HomeDVD Service request Order Forms


Download the order forms you need that match your transfer requirements. Please read carefully before using.

A complete Shipping Kit is made up of a shipping instruction sheet, a contact sheet (w/ signed Term and Conditions), applicable order form(s) and a shipping label – with or without a Commercial Invoice if shipment is international.  All of these documents can be downloaded here from this page.

The Order forms you download here are made up of several sections, one, the shipping instructions that meet both local or international requests, two, will have the applicable order form for the media transfer you are interested in and three, our standard Terms and Conditions.  Fill in what you can or want, along with your signature on the Terms and Conditions sheet.  Fill in any additional information you feel will make your order a successful delivery. Use extra paper if need be. Please read all of the enclosed documents carefully to ensure an accurate description of your request is conveyed.  Please write or check your selections clearly.

International orders will require a Commercial Invoice if you plan to use a bonded courier like FedEx or UPS (recommended).  A blank form is available for download. The local FedEx or UPS store can help you fill out these forms. Declare a value of less than $20 total for your shipment(s). Used video cassettes and old film reels have no real monetary value in the eyes of the shipping services and in precedent.  Liability is limited to media item replacement only – not content.

The Commercial Invoice requirement can be avoided if you use the postal service or use our free Shipping Kit service (shipping forms will already be filled out for you).  If you plan to use the postal service please make sure you use an expedited level of service that provides insurance and a tracking number.  International orders using the Postal Service is not really recommended.  Tracking services if necessary to exercise are more difficult once your package crosses the border.

SD and HD Film Transfer forms – Express Services
This selection is bundled with the Shipping Instruction, Terms And Conditions and the SD/HD Express Film Transfer forms.

The SD Express service is now available

Just $0.14/ft of film direct to DVD in SD and…
for just $0.22/ft of film in HD to DVD in AVCHD format – 1920×1080 with 4:3 blackpillars.

Choose this film transfer service for a fast and economical way of digitizing your home movies in either Standard Definition (SD) or in High Definition (HD) video format. Our Express system supports 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm films.  If your films have embedded audio on a magnetic stripe, they are captured and processed at the same time at no extra cost.  We do not support the rare 8mm mag-audio in this Express service, but do in our Archival service.

Express SD offers AVI DV films masters on DVD or hard drive at an additional $0.05/ft.  Express HD offers AVCHD video right to  DVD that is playable on standard Blu-ray players or for the DIY in you, as unauthored AVCHD on a USB memory stick.

Please be aware that…   our Express system will produce video that is somewhat softer looking than our sharper Archival system just due to the blending of the digitized film frames when the film to video speeds are translated to video.  This is true for all real time systems.  Also be aware that there may be some image cropping taking place and that some mild flicker may be present.  All films are inspected for breakage, poor sprockets and fresh leader replacement before being digitized.

If considering a transfer of your 8mm films to HD, please talk to us for an assessment.

The HD Express service will be fully on-line in October of 2010.
