How Our Digitizing Photo, Video, Movies Box Works?

If you’re wondering what to do with old family photos no one wants, you’ve come to the right place. At Heartland Box, we feel that old photographs are special and irreplaceable, but understand they take up a lot of storage space. When you make the heartfelt decision to scan photos to digital, you’re protecting cherished memories for generations to come. And digitizing old photos, videos, and movies frees up space in your house while enabling easy sorting, categorizing, searching, and locating files at a moment’s notice when you wish to share them. 

While you can digitize at home, it requires learning how to digitize photos, videos, and/or movies, and this takes a lot of time, patience, experimenting, and the right equipment, costly. When you let a professional photo scanning service do the heavy lifting, the end result is often better than the original. By choosing Heartland Box, you’re in good company — we’ve preserved more than 100 million memories and counting, with each and every one handled with loving care in the heart of the USA.

Heartland Box's three step process to get your photos, video and movies, scanned


Three Easy Steps to Preserve Precious Memories  

Selecting Heartland Box to digitize pictures is as easy as one, two, three, with our photo scanning boxes! 

  1. SIMPLY ORDER: Order one of four Heartland Boxes, then pack it with videos tapes, printed photos, 35mm negatives or slides, movie reels, and/or audio cassettes. Inside your box, you’ll find barcode stickers for your materials, a domestic UPS shipping label to send your box to our facility, and packing materials to make sure your precious memories travel safely. 
  2. WE DIGITIZE: Once your box arrives at our state-of-the-art facility, our dedicated team of scanning professionals will digitize all of your memories by hand and provide personalized updates every step of the way. Unlike some competitors, we never outsource your memories and handle everything as if it belongs to us. 
  3. YOU ENJOY: You’ll receive your Heartland Box back with your original items in about 3-4 weeks, as well as perfectly preserved digital copies on a USB drive, digital download via the cloud, or a DVD. If you have a specific deadline in mind, please give us a call at 888.332.6699, and we’ll do the best we can to accommodate this.
