Convert photos to digital files

Photo Negative Slide

Use our Epson Perfection V600 scanner to scan photos, negatives and slides and convert them into – JPEG, Bitmap, TIFF, PDF files. You can save these files on a thumb drive, or save them in the cloud. You can scan multiple photos, two negative strips, or four slides at a time. The software provides a variety of adjustment modes to improve the quality of your scans.


Copy VHS tapes to DVD


Our Funai VHS recorder converts your VHS tapes to .MOV files saved on a DVD. You can later convert these files to .MP4 files. Save all those home movies and tapes of the kids’ school plays. The VHS conversion occurs in real time, so a two-hour video takes two hours to save onto the DVD. Bring a book, or borrow one here! Commercial tapes cannot be copied.  You can copy onto a DVD-R or DVD-RW disk (but not onto a DVD+R or DVD+RW disk).


Convert cassette tapes to MP3 files


Convert your Cassette tapes to .WAV files with our ION Tape-2-PC converter. .WAV files can be converted to .MP3 files, if you prefer. Like the VHS tapes, this conversion runs in real time.


Cut fun shapes


Cut shapes out of paper, cardstock, vinyl, iron-on, fabric and more.  Design your project with Cricut Design Space, then cut with our cricut.  We have 12"X12" and 12"X24" mats in standard, light and strong grip as well as the fabric grip mats.  We have standard blades, deep cut blades, and fabric blades. [Cricut Design Space does not work on all computers.  If you want to use one of our laptops, please reserve the Cassette converter for the same timeframe.]


Take Great Pictures


Our 32" X 32" X 32" Photobox has four led dimable light bars and a light defuser so that you can get exactly the light you need for the perfect picture.  White, Black, and Tan backgrounds are available.  Take your picture from the front or from the top.  Recommended for objects smaller than 23.6” X 23.6” X 23.6”.
