Our Story

Here at the The Transfer Lab we're passionate about preserving vintage media, always striving to take special care of your well cared for items and rescue those that somehow became the dog's chew toy.  Like you, we treasure life's recorded moments.  

We started this business (a mission, really) after recognizing the need for a premium quality digital archiving service for those unwilling to risk handing over their precious media memories to what the real professionals in this industry refer to as "Transfer Mills". These are strictly dollar driven, high production, low to no-quality digitizing factories one sees everywhere on the internet. They try to look fancy with their branded mail-in boxes , but lack real substance.  In fact, some of the biggest names in the transfer business use poorly maintained consumer equipment, unqualified personnel and thus yield a substandard final product.  Don't be fooled by the slick packaging and permanent 40% discount.  

The Transfer Lab produces superior results at a fair price.  We are proud of our commitment to doing it right,  and stand behind every transfer we do.  In fact, If we can't get a good transfer out of your media, we're confident no one can.   That's why even our competitors (including other transfer services) come to us for their digitizing needs.  

Yes, we convert media "in-house"; we maintain our professional equipment on-site.  We innovate every day, working to engineer superior techniques to digitally capture media stored on tape and other obsolete formats. Our sole focus is to convert your old analog memories so well that they end up looking as good or better than you remember. 

Our excellent results are realized through considerable technology and hardware investments and more than three decades of multi-media experience and expertise in the professional media conversion and production industries - just one of the reasons individuals, businesses, institutions and universities keep coming back to The Transfer Lab for digital archiving. It's also why we regularly rescue and re-do transfer projects for consumers who were victims of a transfer mill conversions.

If you are looking for reliable, caring professionals to convert your life's recorded moments, consider The Transfer Lab. 

We work really hard to maintain 5-star service and strive to earn your 5-star review. Please let us know how we can help with your media conversion project. 

Thanks for taking the time to see what we offer.
