It's An Up-All-Night Sale (Three Days Only): Half-Price Gift Certificates at Home Video Studio

Greetings Home Video Studio Customers and Friends! On Friday, we had our third baby, Emerson Claire Godfrey (girl). She weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. She's definitely a bundle of joy. In light of a very special occasion, we're offering some fantastic savings for three days only (today, tomorrow, and Wednesday). We're calling it the "Up-All-Night Sale" since we're currently not getting any sleep. :) Want that perfect gift for a loved one? Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday (November 23-25) you can purchase Home Video Studio gift certificates for half price! That's $100 worth for $50! $50 worth for $25! $25 worth for $12.50! Sure, these gift certificates will be available after Thanksgiving, but at full price. Can't get into the studio these next few days? Call us or email us and we'll mail them to you at no additional cost. How easy is that? We will be closed all weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday (Emerson's got a lot of family and friends still to meet), so act now! ~Chad

Home Video Studio March Specials

Greetings and Happy St. Patrick's Day Home Video Studio friends and customers!  This month's special truly includes a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Gold DVDs and CDs that is!  Our Gold Archival Grade DVDs and CDs preserve your family photos, home movies, and critical corporate data and offer additional protection from scratches and corrosion.

March is photo archival month and all photo orders today through March 31 are offered at an additional 20% off. Have boxes of unorganized photos, slides, or negatives?  Give 'em a makeover with our digital archival service.  Revitalize those memories onto premium grade archival gold discs.

Our digital archive service is exactly as it sounds, archival.  Your discs containing your images are 100% as good as their original many cases better due to our natural color-correction and enhancement process.  Play them on your DVD or Blu-Ray player, view them on your computer, print them, share them, email them, post them to Facebook or Flickr, or create your own custom slideshows.  They're so much more functional than they once were!

We had a client who recently experienced a devastating house fire.  No one was hurt as the family was at work and at school when the fire happened; however, they lost the entire contents of their home.  All their precious memories (photo albums, videos, etc.) were lost in the embers.  Fortunately, we created an entire digital archive of their memories nearly a year ago and, at their request, maintained copies here in the studio.  Their memories were completely restored.

Don't take risk...put it on disc!  Be proactive and backup your critical content.  Give us a call today.  In Lee's Summit (816) 246-8888 or Toll-Free (888) 636-8885.  We're ready to create some memorable experiences.

Here's to a New Year!

Now that it's nearly the 6th of January, it may sound cliché to offer you a "Happy New Year," but I truly feel one is in order.  I hope you feel renewed in this new year, ready to take on the experiences and change it will bring.

I don't know about you, but I've created a lot of goals for 2009:  family goals, health goals, business goals, and the list continues (how about just keeping up with this blog?).  The number one goal, however, is not to treat my goals like typical "resolutions" but to see them through to actual achievement this year.  This, of course, requires the break-down of each goal into action steps that are measurable.  

My aim in telling you this is accountability.  It is my hope that by broadcasting this to the world, or to the few beings that actually read this (thank you, by the way), I may keep my goals in check this year.  By the same token, I hope you find people and methods to keep your goals in check this year too.

Here's to a really great year.  May you be blessed with abundance and achievement like never before!
