Notes:
–DVD’s are created in a way that complies with the total length being approximately 2 hours or less on each DVD. That is the maximum length available on a DVD set to SP quality, which is the quality at which we create your single layer DVD’s. Dual layer DVD’s are available, quoted on a case-by-case basis.

–time lengths of each video cassette are rounded up to the nearest minute, i.e.- a 31 min and 36 second video cassette would be calculated at 32 minutes. Per minute charges are calculated per video cassette, i.e.-if you have two video cassettes of your home movies, and one is 130 minutes long and one is 86 minutes long, the 130 minute video would be 100@.27 cents/minute + 30@.22 cents/minute and the 86 minute video would be 86@.27 cents/minute.

–DVD’s are packaged in a plain paper CD/DVD envelope with a plastic see-thru window. The DVD is identified by a handwritten notation on the paper envelope. We do not put a label on the DVD disc itself. We don’t recommend pasting anything onto the actual disc, as this could come off in your player (not likely, but still a possibility).

–You can personalize the DVD disc by writing on the non-shiny side by using a permanent felt marker. Do NOT use a ball point pen!

–Available at extra cost:
plastic full width DVD library case (no label) (holds 1 DVD) – 1.05 cents each
plastic slimline DVD library case (no label) (holds 1 DVD) – .85 cents each
plastic jewel type (what most CD’s are sold in) case (no label) (holds 1 DVD) – .65 cents each
plastic slimline jewel type (thinner than a commercial CD case) (no label) (holds 1 DVD) – .55 cents each.
If you’d like to see samples of the above, please let me know.

–Custom labeling and packaging available, quoted on a case-by-case basis. This can get quite expensive. If you or someone you know has some word processing computer experience and a printer, I suggest you consider doing this yourself…it can be fun! BUT, if that just isn’t your thing and you really want to ‘dress up’ your memories, please contact me.
