Summer memories are on our minds at DC as we acclimatise to the heatwave that has swept the country. Those days at school spent lying on the playing field, juice boxes and segments of oranges given out during sports day, or even those lunchtimes spent practising your role as a tree in the school play.

The “summer holidays” are coming, and we want to help you reminisce those good old school days as well. Whether it be your own school days or your children we have discounts (and news) for you.

Happy Days!

This year really has felt like a damp squib with Covid constantly lingering over our heads. Especially now with the news that many school’s adorable plays have been axed.

So, to help bring back that joy of the end of term plays and summer beginning, we are running a promotional discount (until 05/07/21) with the code: happydays. So, get 30% off your order and bring back those memories of embarrassing school plays, long summer evenings and times spent with friends this July.

…It’s Almost Time.

I know, I know, I know. We have been saying this for ages, but our new website is just around the corner. And, this time. You can be one of the first to have a sneak peek:

DC's new homepage designThat’s right. We’re turning bright, bold and cheesy! Memories have always been at the heart of Digital Converters, and we wanted to capture that heartwarming, embarrassing and retro warmth captured in your analogue videos. So, here it is! Warm greens, deep juicy oranges and simplicity in its finest.

The structure of our website is the same. However, we hope that ordering will be more accessible by bringing more information to our ordering pages.

DC's new order page

 

Many of you will be familiar with our two-step ordering system. We have kept our simple system, but you will notice that more information will be available on our ordering page to prevent minor mishaps.

We will also have the option to create an account to help keep track of your order and have a faster checkout when you come back again.

Share Your Memories

Memories, memories, memories. We don’t just want to convert them – we want to see them too! Retro videos are a trend that is just not dying in this social era. One up those younger relatives by sharing your authentic videotapes on social media –  and don’t forget to tag us in your post!

Ah, Spring. How we have missed you. Now the sun is shining and spring cleaning is over, we are working towards new beginnings at Digital Converters.

Our Team Is Blossoming

With fresh starts in the air, we have welcomed four new talented staff to our team over the last month. We are incredibly proud of our video technicians who have helped our conversion team grow with their knowledge and ideas.

Ding Dong, The Wedding Bells Are Ringing

There is no better way to celebrate new beginnings than with wedding videos! Weddings are one of our most popular videos to be digitised. Whether a film transfer from the 1940s or a 90’s Hindu marriage on VHS to DVD, we have seen and adore them all.

If you are interested in the history of filming weddings, we have a fascinating article you can read to help you get into that romantic mood. Also, stay tuned for our new blog post coming out this month on the best anniversary presents to buy your partner in 2021!

Alternatively, if you have an anniversary coming up (or know someone who does), get your video digitised using our promo code: 25OFF. We also offer gift cards for those of you who are tight on time.

 Want a Bigger Discount?

Join our mailing list to be the first to know of new promotions and larger discounts. Currently, you can receive a 35% discount on your order if you have subscribed to our emails.

Digital Converter’s mailing list also offers you the chance to be heard. Recently, you may have received an email asking you to fill out a survey on our new cloud platform. We want to hear your opinion on how a new cloud service can easily help you preserve your memories. Thank you to everyone who has already completed the survey!

New Beginnings = A New Look.

A new cloud platform is not the only change we are planning to make. Soon, we will have a completely new look on our website!

Following on from previous newsletters, I am proud to announce that we have chosen a new look for our company and are now creating a fresh logo.

The daffodils are blooming, the lambs are playing and lockdown is finally beginning to ease. At last, it is time to spring clean your house for friends and family visiting. With cleaning on the mind, here’s how our team are busily preparing for the country’s tape clear-out.

Special Offers And Discounts

We will be offering some fantastic discounts to help you digitise and clear out your large tape collections this spring. If you haven’t already, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or subscribe to our mailing list to keep up to date with our latest discounts.

Order Tracking

How our tracking page looks ahead of spring clean
In February’s newsletter, we mentioned our new and improved tracking system to keep customers informed about their orders. It is great to announce that this new system is now fully in place and we have had an incredibly positive response from customers. 

The tracking system gives you the chance to see how your media is progressing in our warehouse.

If you have recently made an order with DC, keep an eye out for a tracking email in your inbox.

New Online Store

In response to customer problems and queries about our website, we have been building and improving a new design for our online store. Our aim is to make our services simpler and clearer to use so you know exactly what you’re ordering.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks for previews of our new webstore!

Turnaround Times

After Mother’s Day, we have been really busy at DC – and unfortunately our turnaround time is slower than we would like.

Currently, small videotape orders are taking around 1 to 3 weeks and larger tape orders are closer to 4 to 6 weeks. Photos, cine film and audio orders are taking around 3 to 4 weeks, but larger orders may take longer.

If you are planning on digitising your tapes as part of your spring clean, check out our latest turnaround times on our FAQ page.
