DVD Slideshow Package Pricing & Available Options

We know you have a choice of companies for your DVD slideshow project. There are big differences between what we do versus what they do. Our Platinum package is the best. What we offer in the Platinum package far exceeds what our competition offers. At best, most of the competition produces a DVD similar to our basic Gold package. See the difference for yourself. Check out an actual comparison of a video that was done by a competitor side-by-side with ours. We're absolutely 100% confident we will produce THE best DVD slideshow for you and that you will be thrilled.

Please note that one on-line preview upload is included with all packages. That preview can be viewed as many times as you want. If changes are made after the first preview, additional previews can be setup for $10 for each upload.

Music is also included for each package up to a certain number of songs. The number of songs included depends on the number of photos you have. The chart below indicates how many songs are included for the number of photos. You can have more songs than are included, but they would be at additional cost of $1.50 per song.

For Extra Large Slideshows (with more than 300 images)

Because DVD slideshows with over 300 photos are so much more work, additional costs are required for larger projects. And depending on the project, there may be additional charges for complicated scanning/organization of photos and custom features.
For DVD slideshows with over 300 photos, there is a charge for each additional image over 300 based on the package selected. For example, a Gold package DVD with 500 photos would be the base cost plus the additional photos. $375 + (400-300=100 x $2.25) = $375+$225= $600 total

Additional Options

Preview Service

One preview upload is included with all packages. Previewing enables you to see your completed (or nearly completed) video before the final DVD is produced. We up-load the video to a special page on this website that only you can access. We email you instructions how to view it. There is no limit to how many times you can view the preview. It will remain up until we remove it from the website (usually once the DVDs are shipped). See a sample of a preview page.
1st preview - Included

Additional previews @ $10 ea.

Captions

Captions are short phrases (usually 1-5 words) that are added to a photo. A certain number of captions on photos are included with each package. Up to approximately 5% of the photos can have captions at no charge. You can have as many captions as you want, but if more than 5% of photos have captions, that would be at additional cost of $2 per caption. For example, if you had 200 photos in your project, 10 captions would be included. Any more than 10 would be additional cost. See a sample of a captions page.
Up to 5% included

Over 5% @ $2 per caption

Add Video Clips

(Platinum and Gold packages only)

Video clips no longer than 2 minutes each can be added to your DVD video. We can handle most formats. IMPORTANT: $20 per clip assumes that you provide the clip, not the entire tape or video. If we have to go through a tape or video and extract a clip, additional charges will apply. If significant editing is required on clips, additional charges may apply. Please let us know between which images the video(s) should be placed.
$20.00 for each video clip up to 2 minutes (see important comment)

Add Audio/Sound Clips

(Platinum and Gold packages only)

Audio or sound clips no longer than 2 minutes each can be added to your movie. The preferred format is mp3, but we can convert any format. Please let us know over which images the audio(s) should be placed. If significant editing is required on clips, or if extensive timing coordination between the audio and the photos is required (like for a script), additional charges may apply.
$15.00 for each audio clip up to 2 minutes

Custom Testimonial/Text Slides

(Platinum and Gold packages only)

Specially designed slides with testimonials, special messages or other text with special affects. See a demo of a sample text slide. The base cost is $15. Pricing increases as the complexity of the slide increases.
Starting at $15.00 for each slide

Photo Enhancement & Restoration

(Platinum and Gold package only)

Basic photo enhancements such as cropping and red-eye removal, are included on all images. Additional enhancements such as color exposure, contrast, correction of minor surface flaws, removal of minor unwanted objects and sharpening are available for the Platinum package only.
TBD, but estimated at $10 min for each photo

Narration / Voice Over

(Platinum package only)

Adding narration/voice over to the DVD is possible. Either you can provide a pre-narrated piece or we can do it. We use professional voice over artists. Details to be determined.

Pricing TBD

Rush Orders

Typical lead-time for most projects is 10 business days from the time your materials are received. Expedited orders can be arranged for an additional charge. Expedited turn-around time of 24-48 hours is possible depending on the package selected and complexity of the project. Generally, expedited charges will apply if there are less than 10 business days from the time materials are received to the time the DVDs have to ship. Prices listed are minimums and can be higher depending on the project, situation and timing.
Minimum Charges
$30 - Silver package
$40 - Gold package
$50 - Platinum package

Continuous Loop DVD

We can format your DVD to play continuously. When the show is complete, it automatically starts again from the beginning. It will continue to play until you stop it. These are good for any type of event (i.e. birthday, rehearsal dinner, memorial services).

$15.00 each

Additional DVDs & Photo CDs

Additional copies of the DVD and/or photo CD can be ordered. If they are produced and shipped at the same time as the original order, DVDs are $15 each and photo CDs are $10 each. If they are ordered after the completion and shipment of the original order, DVDs are $25 each and photo CDs are $15 each, plus shipping.

Additional Formatting/Storage Options

We can produce a high-definition video file (in mp4 format) to play your DVD slideshow on your mobile device (i.e. smart phone, tablet, etc.). We provide the HD video file. The file is downloaded onto your computer. You then sync your computer with your mobile device. Or, the video file can be put on a flash drive and shipped back to you along with your original materials. The cost for the video file is $20. The cost for the flash drive is additional.

Expedited Shipping

Normal shipping is setup using Priority Mail from the Post Office, which typically is 3-4 days, but that is not guaranteed. Expedited, guaranteed shipping options are available through several companies like the Post Office (Express Mail), FedEx and/or UPS, including 2nd day, overnight and Saturday delivery. Additional charges will apply for these expedited services.

* For local orders only, we can also pick-up materials and drop off the final DVD when completed.
Special delivery options are charged at the actual costs to ship plus a flat fee of $10
