How we charge for what we do?
Considering the time, we put into each “song”, what we charge, typically breaks down to a $15-$20/hour cost to you, including edited video clips, photo organizing, music purchases and so much more. On average, each song creatively displays 60-80 photos, but we can create Memvio Picture Videos with as little as 20 and as many as 120 photos per song. Our slides are not templates ready to plug pictures in whether the theme fits or not. THEY ARE CUSTOM! Your Memvio designer will work with you to create a truly custom video for you.
Being able to offer such a specialized service does not come without expenses and a lot of incredible talent. Great customer experience, quality control and custom work is what is most important to us as a company. Professional picture video services is not “cheap” (we’ve never claimed —it is), but it’s not that expensive either, especially if you take advantage of our monthly subscription programs. What we do, is exceptional quality custom work and our customers agree, “is worth every penny”, what you receive is VERY SPECIAL — the rewards are endless — a heirloom you will cherish and enjoy forever. Forever, by the way, is a really long time.

Our design team then begins the custom concept phase, to date we have yet to complete this phase in less than 20 minutes per slide —literally some slides takes us days (often hours) to develop a concept (we truly strive to create a concept that will re-tell your special memory(s). Sometimes our original concept idea needs to go back to the drawing board because once we tried it —it just didn’t work.
(labor time: minimum 45-minutes to multiple hours — often, several designers collaborating together for the PERFECT design)
Once we have a solid design concept, we begin the slide creation phase:

A Little Food for Thought:
How much did you spend on your wedding day? How much did you spend on a photographer? What have you done with the pictures from your wedding day, that you spent so much money on?
How much did you or are you going to spend on your baby stroller? Are you getting an UPPAbaby? Whatever stroller you decided on, someday —that investment (which is very large) will make its way to a garage sale or Goodwill along with a lot of other VERY expensive baby products. But, you decided these investments are good investments — no matter how much they cost. You want the best for your baby, right?
Well, you are correct —your baby deserves the best, especially preserving and enjoying their childhood memories. STOP PROCRASTINATING! ORDER TODAY
Contemplate the following:
Do you pay for Starbucks (or similar) every day (or weekly) vs making coffee at home and saving money? What is your coffee monthly budget?
Do you go out for a weekly (or more) happy hour night out —to “unwind” after work?
Do you and your spouse go out for a special night out at your favorite restaurant at least once a month?
Do you pay for a gym membership, that you (because of your busy schedule) —don’t stay 100% committed to?
If you think about it, the above list can go on and on.

Are you seriously going to indulge in the above, here today and gone tomorrow daily indulgences and then choose not to preserve your families memories forever?
18 years from baby-to-grad is a REALLY, REALLY long time for you to try to DIY, and —take my word for it —-you won’t do it, for 18+ years. If you do, it will end up costing you more (especially if you take into consideration your time, than if you were to retain Memvio. Believe me, I know —I’ve been there, done that!
