Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $37, you get a bronze package 60-photo digital slideshow at Digital Shoebox (a $75 value).
Digital Shoebox carefully preserves and reanimates photographs, imprinting the still frames of time onto a DVD slideshow. The DVD montage of birthdays, holidays, and baby's first porcupine incidents are captured and converted into a professional grade slideshow, complete with two songs chosen by the customer as background music. Fond frames fade from one photo to the next with tasteful transitions, lovingly bookended by the caress of opening and closing titles. The final product comes encased in a clamshell DVD case with a custom label and insert. Pictures can be sent by email or standard post, though physical photographs are subject to a scanning fee. Grouponers will receive the DVD approximately two weeks after signing the Digital Shoebox contract.
Though Digital Shoebox has yet to receive many online reviews, here are a few customer testimonials from the company's website:
- Dana Goldstein, owner and operator of Digital Shoebox was professional, dedicated and a pleasure to work with. – Lorraine & Daniel Bills
- Without a doubt, other than our actual daughter, this DVD was the best present my husband ever received. Dana was able to capture the most incredible Daddy/Daughter moments in a [sic] such a timeless way, I couldn’t have found a better way to celebrate their first year together. – Kim & Andrew Spring
