Discover the Classic Memories Difference

Have you seen headlines like, “My house burned down, and I lost everything,” or “I accidentally deleted ten years of photos”? These are preventable tragedies that happen almost daily.

Backing up your photos, videos, and digitized memorabilia to both a computer and the cloud is the best way to preserve your irreplaceable images and family history. But where do you start?

Let’s say that you finally cleared out your attic and found a treasure trove of old family photos, boxes of homemade videotapes, audio cassette tapes, and 35mm slides. It’s a collection of priceless family memories that may span many generations. How will you preserve all these beautiful memories safely? 

Don’t just hand over your personal tapes and photos to just anyone. Some companies can ship your precious items to an unknown third-party. If you try and call the company, all you get is a canned automated response. There is a much better and safer option.

The first step is to contact the experts at Classic Memories for a free consultation. You will speak to a live customer service representative, not a recording. 

We can digitally transfer all your videotapes, CDs, irreplaceable printed documents and photographs or 35mm slides to the cloud or a hard drive so you can preserve your complete collection. Our difference is that we do everything in-house.

Complete Digital Transfer Services Available

Let us take your old media and carefully convert them into a new digital format that you can easily manage from the cloud or a computer hard drive.

Some of the media we digitally transfer includes:

  • Print Photographs
  • Slides
  • Negatives
  • Paper Documents
  • Digital Pictures
  • VHS Tapes, VHS-C Tapes, and S-VHS Tapes
  • MiniDV Tapes and Mini DVDs
  • 8mm Video Cassette Tapes: Video 8, Hi8 and Digital 8
  • MicroMV Tapes
  • PAL VHS Tapes
  • SECAM VHS Tapes
  • Digital Video Files
  • Standard Audio Cassette Tapes up to 120 minutes
  • Micro Cassette Tapes
  • Digital Audio Files: MP3, WAV, etc.
  • CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs

We scan and digitize your media, then upload them to a cloud service, USB, or external drive of your choice. You will receive all original media in the same condition as you sent it.

We can transfer your digitized collection to a variety of storage or print options depending upon the media. For example, some customers want to transfer photos into archive quality photo books. Others want to create memorable custom digital slideshows on DVDs, Blu-rays, and MP4 Videos.

If you need to preserve videotapes, you have the option of digitally transferring them to DVDs or MP4 digital files. 

And…we didn’t forget about your audio collections. The pros at Classic Memories can transfer your audio cassette tapes, CD collection, micro cassette tapes, and other audio files into new CDs, MP3, WAV, or other current digital technologies. 

You’ll love the results, we guarantee it.
