Film Transfers

Preparing Your Home Movies for Transfer

  1. Number Your Reels
    • If you want your film reels transferred in a specific order, number all reels in the order. While numbering, should you omit or misnumber a reel, add a letter to the number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4, etc.) and cross out any old numbers.
    • When numbering your reels, please underline all numbers as the numbers 6 and 9 can be confused on round reels.
    • Use either stickers or write the numbers directly on the boxes. Post-its tend to fall off.
    • Keep film formats together to avoid extra charges.
  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.
  4. Complete the Order Form
    Use the Tailor-Made Transfers online order form to get an estimated cost of your film transfer and print it out.
  5. Package your reels
    Package your film reels along with your order form and send to the address shown on the order form.
