Capturing memories on video is one way to preserve them forever. Whether you do it for yourself or future generations, you create a legacy. They say a picture speaks a thousand words but with video featuring audio, you can actually hear those words. The sooner you begin recording memories and burning the videos onto DVDs, the larger your personal video library will be.
The cost of video recorders has decreased dramatically. You can purchase a small video recorder for about $100 and larger versions with additional features and larger memory capacity cost about $300 to $500. Considering that you can capture many years of memories over the course of your lifetime, this is just pennies per recording.
Once you begin creating the DVDs, you will need somewhere to store them. Without any protection, they will be subject to dust and scratches. Individual DVD cases protect DVDs from the elements and create an organized filing system. You can even create your own DVD covers and have a gang run printing company produce them a reasonable price.
The cases are made of plastic and the DVD is placed on a spindle on one side of the interior. Using DVD covers allows you to identify the contents of each case without opening it to read the label. Include color images and font and leave space to handwrite the subject of each DVD. The covers will be printed on 100# glossy text weight paper that wraps around the front, spine, and back of the case.
Gang run printing companies take your TIF, PSD, PDF, or JPG design file and convert it to a professional-looking cover. When these cases are stored in the video library, they will look just like commercial DVD movies. For under $150, you will receive more than enough covers for the cases in your personal DVD library.
