SUBMIT YOUR VHS FOR GRADING
Send us your favorite VHS tape to receive a grade and authentication.
- Carefully wrap each item in 1-2 layers of bubble wrap, or use protective cases designed specifically for your item(s) when available. For items with box flaps, a piece of cardboard or similar hard material should be placed behind the item box to support the flap before wrapping the item in bubble wrap.
- Place bubble-wrapped item(s) in a large enough box to allow for 3 of padding on every side of the item. Fill in all additional space with sufficient packaging material (packaging peanuts, etc.) to keep the item(s) stationery. Do not overfill the box with packaging material – this can damage the item by causing a plastic window to collapse, etc.
NOTE: For all high-value items, VHSDNA recommends double-boxing (placing a box containing the item into a larger outer shipping box).
- Secure your box with packaging tape and send it fully insured to VHSDNA’s current address.
Casing Stage – Grade labels for your items are printed and sealed inside the acrylic case designed to custom fit your items. A final quality control check for grade and label accuracy is performed by a senior grader prior to placing your items in their respective acrylic cases and sealing them. If any discrepancies are found, the affected items are sent back to the Final Grading Stage.
VHS DISPLAY CASE
From the start, the main goal of VHSDNA has been to preserve and display your treasured VHS tapes. To us, these have always been valuable collectibles. Use of our services, grading and authentication, ensures that the rarest and most original tapes are properly honored for posterity. After months of prototyping, VHSDNA has arrived on a design worthy of your attention.
Nested solidly, your tape will “float,” displaying the VHS sleeve art prominently behind a subtle VHSDNA log. We are particularly proud of the aesthetic of our final case.
Our encapsulation method goes the extra mile. A single millimeter of our acrylic would suffice to shield a VHS sleeve from damaging UV rays. When you receive your VHS, six millimeters of acrylic will protect her from the Sun and pretty much anything else in your home.
