"LifeOnRecord was an absolutely perfect way to celebrate mother's day"

Did you ever think about why we celebrate mother's day? We could treat it just like any other day, but it's important to help your mother pause her life and reflect on the impact she has made on others.

With a simple toll-free call, LifeOnRecord lets friends and family record their mother's dat well-wishes, congratulations, gratitude, and encouragement.

Callers feel honored to participate, and its simple for anyone to contribute to the keepsake regardless of where they live.

LifeOnRecord collects everyone's personal recordings and creates a unique and special audio keepsake which becomes more meaningful with the passage of time.

How it Works

Friends and family call a toll-free number and hear a personal greeting from you inviting them to leave a favorite story, memory, or wish. The caller leaves a meaningful message and has the option to review what they recorded and re-record it if necessary.

You as the coordinator have complete control - and you'll have as much fun as the recipient!

As each recording comes in, it's available on our website within seconds. You'll be able to play the recordings online and through iTunes, and you'll have control over what recordings make it to the final CD and in what order.

Listen to Recordings Online

You can either download the recordings to your computer for free and make your own CD, or we'll send you one.

It's that simple!

A surprisingly affordable price, for a priceless gift!

Despite the current economy, we want you to have the opportunity to be able to give this gift to someone special, so we have temporarily reduced the basic price from $89.99 to $49.99.

The LifeOnRecord service itself costs $89.99 $49.99 (Limited Time Special Offer). For that price you receive a toll-free number for family and friends to leave messages for the event, the ability to play and monitor the recordings online, and the ability to make CDs using iTunes. For the $49.99 fixed price:

  • As many people can call in as you want, and each person can record a message that is up to 30 minutes in length. Callers can even leave multiple messages! There are no limits on the number of calls you receive.

  • The toll-free number is active within a few minutes after you sign-up, and expires after one year. You can download your recordings, and make or request CDs at any point in time. Everything is under your control.

  • You will be able to monitor and play the recordings on our web site, and download individual recordings. With the included iTunes integration, you can easily make entire CDs, with the "tracks" you desire, in the sequence you want.
Be a Mother's Day Gift Hero!

You can make your own CDs, or we can create them for you.

Although you can download your recordings for free into iTunes (which itself is a free download for PCs and Macs) and burn your own CDs, we can also create personalized keepsake CDs packaged in a distinctive metal case for an additional $24.99. You pay the same $24.99 price even if it takes multiple CDs to fit all your recordings!

So, if you buy the CD set, the total price comes to $114.98 $74.98 plus shipping. (Shipping is about $6.50 for USPS Priority Mail shipping with Delivery Confirmation).

Quick Turnaround

You'll receive an email with your account information and instructions the same day that you sign-up for the service. When you are ready to have us create your CDs, just let us know and we'll compile the recordings, personalize the CDs with a printed message on the front, and ship them out the next day.

People have been able to sign up for the service, have everyone call in the next day, and then present the CDs to a loved one the day after that. If you create the CDs yourself, the turnaround time can be even quicker.

"A meaningful, highly-personal gift that's simple and easy to create"

Although people change, memories fade, and stories tend to get lost, you'll be giving a gift that captures and preserves feelings and stories.

LifeOnRecord collects everyone's personal recordings and creates a keepsake which becomes even more meaningful with the passage of time.

"Voices convey personality”

Has there ever been an answering machine message or voicemail that you've wanted to save?

The words that were said are only part of what makes those messages special.

What really makes people sentimental for those recordings is that voices convey personality, which makes the message more meaningful than the same words written in a card.

First, I want to tell you how LifeOnRecord is WONDERFUL! The feedback from the people who participated in my mother’s 75th birthday has been and have been AWESOME.  Everyone loves the idea of your company, I love the idea of your company and I wanted to encourage you. Thank you and I pray that you will continue to prosper with LifeOnRecord.

This was a special event for me and my family and LifeOnRecord made my mother's birthday even more special.

L'Tarra Moore, Atlanta, Georgia

This was one of the best gifts my daughter, Chandler, has ever received in her life. In the world today, not many things are meaningful and really make an impact, but hearing Chandler's CD almost made me cry. I had people from 9 different states and 2 from Canada call in and leave messages.

I explained what the CD was about, and she couldn't wait to listen to it. When we got home, she ran and got her CD player and began listening. You could see her face begin to glow. She was soooo touched and she was about to cry. She could not believe all of the people that had called in and left such sweet and funny messages. She then listened to the CD again, and again, and again.

The CD is a gift she will have for the rest of her life and she will always be able to listen to all of the kind words for years to come. Yes, I think letters are great, but to hear the voices on this CD speaking directly to Chandler was amazing. What a great gift !! She has already asked me to do this for her when she gets married.... jumping the gun a little bit - but I think it would be a great idea too.

I wasn't quite sure how this would turn out when I ordered it for my husband's 50th birthday, but I was very, very happy with the resulting gift. It went over magnificently and it's something my husband really enjoys listening to.

Julie Shey, Henderson, Nevada

You were right, there were some things people felt more comfortable recording over the phone than telling my wife in person. It was a unique birthday present. Everyone who called in thought this was a terrific idea.

Seymour Brant, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

A quick note to tell you that this went over GREAT with my sister! When we gave her the CD she was speechless. It was everything I thought it would be. Thank you for all your help.

Jessica Schneider, Chesapeake, Virginia

I just wanted to express how happy my daughter was with this gift.  We were taking Sarah and 3 of her friends to a concert on her actual birthday.  We told her we wanted her to listen to a new CD that we had just purchased.  I'm sure you can imagine her reaction with her friends in the car.  She's the youngest of 5 so we are older than her friends parents and she doesn't always like our choice of music. The eyes were rolling... 

The first voice was a very dear male friend....she screamed...then the next message, she screamed some more...I was sitting beside her and she was so excited.  Her friends did keep the secret and she turned and said with wide eyes, "You guys knew about this and you kept it a secret, this
is the coolest gift I could ever receive!"

Thank you for "Life on Record" as she will never forget her 16th Birthday. By her friends standards, I'm now the coolest Mom.  That works and I've been giving you company praise and referrals so I hope this helps your business.

Sarah Presley, Noblesville, Indiana

We all called in and made this a surprise gift for my father's 65th birthday. The CD was nicely packaged in the silver case, and made an impact even before anyone listened to it.

We all listened to the CD together with my father, and it was absolutely wonderful. I learned a lot about my father that I didn't know. My father isn't an emotional man, but I was sitting across from him when we listened to it, and he was clearly moved. This was a great way to celebrate his life so far.

Excerpts from Voicemail for Life Story Memoirs - Trend Hunter Magazine

Everybody has one person that is impossible to buy a present for, be it a dad, wife, or grandparent. I have one; he’s a 70 year-old adventurer who buys what he wants, and returns the rest. He has enough gadgets and “stuff” for three people. But this year on his birthday, he got something that reflected his life of friends and stories. It was a sentimental and unique birthday gift called LifeOnRecord that allowed his friends and family from across the country to dial a toll-free number and record a message up to 30 minutes in length.

Excerpts from Hearing is Believing, Chicago Sun-Times News Group

As Rick Kerman and his son, Josh, drove home from Wisconsin last weekend, the disc in the car's CD player wasn't playing the latest sounds of one particular group. Instead, their 13-year-old son listened to a variety of voices, some he knew, some he didn't, talk about him, his parents, his family or just about life, in general. One particular anecdote caught his attention. His late uncle's manager shared some thoughts, stories and heartfelt emotions about his uncle Andy, who died in 1984 before Josh even got to know him.

"It was a whole different perspective of information that Josh didn't know about my brother, and that I didn't even know," said Northbrook resident Carol Kerman, Josh's mother. Kerman's brother was Andy Kaufman, the "Saturday Night Live" icon probably best known for his role as Latka Gravas on the TV series, "Taxi."...

..."The stories were poignant, and gave people a chance to reflect," Kerman said of the keepsake CD, which was a gift for Josh's Bar Mitzvah. "In this age, we don't have the time or make the time to do much reflecting."

Excerpts from All You Need Are the Memories - Fox News

The older you get, the harder it can be to remember the funny, touching, and most exciting times of your life... Why not let technology help you say, "Thanks for the memories" from your teenage years to your golden years. The site can work in several ways, helping you record memories from your wedding, special events or just everyday life.

For weddings and special events, give the phone number out on a small card with instructions for each guest to call and leave a special message for the bride and groom or the host... You can even try having guests RSVP for a party or wedding by using the LifeOnRecord phone number, while also leaving a story. 

...Recording your memories and stories to CD's can make the perfect gift for weddings, birthday parties or even to use as an audio time capsule. And with LifeOnRecord.com, all you need are the memories.
