    This is our first time using Seattle Video Transfer and boy, what a great company to use for all your digital transferring needs! Great customer service, fast turnaround time, the services provided, the finished product - all A1! We needed a recording on a cassette tape transferred to digital/compact disc and Ryan and his team did a great job - and Seattle Video is reasonably priced! Would recommend them to anyone looking for this kind of service.

    SVT provided great service, I will use them if I ever need a service like this again.

    My sister and I wanted to surprise our brother on his 70th birthday with photos of his 3rd birthday in Guam!!! Our father had recorded it on 16mm film but we had no idea if it was still possible to view it. Of course, we needed it asap and Ryan was able to accommodate our needs! Everyone was surprised at the family reunion to see our family photos so easily! They were much higher quality then we ever expected! We are planning to have Ryan copy 6 more reels!

  • 5/5 stars July 25, 2014

    Ryan did an excellent job converting an old, well used cassette into a CD. All of the qualities of the original recording are captured on the CD.
    He also provided an MP3 copy for my PC & the service was very quick.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    What a load off of my mind that now I finally have all my 8mm tapes converted into digital format. I'm really happy that I went to Ryan. He was a pleasure to work with. He is super professional and extremely fast. I'm very happy with the result. I'd definitely recommend Ryan to my friends who need the same service.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    I found Ryan by word of mouth. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and needed a very old vinyl LP transferred to CD and I was able to make an appointment with Ryan to do this work while I was on the mainland visiting family. He was very professional and explained everything to me and actually completed the work I needed done all in the same day. I truly appreciate what he was able to do. Now I am able to listen to this very old music from my high school choir days in Portland, OR. Thank you Ryan. I will recommend him and his expertise to anyone who needs this kind of work done.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    My experience was fantastic! Super fast turn around time, (less than a week!) and very affordable. I already have dug out another VHS to send to Ryan to transfer to DVD. Highly recommended!

    I was happy to find Duplication service in Seattle and then really pleased when Ryan offered pick up and delivery. The quality of service and the 100 duplicates couldn't have been better. I plan to have Ryan transfer old films to DVD this summer.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    Ryan took old 35 mm slides and put them on a disc. The job was done on budget and on schedule. The work was more than satisfactory and I would use his services again.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    I had Seattle Video Transfer create DVDs from our old 8mm home movies. I gave them to the family members as gifts and they were all thrilled!

    Great customer service, very quick turnaround, and super quality! Highly recommended.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    I found Seattle Video Transfer via web search. I was in a hurry to get an old PAL VCR of a family vacation converted to digital in order to extract clips for my daughter's wedding. So I picked the first provider that seemed convenient. SVT was easy to use and completed the job on time without any hassles.

  • 5/5 stars September 24, 2013

    We had a number of research videos in our archive that we wanted access to in a variety of formats. Ryan did a stellar job putting these into a digital format. We plan to use them again.

  • 5/5 stars December 4, 2012

    I anxiously brought a 28 year-old VHS tape of precious home movies to Ryan, afraid that it was too old and too poorly degraded to recover. He had a very fast response time and answered all my questions and had an equally quick turn-around time for finishing the project. He also presented me with some strategy about how best to transfer the video to DVD in the most cost effective way. And the result was perfect! I was so moved to see home videos of our family that I was sure we would never be able to see again. I will bring other family videos to Ryan for sure.

  • 5/5 stars May 3, 2012

    You guys did a great job on transferring our old tapes to DVDís. The quality is very good and your service was very fast. I think you ended up doing around 35 tapes for us. I will pass your name along to other folks in Ketchikan that are thinking about getting old tapes reformatted, thanks again - Phil

    When my parents were downsizing, we found a bunch of old 8mm film reels and had no idea what was on them and what it would cost to have someone transfer the content on to DVDs. I received a prompt email bid after hours, and Ryan answered all my questions about the process. The project was completed on time and my family is thrilled with the results. We just found several more reels and will definitely use Ryan again. This company comes with my highest recommendation.

  • 5/5 stars December 12, 2011

    Ryan transferred an old mini-DV family video of mine to DVD. His turnaround time was extremely fast, he was friendly and courteous and accomodating, and he delivered a top-notch product for minimal expense (compared to other Seattle transfer facilities). I highly recommend his business!

  • 5/5 stars November 11, 2011

    Used these guys for a last minute (I mean LAST minute) video shoot I needed. Came through with flying colors and did an excellent job. Very professional, unobtrusive and cost effective. Highly recommended!!

  • 5/5 stars August 5, 2011

    Great job and fast turnaround time! Working with Ryan was a wonderful experience. He was patient in helping me to figure out what I really needed and did an excellent job. Thanks!

  • 5/5 stars June 30, 2011

    This is the second time I've used Ryan's services in the past 3 years. I had a 30 year old VHS that he was able to clean and get a clear picture written to the DVD. He was fast and local. I would recommend his services.

  • 5/5 stars June 22, 2011

    I could not have been more pleased employing Ryan to transfer 40 plus hours of Hi 8 videos of my family compiled over 18 years. He worked quick, satisfactorily answered ALL my questions, gave me options, was fiscally responsible to my budget needs and had a wonderful caring demeanor throughout. At one point I changed the photos to accompany the back of the DVDs. No problem, Ryan was gracious and patient. Customer satisfaction was his main principle. I highly recommend using Seattle Video Transfer for any/all your video transfer needs. The only thing that could have made my experience better was... if it was free!!

  • 5/5 stars May 31, 2011

    For Mother's Day I wanted to transfer 2 VHS tapes to DVD. Just a few days before I needed this completed, Ryan took on the job and finished it in three hours same day. He is quite professional. It saved me the fee of sending it somewhere out of state or waiting while Costco would send it out of state.

  • 5/5 stars May 31, 2011

    I needed a number of mini cassettes transferred to DVD for my work and Seattle Video Transfer was extremely helpful, enthusiastic, flexible and speedy in getting the order together. I priced other companies for the conversion costs and Seattle Video Transfer was by far the best price. I highly recommend this company and will call them again with my future projects. I am happy to support a well-run local business that prioritizes customer happiness.

  • 5/5 stars May 24, 2011

    I had a single video of a childhood play that was recorded over 20 years ago. Seattle Video Transfer did an awesome job and was so fast. Ryanís turnaround time was under 24 hours and he was professional and friendly every step of the way. I opted for custom packaging and Ryan provided a zany, creative touch which made it the perfect gift for my family in addition to a precious keepsake for me. I was thoroughly delighted by the finished product and will definitely use Seattle Video Transfer and Ryan again for any future video transfer needs.

  • 5/5 stars May 3, 2011

    Ryan produced a wonderful custom video recording of my sonís senior piano concerto at his high school. From meeting me at the performance center before the concert to check out the venue, to putting up with all the family requests, to editing several versions of the final video, Ryan was professional, friendly, reassuring, and just a pleasure to work with. He is detail-oriented, on-time, and has a ready smileóall very important for anxiety-producing situations. We are so happy to have found him for this project and would trust him with capturing any similar once-in-a-lifetime event.

  • 5/5 stars April 11, 2011

    This is the 2nd project that I used Ryan for and as always he did an amazing job. I would recommend his services to anyone and will continue use him myself for any DVD, video, or media project. He went above and beyond to original request to provide a product that far exceeded my expectations. I also ran into some unforeseen challenges with the timing of the project and he put in extra time to make sure this was done so I could meet a deadline. The creativity that goes into the projects and the quality of the final product is second to none. I highly recommend his services.

  • 5/5 stars April 1, 2011

    Ryan did a great job transferring 50+ year old 8mm movie film to a DVD. The picture quality was excellent given the condition of some of the film. The movies were all of family gatherings and most people have passed on. My mother-in-law was thrilled with being able to see so many relatives from her youth. My husband and I will be visiting his parents this summer (in MI) and we both look forward to viewing again with his mom and dad. With the magic of current technology it is great to give a gift of memories to family members.

    I have two grown daughters who are very close, but one lives on the east coast, and the other lives on the west coast. I thought a DVD with edited film and photos of their childhood would be a wonderful Christmas gift for them, as well as a way to preserve VHS footage that had been tucked away. I found Seattle Transfer while searching the Internet. Ryan Graves was a pleasure to work with, and the turn-around time was impressive. He provided a beautiful DVD that we all treasure. It brought this mother to tears! I highly recommend Ryan and Seattle Transfer.

  • 5/5 stars February 28, 2011

    Friends from church told us about this company and we were very pleased with all the owner gave us. He was so knowledgeable and so professional and our project turned out so beautiful. We were a bit anxious about all the details but he alleviated our anxiety with his help. He did a second project for us soon after that and it was extremely impressive. In fact, my boss saw it and ordered the same project for corporate HQ.
