Photograph Transfer

Preparing Your Photos for Transfer

  1. Number Your Photos
    • Number all photos in the order that you want them to appear in your transfer. Each photo should be numbered on the back using pencil on an adhesive label if possible. DO NOT use "Post-It Notes" as they often fall off and could delay your order. If you are writing directly on the back of the photo and you omit or misnumber a photo, add a letter to the number (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4, etc.).
    • When numbering your photos, please underline all numbers as the numbers 6 and 9 can be confused with each other. DO NOT use ink or marker on the back of your photos as it can damage the photo behind it.
  2. Select an Opening or Closing 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. Background Music
    Our easy listening music or customized background music is provided free of charge for photo to videotape orders at the time of transfer. We suggest you provide your own music on CDs for added sentimental value.
  4. 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.
