Working magic – every day!
Goodbye VCR. Hello Digital Viewing!
Patty and Joe held onto their technology for much longer than expected. They took good care of their devices to ensure they could always view their memories. However, technology can only last so long. Their VCR started to fail, and they decided it was time to update their VHS tapes to a newer format. Joe’s friend recommended Keepsake, so they went there with some hesitation. They didn’t want their memories to be lost or damaged. But, when they arrived, they were reassured that everything was done in-house, and they would get their original tapes back in their original condition. We were able to transfer all their tapes onto a flash drive. With the help of their son, they can now watch their memories on their computer or smart TV.
Forgotten 35mm slides get new life!
Eugene, a Vietnam War veteran, returned home with a collection of slides he refused to look at because of the memories they brought back. Years later, his wife, Betty, found the slides and convinced him to have them scanned and preserved for their grandchildren. Eugene agreed to have it done, but only under the condition that they went to a reputable place and that he didn’t have to look at them. They brought the slides to us, explained the story, and left the box. Betty returned to pick them up and thanked us for helping to preserve Eugene’s history.
From mobile image to stunning canvas!
Stephanie always heard her mom complaining about how all their photos were now on her phone and that she didn’t have anything to hang on her walls. When a post from Keepsake came up on her Instagram showing a canvas print, she got an idea. With her mom’s birthday coming up, she thought it would be cute to have a photo of her printed on canvas for her mom’s wall. She brought us a picture and even though it was a phone resolution, we were able to get it print-ready. Later on, Stephanie came back in to thank us for what we did; her mom was so happy when she opened her gift.
Curious about 8mm film reel content.
Sarah was busy cleaning out her grandparent’s attic and came across a metal container; curious about what was inside the interesting vessel, she opened it up and found multiple 8mm film reels. She had no idea what to do with them but knew she wanted to see the images in motion. She found us online and brought them in the next day. By the following week, we had the reels back to her with the video digitized in a format that she could view! She couldn’t wait to sit down with her grandparents and see them reliving their memories.
Helping clients celebrate milestones.
It had been years of waiting, but finally, Tanisha’s son had a child. Her grandchild! She was over the moon and needed to do something after the birth of the sweet boy, but she didn’t know what. On an afternoon trip to the ice cream shop next door, she saw our product display through the window. She abandoned the ice cream and ran inside, trying to find out as much as she could about what we do. That day, she left with an order for a custom-made tumbler with her grandchild’s picture and a mousepad to give to her son. And of course, she also got her ice cream.
International tape formats? No problem.
Rini lived in Bangladesh when she was younger, so getting her childhood video tapes transferred was a bit more difficult. Some tapes from other countries need different types of equipment to pick up a signal. She needed someone who had access to a PAL player, and that’s where we came in. She was ecstatic when we could help. She brought them in and now, after all these years, she can once again see the home and country she grew up in.
