How Long Does It Take?

It depends on the amount of orders we have in front of yours but generally it takes three to four weeks.  However, if your order is time sensitive, we will meet your deadline.


Do you send my work out?

No, we do all work in house. You can trust us to protect your memories.


My tapes are short, can you combine them to save money?

Our most common way to transfer tapes is one tape to one DVD.  However, if you would like us to combine two tapes on a DVD we are happy to do so if possible.  There is no savings to this as we still charge per tape.


Can you transfer my Disney videotapes?

We are not allowed by law to transfer copyrighted material be it Disney or any other material that has a current copyright.  We respect the right of the artist to get paid.


What is Better DVD or Video File?

That all depends. Our DVD’s play in any machine that is made to play DVDs which makes them easy to use. No special knowledge needed, just put it in the tray and play. Downside is that a DVD format must be transferred to a different format in order to put it up on the web.

A video file, MP4, is more flexible in that you can upload to the web, like YouTube or Google Drive, play on a computer or TV that accepts a USB. Downside is that they require a little more knowledge to play. Not difficult but it requires a bit more.
