Which storage option is best?

We offer three different options: thumb drive, DVD/CD set, and Digital Access. The best one for you depends on how you intend to access your digital files once you receive them.

Each option has its own advantages! Ultimately, you're going to get the same quality with each product. Here are some of the pros of each one.

Thumb drive — Our standard, USB 2.0 thumb drive is the most popular option. It's great because it's easy to just plug in and view. There's no loading necessary and it pulls right up when plugged into your computer. Additionally, most computers have USB support and should be able to play your thumb drive. If you're wanting to view, edit, and upload, this is probably the best option.

DVD/CD set — If you're not planning on viewing your videos on a computer, but would prefer to watch them on your TV with friends and family, the DVD may be the best option. It's simple and easy to use. Photos and audio items are converted to CD, which still needs to be viewed on a computer though (or a CD player if it's audio!). 

Digital Access — This is by far the best option if you're wanting to share your items with a multitude of people. Instead of having to give them a physical copy of the digitized material, you can simply send them one link that has all of your memories stored on it. You can download it to your computer for permanent storage and so can the people you send it to! You can choose between a one-time download link and a yearly subscription link to keep your files backed up securely on the cloud.

Each option is great, so it really comes down to preference and what you're planning on doing with your digitized memories!
