Converting all your medium is as easy as buying a FOREVER Box. FOREVER sends the box to you, you fill it with your items to be converted, and then once they are converted, they are returned back to you, and your items are uploaded to a USB drive or DVD as well as to your FOREVER Storage. We now have two types of boxes; an item box and a specialty box.
In the FOREVER item box, you can choose from 2, 10, 20 items. 1 cassette = 1 item, 1 VHS = 1 item, 25 photos = 1 item.. Learn more HERE. You choose what is uploaded to your account. But I encourage you to put it into FOREVER Storage.
FOREVER Specialty Box is for just that items that are larger items to be scanned. You can find out more HERE. You pay for the box and you received that dollar value in scanning. If you have more then you will be told how much the overage will cost.
