Before video and photography, family memories were kept alive through annual reenactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of video digitization, photo printing, and photo restoration at Kimberly Hardin Art School in Aptos.
Kimberly Hardin Art School's staff prints and preserves pictures and videos with a bevy of professional services designed to fight the ravages of time with skillful aplomb. The nonprofit studio's video experts convert VHS tapes to DVDs ($29.99/conversion), transforming out-of-date analog recordings into digital discs and ensuring the longevity of home movies commemorating birthdays or detailing how long heirs must spend in a haunted attic to claim their bequest. Photo restoration ($70/hour; prorated per minute) rejuvenates faded pictures with technological wizardry by brightening colors before yielding a fresh copy of the retouched snapshot. Printing services ($0.39–$1.89/picture) replicate nostalgia-laden 5"x7" and 8.5"x10" glossies in either 300- or 600-ppi resolution, letting customers churn out dozens of high-resolution images of beloved family members, favorite landscapes, and romantic rivals' acne.
