Last week I went to San Jose, California, to visit the corporate headquarters of YesVideo. I’m currently one of their current Storytellers, working to spread the news about saving your family’s memories. All opinions are mine and I was not required to write about anything in particular.
My trip to California was quite an adventure all by itself. Snow and ice in Dallas meant I might have to turn around and come home, but it all worked out in the end. I’m grateful to American Airlines and YesVideo for being flexible and getting me to my destination. Thank goodness I had amazing travel buddies, fellow bloggers Lisa Frame and Rachel Ferrucci. If you are ever trapped in DFW, it should be with these two!
Once we arrived and I slept like I was in a coma, the other bloggers and I toured the YesVideo Memory Factory. Even though it’s a production facility, there’s magic in the air.
From the time your video, negatives, or film come through the door, the company has layer after layer of procedures in place to assure quality and security.
There are literally hundreds of video cameras mounted in the ceiling. If there’s any question about your finished product (like did it arrive or was it damaged) YesVideo can review its process from start to finish.
I am surprised at how many people have not heard of YesVideo. If you go to the photo counter at Costco, Sam’s Club, CVS, and other national chains, it’s YesVideo who handles the media transfers. Also, you can order a shipping kit online. It’s idiot-proof, including even the tape you’ll need to package up your media.
The company is continuing to innovate. Your photos and videos will be safeguarded in The Cloud and are easily accessible by the free YesVideo app. Now your memories can be made into gifts and keepsakes.
Plus, a partnership with Hallmark means you can add Hallmark themes and music to any of your movie clips and send them to loved ones. I’m making an e-card for my husband for Valentine’s Day out of a clip from our wedding video.
So, YesVideo protects your property, transfers it to dvd and the Cloud, and sends you back your family’s most treasured memories in a form where you can actually access them. What’s not to love? I felt like the employees care about what they are doing and are incentivized to do the very best work for you.
That sounds awesome, Anne. I’d love to know more about YES Video just from your review!

I had no idea they were the company that worked with Costco
They do great work!
I followed your traveling adventures last week and I am so glad that all of the delays were worth it. I always wondered about YesVideo—I’ve noticed you talking about them online. There is some old footage I would like to be put on DVD so I might give them a shot.
