Video footage preserves family moments that might otherwise be forgotten, like the day Grandpa wiped everyone's memory with a spy drug. Bring precious records to the digital age with today's Groupon: for $18, you get $40 worth of film digitization services from Solid Gold Memories.
Solid Gold Memories works to quickly and carefully encase ephemeral analog reminiscences in secure digital amber. Nostalgic videographers can convert their handiwork from a variety of formats—including VHS ($20/tape), Betamax (an additional $30), and Hi8—which, if left unpreserved, will gradually lose integrity and decrease in picture quality. After you ship Solid Gold to-be-transferred tapes, footage will be returned in 30 days or fewer on standard DVD or archive-quality gold DVDs (additional $8 each), which can last up to 300 years and make it possible to watch a child's piano recital two million times. For an additional $5, Solid Gold's video virtuosos can arrange each two-hour DVD in chapters and provide a basic navigation menu. In some cases, the shop's scholarly sawbones can salvage physically damaged tapes, and a variety of packing options ensure secure household chronicling.
This Groupon does not cover shipping costs.
