$99 Minimum Order

As a premier bulk scanning and digitization facility, Memory Fortress has always maintained a $99 minimum order size since we opened for business in 2015.

Memory Fortress encourages customers to send in larger quantities of old memories to digitize, rather than 1-2 videotapes or a small handful of pictures or slides.

We are best at the larger, more complex orders that involve multiple family members or even several generations of an extended family.

Memory Fortress has partnerships with smaller local scanning facilities that are better equipped to handle orders in the $30-75 range, and we will direct customers to those facilities when appropriate.

Handling Charge

There is a $15 handling charge for all orders covering the costs of all the little extras that enhance the customer experience. 

First and foremost among these benefits is a lifetime emergency backup of all data, which means that if your house burns down or is flooded, and you lose all of your personal belongings, your precious memories are safely backed up with us. 

Just give us a call or shoot us an email if you want us to retrieve your backed-up memories for you.

We cover other costs: bubble wrap and other packing material, boxes, tape, stickers, thank you notes, and data entry into multiple redundant systems designed to safeguard your data and memories. 

As always, return shipping is 100% free to the customer. Memory Fortresw All Product Pricings pays for all return shipping.

Military Discount

Memory Fortress was founded by supporters and past members of the United States military forces. 

We have a firm allegiance to this country, its traditions, and the various uniformed services, including military, law enforcement, and firefighters.

As such, we proudly offer a blanket discount of 5% on the entire order for any member, former member, or proud supporter of our men and women in uniform. 

Just mention that you fall into one of these categories, and you will receive a 5% discount. Additionally, anyone you refer to us will receive this discount as well.

Have Other Video Tape, Movie Film, Or Documents?

I have videotapes (VHS, Hi8 and 8mm, VHS-C, and MiniDV)


  • If the videotape is in its case, please leave it there, with a label. Your digital file will be named with that label. “Christmas 1991” sounds much better than “Tape 4.”
  • Group all of the tapes if possible. Processing videotapes requires different equipment than other forms of media, and we can get started much more quickly if we aren’t searching for it.
  • Your tapes will ultimately come back on a DVD … one DVD for each video tape. If you want all of your tapes on flash drives as well, we can do that. Please keep in mind that very large flash drives are expensive, but we can put up to 250GB of movies on a single flash drive if you really want that.

I have reel-to-reel movie film


  • Please keep reel-to-reel film grouped together as well.
  • Identify the size of each reel. This will give you good ideas of both length and cost.
  • Recognize that smaller reels will be stitched together during processing to create a single longer movie. If you send eight reels about three inches in diameter (which is about 50 feet per reel), you will receive back one single reel of 400 feet, stitched together. Your DVDs will have several files on them that can be played as a single longer movie.
  • Reel-to-reel movies, by definition, did not have any sound. There won’t be any audio on your DVD when you receive it.

I have documents and/or books


  • Grouping is critical, because we create searchable PDF files from the groups.
  • Labeling the groups is also critical; these labels will be the names of the files.
  • Remove as many staples, paper clips, binding clips, etc. as possible while maintain the integrity of the groups. We have to charge for all the unbinding and we will keep things in groups but we do not normally rebind items. This saves you money.
  • Leave detailed instructions. A lot of what we get are old letters. And legal documents. The majority of our phone calls with customers during the processing phase involve document orders.
