Download your forms here. You will need the High Definition Film Transfer Form and the Contact Information with Terms and Conditions form.
Please read carefully for details.
Your shipping documentation is made up of a contact sheet (w/ signed Term and Conditions) and HD Film order form – download from links below. Shipping labels from your local post office or courier like UPS or FedEx are created when the parcel is ready to ship at their location.
Fill in the HD Order Form with what you can or want done, along with your signature on the Terms and Conditions sheet. Fill in any additional information you feel will make your order a successful delivery. Use extra paper if need be. Please read all of the enclosed documents carefully to ensure an accurate description of your request is conveyed. Please write or check your selections clearly.
International orders will require a Commercial Invoice if you plan to use a bonded courier like FedEx or UPS (recommended). The local FedEx or UPS store can help you fill out these forms. It’s easy. Declare a value of less than $20 total for your shipment(s). Old film reels have no real monetary value in the eyes of the shipping services and in precedent. Liability is limited to media item replacement only – not content.
The formal Commercial Invoice requirement can be avoided if you use the postal service. If you plan to use the postal service please make sure you use an expedited level of service that provides insurance and a tracking number. International orders using the Postal Service is not really recommended. Tracking services if necessary to exercise are more difficult once your package crosses the border.
