The Taper

Bringing back those precious memories…..


Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting my site!

My name is Lee, and I am based in the heart of North Yorkshire. I’m here to help in bringing back your memories from the videos, negatives, photographs, tapes and slides you have at home.

Over the years, family and friends gave me the nickname  “The Taper”. Why? Because I have the talent, skill and ability to “tape” things like VHS cassettes and audio cassettes onto CDs and DVDs. I can also make digital images from negatives and slides, and scan digital copies of photographs.

Having earned a reputation of producing excellent results in this
field I’m making my passion my profession. I have made the decision to offer my skills to anyone who has any old precious memories stored away in  boxes, draws or cupboards. Let me move them from older formats to modern day digital technology!
