Congratulations! You have decided to secure your collection of irreplaceable family photos.
Step 1. Simply gather your photos, videos and albums in one place. Time to declutter and enjoy your precious memories. Designate one area in your residence to gather all your photos, videos, albums on shelves, boxes, drawers, frames, albums.
Step 2. You have the option of leaving your photos as they are - It's best to least handle photos. Fingerprints and smudges can easily be detected. We use special cotton gloves to handle and process your precious photos. Although we clean each photo, this helps us speed up the process of photo prep. If you prefer, separate your photos into different categories, labeling each category marking on the envelopes with labels would help. Make sure there is no glue at the back of photo.
Step 3: How to prepare your photos for shipment or bringing to us: Bundle your photos up to 25 photos, SAME size in each envelope anyway you prefer by themes, such as family trip, office party, birthday celebration and so on or just simply have them in numerical order. Or bundle them in envelopes by year. This will allow us to make custom folders for you on a DVD or External Hard Drive. You could also bundle them in numerical order, without themes. You could always work on those files once they are digitized and rename them.
We do not digitize copyrighted photos and videos
Step 4. Prepay your orders you ship - it's best always to contact us before shipping - check the order form for estimate.
When shipping your boxes and albums of photo, go to the nearest USPS, UPS or Fedex store and use their sturdy shipping boxes. You would need to provide us with the tracking number. Email us with the filled out form attached, as well as confirm and sign our legal term of service. It's best to contact us first if you have any question! Let us know what format you like your video tapes digitized to. Otherwise videos would be in .vob, which will have all the files for future editing.
Step 5. The digitization process: Once we receive your precious and irreplaceable bundles, by postal service, we immediately contact you and confirm receipt. To bring your collection to us, it's by appointment.

Q: Where is scanning and transfers done?
A. All work is done in New York.
Q: When is the best time to save my family's legacy?
A: We get many emergency photo transfer requests for memorial services. Sadly, an unexpected family events are inevitable. We suggest to be prepared and get your collection professionally digitized. You never know how soon you might need them in digital format.
It would be very useful for various occasions: celebrations, milestones, weddings, digital scrapbooking, writing your memoir, just to name a few.
Also those involved in divorce or separation situations, having copies of photos and videos is the last thing you want to think about. How about one sibling having all the photos and the others not having access to due to various family situations?
We learned from people we talk to, they get upset by shabby work done at some stores, as their digitized photos had streaks. This wouldn't happen with us. We check the final files for quality, before handing your precious irreplaceable collection to you.
We often see people who post family photos scanned by regular scanners and we could see it's of very low quality. Your family's photos deserve to be digitized professionally.
