Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a direct VHS to DVD transfer and a transfer to file?
For tapes to just play and watch, a direct VHS to DVD transfer is your best bet. A real time transfer with no edits. We can also transfer your tape to MPG-4 or other digital format. Ready to edit and share. Many folks get both DVDs and digital versions.
Whats your normal turnaround?
Usually about a week or two. Larger collections can take closer to several weeks. Let us know your timeframe and we’ll aim to deliver.
Can you edit and cleanup footage?
Definitely. The transfer process itself can improve the picture. We’ll be glad to take a look at what you need and give you an estimate of the price and time involved.
How Do I Get Started?
Several ways. Call for an estimate or get pricing online. When you’re ready, you can bring your items to either our Hampton Roads or Richmond locations and pick up when order is complete. Or, you can start your order and handle payment online.
What kind of CD/DVD packaging do you offer?
The basic way is to get your discs in bulk. The next step up would be a paper or vinyl sleeve. Many folks like to go with a clear sleeve or jewel case, clamshell or trimpack and let the on disc print be their “cover”. We also offer retail ready jewel case packages with printed insert and shrinkwrap as well as digipaks and printed “eco” cardboard sleeves.
How about “eco wallets” and digipaks?
A “greener” approach to packaging is definitely the way things are headed. The most common piece we offer is a simple full color printed jacket. Most cardboard products require both printing and gluing to assemble, so the turnaround time is closer to 10 business days. Also, the general of thumb is that the more you do, the cheaper per disc it gets.
I have a picture I need to be my cover. Will that work?
Revolve can print cover inserts for projects with cases. We can provide templates for your artwork. If you have the pieces, but they need to be laid out for print, we can definitely help. You can send us your pics and text and we can design it from there. Estimates on request.
