WILL YOU RESTORE, ENHANCE, OR IMPROVE MY ITEMS IN ANY WAY?
We always try to get the best quality conversion possible. However, the quality of the transfer ultimately depends on the quality of the original items. We do not offer any sort of restoration, enhancement, or editing of your items. If there is an issue with the original, those issues will translate over to the digital copies.
To be more specific, we do not offer the following: color correction, brightening, HD remastering, combining footage, or otherwise altering the composition of the original media. There are companies out there who specialize in these types of services, but we simply offer a one-to-one transfer.
WHAT IF ONE OF MY ITEMS IS BLANK, DAMAGED, OR CANNOT BE CONVERTED?
What if one of my items is blank, damaged, or cannot be converted?
Great question! It’s not uncommon for a tape to be blank or damaged.
Luckily, we have a system set up for this! Whenever an item cannot be converted for any reason, we are always happy to provide you with a credit for a future order.
For example, if you send in 20 items and 5 cannot be converted, you can include 5 additional items in your next order at no extra cost to you. We’ll waive any invoice or request for payment regarding those items.
