You don’t want to be hood-winked. You don’t want it be like going car shopping. So this is why you need to be smart, savvy?
• Make sure that the company you go to are the people ACTUALLY doing the conversions.
• You don’t want them going to an outside vendor. Sadly, in most cases this often happens & quality control is lost. Who knows what could happpen to your memories? They could be completely ruined and do you want to take that chance? I didn’t think so. All of us at Converting VHS to DVD do NOT want that to happen to you!
• We have been converting VHS to DVDs since the dawn of the DVD. We are experts on the video conversion process. We want to maintain that everything is at its most optimum quality and in order to do this, we keep every conversion “in house.”
• Honesty and quality are our #1 priorities. Sugar-coating sounds sweet but being direct will help the process run smoothly and in a timely fashion. (Gotta love the sugar puns)
• Like a tattoo, you should NEVER shop by the lowest price. You shop by quality and reputation. That’s how you know the company is great. This is why you should come get your conversions done by Converting VHS to DVD, 372 Squire Road, Revere, Massachusetts.
I know what you’re thinking and yes, it is a reference to Michael Jackson’s song.
This post has absolutely nothing to do with MJ and everything to do with where you should store your vintage VHSs.
FIRST AND FOREMOST! NEVER keep them in the attic. There’s no insulation, which means when it’s cold, it is coollddd. Antarctic cold. Like you’re standing outside in the mild of a snow storm cold. And then the heat. Heat rises. It feels like a sauna up there. You don’t want to subject your precious memories to those kinds of extreme temperatures.
ALSO! DO NOT leave them in your basement! Like the attic, the basement gets cold. Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t basements usually located under ground? The ground gets cold. And it gets damp. You do not want your VHSs anywhere near places that can get wet. It’ll ruin everything.
The best possible place to store your VHSs would probably be to keep it in the closet. (Do you get the reference now?) It’s room temperature. It’s dry. It’s easily accessible. And you can always make sure they are unharmed!
5 Dont’s on how to care for your VHS when converting to DVD
NEVER rewind your VHS/Film
—> it will tear the oxide off of the tape and that could ruin your memories! And that’s the last thing you want to do!
DO NOT continue to re-watch your beloved wedding/vacation videos.
—> Yes, it is nostalgic. Yes, it sparks lovely feelings. BUT every time they are watched, analog information gets ripped off which makes it harder for us to convert it!
—> Let the professionals handle it. That’s us. We are the professionals.
When transferring your precious slides/pictures to video, DO NOT handle them with your finger tips!
—> your skin has natural oils and said oils can ruin the delicacy of your slides/film
—> it is a good idea to number all the slides/videos in the order you want them in
—> you want text? Where ever you want them, place what you want written in between the corresponding slides
—> when handling slides for example, handle them on each side of the slide instead of just grabbing them all willy nilly
DO NOT send them in the mail!
—> who knows what your precious memz will come in contact with!
—> for example- if it comes in contact with any type of magnet, the oxide will be damaged as will your beloved memories.
IF IT IS DAMAGED DO NOT REPAIR IT YOURSELF. I REPEAT- IF IT IS DAMAGED, DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR IT YOURSELF.
—> i’m sorry. We are the experts, not you. And in order to ensure optimized perfection, you need to let us do what we do best and thats make memories last forever.
