Packaging your Memories for Digitization

By Dillon Wallace

There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. Digitizing your old memories is the best way to ensure their survival. But digitization is almost useless if the pieces of media you want digitized are broken or damaged upon arrival. After all, we’re dealing with decades old tapes, film reels, photographs and more.

We know how important your family memories are to you, which is why we don’t take shipping your precious cargo of nostalgia lightly.

After all, we didn’t just invent the original mail-in film developing model. We perfected it. Which is why our mail-in digitization boxes are the perfect way to preserve your past. From your first steps to your “I dos”, we’ve been there to help you capture every milestone. Now, we’re here to help preserve them.

Crush-proof box for the win

We’ve all gotten a package in the mail that looks like it fell off the truck more than once. Dented corners, mangled flaps, a terrible tape job – something that looks less like a package and more like it was a dog chew toy for a hot minute. That’s why we package all your irreplaceable media into our durable, crush-proof boxes. Plus, every one of our pre-paid, mail-in boxes comes with packing liner to give you that extra bit of comfort, so you know your memories are safe and secure.

Track it like a hawk

Damage isn’t the only thing people tend to worry about when shipping anything near and dear. Ever had a package get lost? Not so fun. That’s why we provide you with up-to-date tracking information on your box, so you know exactly when and where your memories are during their digitization destination. We even give you updates on the digitization process once in our facility, so you’re not in the dark about your memories’ whereabouts.

How you can help play it safe?

We do everything we can on our end to make sure your treasure trove of family vacation footage, first Christmas photos, little league championship tapes and everything else close to your head and heart stays safe and sound. But we can’t do it all.

When packaging your old tapes, photos, cassette tapes and film reels, be sure include any individual tape boxes, cassette packages or film canisters to make transport go just that much smoother. If you’ve got a bunch of photos and film negatives, toss those in a manila envelope to help protect them. If you don’t have individual boxes for all your tapes, it’s not a big deal, but just try to take the necessary precautions on your end, so that when we receive them we can hit the ground running on getting you your memories back to you quickly and safely.

And if you’re still in doubt, a little bit of bubble wrap never hurt anything.

You’ve already made the safe choice to digitize and essentially save your aging media, but it doesn’t stop there. Make sure that you safely package your old analog media and we’ll take care of the rest. It’s our goal to give you peace of mind throughout your digitization time.
