Digitize Your Home Movies
Your memories are irreplaceable. Can you go back and recreate your Wedding Day? Or that trip of a lifetime? Or the birth of your first child? Digitize your collection of VHS tapes and 8mm movie tapes to preserve and enjoy all of your special life moments. You recorded them because you wanted to remember that moment in time.
VHS tapes deteriorate over time and are not a long term storage solution so it is important to transfer them to the newest media to safeguard your memories. Plus, have you tried finding a VCR to play them on recently? You probably don’t have the video camera you recorded your 8mm home movies on either. When was the last time you watched them?
How to Prepare your VHS tapes for Transfer
The process is super simple. Gather all of your old VHS, 8mm, VHS-C, Mini DVD, MiniDV, and Hi-8 tapes. Look in drawers, boxes, and old video cameras so you find them all. Our regular pricing is very competitive, but if you bring in 10+ tapes, it is outstanding. Drop them off at Photo Expressions or ship them to us. Start planning for a super fun movie night. We will call you when your order is ready to be picked up.
We suggest ordering multiple copies to share with other family members and to have as a backup. If you will want to edit the video, make sure to order them in an MP4 format. Our transfers come back to you on a DVD. If you would like them on a USB stick, we can do that for you, or you can also bring in an external hard drive to have your movies transferred to.
All VHS and 8mm video transfers are done in house in our professional photo lab so your tapes are safe and secure. Our trained staff always handle your treasured memories with care and attention. Photo Expressions has a reputation for excellence in customer service and quality.
Once you have your transferred memories back, we always recommend making sure they are backed up safely. One copy is not a good backup procedure. You must have a minimum of 2 copies – one on site (your house) and one off site (a family member’s house, work, safety deposit box , or cloud service).
