You can give them something they’ll truly love and which will bring them joy for a long long time to come.

I am so excited to be able to give this as a gift for my Mother’s 80th Birthday. The process is simple but the outcome is amazing. I am gathering the messages now and so far everyone has been excited about participating. Thank you for this awesome service. Everyone needing that special gift should give it a try.

I had a colleague whose family member used LifeOnRecord for his 70th birthday, and I held onto the information. I just used it for a very close friend’s 80th birthday and contacted her family members all over the country to send greetings. They were impressed with the idea and kids, grandkids, other family members andfriends left wonderful messages! I’m sure she will be touched by the greetings. It was so easy to use and monitor the greetings to know who to contact about deadlines for leaving messages. And, although I ordered the CD from LifeOnRecord, I really appreciate the option to download everything to iTunes!  I wanted to also send a personal THANK YOU for your service.  It is a very creative way for people to express their sentiments to others in a slightly more personal way than just an email or posting!  As a business professor, I tell my students all the time about innovative, small companies, and I will certainly tell them about yours! Good work and best wishes for continued success! I’d recommend this product/service to ANYONE!
Bonnie O'Neill
Husband said his Life On Record gift was the best ever for his 40th birthday. I was so nervous to give it to him since he’s quite particular about gifts! BUT, this was a surprise for him and he just can’t get over how awesome it was! It was so easy to do too. Thank you so much!!!

I purchased Life on Record for my Dad’s 80th birthday and it was the hit of the party. He loved it. Family from all over the country called and told wonderful stories and shared special moments. My Dad continues to listen to it over and over. I loved this idea and will continue to use it for special occasions. It was an affordable thing to do for such a special event.
Carol Jean Boris
We used Life On Record for my mother’s 80th birthday. My Mum got loads of presents but without doubt this touched her the most. From recording of hand chimes from her campanology friends to reminiscences from her twin brother of life in the womb!! and a dozen loving memories in between we all remembered and laughed our way through her lifetime stories. This a fantastic way to recall events I would recommend it to everyone.
Paul Timmins
Made a CD for my Mom’s birthday. She loved it! Great gift idea!
Lynda Byczynski Green
I love LifeOnRecord. I used it for my mother’s 90th Birthday and my husband’s 65th. They were each so happy to hear the voices and memories from friends and family members that they had not seen in years. My husband tricked my mother into recording a song she likes to sing on her recording and I used it as a background song for the video I showed at the party with old photos of her. It made it very special and will be a great memory for years to come.
Doralece Dullaghan
A giant thank you to LifeOnRecord and the many friends and family members that contributed to our 90th birthday greeting for my mom. She will be so touched by the messages and will be able to listen to it over and over!
LeeAnn Glatz
We used LifeOnRecord to create a CD for my Dad’s 90th birthday, and it has been absolutely wonderful. We had over 40 recordings from family and friends (even some high school friends!) across the country! Everybody enjoyed participating, and it could not have been easier for them, or for us! The staff/owner was easy to reach and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this site for a wonderful, unique keepsake gift that will be treasured for years to come.
Janine Barnett Honda
My mother was in tears, laughing and so appreciative of her wonderful LifeOnRecord CD. There were 25 messages for her on her 80th birthday! I would highly recommend this wonderful product for that special occasion!

Discover the No Risk Gift the Recipient will LOVE… or It’s Free

How can we make such a promise?

Because we have a 10+ year track record of hearing how much people love LifeOnRecord.

Recipients tell us they love hearing voices of friends and family talking about their positive traits and talents.

They love capturing the voices of kids at a special time.

And we often hear that after a loved one who called in passes away, hearing their voice on the keepsake brings comfort.

We take pride in the fact that nearly everyone that purchases LifeOnRecord would purchase it again.

That’s how we can make our promise.

We know that the vast majority of the time the recipient will love their LifeOnRecord gift, but if you don’t, we’ll refund your money with no hassle or pushback.

Got Questions? We have Answers...

Here are the top 5 frequently asked questions we receive from our customers.

You can create one of the most memorable gifts in the world in as little as 1-2 days.  We've had people purchase LifeOnRecord one afternoon, email everyone (and post on Facebook) that same evening asking them to call in within the next 24 hours, and present the recordings to the recipient the very next evening. On the other hand, people that love to plan things ahead will sign-up months before an event. LifeOnRecord is flexible to your timeline. Here are some helpful tips if you are short on time:
  • You will receive your account instructions email within just a few minutes after ordering online (if you don't see it right away, make sure to check your spam or junk folder). We provide a sample communication that you can copy and paste to send to people. That communication asks others to forward the email on, so that you can cast the net wide.
  • People really don't need that much time to call in. Just make sure you give them a deadline (we give you some helpful tips in your account instructions email).
  • Even if you order a keepsake, you can deliver the recordings electronically to the recipient on the day of the event, and tell them the nice keepsake will arrive later. That way the recipient has something to play on their birthday or anniversary, and can still look forward to receiving a keepsake.
  • If the recipient lives far away you can send them a link to a special public web page just for them that has the recordings. You can label the recordings so they are meaningful (e.g. "Bob Smith's Birthday Wish"), and sequence them in a way that makes sense to make it more meaningful.
  • You can request the keepsake at any point within a year after ordering. As long as you request the keepsake by 3PM Central time, we ship it out the next business day. Keepsakes take 3-6 days to arrive with the free shipping option, although delivery time is not guaranteed.  We also have options to ship via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days), FedEx 2-Day, and FedEx Overnight.
LifeOnRecord is available from every country on the planet! Callers from the US, Canada, and Caribbean can call toll-free: 1-800-437-3009. Callers from outside the US, Canada, and Caribbean have six free options to contribute recordings:
  1. Use Skype - Callers can phone-in by dialing 1-800-437-3009 using Skype (this is treated as a free call in most countries). If you are in a country that does not allow free Skype calling to toll free numbers, you can instead make a free call to the Skype name "LifeOnRecord1" which will route you to the same place as the toll-free number. Note: The Skype User LifeOnRecord1 may not show as online in Skype, but you will still be able to connect to it. You may need to wait a few seconds for the connection to be made.
  2. Use one of our "local" global numbers. Callers can dial one of the local country phone numbers listed below which route directly to LifeOnRecord.
