Slide Archiving

Preparing Your Slides for Transfer

  1. Prepare Your Slides
    • Slides should be removed from carousels or slide trays, individually numbered, rubber-banded together and submitted in numbered packs. Each slide needs to be numbered in the upper right-hand corner. While numbering, should you omit or misnumber a slide, add a letter to the number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4, etc.).
    • When numbering your slides, please underline all numbers as the numbers 6 and 9 can be confused with each other. Slides received unnumbered will be numbered at TMT at an additional charge of $.03 per slide.
  2. Select a Title for Your Transfer
    "The Smith Family Memories", "The Adventures of the Wells Family", "The Johnsons" are a few suggestions. If a title is not desired, please indicate NO TITLE on the order form. Otherwise, we will begin your production with the title of "Memories."
  3. Don't Forget to Order Extra Copies
    • Store your master and watch the copy.
    • Copies make great gifts.
    • Share the cost with family and have copies for everyone.
