Is there anyone who provides a service for scanning memorabilia?
Scanning memorabilia is an ideal way of preserving all kinds of precious and irreplaceable family keepsakes. It is inevitable that, anything kept in its original paper or card based format will succumb to the ravages of time and will start to fade and disintegrate and then be lost forever. To ensure that your family history is preserved for future generations it is well worth considering having your ‘memories’ converted into electronic format, keeping them safe for all time.
There are document scanning bureau which specialise in the scanning of photographs and memorabilia and they employ experienced staff who will handle any fragile or delicate material with the greatest care. Memorabilia can consist of a wide range of material including correspondence, diaries, certificates, greeting cards, school reports and children’s paintings. These can all be scanned along with photographs to create digital scrap books which can be accessed by and shared with family and friends all over the world.
The scanned images can be named or numbered and grouped into folders according to your preferences. There is usually a minimum order value but any size order will be accepted.
