About Us

Let us tell you a little about what we do here.

We have found that there are many people, from all generations, and all walks of life, that have a conundrum. The digital age is at hand. We have moved on from the world of analog tapes, video tapes and printed media. Many of us have boxes of cherished memories that are no longer view-able, or shareable. They take up space, and we can't even enjoy them!  We will digitize your older media to let you share them now, and for generations to come.

Why should I digitize?

 Many people don't realize that photo film, video and audio tape degrade over time. It is not a viable long-term storage medium. It is no longer easy or cost-effective to replace your cassette player, your VCR or even the needle on your record player! But, we are here to help. We will digitize your older media, and allow you to see and hear the moments and the memories that you may have been missing. Once digitized, you will be able to share, with ease, these memories with loved ones. 

Why should I choose The Digital Transfer?

At The Digital Transfer, we take a very personal approach to evolving and preserving your older media. All of your media will be digitized in its original form, the way you remember it. We pride ourselves on a personal customer experience, in an industry that sorely lacks a personal approach. Through care, and by recording in real-time to assure the utmost quality, we preserve the most authentic and original copy of your media possible. All of our digitizing is done in-house, and we take every precaution to safeguard your privacy. We are in contact with our customers throughout the process, to be sure that they receive a final product which they are happy to pass on to future generations.

Our Team

Jason Safdie - Founder, Head of Sales

Jason started this business for one simple reason - he cares. He believes in taking the time and care necessary for such emotionally sensitive work is of utmost importance in this industry, where this kind of personalized service is often lacking.  He believes in precision, quality and serving the individual and that no one should ever feel that they are just a number. Most importantly, he makes sure the job is always done to the customer's satisfaction.  

Susan Lacoste - Graphic Design, Technical Specialist

Susan's thirst for knowledge, great attention to detail, problem solving skills and technical knowledge are invaluable to the business. Although she calls herself a graphic designer, Susan has designed this website, manages our advertising campaigns, interfaces old machinery to new, is in charge of accounting and databases, and does much of the in depth photo editing.  



Quick, efficient, reasonable prices. Ensures there is no miscommunication and you get what you asked for. It’s a small operation that gets the job done with no nonsense.

The copies of the more than 50-year-old snapshots were better than the originals. I highly recommend Jason Safdie’s [The Digital Transfer’s] artistic work!

Jason and Susan did a very good job transferring old sermons and music from magnetic tape to CD, which we could use on our church website. Later for our church`s 45th anniversary they made a nice presentation from our old photos, so we could look back on the past years. Whenever we communicated or discussed the job to be done, they were helpful, polite, and knowledgeable. We recommend them highly.

I found The Digital Transfer while searching on the Internet for someone to digitize about 500 of my father’s slides. I needed them done in a timely manner and didn’t feel good about sending them off in the mail. I called Susan and Jason and they made the whole process so easy and fun. They were very communicative and checked in with me along the way about my preferences. 

Above all the results were wonderful!! On Father’s Day I was able to show everyone in the family a “slide” show from my computer connected to a large screen tv and gave each member of the family a DVD copy. 

- Chris Gluck



The incredible work that Jason did at scanning and cataloging my entire life's work of photographs, slides and vinyl collection was far and beyond that of what I could have hoped for or expected. He approached the work personally, with genuine interest, care for the preservation of my memories and with a keen sense of how to organise things in the most efficient way. I am eternally grateful to him for the respect he showed to the material and to the mastery with which he approached the job!
