5 of my tapes were cracked and broken during a move and I thought that I would never be able to watch them again. Thanks for saving my tapes.

In essence if you wanted minor editing for a 1 hour mini dv to DVD with a custom menu and 1 extra DVD copy it would be: $10 for straight copy + $5 for minor editing + $5 for custom menu + $10 copy = $30.  You can also mix and match services so 2 8mm to DVD can have the minor editing as described above while 2 other Hi8 to DVD can just be a straight $20 copy.  If you still have any questions please contact us for a personalized quote.

Sending us your Tapes

When sending us your tapes please make sure to properly package them in a box in bubble wrap and try to avoid using packing popcorn. Also shipping using a tracking number is highly advisable. Please do not use UPS ground as their Rates for Customs Clearance into Canada are excessive compared to other couriers. If you can, please use the United States Postal Service's ground shipping as their rates are the most reasonable. To make processing your order easier please label your tapes and include detailed instructions on what services are being performed on which tapes. Turnaround time is about 1 week from the time we receive your tapes but large orders may take longer.  Once the conversions have been finished we will notify you and provide a return tracking number.  Rush orders are also available but are subject to a 15% fee.  If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to Contact Us.

So why DVDs?

Don’t let your memories slip away. Convert 8mm, Hi8, VHS-C, Digital8 and mini DV to DVD and have them preserved for a lifetime!
