When you want it done locally and you want it done right

 

We digitize old videos and photos for families across Metro Detroit. We send you a kit, you fill it with your important memories, and we digitize it and send it back to you. Because we’re local, you can also drop off your items at our Southfield location for extra peace of mind.

You can choose to receive your memories on DVD, USB, and Digital Download, or you can have a streaming experience by putting your old videos on your Streaming Device alongside your other movie and TV channels.

At History Creators, we view ourselves as family historians, preservationists, and artisans. Your family's tapes and photos will be treated with the utmost seriousness and care - like they were being preserved for a museum or government archive.

Why choose us:

Reason #2 - Drop off available

Rest assured, we only use the UPS (with tracking) to mail our packages. But some people are still uneasy about mailing their precious photos and movies. We can't blame them - often they only have one copy of each tape or photo.

Because we’re local, you can drop off your items at our Southfield location for a little extra peace of mind. We only mail back your items once they have been successfully digitized.
