One of the most popular questions we get – other than what kind of media can you digitize – is how long does the digitization process take?
Hey, we get it! Your memories are important to you and you want to make sure they come back to you in a safe and timely manner. That’s why we do our best to make the process as quick and convenient for you as possible. It’s also why we provide you with updates along every step of the way so you know exactly where your memories are throughout the entire process. Transparency is key.
So, let’s get to the reason you’re here – a timeline breakdown of our average digitization process.
Typically, our digitization process takes approximately 10-12 weeks, and that’s once we receive your loaded up KODAK box at our production facility. So once we get the box filled with your memories, you can aim around that 10 week timeline for the process to be completed. But what about shipping?
In addition to the actual digitization procedure, we have to allow time for shipping. That timeline typically calls for 3-6 days depending on your location.
Note: If you’re organized and ready to load up your box, you can help speed up this part of the process; otherwise, you’ll need to factor in the time (days) it takes you to gather your old media and load it into the box.
As you can imagine, we get an influx of shipping orders during the holiday season. ‘Tis the season, right?
After all, with so many opportunities to see friends and family, digitization makes a great, long-lasting gift. As a result, we try our best to get all orders shipped and digitized in the same above timeline, but it may run longer due to the high volume of orders being placed and received. But again, that’s what’s great about our up-to-date notifications – you’ll never be in the dark about where your memories are in the process and when you can expect them.
So, let’s add it all up. If the digitization process typically takes 10-12 weeks and each leg of the shipping process takes 3-6 days, you’re looking at a little under 8 weeks on the short end and 12 weeks on the long end.
In the end, the timeline still beats turning digitization into a pricey DIY project for yourself.
