What is the best way to preserve family photographs and memorabilia?
Family photographs and memorabilia are precious items which need to be preserved for future generations. The problem, however, is that much of the material is in paper format, which, over the years, will start to fade and disintegrate.
The best way to preserve these irreplaceable items is to have them scanned into electronic format. This can be carried out professionally by a document scanning bureau. A scanning bureau employs skilled operatives who are experienced in handling personal and often fragile material. They will scan and index the photographs and memorabilia according to your instructions.
Ideally, photographs should be grouped into time periods or named events and placed into envelopes and any memorabilia labelled by name and type. You can either send the material by registered post or deliver it personally to your supplier’s premises.
The scanned images can be mastered to either a DVD or Memory Stick and several copies can be purchased if required. Having your photographs and memorabilia scanned not only safeguards them for the future but also enables you to share your precious items with friends and families all over the world.
