years

We recommend USB drives because they allow you to edit photos, create slideshows, and share more easily than a DVD.
